Haven't seen anything related yet, so I found a way to get stock/native WiFi tethering working on the GNII, on the stock rom, without the use of any market apps. Based off other methods I saw for doing the same thing on the GSIII by modifying /system/framework/framework-res.apk to not call the entitlement check app when you fire up wifi tethering.

Directions:

  1. Be on stock ROM build JRO03C.I605VRALJB .. if you are not, it will likely hose your phone
  2. Be rooted..
  3. Backup /system/app/SPG.apk .. then delete it
  4. Backup [B]/system/framework/framework-res.apk[B] DO NOT DELETE IT!!
  5. Download modified framework-res.apk I have created, and copy to internal storage ( /sdcard )
  6. Run these commands with ADB:
    Code:
    adb shell
    shell@android:/ $ su
    shell@android:/ # mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtdblock4 /system
    shell@android:/ # dd if=/sdcard/framework-res.apk of=/system/framework/framework-res.apk
  7. Phone will freeze/lockup/hangup because you just overwrote a open file.. so reboot it or pull battery to reset
  8. Profit

I don't do this stuff everyday, so I take no responsibility if you jack your phone up, but I did this on mine, and works great.. and best part is you can stay stock without messing with crappy WiFi tether apps out there. Also worth noting is any OTA's that come down wire and that are blindly applied will ruin your day as well, so before you apply any OTA, reverse the above directions to put the stock framework-res.apk file back so that everything works.

CREDITS:

My phone goes to loop boot............I have to recover the framework-res.apk.

I think data drops sue to VZW throttling the phone. I remember someone made a hack for the rezound to remove the throttling on the 4g, I think we need that here.

Using the Treve wifi tether. seems to be working awesome.

Have been tearing my hair out for the past week, looking for solutions and wondering why nobody was talking about the hotspot 4g drop issue.

Turns out I was NOT in the Verizon specific galaxy note 2 forum, stupid me.

Life is happy again. I didn't try the framework-res solution though.

Device Profile: Generic ICS/JB (wlan0)
Setup Method: Netd-NDC (master)
Send Netd Max Client Cmd: Check
Wifi-driver reload: Check
Wifi-driver reload 2: Check
Keep Alive - Connection Checking: Check
Routing fix: Check.

i would start a seperate thread in the theme and app section with this info.

Fantastic. I'm on the road and don't feel like doing anything dramatic. This worked for me like a charm.

Yeah it works on all the roms. Use the above settings minus wifi reload 1, and keep alive. Everything else is correct.
