Enables SMS, Tethering, USSD codes, and SIP calling feature on Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 (2012: GSM and 2013: LTE version), 9 and 10 and Moto E, G and X running Android 4.4+ using the Xposed Framework (http://forum.xda-developers.com/xposed/xposed-installer-versions-changelog-t2714053).
You need to have the Xposed Framework installed in order to make this app/module work!!!
Install the Xposed Framework
Install this module
Activate the module in the Xposed module manager
Reboot your device
Enjoy the freedom ;)
It is not necessary to install this app on a device already having the SMS and tetheing functionality. This mod might also work on non-Nexus or Moto devices though, with a proper radio (2G, 3G, 4G) but with disabled SMS or with disabled tethering options (by the vendor/provider).
I would appreciate it if you could rate the module after trying it out and maybe leave a comment to explain what you think of it. Maybe you also have a feature request.
The tethering function for example was such a feature request.
