Okay before anyone jumps me, I have searching for weeks on this. I tried various provision files and all have gave me the force close in settings. I tried that Trev E mod wifi tether app also. I can not get this thing to tether now. It worked fine when I was on ATT with a family plan, now I am using a NET10 plan. Phone is running 4.3. Is there no tethering hack anymore?

If you are on stock I have something that will work. I'll try and have something that can be CWM flashed tonight.

Try this

I'm running Stock MK6 4.3 on ATT. Worked fine for me.

All it is doing is replacing the TetheringProvision.apk under /system/app.

If you don't want to flash the file above, download apk from here.

You will then need to manually put it into /system/app and change permissions.

If I manually do it, I will still need adb to change permissions, right?

Yes. But the CWM flash works fine also. I know for a fact this apk works. Been using it for months.

Was just curious if someone had tried the flash. You can download, unzip it and go to the updater-script and check out what it does.

I can't get the permissions to change. I will try to flash it but I have twrp recovery right now. How would I go about flashing it with cwm? If I put the zip on my sd card and go into cwm recovery, just select install from zip file option?
