    Default revert to 14.0 carrier bundle and restore personal hotspot
    as the title says, if you updated you carrier profile and now find yourself without tethering, and your not JB.then
    use this .ipcc file to revert back to 14.0
    all this is is a tmobile .ipcc with added code(just some lines) that will cause the signature to fail. therefor reverting to the original unknown.bundle that was used before the OTA tmobile profile.extract attached file and.

    On Mac:

    - Open Terminal and type: defaults write com.apple.itunes carrier-testing -bool true

    On Windows:

    - Start>Run>cmd
    - “%ProgramFiles%\iTunes\iTunes.exe” /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    - Open up iTunes.
    - Plug in your iPhone, and select it in the sidebar.
    - Option+click (Mac)/Shift+click (Windows) on the “Update” button.
    - A windows will pop up, select the revert.ipcc file you extracted from revert.zip
    - iTunes will then update your carrier settings
    - Reboot phone*

    I also found that if you add backspace.jp Cydia Repository (the same repo that has the hack to enable LTE on an iPhone 5).

    First you'll want to install the com center patch then install the Carrier Update Remover.

    After running the Carrier Update Remover your phone will start searching for a signal and this will last for several seconds. Once your phone finds a signal you should be able to go into your settings and it'll look like in did before the update was installed.

    WTF did you do? I did this and it took AWAY the personal hotspot. WARNING do not do this for the hell of it. I hadn't updated yet and was just testing and now I'm F'd. I hope a restore works.

    Or...you can just use the Cydia tweak "TetherMe" and it will allow hotspot again. (paid app)

    No jailbreak for 6.1.3. Hopefully the restore from backup from iCloud will bring it back.

    It worked, as long as you don't do a backup after the carrier update your good. I have it back and stupid me for testing anything but I don't think this carrier update brings back the personal hotspot and it just breaks it if you haven't done it. Wonder how I can get the lovely 4G icon

    For got to mention you need to reboot your phone for this to take effect. If you don't reboot the hot spot option disappears.

    Did you reboot after applying this?

    Hummm. to add to this.

    Got an iPhone5 from T-mobile. It was on 6.1.3. but the carrier was still on Carrier 14. After doing an update to the carrier that changed it to T-mobile 14.1 i did the restore from above and it gave me back my Hotspot but it still says T-Mobile 14.1. Very strange.

    On an Iphone 4s it reverts back to Carrier 14.

    Just my feed back. seems to work but show different info.

    So I was on 14.0 Carrier and all of the sudden today I checked my phone and it was on 14.1 Tmobile Carrier Update. I did not update the carrier settings that I know of unless I/my wife accidentally did. Is it possible that they force-push over the update?

    Also do we know if we can stay on 14.0 and somehow still get visual voicemail activated somehow as well?

    Thanks & keep the discussion coming!!

    No on the Force-push update. No also on the 14 + VVM. on gizmodo or another site some people are hacking the 14.1 to run faster hspa+ with VVM and trying to get tether working also. but no luck for tether (as of this post).

    Cool thanks for the clarification; it would be awesome to have a hacked 14.1 with tethering -- keeping my fingers crossed!

    Unfortunately, even applying this reversion, it still won't update to 14.1 with the new notifications.

    14.2 killed my hotspot, applied the Revert.ipcc and got hotspot back briefly for a min or two... until tmobile forced a 14.2 automatic update again that killed hotspot

    Any solutions?

    UPDATE: Applied Revert.ipcc again and now sticking. No auto carrier update so far. It seems when it auto updated before and overwrote this Revert.ipcc, It happened as soon as I entered some page inside the Settings manu (General->About? can't remember) Or maybe just coincidence on when the carrier triggered its auto update.

    Update (7/8/13): Tmobile forced a 14.2 update on again

    Man ... I think I just got a forced update from Tmo. I'm now on 14.2. And no more hotspot. I'll do the revert later when I get home.
