Hi Guys, I am tethering using USB3 Mode, and PDAnet+

Iam rooted (thx to chainfire) and running stock rom. Does anyone know how to bypass this feature? I noticed it also charges faster when used with USB3 on a PC, which helps when tethering with torrents on T-mo, and i have slightly lower latency.

What happens is a popup appears, forcing the phone back into USB2 mode after 10 minutes. Very annoying.

Any Ideas? Thanks guys.

If your laptop has only USB 2.0 ports, it will run at that speed. There's a saying when it comes to electronics: "Your device will only be as fast as your slowest component." So the USB 3.0 wire will slow it's speed to the 2.0 if all you have is 2.0 ports.
