That includes PDAnet+ and FoxFi Full Version - contrary to what you say these do NOT work and I get that T-Mo hotspot page. Also, based on the fact you're giving an advice to install Safari for Windows you seem to be making incorrect assumptions about tethered devices and data usage. Not everyone tethers to Windows PC. For example in my case I mostly tether to my android WiFI tablet. Additionally, using web browsing is only 1 of many uses for data connection and for me it most certainly would not satisfy tethering needs if I got tethering to work just on a specific browser. I use Remote Desktop a lot, telnet/ssh protocols, Surveillance Cam feed, apps that download/upload stuff without ever using http/https protocols...

You quoted me and didn't pay attention to what I wrote. I said PDAnet works for MOST devices. I had to tinker with it for hours when the Droid DNA came out finding the right settings. They've since eliminated most of these, but I never guaranteed it would work.
Second, you say you're on a custom ROM but failed to mention if you're having the same issue on any other ROM. You might not like the next ROM as much as your current but, again, you have to go with what works.
Lastly, I never tried to imply my suggestions work for all scenarios of tethering. The OP was having problems with browsing and that's what I replied about. Instead of trying to point the finger at me for your tethering not working the way you want it to work, I suggest YOU get flexible and start flashing ROMs and experimenting. It's the only way you're going to find the answer for YOUR device.

I'm trying to tether my laptop with Chrome browser. Certain websites bypass tether such as google search, but as soon as I hit the link, I am introduced to the T-mobile upsell page.

I've tried every method I've read up on to enable tethering but I always seem to hit the Tmobile upsell page within a few minutes of tether via USB or WiFi. It's almost like tmobile catches on and knows somehow.

Here's what I've tried with NO LUCK:
- Changing APN to fast.t-mobile.com or internet2.voicestream.com
- APN Type: default, supl, mms, hipri, dun, fota
- I've even used an SQL editor to change dun and set value to 0.
- WiFi Tether Router does not work (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...errouter&hl=en)
- Switching user agent does not work. Tried all.
- Xposed with X-tether (it was worth a try, but no luck)



If anyone has a hack to enable tethering, please let me know. I read others have no issues, but I can't seem to make it work with the OnePlus One. Id greatly appreciate it!

This is for Note 3, not your phone, but I was having the exact same issues and this FINALLY fixed it for me: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1746

Maybe ask effortless what he did, or look inside the zip to figure out yourself? Good luck!

I responded last night via Tapatalk so I didn't see your sig. I also had problems with the tethering hack on the Hyperdrive ROM. I don't think sbreen has it implemented properly. I'm on SlimROM and will03 has it working flawlessly. I'm glad you tried new things to get it working. Check out will's ROM, it's the smoothest on our device.

Last time I had updated to Lollipop (honestly can't recall which ROM) I lost my unlimited tethering via USB. I hadn't noticed for months until I lost internet at my house and my 3gbs were used up in an evening's worth of Netflix. I remembered USB tethering allowing me past my 3gb allowance on KitKat so I reverted back.

First, I went into my settings.db with a sql editor and added the dun_tethering_required line with a value of 0. That gave my Netflix back for an evening. The next night all streaming, be it Netflix or YouTube were blocked. Then I tried using a program like fiddler on my laptop to alter the user agent. This time I was able to get through to netflix's website, but not stream, due to my user agent selected. Either it thinks my browser's too outdated, suggests a Netflix app, or is simply blocked.

I know there is a way to bypass this without a VPN as a friend also has TMo and his G3 running resurrection remix has something built in that bypasses the block. Just noticed RR is available for our phones so I may try it out in hopes it's the same and will work for us. Given that the G3 is a registered T-Mobile handset, I don't see why it wouldn't work for us unless these issues are far trickier than I assume.
