I rooted yesterday and have the basics, Xposed framework and wanam, as well as X Tether, but so far no combination has gotten me to the holy grail. With wanam I was able to remove the vzw dialog, the Wi-Fi network wasn't connectable
And turned off with error.
I also went the sqlite editor route but received "cannot open database" when accessing the settings storage to add hotspot as a quick icon..
Has anyone come up with a solution for activating the native Wi-Fi hotspot, without getting the banner and/or an error?
