Well..

Performance wise it isn't any different than the out-of-the-box method.. It IS the out-of-the-box method minus the provisioning app that the out-of-the-box method calls to see if you are 'eligible' before it activates tethering.

The gains:

The out-of-the-box method had no bluetooth tethering.. This does.

The install script deletes 'ProvisionManager.apk' and 'ProvisionManager.odex' since they aren't called any longer so.. You gain device space? Though it may be a moot point given the device capacity.

For me.. This is what mattered: This method isn't a hack. Zero chance of breaking something else on the device. Its a step toward making android perform as it was intended before that carriers perform their surgeries on it. I know this one may just be a personal preference but it really REALLY irritates me that American carriers spend time and effort to block features of the device that the device would have innately done before they modified it.

I wont get into a debate of semantics but if I shell out non-contract prices on a device and buy it outright (as I did in this case) I can't for the life of me figure out how the carrier has the right to tell me what features the device can have. They have every right to dictate service plan features but not device features.

Enough rambling. Back to development discussions. (If you wanna reply to my small rant, please, use PM)

No. I'll make a mod that does and update the OP with a second link as soon as I finish it.. Stay tuned.

UPDATE:
I decompiled the framework-res.apk from this rom. It seems to have the needed edits for tethering to be unlimited. Is tethering missing from that rom? I'm headed out for drinks but I'll flash the complete rom later tonight or tomorrow and test it.
If you found this useful please say thanks!

The original idea came from Electron's thread post here and seeing as how I just got my new Note II I figured I'd try it out.. Eureka.. It works.

Again as you saw the idea was his.. Just a much cleaner mod that my modded Provision that fooled the simcard.

I've tested it on my device but as usual take the standard precautions... Back up before applying.

My phone is pure stock excluding this mod but I'm sure that'll be changing and I'll keep this up to date as I can.

Good luck and feedback is welcomed.

4Shared link - Flashable zipfile.. I use TWRP but should be fine in CWM.
Nice job! Thanks for sharing!

Doubtful.

If you want to PM me an email address you can send me your framework-res and I'll attempt to apply the patch.

Edited OP to reflect.

There has been much discussion about whether or not they can 'see' tethering. In short if they choose to put the time and effort into it by doing packet analyzation or going back and and looking and your browsing then technically, yes it can always be detected. Just be mindful and don't go crazy and you should be fine. The last 3 devices I've had over 4 years were all modded to re-enable tethering and I've been fine but that's my story. Yours might differ. The main thing I'd suggest is to not go crazy and use 20 gigs of mobile data or something obvious.

I average 2-3 gigs a month regular phone usage so getting closer to the throttle ceiling of 5 shouldn't matter that much.

I flashed with the I317_N7105ZHALJ4 and it activated the teathering, WIFI, BT and USB work great as does Multi-window

However, I am not sure what port this teathering uses. In some platforms, the teathering uses a different port number than other general data that apps use. The carriers can then easily scan for data using this port and send you the nasty SMS or just start charging you their tethering fees. But if the MOD uses the right port - the carriers would have no idea.

Anyone know which port I317_N7105ZHALJ4 ROM uses?

This should work with the completely stock cleanrom 1.1.1 right?
