Default [Q] Is USB Tethering working with 4.4.2 for anyone?


I am using this rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2537932

WIFI tethering works, flawlessly. But can't get USB Tethering to work.

I have installed the drivers, and when I connect my phone Device manager doesn't show up any unknown devices.

But as soon as I turn on USB Tethering I get a Nexus 4 with exclamation mark.

Thumbs up Damn it

Well, i have the same damned issue even on stock rom..no one knows how to fix it..prolly the only salvation is to downgrade from 4.4.2 to either 4.4 or earlier version..

All forms of Tethering work for me (on T-Mobile in the US), but with a rather large catch: only sites that use SSL (HTTPS). If I want to take a look at non-secure sites, like XDA, I have to connect to my home VPN. No VPN, no HTTP, only HTTPS. It's very odd, but the the behavior makes me think T-Mobile is probably blocking it. It will send the HTTP request out, resolve the host, but then stall on "waiting for [name of site]." I don't get a redirect page or anything, just nothing non-secure when I'm not on the VPN. I'm on T-Mobile's $30/month 100 minutes, unlimited text and data plan.


There's also a chance it might be related to the Android 4.4.2 tethering bug, as when I'm connected to the VPN, it doesn't rely on Android to process HTTP requests.
