Enable native tethering on Galaxy Note 3 AT&T (SM-N900A) running Android 5.0
This is personally Tested on my Galaxy Note 3 running rooted OC1 5.0 Rom
and Galaxy S4 AT&T SGH-I337 running rooted 5.0 rom
Backup your existing TetheringProvision.apk (I just renamed my old one TetheringProvision.apk1)
place modded apk in system/app/TetheringProvision/
Make sure permissions are set as seen in screenshot
delete TetheringProvision/ARM folder before rebooting
Reboot device
????????????
Profit!
As always this is at your own risk

AT&T Note 3 here and i can say it works and is much better than the last workaround i tried. Basically after using the tether I had to restart the phone to reenable wifi.

Edit: Spoke too soon. When I turn off the hotspot wifi comes back on and connects. However, the occasional web page will refuse to load. Will only load 3/4 of the way unless I leave it for like 2 minutes. Pages with embedded video don't load within that time period at all. But youtube embeds work as does the app. Restarting the phone fixes everything.

At least it is progress in my case! Using an app before would cause wifi to show as toggeled on, but refused to connect or turn off.

Galaxy Note 3 (9000A) on CricKet network running 4.4.2. Towelrooted months ago and TouchWiz recently began crashing, so I finally did a factory reset. Lost ability to hotspot tether using FoxFi/PdaNet. Did the reset change some settings? If so, how do I change them back? Perhaps someone more experienced could walk me through the apk change or point me to a "____ for Idiots" type tutorial.

If you are rooted, use Wanam Xposed & MotoTether. I use this method on Cricket. Then just use the native tether on phone.

Great thanks cgm8.
I spent almost 2 hrs based on OPs steps but it kept saying "TetheringProvision.apk failed" or something after each reboot and then I almost gave up.
Luckily I saw your post that we should delete the ARM folder so I thought of giving it a last try...just in case you know.
And BOOM... after deleting the ARM folder and rebooting again, no error and then when I went to settings to enable HotSpot, it enabled flawless...lol

OP, can you pls add this simple step i.e. delete TetheringProvision/ARM folder before rebooting so everyone gets 100% success in this...???
Anyway, thanks a lot OP for this or else nothing else matters...
