For those that want to tether but don't want to pay your carrier for it...

Root is required.

1) Download your favorite SQL editor. I use SQLite Editor.

2) Open and grant root access.

3) Scroll down and find Settings Storage

4) Choose settings.db (duh)

5) Go down to line 65 and change the value for entitlement check from 1 to 0.

6) Reboot.

7) Profit.

Historically this has stuck through updates as the databases don't change when you update.

Thank you jcase for root!

It does persist through reboot. The change actually won't work until after reboot.

Is there a tether app your using or stock tethering? I can't get any wifi tether to work with root.

Use the native tether (via Settings) once you've updated the DB.
