noob here.. I have a few rooted phones and I have a spare HTC EVO 4G. Spare as in not on a network, just wifi, its just a house phone on Google Voice. I'm looking for a ROM I can flash it with that I can still use titanium backup, Link2SD, still has GPS, wifi, camera functions but I don't care about 4G anything. No 3g, 4g, 4g wimax, 4g lte and whatever else they have... just wifi access.
So facebook somehow bricked my wifes phone, so I restored it back to factory and re-rooted it etc. I've tried flashing three roms Venum Ice Reborn MK4 1.0/2.0 and FTW Annihilation 1.0 MK4 and when the rom boots up the wifi won't enable. So I restored my Nand backup and wifi works. Is it just these two roms or is there something else I'm missing.
So I found an app that will allow you to create a WiFi Hotspot in infrastructure mode and not ad-hoc. The phone itself needs to be rooted in order to bypass your carrier's network authentication and set itself up as a WiFi Hotspot setting, but any devices you are trying to connect to the Hotspot will not have to be rooted. The name is WiFi Tether Router and is in the play store.
So i just decided to root my phone for the free wifi tethering to my laptop...I havent installed any custom rom just stock rooted with S-On(dont know if that matters).Ive used the Wifi tether app from the google market it connects but it takes me to the t mobile website asking me to add wifi tethering to my plan.
As I'm sure you all know, prior to 4.3, we could use tethering with foxfi without an issue. Now that we're on 4.3, it no longer works. I decided to root, with the saferoot method, got everything set up, and can't use any wifi tether apps still? half of them check the status of the wifi subscription via verizon, and the others say device not rooted.
I had a rooted first gen Nexus 7 running under stock 4.2. It was pretty good. I rooted it and had TWRP.
I upgraded to 4.3 OTA, and then rerooted using the wugfresh toolkit. Now my wifi keeps reconnecting every few seconds to every minute. I seem to be the only one reporting this issue. I'm kind of a Android newbie.
I have a rooted lg optimus f6 from metro i am on the 60 dollar unlimited plan, i was trying to get my rooted wifi tether runing to try and connect to my ps3 the problem is i was reading on one of these forums that i had to install root browser and delet hostapd and i did, now when i turn on rooted wifi or stock mobile hotspot it is not showing up on any device im trying to connect to it is not di
I recently upgraded from 12.04 to 14.04 and now I apparently have no wifi device. I believe its an RT73-based chipset, and I do seem to have rt73.bin in /lib/firmware. The system insists that I have no wifi device installed.
Any hint, tips, or pointers? Yes, I've been trawling the forums, but nothing seems to work.
