You may have noticed that the Nexus 7 3G does not have the tethering options enabled by default.
I couldn't live with that (that was partially the point why I got the 3G version), so have patched the framework to enable those options. Partial credits go to PaulOBrien@MoDaCo who has fixed the apktool for Android 4.2 .
To get it to work just flash the ZIP below. It will only work on the newest JOP40C release, and obviously only if you have a 3G device. Please do not try it on the WiFi-only Nexus 7 .
Please note that it doesn't do a backup of the original framework-res.apk, so you can either make one yourself, or you can reflash the factory system image if you want to go back to stock later.
Yes and no. You can enable the FUNCTION of voice calling in the framework (it's in values/bools.xml). All this does is allow the dialer to come up. However, so far, no one has been able to actually get voice calls to work through it.

Is there a reason why customized versions of framework.apk are half the size of the original?
