Re: tethering issue

Hi. I have tried that. I have also reset my phone back to factory Aswell. No change for USB or WiFi tether

Is it possible to downgrade too 4.4.4 or 4.4.2,  this update is totally unacceptable, it is now interfering with my work due to not be able to tether to my desktop for Internet access.


Thanks for takin the time to reply
