    it is game over? ...now that there will be no more free tethering for unlimited data since all new phones come with KitKat and can't be rooted?
    (examples: HTC One M8 and soon, the Samsung Galaxy S5, both of which can't be rooted, as least not for a long time....)

    I have been following those threads as well. It appears that they don't work on the Verizon version, or that it sets off the KNOX warranty void flag....

    after searching on XDA, I guess the answer is no for both.

    Not true for the m8. It's s off and can use free tethering. As for Sammy s5 not possible in the mean time.
