    all credit goes to original thread authors I am just putting together to make it easy to achieve.

    1st root your MAXX by going here - [Root] Droid Ultra / Maxx / Mini - Update 9/13/2013 - Version 1.1 - xda-developers
    click on the apk files under the attached files, then install SuperSU / send the Developer some cash while you are there

    then go to this link to remove the entitlement check to allow using your stock WiFi hotspot for free (grandfathered unlimited plans)- Mobile Hotspot Hack - VZW Droid Razr/Razr Maxx HD General [XT926] - {Q&A, Discussion} - DroidRzr.com

    I have used this on and off with no issues (billing) for a few years now and I'm thrilled to have it with the MAXX


    word to the wise - don't abuse your tethered data (of course I'm not responsible for what you do...)

    I need some help. I rooted my Maxx by the method in the first post here. I also did the change to the entitlement check from a 1 to a 0. I know that I am rooted because I can use Titanium Backup now. On my GNex I was using SVTP for a free mobile hotspot. SVTP still does not work. I also tried Wifi Tether for Root Uses and that also did not work. Can someone tell me what apps do work to enable a free hotspot? Or perhaps I didn't do it right? What have you got to work?

    The OP is about the exact same hack: changing the entitlement check value

    If you changed the entitlement check value then you don't need any apps - use the built-in tethering - enable it in Settings-More-Tethering and Mobile Hotspot. I tested and it works. On a side note, Wifi for root users works too, check your settings

    Thank you! I didn't know I could just use the native hotspot. Its working for me. Now if I could only get Google Wallet or Isis to work (sigh). And in case anyone is wondering...I have Isis installed but there is some kind of issue with my Chase credit card, but I am working on it!

    You have to unroot for ISIS to work - it checks for the root status every time it started. The good news is that the entitlement check hack will still work after unrooted - so tethering will continue to work. The outlook for Google Wallet is not as bright, I would even say that most likely it will never work on our phones, ifik.

    It works fine on my Maxx with 4.4 but the procedure is a little different.
    SQ Editor and search for app Settings Storage.

    settings storage / settings.db / secure / entitlement check
    select edit from top
    and change value from 1 to 0
    and save

    I think the bigger issue is obtaining root access on an unrooted 4.4 maxx.

    KitKat removed the entitlement check.

    You need to install the modified APK or run the Moto Tether for Xposed, if you have root.

    Not on mine The check is just in a different place. As I already posted.

    Will you polease stop bumping this up?!!

    Everytime I see it, it looks like someone figured out the tethering on Kitkat.

    For crying out loud!!

    I don't understand reddog. Is it your not rooted or does the method I posted not work for you. If you are rooted I can be more careful in my explanation of how to do it. I did go back through it on my Maxx today to be sure it is still working under KitKat 4.4. Works like a charm. If you are not rooted I don't think you can do it.

    I've been considering this as well, but I'm waiting on that price to drop. With the moto x trend, its gotta come down soon. The maxx at Verizon has dropped, the moto x and de version have dropped. Maxx de has to be soon!

    I have the DE edition and would not buy any other one. Once you unlock it...it's good to go. Just flash TWRP and a super use app and you have root. Move from 2.2 to 4.4 and back to 2.2 with just a few Motorola fastboot commands. Plus if you have a Del edition Motorola makes the official 4.4, 2.2 flashable recoveries and Motorola fastboot (for windows Mac and unix) available to you with some instructions for using the Motorola ADB fastboot commands. I use a Mac running Mavericks so it's nice to have the Motorola ADB fastboot installed because it will handle the bigger flashable recoveries which means you don't have to use some of the widows only apps like RSD lite or whatever.
