Unhappy [Q] X Tether with rooted Verizon Moto G?

This method will allow you to bypass the validation without having to worry about moving around APKs, backing them up, setting permissions, etc. It also will no longer contact the actual servers used to verify if you have permission to use the tether.

This Xposed module works by replacing the list of entitlement apps available in the string array "config_mobile_hotspot_provision_app" with an empty set. This means that the entitlement app is not run at all and defaults to the native tether immediately.

Works with VZW, AT&T, Sprint, DE and non-DE devices running 4.4 or 4.4.2.


Installing
  1. Be rooted and have the Xposed framework installed
  2. Search for and download "X Tether" under the download section of the Xposed installer
  3. Activate the module in Xposed.
  4. Reboot.
  5. Tether away!
  6. SPRINT ONLY: Change the line ro.mot.tether_dun_required=1 in your build.prop file to ro.mot.tether_dun_required=0

This guy made this for the Moto X, however people on rooted Moto G's have this working on their devices.
I just recently purchased an unlock code and rooted my Verizon Moto G (Yes, you read that right, Verizon) and installed this tweak.
The Verizon Moto G doesn't even have the menu options for tethering, however it did make this app work. (It used to say that my plan doesn't have tethering and whatnot)

When enabled, my phone does broadcast and other devices can connect, but it seems as if DHCP isn't getting enabled because no device can get an IP lease.
So close, yet so far.

Anyone here knowledgable enough to get this working right?

Few things:

Can you link to who or how you got the unlock token (seen it before but it ended for the one source)

Supposedly the kernel has been modified to kill tethering at the core or something. Some tether apps that require root, can fix this by putting in what was removed.

Also, you can use pdanet+ to use bt to share your internet. It requires pda tablet on the other device and you probably can't share more than one device at a time but at least it doesn't require root or any major workarounds.
