Default [Q] Wifi tether w/ Root 4.4.2 XT1060

Searched around the forums and couldnt seem to find an answer or it turns into a foxfi/pda+ help thread. Wondering if anyone knows how to or point me in the right direction.

So I have a XT1060 (VZW DevEd) Rooted running Stock 4.4.2

My question is. Is there any way to activate Wifi tether without a custom kernal or rom?

Tried Wifi Tether 3.4 Experimental APK (some people have claimed around the net that it works) but nothing happens or atleast it seems like nothing happens since my laptop cannot find the wifi. (maybe someone here knows how?)
Even tried turning on Tether Freedom through XYZ Toolbox (supposed to remove tether restrictions) and starting Wifi Tether, same thing.

Dont want to use native app with XYZ, when i tried it My Verizon Mobile asked for SU access and i denied it, kinds weird, dont want that to pop up again.

Also have read that X Tether Module works, but it replaces entitlements, will they go back to normal when i stop the module or does it change it for good? And will Verizon ask for SU access?

also dont mind spending a dollar or 2 if one works from the Play store.

Thanks in advance. Hopefully this will help others with this question as well.

The my Verizon app does ask for root just deny it access..this happened with the last update to the app

X tether module will need xposed framework and as far as I know it only makes the hooks when called for

Thank you. You are correct.

Went back to XYZ, Turned on Tether Freedom, Retried turning on Wifi Tether thru native and worked like a charm. No permission request to access SU from Verizon anymore. So just need to deny it the first time.

To tether on my rooted VZW Dev X I do the following...

Use the wifi_tether_v3_4-experimental1.apk from https://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/
change device profile to galaxy nexus (cdma/lte)
check box: wifi-driver reload
check box: enabled routing fix

If you have troubles, its also suggested to...
check box: wifi-driver reload 2

Doing this, I can set the SSID and WPA key. And it doesn't touch any system files or anything, so it is one less thing to get in the way of taking future OTA updates.


Or Try this way -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...w-4-4-t2536166

Or some use the Xposed module.
