Hotspot Toggle Widget

Hotspot Toggle Widget


A simple widget to toggle Android's portable WiFi hotspot (wireless tether) functionality. This does not provide hotspot functionality by its own, it is a widget to toggle the built-in hotspot from the home screen.

Works on Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, & Jelly Bean (GB, ICS, JB, 2.3, 4.0, 4.1)

Features:
- No root required.
- Supports Jelly Bean (latest Android release)
- Uses native artwork for GB (2.3+), ICS (4.0+), & JB (4.1+).
- Restores original WiFi state.
- Keeps the SSID & security settings intact.
- Is "Free" a feature?

Tested Devices:
- Google/HTC Nexus One (N1)
- Google/Samsung Nexus S
- Google/Samsung Galaxy Nexus (GNEX)
- Verizon Galaxy Nexus (VZW GNEX)
- Samsung Galaxy S II (SGS2, S2)
- Samsung Galaxy S III (SGS3, S3)
- Known issues with EVO/Sprint devices (carrier might block tethering)

Note: It will only show up in the widget menu, not with the application menu. If it doesn't show up due to Android 4.0+, then Force-Close your launcher (If you don't know what this means, then simply restart your phone and it should pop-up).

Please rate it favorably if you like our work.

No Lollipop for you! This was among my long-time faves up thru HyperDrive rom (KitKat 4.4.2), but when moving to stock (unlocked/rooted) Nexus6, with Lolli 5.0.1, this widget no longer works consistently. It successfully disables WiFi client, but fails to activate the Hot-Spot. And toggling again fails to re-enable WiFi client either. (v1.2 tested).
