I know this is common knowledge to most, but I thought I would post it here for the Verizon S5 users!!

This guide requires following things:
• APKtool
• Notepad++ (or AcroEdit, etc.)

To Enable Native Hotspot


1. Decompile Framework
2. Edit values/Arrays.xml

Find:
PHP Code:
<string-array name="config_mobile_hotspot_provision_app">
        <
item>com.samsung.spg</item>
        <
item>com.samsung.spg.NewSPGActivity</item>
</
string-array> 
And Change to:
PHP Code:
 <array name="config_mobile_hotspot_provision_app" /> 
Should look like this when done:

PHP Code:
</string-array>
    <array 
name="config_tether_dhcp_range" />
    <array 
name="config_mobile_hotspot_provision_app" />
    <
integer-array name="config_tether_upstream_types">
        <
item>0</item>
        <
item>1</item>
        <
item>4</item>
        <
item>5</item>
        <
item>7</item
Compile and you can now enjoy Native Hotspot with no Verizon Subscripton


This is not my code I am merely sharing with Verizon S5 users

Enjoy!

This is good but if you install xposed installer you can get the X tether mod and it enables the stock tethering without moving a muscle

That's what I did and it was super simple.
