Post by joejoe332006 »

Sick of not being able to turn ON the native WiFi Hotspot on your AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4? Want to have the native WiFi tethering working on your device? No worries, this guide should help you do that. By simply modifying a simple APK file, you’ll be able to share your AT&T data package with all of your WiFi enabled devices. Here’s how:

I. Before You Begin:

1. You must be rooted before you can do this procedure. If you aren’t rooted already, please Root your S4 then come back to this procedure and continue.

II. Downloading Required Files:

1. Tethering Provision APK http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1924779&d=1367331399

2. ES File Explorer https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estrongs.android.pop&hl=en

III. Enabling WiFi Tethering on the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4:

1. Place the APK file you just downloaded to your Desktop.

2. Connect your device to your PC using the USB cable.

3. Copy the APK file over to the root of your SD card.

4. Once the file’s been copied, disconnect your device from your PC.

5. Head over to the Google Play and download and install the ES File Explorer app on your device.

6. Once the app’s been installed, open it from your App Drawer.

7. Go to the /sdcard/ path where you copied the APK file to.

8. Copy the APK file using options available in the app.

9. Now head to /system/app/ directory and you’ll find these two files:

TetheringProvision.apk

TetheringProvision.odex

10. Rename both of these files to:

TetheringProvision.bak

TetheringProvision.bak2

11. Now paste the APK file you copied earlier using the app.

12. Reboot your device.

13. You’re all done!

Excellent! You’ve successfully enabled native WiFi Tethering on your AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4! Enjoy!
