(How To) Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 Hotspot WiFi Tether Hack

Prerequisite: Your Galaxy S4 must be Rooted!

WiFi_Tether-300x224This will enable the internal system wifi tethering on your settings menu. This is for Samsung Galaxy S4 on Sprint. Do at your own risk. You are about to replace your Services Jar file and odex files, so… At your own risk. I claim no responsibility and modifying your phone in such a manner is your responsibility and liability. Why? Because you own your phone. I don’t… and neither does Sprint. I am providing this information for educational purposes.

Make sure you install the right version for your phone.

  1. Go to settings | More | About device.
  2. Look at build number.
    1. To tell which file you need, look at the end of your phone’s Firmware Build Number
    • My Phone:
      SPH-L720
      Android 4.2.2
      Basband L720VPUAMDC (Now lately MK2)
      Kernal 3.4.0-442222
      Build JDQ39.L720VPUAMDC (Now lately MK2)
  3. Match yours to the zips below.
  4. If you are odexed flash odex and vice versa.
    • If you aren’t sure whether you are, use a root file explorer (ROM Toolbox Lite) and check in system/app.
      If you see .odex files you are odexed. If not you are deodexed.

    I am trying to do this without annoying anyone but I also don’t want to screw up my phone. I love my phone. It has a new battery and it works better (IMO) than newer versions. I can’t figure out which files to download and what to do after that. I’m pretty sure I figured out how to root it a few months ago but I got scared after that.

    Thanks! Allen (dr.allen.howell@gmail.com)
