Freeze the system app called "tethering provisions". Use an app manager like titanium backup pro, or another one off your choice.

You should only get the error once. Then open settings and type in new hotspot ssid and password.

If error persists after setting up hotspot info, find a widget that can enable hotspot. I use "power toggles".

Download portable mobile hotspot from the Playstore, has worked flawlessly over the last month, and no *timeouts.

Once downloaded, tap the icon. a message will appear "please wait while verifying", press ur Home button while the message is there and u will be good to go, (and att will not know ur tethering).

Nope. Still getting the settings has stopped message. I don't get the message please wait while verifying. I've rebooted. Tried freezing both tethering items with tibu. Not sure why not working for me. I'm on Stock Rooted.
