Has anyone figured out how to bypass tethering using the stock tmobile hotspot app instead of the wifi tether router? I followed other instructions to editing the tether_dun_required to 0 but it doesn't stick. Any clues anyone?

DONATE TO ME
I'm fairly sure even doing everything with the APN removal of pcweb and using WiFi Tether Router, they can see usage still because of the User-Agent in HTTP headers. This means the other sure ways would be masking all User-Agents through a proxy (can even host your own in your local network to reduce speed loss) or through a VPN (will result in a loss of speed and a jump in ping (response).

Unless someone has made a breakthrough?

There's a hidden apn called Tmobile Tethering that tmobile is using. You can disable it or delete it you should be fine.

I haven't had issue using WiFi Tether Router, even worked while internationally roaming.

Haven't figured out how to delete, but in another thread on tethering I have detailed instructions on how to disable it.

Edit**** Copy and pasted the instruc r ions below as well.

wrote this one my phone so if there any misspelling or things I missed I am sorry. If someone wants to rewrite it so it's easier, or an easier method to achieve the same thing go ahead.

As I mentioned in previous post you will need to turn of T-Mobile Tethering Apn. You will need root to use this app. Download APNS Backup from the playstore.

1.) After installation turn of WiFi before you run the app.
2.) Now create a backup of your apn.
3.) Exit the app and goto to settings and edit the apn you had created before to tether with in Android 4.3, under Apn Type add dun. Just save and exit.
4.) Open the backup apn file you just created with APNS Backup. I used Sqlite Editor. My back up was located in a hidden folder on the sdcard called .APNsBU.
5.) When the file open choose carrier as the table to open. Now look for T-Mobile Tethering, mine was located all the way at the end. Now select and edit this field. Look for the field carrier enabled and change that value from 1 to 0. Save and exit the db.
6.) Open up APNS Backup and choose restore. Pick the db file which you just edited. When done let the app reboot your phone.
7.) Use similar method to tether the way you did pre Kitkat upgrade.

For some reason after I followed a method to tether successfully using the native tethering app, it will have issues transmitting data. Sometimes it will be fast and work, and other times it will be really slow or not connect at all. Hopefully a solution arises.

Works fine for me, maybe it depends on your stock rom
