Does anyone know how to remove the stock Tmobile Mobile hot spot app? My Note 3 is fully rooted. I looked through many threads and no luck...there is no apk for it under system/aps

Download Titanium Back Up from the Play Store and search for it under "batch freeze". Just make sure you have just the hotspot checked or it will literally freeze all the apps in your ROM..

I grabbed the latest copy of TB and searched for hot spot. I am still unable to find it. Can you please give me more detailed steps on what to look for?

Well, I don't know the name of the actual app. Just look for the icon when you're going through the freeze list

The icon is not there. This was the whole point behind opening this thread....

I have done tons of Google searching on this matter and nothing. Hopefully someone knowledgeable will come along and provide some instructions...

Look for apps named tether or tethering in /system/app and in the /priv-app folder.....
Why do you need to delete this?

I looked through and only see tetherinkprovision.apk under system/app. This is not the right apk as mobile hotspot still remains. I am debloating my phone from all Tmobile crap...
