You will not be able to do this on stock phones. If you are on Kit Kat 19.6.3 and are stock, there is currently no way to root it.


1. Download Root Explorer by Jrummy in the Play store.

2. Download the tether zip attached to this post.

3. Go into Root Explorer and find System folder, find priv-app, inside priv-app long press VZWEntitlementServices.apk and VZWEntitlementServices.odex rename to VZWEntitlementServices.apk.bak and VZWEntitlementServices.odex.bak and back out to first folder.

4. Go to sdcard folder, download and find tether.zip that you downloaded from step 2. Extract the build.prop, copy it and back out to the home folder. enter the system folder. Delete the build.prop that is there, then paste the one you extracted from the zip.

5. Long press on the file and hit permissions in the menu. change permissions Owner: Read/Write, Group:Read, Others: Read (should show rw-r--r--)

6. Exit out of root explorer

7. Reboot

8. Check the tether it should work.

Not really. This is just for those that have yet to apply the 19.5.3 Tether. Its also a slightly more simple method.

Likely you borked something with the build prop. Did you make a back up before you tried this?
