Ok, so here it is (drum roll) LG G Flex D950 Hotspot hack. I do not take responsibility for doing this I simply tried it on my device and it worked.

AT&T LG G Flex D950 Hotspot hack:

  1. Download SQLite Editor (I have the paid version)
  2. Open the file – /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
  3. There’s a field named ‘tether_entitlement_check_state’. in System. Original value is set to 5. Changed it to 0 and save
  4. Reboot the phone
  5. Enjoy tethering using AT&T app, not necessary to install any other app.

USB tethering works great too.

Not sure if this hack works for other versions, anyway I’m using the app that came pre-installed, it is part of AT&T bloatware.

T-Mobile’s variant of the LG G Flex started receiving an update (D95920s) last night that weighs in at 220MB. Sadly, this is not the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update, at least for now, is mostly a mystery. T-Mobile has yet to post a changelog to their support area, so until that happens, we will have to rely on your word.

LG G3 users on T-Mobile, were you able to download the update? If so, what changes do you notice?

Baseband version: M8974A-AAAANAZM-2.0.20064

Kernel Version: 3.4.0

To check for the update, head into Settings>About Phone>Update center>System updates>Check now.
