    Can we use Wifi tether after rooting Sprint LG G2?

    • Destry

      Haven’t tested it yet but this thread says you can tether now.

      • Destry

        Tested and it works but it only seems to work once per boot. So you have to reboot before you use it a second time. They are still trying to figure that out.

    I don’t understand. There are no drivers for my Sprint LG-G2 ? Your link does not have them, and LG support says that they don’t exist for our phones model. Then how are you getting drivers???????

  • KKazaryan

    Does this work with the recent Verizon update

  • Eddie

    I rooted my Sprint LG G2, tried to use the tethering app and no luck whatsoever. I emailed QBKIng on this and got no response back. Does anyone have any solutions to figuring out the tether app to work with this rooted phone? Also any ideas on how to unroot back to stock.

  • George

    Will you be posting a video on how to unroot?

  • Nelson Yamb√≥

    New update from Sprint unroots your phone and you can’t use this method to root. What say you QbKing77?

  • JanneJulma

    Can i update OTA to kitkat when rootet?

    I clicked the download button on this page thinking I had the files I needed to root my phone, and it downloaded a bunch of crap onto my computer, locked out all my data, and caused me to have to spend a lot of time fixing it and cleaning it up. I appreciate what you’re doing for people here, but taking ads from unscrupulous assholes, designed to trick people is a pile of BS. Sorry, but you ran me away from your site.
