This is the one i use for Chrome - User-Agent Switcher for Chrome

–user-agent=”Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_3; en-us) AppleWebKit/533.16 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0 Safari/533.16”
That or use a VPN and you won't have issues with tethering upsell redirect.

by the way, you can use native tethering through Jovy Mod instead of paying apps. Work flawlessly for me!

the tricky parts are where u have to decompile and recompile. Be careful, if you don't recompile framework right, when put back on your phone, it could freeze up. Happen to me twice till I figured out.

What vpn do you recommend?
I tried hot spot shield on my tablet before, but as soon as I enable it data don't flow anymore over the hotspot.
Haven't tried on the phone though.

I use Private Internet Access. Pretty cheap too, tons of servers to choose from, no logging at all, low monthly or yearly cost. App for your desktop and mobile. I'd really recommend it.

Are you enabling the VPN on the phone you're using to tether, or on the PC you're using to browse?
