"Error" in Mobile Hotspot Android Nougat

I can't seem to enable USB tethering or mobile hotspot when using mobile data on my EE 4G sim. I've tried rebooting, resetting network preferences and the like but nothing gives. I can enable the hotspot fine before turning on data but when I do, the hotspot has an error. If I do it the other way around the same thing happens.

Hi, 

 

Are you on EE, Tmobile or Orange? 

 

Are you pay monthly or PAYG? 

 

Have you tried deleting the system cache in recovery? 

 

Thanks

Hi @maxiesnax

 

Do you know if the hotspot worked before rooting or was it not tested?

 

Many thanks,

It wasn't tested on this rom I'm using currently however it has worked peviously on other rooted roms. Could it be the rom?

Hi @maxiesnax

 

It does sound like an issue with the Rom.

 

Might be worth while popping over to XDA Developers as you may find the relevant information 😉

 

Cheers
