I have rooted my vzw s5 and now I would like to find a tether option that takes advantage of being rooted.

I do not want to take this thread into whether I should or not, that is not my objective here.

I would like to find a hack, a work around to tethering.

I know about foxfi but do not want to pay for that either as it might not work if vzw changes something.

To be fair, in the other threads, I see a lot of 'WiFi tether' and I, and perhaps the OP want to know about bypassing the entitlement checks for Tether alone and not have to use FoxFi or Xposed as I cannot tether successfully with Xposed X Tether to my gaming PC.. I can use the Xposed method for WiFi just fine, but when I tether to my computer with it, it does nothing... at all.. Easy work around could be to buy a $20 USB WiFi adapter, but I don't want to do that either...

That is why I posted the link I did. It doesn't require Xposed or FoxFI and works just fine.
