What you need is a rooted i-537 with safstrap installed.
  1. make sure phone is rooted and you have safstrap installed.
  2. prevent you phone from updating itself as shown in the root guide in this forum.
  3. get a copy of the tethering provisioning apk from a custom rom. One that worked for me is attached to this thread.
  4. put the custom tetherprovisiong apk on an external sim card for access. boot into safestrap and make sure stock rom is selected.
  5. mount filesystem then open up safestaps file explorer and delete tetherprovisioning apd and tetherprovisioning odex from system/apps folder. Confirm that it is deleted.
  6. Now paste the custom tetherprovisioning.apk into the same system/apps folder. Reboot phone into stock, rooted rom and enjoy wifi tether.
  7. You should now be able to turn off and on with the normal method.

My phone: SGH-i537
Android version 4.3
Baseband I537UCUBML2
Rooted W/ Safestrap 3.71 installed


Thanks

Don't need to. I renamed all the tethering apks/odex files. Moved the apk in the thread I linked to to system/app using root browser. Changed the permissions to 644 and rebooted.

One thing I did notice was after I renamed all four tethering apks/index files, moved in the exploited apk and rebooted is I got the "upgrading screen" which one can only assume was my phone picking up on the new apk. Let me know if you have any questions,I banged my head on this for days before I found a working method.

Finaly tried your method and it worked like a charm. Never got the upgrade screen on boot up but it works fine. Thanks!
