Hello

I have an unlocked rooted t-mobile, currently I am using metro-pcs

I am using Wifi Tether app for tethering, the problem whenever I am on 4g, the app 100% working, but whenever my phone tune to LTE, the tethering will stop working (no data activity- Download & upload)

Anyone who fixed this problem before?

Thanks in advance

Are you stock? You're gonna need to use a root explorer and change the tethering apn. By default it's set only to use the 4g network. Or flash a custom ROM.

Its easiest to do it on a computer.

go to /csc/customer.xml

you should see something that looks like this in that file (easiest to copy it to sd card then to computer to edit)

Code:
<Profile>
        <NetworkName>T-Mobile</NetworkName>
        <Editable>no</Editable>
        <EnableStatus>enable</EnableStatus>
        <ProfileName>T-Mobile Tethering</ProfileName>
        <Auth>none</Auth>
        <MTUSize>1440</MTUSize>
        <Bearer>ps</Bearer>
        <Protocol>http</Protocol>
        <Proxy>
          <EnableFlag>off</EnableFlag>
        </Proxy>
        <PSparam>
          <APN>fast.t-mobile.com</APN>
        </PSparam>
      </Profile>
Where it says "<APN>" change it to what you see that i have. It probably says "epc.tmobile.com" it should say what i have posted.

Yes, I do

From the PC, I use User Agent Switcher extension for Chrome, then select GoogleBot profile, this will bypass the blocking

I did exactly what did you say, I edited the file on PC, then copied back under /csc/ and it ask if you want to replace the file, but i get the following message and the task is not completed


Copy Task Failed
/system/csc/customer.xml: open failed: EROFS (read only file system)


UPDATE:

After turning Root explorer on

I am getting a permission denied error

Thank you
