For those of you with AT&T plans that don't include Tethering, I came across a simple way to bypass this with root and allow you to run the built in tethering instead of having to use FoxFi.

What you'll need:
  • Xposed Framework
  • X Tether Module (Xposed Module)
  • Root (towelroot method)
  • Titanium Backup
  • Root Explorer/ES File Explorer

Step 1:
Install Xposed Framework.
Once installed, launch Xposed Installer, go to Downloads and search for X Tether
Install X Tether, Activate the Module, and reboot.

Step 2:
Open Titanium Backup and find TetheringProvision 4.06.72
Press the App and select 'Freeze !'

Step 3:
Open Root Explorer and navigate to:
Now rename TetheringProvision.apk and TetheringProvision.odex
to TetheringProvision.apk.bak and TetheringProvision.odex.bak

Step 4:
Reboot, Set up Hotspot and Enjoy!

Unzip the files and transfer them to your phone. Use a root file explorer app to place them in the /system/app directory. Change the permissions to both files to rw-r-r. The permissions should look something like this under permissions or properties, I use ES file explorer.

Then reboot the phone.
