Are you asking or stating? If you are stating, then you may have gotten a bad download. I just re-verified the download and all is well. The file is very small.

After reboot, original build.prop is back and the vzw files dropped the .bak. I am rooted, but not unlocked so wp is on, and I guess native tether is not gonna work. Didn't try it before reboot though.

Product of wp being on. You can try to open my build.prop and copy and paste the entire prop into your file effectively replacing the contents. See if that takes.

To enable native tether, obviously. Search is your friend.

@Topsnake, is it possible to rig your previous MOD ([MOD][ROOT]Native Wireless Tether for build 19.6.3) for 4.4.4?

It appears that having a modded VZWEntitlementServices.apk which takes care of the native tether and only that is a cleaner solution than modifying the build.prop as the latter is referenced a lot by many processes which, consequently, could lead to far reaching side effects.

BTW, do you know if anyone tried your VZWEntitlementServices.apk on 4.4.4?

Thought I replied to this.

The 19.5.3 would probably work for 4.4.4 but I haven't tried it.

The build.prop is a much cleaner install when done correctly.
