Sorry was just offering other suggestions to the hack.
Well i checked it out on my RAZR Maxx, JB 4.1.2, worked like a charm only its line "79 Entitlement check 1"
changed it to 0 and...Wala rebooted to Vz wifi tether and thanks again
For anyone having issues, try this alternative and FREE method:
Confirmed working on my original Razr Maxx with new OTA JB update.
OP has been UPDATED... This Hack goes further as a RAZR_ENTITLEMENT_HACK.
What does the entitlement hack do? What is it for?
Thanks in advance for the answer
Entitlement hack turns off the check by your phone to see if you're enrolled in the Verizon Wireless Mobile Hotspot in order to do wireless WiFi tethering with the Mobile Hotspot app. It also enables PDANet+ to work as well. Otherwise you get the following screens:

Don't know if this was answered, but there are TWO hammer and wrench files on my phone (this may be unique to my phone)...one near the top of the list, the other near the bottom. They are different in appearance, as the one at the top looks "fatter" (sorry, couldn't come up with a better description). The file names are in alphabetical order, so you want the one at the bottom (with the red handle) called "Settings : Storage" - without the spaces (again, see image below).
Note: YOU DO NOT want to edit the file named "entitlement" in the "E"s near the top.
No need to apologize, Redsnk...we appreciate all types of help. You may actually be on to something though. I will investigate further as I didn't see if you did the entitlement hack, yet you say it works. I'll report back.
Update; I'm happy to report that Wifi Tether 3.2 Beta 2 indeed works with root and NO entitlement hack (i.e. set to 1).
Good find, Redsnk95!
I have confirmed, the Entitlement Hack works on XT926 Razr/Maxx HD running on JB update version 4.1.2. The OP has been updated with settings/slight adjustment.
I did the entitlement hack using ashell and SQLite manager on my version Razr M DEV edition. Hotsopot is enabled and my devices connect to phone BUT no Internet access!! I tried accessing from phone with hotspot on the access from phone works. Clearly an issue with the wifi tether. Any ideas?
Today when the OTA killed my Foxfi/PDANet I rooted but it was still being blocked. I found this post and was able to fix my problem! The only thing that I had to change was the line to edit. I have a Razr Maxx. The line was 66 on my phone. I rebooted and it worked just fine. Barnacle won't work but I don't know how long that may have been a problem because I haven't used it in a very long time. Barnacle was getting a NAT error. But Foxfi/PDANet and WiFi Tether for Root Users both work fine.
Thanks KaChow!! :hail:
I downloaded Root Checker. It verifies that I have root access. Still, I have the same issue as tech_head. I don't see settings.db. I get the response that "No databases found." Any suggestions about what to do? Thanks.
Just to doublecheck that everything is functioning properly. First go into SuperUser> slide the screen to the left and press the "su binary v1.1X:SUPERSU, tap to check for updates"> select "Update" on the next screen "Allow" any of the pop-ups> if successful should see "That was cool, do it again." Next go into SQlite Editor or the default app you are using, look for "Settings Storage" it will be a Hammer standing up, with a wrench laying down behind it = this what the app looks like. Select it> there should be three options 1) android_metadata, 2) settings, 3) sqlite_sequence. Select #2) settings. Scroll down not sure what device you have but look for "entitlement_check" if you have not made the selection yet the Value will display "1"> go ahead and highlight this "entitlement_check" setting and select the pen in the upper screen> in the next screen change the "value" to 0 and select save. Reboot and enjoy.
If for any reason you still are unable to access the setting, go into your Titanium Backup or Backup app and check to make sure that you did not, "freeze or disable this app" by mistake.

Hi, Please find attached a screen shot of the portion in Settings where #79 is displayed
View attachment 61451
You write that: On XT912 Razr/Maxx “79 entitlement_check 1”7) Press the line to highlight the setting
8) Select the “Pen” at the top of the screen
9) Find the “value” and change to “0” and select “save”.
My #79 is 'network setting on boot'. Could direct me toward the setting that I need to change? Thanks.
Thank you very much. I did not have to take these additional steps after all. SQlite opened up and decided to play nice. I found "entitlement_Check" at #16 on the list. I changed the value to "0". I tethered the phone (Razr MAXX) to a laptop making sure that the laptop was not picking up a WiFi signal from my router. The rest is HX. No announcement from Verizon that I needed to sign a 2 year contract for blah, blah, blah $. Works like a charm. At least until Verizon figures out how to put a monkey wrench into the situation. :blink:
