USB tethering is greyed out on S4 mini debug is ticked

Your phone will go into debug mode when it is tethered - that's normal. Your device not allowing tethering is not.

Try removing and reinserting your battery and then trying the process over again. If you still can't enable tethering, try switching which USB port you're using on your Laptop, or connecting your device to Kies to look for an update, and then retrying the process.

USB tethering option greyed out?

When I connect my Samsung Tab2 to the Laptop, it charges and it would not let me do data transfer. I have the USB tethering option in the developer options ON. But when I connect it to USB and go under more settings and USB and try to toggle the USB tethering to data transfer mode, it won't let me. The option is greyed out and the message is no USB device connected whereas I actually am plugged in.
