    I am trying to set up tethering, it does not require root, and I an following this guide. I get to the step where it says this, Now we boot from TWRP without having to flash/install it. I type in this command, fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.0-bullhead.img, but the command prompt keeps saying this,
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>fastboot boot twrp-2.8.7.0-bullhead.img
    < waiting for device >
    cannot load 'twrp-2.8.7.0-bullhead.img': No such file or directory. I put the file in the same folder as adb/fastboot install.

    Well, I'm not too sure why you are getting that error. I do know that the TWRP that your trying to use is old. You want the one you can get here: https://dl.twrp.me/bullhead/

    It is version 3.0.2.

    Yeah I'm on the new one now but it still didn't work so I decided to root and install TWRP, but now I have a new problem.
    I am going through the steps on tethering and get stuck on this step, trying to pull the build.prop file.. I enter this into the command prompt.

    adb pull /system/build.prop

    Then this comes up.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Adb pull /system/build.prop
    915 KB/s (4691 bytes in 0.005s)

    But where is the file, did it pull it?

    I didn't do this at all and I am fully able to Wi-Fi tether using my 5X on MetroPCS. I've tried this Nexus 7 before and I've tethered my kid's Wi-Fi only devices. Who do you use for your service provider? Have you just tried to tether out of the box? Like I said, is works great for me.

    OP, I know it's a bit late, but I've moved your thread to the 5X root area for you, since you're delving in to tasks that the typical user won't encounter.

    In your first post, did you have your device in fastboot/bootloader mode (and do you have the proper fastboot USB driver installed)?

    Cheers!

    I had the same thing. This is late but for future reference to enable tethering just simply edit the build.prop found in the /system partition. Take a crack and root your phone then add the line
    Code (Text):
    1. net.tethering.noprovisioning=true
    to the very end of the build.prop.
