    I have been trying to eliminate pesky bloat from At&t on my phone labeled "Mobile Hotspot", it does not show up as an app in Titanium Backup or any other bloatware removing apps. All this app does is open up a sub menu of settings to enable wifi tethering or wifi hotspot, when enabling wifi from the sub menu a toast notification declares "Turning on Portable Wi-Fi hotspot will turn off Wi-Fi". I use rootless pixel launcher, and checking the launcher's app db, "Mobile Hotspot" is labeled com.android.settings/com.android.settings.Settings$WifiApSettingsActivity.

    Deleting this entry in my pixel launcher's db does nothing, and it gets repopulated almost immediately. I have tried to mess around with com.android.settings package in /data/data but have not been successful either. Where is the source, or at the least what do I need to do to eliminate this annoying useless app?

    It's a setting in the Settings app, not an app by itself.
