    WiFi hotspot broken? Android 4.2.1

    I'm running a Nexus 4 on Android 4.2.1 and can't get WiFi hotspot working.

    Is this a known issue?

    Thanks.

    I cant get it to work on a Razr either... Looks as though this has something to do with JB...

    I was able to get mine working
    See if you can edit the apn type
    The only downside is no mms once you change it
    APN type: dun

    I haven't had any issues with mine. Does it not let you switch it on at all, or does it just not work once you do?

    It wouldn't work once I switched it on. My computer said it was connected but I couldn't get internet.

    Still broken in 4.2.2. I need MMS so I can't change that.
