Has anyone unlocked the hotspot to get away from the data provisioning?

The method I am talking about is the tether dun required = 0 method and using magisk.

1. Installed MagiskHide Props Config via Magisk
2. Opened Termux (my terminal app)
3. Typed:
  1. SU
  2. Props
  3. 4
  4. N (for new)
  5. net.tethering.noprovisioning
  6. true
  7. y (for yes)
  8. y (for yes to reboot)
5. Restart the phone.
6. Go to settings> network and internet> mobile network > APN > T-Mobile US LTE > APN type > Add: ,DUN (in caps) --- I actually had to create a whole new APN
7. Save APN (top right screen, 3 dots)
8. Go to settings > Dev options> turn off tethering hardware acceleration
(super important step)
9. Toggle airplane mode on/off
10. Reboot

How did you root your TMobile phone? Did you get them to unlock it or was it already unlocked?

Hmm, getting stuck on this.

1. Termux didn't ask for superuser out of the box, and SU command failed.
I tried "pkg install tsu" and that seemed to work.

2. seemed to work
3. worked
4. I don't see an N option. Typing N gives me "invalid input, select from options above"


nevermind, figured it out.
Termux v6.1.2, item 3. above is selection 5, not 4. so :
2. Props
3. 5
4. N

Confirmed working on AT&T.
Thanks.

I appreciate your help, but I can confirm I haven't been able to get this to work on a legacy Sprint plan. I am able to launch the hotspot and connect, but unable to transmit data. Though, to be fair, I've had the same issues since Android 11.
