first off i would like to say this is not my work . i am just re-posting it to share with the xda community. all credits and thanks should be directed towards aamikam from themikmik.com

i can confirm this does work for joelz rom Charmeleon. i am running it and my hotspot is functional.i cleared cache and dalvik in recovery. rebooted still didnt work. so i used root explorer went to data/dalvik cache. select all deleted all items in that folder and rebooted worked after that. typing on my laptop with it now.

roms confirmed working on.
miks rom
joelz Charmeleon
Fresh 5.1
viper Rom 1.2.1

below quoted form aamikam from here
This is one of the most simple and quick hack u ever need to do... i tested it with and without a full wipe... it never failed.

open your build.prop and add anywhere in it the following line:

Code:

ro.tether.denied=false

then reboot and u should be good to tether.

p.s.
i tested it on a fully rooted rom with unsecured boot... so feel free to post feedback and let me know how it works out.

p.s.2
this is something i noticed in my ics mikvigrin rom, only there it didnt work, but here it does.

p.s.3
i think someone used this in the evo4g in the past... but not 100% sure if its true or not and not sure who.

have fun.

I don't have another device to test fully, but after editing the buildprop and clearing caches, I launched the hotspot app. No code 67. Running Fresh 5.1.

What exactly did you do? I added to first line in build.prop, wiped x 2 in twrp, but error 67 keeps popping up..don't have another device rite this minute to check with.

i had that issue as well at first. use root explorer or es file explorer with root rights. go to data >dalvik-cache wipe everything in that folder ...reboot. should work.

Added it to build.prop save and exit..reboot into recovery wipe dalvik and reboot..error 67 might appear a couple times then go away(make sure your spelling is correct in build.prop)made that mistake once or twice..LOL

Maybe I am just tired and missing something... What does this do that we can't do with wireless tether?

Nevermind... USB/BT. Got it! One if those days...
