No. PA tether is already hacked and won't show tether usage. This thread is for stock roms

Yes it counts. It still uses the built in tether app.

save and turn on tethering without any limits.... Just after reboot you need to set 1 to 0 again to make it work...
I saw it somewhere around and that worked for me!

(Didn't have to change or create new APN.

(This is possible solution for NON-T-mobile users of D801 model, because I'm one..)
This method works on the Rogers D803. Just used it last week to stream Netflix HD movies to my laptop (hotel wifi was only 1 Mbps and Netflix SD looks horrible on a 720p laptop screen 12" from your face). Gotta love a 6 GB data plan on the last day of the monthly time period.

Thanks for the info!!

Oh, and this was on Mahdi ROM (June 03 version), not stock LG ROM.

For PA do I have to do anything to tether without going over my limit?
