IF THAT FILE NO LONGER WORKS, USE THE ONE I HAVE ARCHIVED HERE

Step 2: Install Supersu

Install this APK via the play store to allow programs to use the root user

Step 3: Install Root Browser

Install this APK via the play store to browse your phone
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrummy.root.browserfree&hl=en

Step 4: TeatheringProvision Clobbering

Open “Root Browser” and rename two files from .apk to .apkbak (you can actually name them whatever you want)
/system/app/TeatheringProvision.apk -> /system/app/TeatheringProvision.apkbak
/system/app/TeatheringProvision.odex -> /system/app/TeatheringProvision.odexbak

Step 5: Restart

Restart your phone

Step 6: Install FoxFi

Install this APK via the play store to run the hotspot
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.foxfi2&hl=en
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.foxfi.addon&hl=en
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.foxfi.key&hl=en

Start your FoxFi and Enable Proxy
Enable proxy by pressing the menu button on your phone and you’ll see it in the middle of the menu options.

Step 7: Use Proxy Service (with Chrome Browser)

You should use proxy service with all devices attached to the phone. You can actually do this on the OS level so you’re always using the proxy service. I’m only going to show you how to do it with Chrome because doing it on the OS level is a bitch and you probably only need tethering because you want to browse the web.

Step 8: Install Switchy! plugin to your Chrome browser

Set up Switchy! This is what mine looks like, yours should look the same minus the Profile Name.
Note: “Dragonfly” is the name of my phone, you can put whatever you want.
