WiFi Mobile Hotspot error after KITKAT update, then WiFi Can't be enabled

Posted on Nov 28, 2013 10:16 AM, Xda-developers | forum.xda-developers.com

After updating my google play unlocked Nexus 4 to Kit Kat 4.4, I've been constantly having problems with my WiFi being stuck in off mode.
Turning on WiFi would get the toggle stuck, while it's Grey too, and it stays stuck. Solution was to turn on and off airplane mode. Then wifi works again.
I've now realized this is triggered every time I try to enable the mobile WiFi Hotspot. It shows Error next to the check box and no WiFi network is broadcasted. I tried barnacle tether and FoxFi, and neither work. Has kit Kat broken any WiFi broadcasting? Tethering works just fine for me over USB. Something is wrong with the WiFi. Has anyone else been having this problem?
Here's some screenhots.

Mobile Hotspot Detection in Jellybean and KitKat

Posted on Nov 25, 2013 12:31 PM,

Hello everyone. Recently, I flashed several KitKat ROMs as I very much wanted to experience the updates. However, my hopes were cut short when I realized that unlike 4.3 ROMs, Mobile Hotspot simply refuses to work if you've gone over your limit (in my case, 4.5GB). In 4.3, jt would merely redirect...

4.4 KitKat Update - Moto X, Sprint

I imagine everyone has the same update on KitKat. But I just want to share what I've noticed as different and would like to hear others' experience with this (another thread might exist of this, but I can't find it...) 1. The Wifi/mobile data color changed from blue (which I prefer) to white ...

Using the default Verizon mobile hotspot on cm11 I have had no issues connecting with anything other than my 360. It shows it I enter the key and it claims an IP error... I tried to get wifi tether treve mod to work, but no dice it won't start and I can't figure it out. Any help?...

T Mobile GN2 (T889) Wifi Tether on Stock JB 4.3?

Posted on Mar 12, 2014 11:33 AM,

Root is done, but can't get wifi tether working on stock JB 4.3 on T-Mobile. I tried both Wifi Tether Router and Wifi Treve Mod 3.3 pre, but they don't work. It seems like the issue is on the mobile hotspot installed which cannot be uninstalled on any apps: tried Titanium, Root App Delete, Root Explorer ...

Anyone having problems with mobile hotspot/tethering lately? I have a tiered plan, so it should be included, and I've used it before (though I am definitely not a frequent tetherer), but when I turned it on this morning to try to update my Kindle, I got nothing. When I clicked the box to...

Use the phone as mobile hotspot only

Posted on Sep 24, 2014 3:46 AM,

I have a DNA running insertcoin 3.0.7 that is a back up phone (use it on wifi only, no sim). My question is, if I get a SIM for data-only plan (like T-Mobile's mobile internet $20/1GB), would I be able to turn on tethering on the phone and have it act as a mobile hotspot?...

iPad wifi only + mobile hotspot

I have an iPad Air 1 wifi + LTE I think I should have bought wifi only iPad because I already have Clearwire mobile hotspot so I think I made a mistake? Also AT&T charged 250MB data for iPad which seems not enough for me so I use Clearwire unlimited data plan for all devices. :apple:...

HTC One owners in the UK might be left scratching their heads after the Android 4.4 KitKat update was mysteriously pulled by the OEM due to “issues.” This is after the update began officially hitting handsets last week, and although no word on specific bugs was given, HTC did confirm...

Support Knock-On issue after KitKat update (T-Mobile)

Ok, so maybe more of a" Knock-Off" issue I suppose. Before the KitKat update I was able to double-tap the notification bar while in an app to turn off the screen. I'm no longer able to do that after the update. Anyone else encountered this issue or know of a fix? TIA...

Radio issues after kitkat update
