i tried changing a bunch of different settings in the free wifi tehter app settings although even when the logs shows no fields failed, i have yet to be able to see my ssid on any deivice i can never see the signal being brodcasted form my s4 to even try and connect to it.

i got the metropcs s4 , sgh-m919n (thought it was same as t-mobile (tim-lee-moble) i got the unlimited $60 plan.

i was reading an article on xda [KERNEL] Stock Touchwiz MDB - SetUID Restriction Removed

being said basically something about the stock kernel`s setuid preventing it from working , has anyone tried this on the metro branded (t-mobile) s4? i was concerned about messing up the phone. the tutorial is for the t-mobile branded version of the s4 - so subtract the metropcs

ps. "whats the difference between them now!?!?!?!?!?"
If wifi tethering is your goal then i would follow Shabbypenguins advice and first flash a recovery and root your device. The instructions for this is two posts back from yours

Once done you may want to check this thread. Some have written that they had success with this method.

Wifi tether

Good luck!
