All,

After attempting to find a solution to the WifiTether_TrevE_Mod not working after 4.3 ( 2.10.605.1 ). I have found an alternate solution to use the native HOTSPOT application and it does not prompt to subscribe to it for those of us who have unlimited data.

I cannot take full credit for finding the fix for this I had to look in the following for the XML edits: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2467651&page=7

The update script is by andybones, and i modified it, and the xml.

There are 3 flashables i did put together based on this. DeODEX/ODEX versions and Stock. The first two just re-add the WifiRouter_JB43.apk and odexed file respectively depending on which you use, and also removes TetheringGuard.apk.
The Stock, simply places the origional xml file back and puts the TetheringGuard.apk back as well. That one will work for odex and deodex.

THESE ARE ONLY FOR STOCK ROMS. I CANNOT CONFIRM THESE WILL WORK ON CUSTOM ROMS.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT VERSION, OR YOU WILL GET FORCE CLOSE ON THE DIALER! THE FILES IN THIS OP ARE FOR 4.3 ( 2.10.605.1 ) ONLY RIGHT BELOW THIS THERE IS A LINK TO 4.4.2

Also, I cannot get the hotspot widget to work correctly. IT WILL turn it off, but not on.

Enjoy

Works great, thx! While its a bummer that the widget doesn't work properly at least the EQS tile toggles it on and off with no problem. Thx again!

Awesome, thanks! Works perfectly. I actually didn't flash the zip, instead made the changes manually. The WifiRouter_JB43.apk was already on my phone, verified to be identical. So just had to rename ThetheringGuard.apk (and odex) and manually made the XML edits. As you mentioned, the Hotspot widget doesn't work, but it's easy enough to turn it on from quick settings.

Many thanks.

You don't HAVE to rename tether guard, I tested it with and without.

IF only the widget works, that would be great, but not too much inconvenience with quick settings, i am satisfied.

This is exactly what I was looking for. I was thinking about flashing stock rooted but didn't want to give up native hotspot.

Angry No charge on bill
I just got my bill today as the 19th was the last day of my billing cycle, and i used the hotspot mod that day.

I DO NOT HAVE CHARGES on my bill for this just so everyone knows or is worried it might generate a charge.
