    in my defense i misunderstood how titanium backup's freeze feature works. thought that made a backup, not that a backup was a seperate operation. saw some thing that made me think i can work around paying for tether by putting the stock hotspot in user mode and clearing the application default, then freezing, so i'm not doing this just to be dumb or anything.

    was able to find the hotspotlauncher.odex and hotspotlauncher.apk from a stock rom, trying to run from device (after enable install from non-market sources) immediately gets error "application not installed"

    any advice on how to reinstall stock mobile hotspot app on droid 4 much appreciated.

    the best bet is to
    1.root your phone.
    2.install root explorer.
    3.copy the needed files to your sd card(apk, odex)
    4.navigate to /system/app with root explorer
    5.change the folder to rw from ro
    6.copy the odex and apk from your sdcard to /system/app
    7.change premissons of odex and apk to rw-r-r
    8.change the folder back to ro
    9.reboot

    Thanks much, I'll let you know how this goes after work today. I'm not 100% sure that those 2 files are the only ones needed but we'll see.

    I was freezing some apps with Titanium shortly after I got my hands on my Droid 4 back in February and I had just woken up and my eyes were quite up to snuff and I ended up deleting my Browser! I tried all sorts of things to bring it back and nothing worked.. I thought I would have to hold out for a sbf. However, I downloaded your files and pulled Browser.apk and Browser.odex and followed the above instructions and my Browser is back!

    Thank you very much!
