Wink [Q] T-Mobile Note 3 Hotspot and Wifi Rooted Phone Mod or Solution

I have a rooted SM-N900T Note 3 on T-Mobile (using KingoApp and despite worries online regarding privacy issues installed and works fine and not worried). With my Note 2 I rooted and downloaded WifFi Tether app and got my hotspot working fine. Well...not so easy with Note 3. Can anyone tell me how we can get the hotspot free working on the T-Mobile version of the Note 3? Maybe a Mod or something ,anything, would be appreciated. And I used about 60 gigs before and never was flagged by T-Mobile or "throttled", but can anyone tell me if I should be concerned and something I can do to mask that usage? I am way more concerned with just getting it working as my plan limits me to 2.5 gigs without making a complete change on my plan and everyone on it.

This is my first post and I love XDA!

Try this mod, it was formally known as the TREV_E wifi teathering mod. I had it working (but then changed roms and just haven't set it up again) and it seems like is doesn't run up your data as fast as the T MO hot spot. I had to change some settings on the app but I can re-install it and walk ya guys through it if it doesn't work out of the box for you.

Doesn't work out the box if you can inform us of your settings that would be great

Yes the settings would be great. Also, can anyone tell me if I should be concerned and something I can do to mask that usage, like a VPN? Why would you need a VPN? Thanks for any help. Would be awesome to find a solution for free hotspot on the T-Mobile note 3.

Ok here are the settings that are working for me

Change device profile to s4

Check send netd max client cmd box

Check No Tethering interface cmd box

Check wifi driver reload box

Check keep alive connection check

And that's it, you should see a wireless connection called Android Tether 2 in wireless connections.

I dowloaded and opened with win zip on my phone. I don't even have the following options:
*Check send netd max client cmd box

*Check No Tethering interface cmd box

*Check wifi driver reload box

I did check keep alive connection check though.

So did it worked for you just checking the keep alive option? If not download it on your computer then move the apk to your phone external sd card via phone hooked up to your computer.

Default Still not working

I've tried the trev_e mod with the settings listed and it doesn't show up as an available network. Any new techniques or updates? I'm desperate. I need more that 2.5GB.
