How to Get Free Wifi Tether on Rooted Android! [AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon]

howto-get-free-wifitether-rooted-android

America is probably one of the best places to live in my opinion (why I live here) but also worst place to get wifi tether working, especially on the four major carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.

Most countries around the world other than the U.S. have free WiFi Tether included as part of your data plan, meaning you do not have to worry about locked WiFi Tether hotspot.

Why?

Because the internet you use on WiFi Tether is basically the same internet you already paid for.  There’s currently no laws in the U.S. protecting consumers from such abuse of tethering charges by carriers (there should be one in the future) BUT there’s always a way around it to unlock your WiFi Tether on rooted Android smartphones and tablets.

Before we begin, you must have a rooted Android device.  This method should work on any native WiFi Tether that’s been locked on carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon.  Also may work for other carriers, it doesn’t hurt to try!

This app has been confirmed working on many Android phones including:

  • Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3
  • Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 2
  • Moto X
  • Droid Maxx
  • Droid Ultra


Step 1. Download Xposed Installer and Xposed XTether APK files.

Download:

Download Xposed Installer APK

Download Xposed XTether APK

Step 2. Install both APK files.  You may have to check “Unknown Sources” ON under Settings->Security.

Step 3. Once both apps installed, open Xposed Installer app then press “Framework”.

Step 4. Make sure you hit “Grant” or “Allow” when Superuser request window pops up!

      Thank you very much Max Lee!
      I had my phone rooted and then followed your instructions after much searching in other places. Open AT&T Galaxy S4 sgh-i537 kit kat 4.4.2 build number ending in NH3. Now i can use even the AT&T supplied hotspot app to turn my app on. After all they made the native notifications button unavailable in this phone.

      • Albi

        Hey
        i have the same identical phone as you
        how did you managed to root it?
        i’m having trouble with my mobile data.

  • binod

    while installing xposed xtether app it says proble, praising the package.
    what to plz help me

    • mauricio

      You have to have a good enough connection in order to not have download errors. I suggest going to a place with good wireless, connecting via wireless with your phone and then downloading the files. I suffered a lot because of bad parsings created by my 3G and 4G connections.

  • binod

    while installing xposed xtether app it says problem, praising the package.
    what to plz help me

  • dweezle

    I get a “parsing” error when trying to install X tether in this process. I am on Android 4.1.2 XDA has this same method but says it is for versions 4.4+ Could that be why I am getting the parsing error? Not compatible with less than 4.4.

  • Rick

    I just installed it, and it does worked like a champ flawlessly.

  • michael wallace

    it wont let me install framework this command keeps coming up (make sure your device is rooted properly and you have not blocked shell commands.)

  • Hate tat there’s no help for people who are not as savvy as you guys in this subject I’m technically challenge I don’t quit so when I ask someone for help all I’m asking is at lease a reply I left sprint to goto T-Mobile cause no support I also took 30 accounts with me cause they tried me, all in all I just wanna root my phone can u help me figure this out p. s continue with ur journey

    • chris butler

      I can help. . What device are you using?

      • Lolo

        I have a note 3 & a note 10.1 2014 Edition the tablet is rooted using towelroot no problem, but towelroot won’t work on my note 3 because I updated to nf9 build but didn’t knw. Now I’m told this up & coming update 4.4.4 has issues so I’m holding back on that for now, now I want to root but don’t wanna trip knoxs to get it is it possible yeah or nay please help or reply tnks a bunch

        • G man

          Bro I would hold on, if towel root doesnt work maybe your best option is to hold on till there is a stable method, on the other hand there are people that say you can do it by down grading the modem, honestly for me that is too much steps, and most of the times the wi fi gets messed up and has issues, give it some time and hopefully you will have a stable option

      i have been unable to get this to work on my rooted Sprint S4. Did you have to do anything special, like editing the “settings.db” file, to get it to work on your S4?

      Any suggestions would be mos appreciated.

  • Fabian

    Does this work for nexus 5

    • Max Lee

      You don’t need it for N5, tether should work out of the box.

      • Joe

        Hey I know this can work for a Moto X which I have and the version is 4.4.2 I wanted to know before I root will I lose any data that’s important such as my contacts and etc or can I just use my gmail to get them all back?

        • Max Lee

          You can try it, you won’t lose any data from trying this, try Towelroot for rooting then you won’t lose any data.

      • Joe

  • Tinirabbit77

    Followed steps correctly; however after a minute or two sprint msg pops up saying I need to subscribe if I want to use the hotspot

    • Max Lee

      It seems it doesn’t work on certain Sprint phones for some reason, you may need to install a custom ROM or hotspot mod.

      • Tinirabbit77

        Hi Max,

        I have Sprint Galaxy Note 3. Please show me how to install custom rom or hotspot mod. Thank you very much

      • Dig

        Sorry for late response, turns out it’ll only work the first time but when I turn it off and try to turn it on again it doesn’t work. At this point I just reinstall the whole thing (followed the steps as posted) and it works again. Give it time to have your phone pick up internet before turning on wifi. Hope this helps.

    >There’s currently no laws in the U.S. protecting consumers from such abuse of tethering charges by carriers (there should be one in the future)

    It’s easy to say that we need to pass a law for everything that we don’t like, but the fact is that the US mobile broadband market is the envy of the world precisely because we don’t do that. You are ten times more likely to have 4G/LTE in the US vs in Europe, and we pay almost half the price per minute/megabyte of usage that they do.

  • Rudeboy

    I had tethering working for the last three weeks and I tried to fix another problem by entering the ##72786# when I was instructed by a sprint customer care person and the code modified something on my phone. To get tethering working, I had to add “tether_dun_required” with a value of 0 in order to make the tether work. I see that the changes by Sprint set the value back to 1 and when I set the value by to 0 and reboot the phone the value is set back to 1. How do I stop having “tether_dun_required” set back to 1?

    Hello MAX treve tether isnt working on my SGS3 sph-l710t For boo sd t mobile Cdma cell. And the show logs fail to load. Please help

  • J.J.

    Hey Max,
    I have a Galaxy S5 on Sprint, Android version 4.4.2. It is rooted with Towel Root. I had the TrevE Mod WiFi Tether app installed on my phone for the past six months or so. After playing with it for several hours and systematically checking/unchecking all the options, I finally got it to work. It was quirky (such as it would only work if my phone was not charging – if my phone was plugged into the wall charger, it would kick the tether off). Nevertheless, it worked, and I was happy. About a month ago, it just stopped working. Probably a security update or something. I tried the Xtether app as you suggested, and it would not work. I am desperate to get my WiFi tethering working… any suggestions? (on a side note, I just went out of town on a business trip yesterday, and my hotel wanted to charge $12 per night for internet access. I bit the bullet and signed up for the $20 per months from Sprint to get my WiFi tethering to work, but I would love to cancel it and tell Sprint to take a flying leap). Can you help???

    • J.J.

      Just checking to see if anyone has made any headway on getting the WiFi tether to work on a rooted Galaxy S5?

    I’ve just rooted my Sprint Spark version of the GS4 (SPH-L720T) and this is the first thing I tried. I could not get it to work. I performed everything exactly but Sprint still tells me that I have not subscribed to the service. I did a little reading and found that I’m not the only one with this issue. Any advice?

    • Craig

      Same here, Dan. Didn’t work on my new Sprint GS4 L720T. I’d give my right arm if I could get this thing to work.

        Hey all.Have a fix for you with sprint and tmobile for your hot spot and 5gig limit on tmobile as well. Tested and confirmed on tmobile GS4 note2 Note3 as well as sprint GS4.

    everything was good and when I hit framework it didn’t update. I turn on the hotspot and I get the no subscription popup error. Is it because I have lollipop?

  • Paul F.

    Hey Max, when you say we can uninstall the framework later if we want, do you mean that once we have wifi tether working, we don’t need the framework any more?

  • Paul Schmidt

    Does this work with S5 Active At&T?

    • andyforreal

      Yes. It worked on mine.

  • Christian Miramontes

    • Frederick

      If you have it rooted with a custom recovery there is a file that is flashed into the system that does the same thing typically.

  • Eddy Eddie

    I tried different methods before this one and none of them worked out… it’s excellent 😛

  • Lumakar Hanumandla

    i got Att galaxy s4 active i537. kitkat kernel date aug 29 2014. Rooted using KINGROOT. Not KingOroot. kingoroot on pc failed. I used KINGROOT without PC. It rooted. I backedup using NANDROIDBAckup. Removed devlix cache. Removed Tetheringapplications.apk tetherisngsupport.apk using Tigerbackup. Still the problem remained.
    So I tried this Exposedinstaller. It worked well after rebooting. Thank you. it should root do not worry. Root it first using KINGROOT for android. towelroot failed. geohot failed to root.

  • Lumakar Hanumandla

    i also renamed knoxfile in system/apps folder. still this did not solve problem. But this posting worked on Galaxy S4 Active I5347

  • Don Ray

    Seems to be working fine on my verizon gs4 4.4.2/NK1 with unlimited data.. Have been working on getting this capability for a while. Thanks so much. Question, once I sign onto the hotspot with another device, the mac address of that device shows up in fox )as you would expect). However, at the same time a second mac address pops up (2c:44:01:c3:63:1a) and I have no idea what it is. Doesn’t seem to be associated with any other devices. Before I installed your fix, if I tried to disallow that connection in wifi, I lost the hot spot. vow? Any ideas?
    Thanks again for your great assistance!

  • Dong Duong
