Default [MOD][4/14/2014] - Unlocked Tether - Remove Keyboard indicator! - Updated

Removes tether check. Verizon, IMHO, has no right to restrict how you use data. And to charge more for how you use your data is ridiculous.

To me that is like the water company telling me I have to pay more if I want to take a shower vs taking a bath. Its water. This is data. Get over it Verizon.


Updated: 4/14/2014: Fixed some apps have random error code 106 and The Verge App not working.

Big thanks to bajasur for his help!


This is for MJE based ROMS Only!

  • Same tricked used on every Samsung device ever made...
  • Original hack posted HERE and ported to Note 3 by me (and all the other devs in there ROMS).
  • Flash in recovery. Should work fine with Safestrap or unlocked devices...
  • Works on odex or de-odex. Most custom ROMS have this so I dont recommend using it over any custom ROM.
  • Designed more so for stock or stock rooted ROMS / Devices.


Two for one special: Also removes the keyboard indicator from the status bar!

How to make this mod...

Decompile framework-res

Open /res/values/arrays.xml

Find this:
Code:
<string-array name="config_mobile_hotspot_provision_app">
        <item>com.sec.tetheringprovision</item>
        <item>com.sec.tetheringprovision.TetheringProvisionActivity</item>
    </string-array>
Change it to this:
Code:
<array name="config_mobile_hotspot_provision_app" />
That unlocks tether by telling framework to not look for a check.

Next to get rid of that hideous keyboard indicator (That I admittedly once liked)..

Edit bools.xml and look for ime_notification and turn it from true to false.

Now recompile and pat yourself on the back!

Yes it is. If these changes work out well I will think about uploading my contribution.
