Is it possible to port SoftAP to the Elite?
From what I've gathered, SoftAP allows creation of an infrastructure mode wifi tether that can be seen by more devices than the standard ad-hoc method the Elite currently is limited to. I came across this page that shows how to port WLAN SoftAP to Gingerbread: Porting WLAN SoftAP to Android - OMAPpedia
I'm trying to teach myself the finer points of working with the Android filesystem, but my time is limited and I can't install Linux on the computer I'm using. I've tried using Cygwin but I can't even figure out how to rebuild a boot.img that doesn't send me into a bootloop.
So I thought I'd throw this idea out there and see if there's any merit to the idea of including it in the Elite kernel.
