Default Disable Data Throttle (Carrier)

Thanks to Skater-187 from the prevail forums for this find

Do this at your own risk, make a backup first

Wanted to share this info with any TU user who didnt already know

I have tested this both on Stock ROM and Chevan ROM

make sure 3g is off and your on wifi or airplane mode

I used root explorer,but i imagine you can use any root file manager

1-Make a backup of your current build in cwm
2-Open root explorer and change r/o to r/w
3-Navigate to Data/System
4-Inside Data/System you will find a folder labeled Throttle
5-Long press Throttle folder and select permessions
6-Change permissions to Owner: read and execute only, everything els should be unchecked, when finished press ok and go back
7-Open Throttle folder and there should be two items in it if your on stock and three if your on Shevron Rom
8-Make copies of all items in throttle folder wether it be two or three and save them on your pc or a new folder on your sd..That way if something were to go wrong youd have your backup and copies of the files
9-Once you have made copies of the throttle folders contents delete them (wether it be two or three) from throttle folder
10-Back out of Data/System and change r/w back to r/o, exit root explorer and reboot
A simple THANK YOU will do
