    The whole point of FoxFi is that it gives you the ability to tether without the need to root your phone. A rooted phone can be tethered more easily since the things that the carriers do to prevent it are more easily circumvented.

    The advice to seek help on the xda-developer forum is very good, there are likely people there that are familiar with your phone and how to make it work with your carrier.

    I had a Sprint LG G1 (it had another name but it was basically the G1 now that the G2 and G3 have come out) and FoxFi (a certain version) would work with it but only after it was rooted. FoxFi might work on other carriers for non-rooted phones but it never worked on my LG G1 until it was rooted.
