you can do this much cleaner by just running a sqlite command to set all the values instead of pushing a different db in.

for rom devs, you can change this in the framework where the apn is stored, that way it gets put into the database this way.

True but this ones free while sqlite isn't. I've already enabled mine but thread like this is always appreciated.

Not familiar with AT&T but I'm curious about this. Does AT&T offer a specific plan for data with dethering and another one without the ability to do so? Or is this a "fix" for the tethering feature on the stock ROMs or custom ROMs? Or a bit of both?

One reason I ask is because WiFi Hotspot isn't working on the current ROM I'm on.

Thanks in advance for the info guys.

At&T charges 50 bucks a month for the data plan that includes tethering.

Hey guys I tried doing it via sqlite and via this method, both gives me FC when android boots up. It says "unfortunately, the process com.android.phone has stopped". I cant get into my phone and it just bootloops. Any ideas?

:O

That's ridiculous! Data is data I don't get it. I know Rogers has a limitation where anything 500MB or lower doesn't support tethering, but with the 1GB plan and up you're good and 1GB is $30/mo by default. I'm on a 6GB promo plan for the same $30 price. I'm glad this mod is out for you guys!!

what? sqlite is built into android, how do think it uses that sqlite file? lol

you can run an adb shell command to do the same thing.

just throwing up other options for the op to check out..

I tried searching the various one x forums for another way to do this. What ADB commands are necessary to change the file. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Good point! That would be another way to do it, I wouldn't say one method is 'cleaner' then the other though.

Rom developers will probably start having this fix preloaded in their roms but this should work for the ones that don't have it yet!

Not sure what changes you applied in sqlite but I would suggest just reflashing a new rom to fix your dialer then running this tool to get the tether fix.

I tried searching the various one x forums for another way to do this. What ADB commands are necessary to change the file. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

in adb you would type something like:

adb shell sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases/telephony.db "update carriers set apn = 'pta' where _id = 12;"

I updated the OP with a new download that includes adb!


Has anyone tested this on the the Cleanrom 2.1? Is it just the telephone db that this changes?

I didn't test with that rom but it should work. Yes, it just modifies the telephony db.
