1. Open "ES File Explorer". Go to the left side in "Fast Access" in the "Tools" section and then enable "Root Explorer" to have root permissions on the file browser.
2. Remove the Oldest "TetheringProvision.apk" and "TetheringProvision.odex" in system/app and replace with "TetheringProvision.apk" in: system/app
check and set permission rw-r--r--
Pros: Work with another Carrier.
Cons: Maybe not work well for at&t carrier, FC in ART Mode.
note: I'll post it in case someone needs it.
I just purchased an SM-G900A ATT s5 from ebay and I am getting that dang Hotspot not available error also.
I am using a Straight Talk ATT sim so the phone does work well everything EXCEPT the HotSpot!
I am assuming this is because it is not unlocked? I haven't rooted it yet, but am considering trying your fix.
My main question other than is it NOT rooted is will this fix work on the G900A? the type in your image is a 'S5 2828'.
Thanks in advance!
