So, you want to get FREE wifi tethering mobile hotspot on your AT&T Galaxy Note SGH-i717? Normally you would have to pay extra $20-30 a month for mobile hotspot functionality but you can bypass this and get it for free.
*Note – This does give you FREE wifi tethering BUT it still counts under your monthly internet usage plan UNLESS you have grandfathered unlimited plan from AT&T.
Step 1. Download and install Titanium Backup app from the Market.
Step 2. Open Titanium Backup app, choose “Backup/Restore” tab and find “TetheringManager”.
Step 3. Choose “Tethering Manager” and hit “Un-install”.
Step 4. Run the Portable Wi-Fi hotspot and it should work now.
Step 5. Verify connecting your computer or other wireless device.
