Default Success!! WiFi Tethering!!!

I was just able to turn on wifi tethering on the phone without needing root.

looks like they left the capability in the phone but just removed the menu from settings.




I'll post how to do it after I test out a few more things.+


@@@ Update @@@
thanks to Silvist for pointing this out.

A new version of the Wifi Tether app is working with the indulge.

Im getting 5mb down from the phone to my ipad.
http://androidinvasion.us/apps/wifi_tether_v3_0-pre13.apk

Under wifi tether app settings
Change Device-Profile to Samsung Galaxy Indulge
Change Setup-Method to Auto
and Access-Control should be off unless you want it and know what it is.


I ran it on my phone for two and a half hours. The battery went from 86% to 9%. The phone didnt become hot like it did when using barnical. Also by using the settings listed the hotspot will run in infrastructure mode, not Ad-Hoc.

If you get the app "Power Control Plus" Create a custom widget with one of the buttons set to wi-fi tethering.


You will now have a button to turn wifi tethering on and off. When you turn tethering on after a few seconds you will see androids built in wifi tether icon show up in the notification bar.


I checked with my wireless device(ipad) and sure enough a new hotspot was visable called AndroidAP.

But by default it has encryption turned on. I'm going through the source code right now trying to figure out what the default password is. And I have been trying a few other things to try and reset the password to something else. If anyone knows how to crack wifi passwords and wants to give that a go while I trying and figure out a simple way to fix this, please do.



**UPDATE***

Hotspot widget also works to do this and is free in the market.

I've noticed this wifi hotspot app a little while back and even created a shortcut to the widget and put it on the home screen. somewhere on xda-developers or howardforums somebody had stubled upon it, too. Problem is, of course, encryption. And it's WPA/WPA2, not WEP (or is it?). Folks have tried "metropcs", "mymetropcs", 10digitbumber@metropcs, etc. - to no avail. Common sense tells me that it has to be unique for every unit and then my best guess is that it's created using some sort of algorythm based on IMEI or something else that is specific to every phone. What I was going to suggest instead is, if we can get root access - even if from the command prompt, - can we also inject-install either a pre-configured 3rd party tethering app or at least change the config file for the Android one with our own wpa passphrase? or do we even know where it's located and how the data in there is stored?

Woah, I always thought tethering was where you just usb plug in your phone to your laptop to use for internet. But I see playing around with it that it creates its own wifi hotspot to a degree?

yes, the phone becomes a hotspot and any device that connects to it shares its 4G connection.


Many phones are not capable of this, or can do it only in ad-hoc mode so this is great news.



The WIFI Hotspot widget also seems to work at turning the phones built in hotspot on and its a free app.

that's right. technically, tethering is the term used for the an ad-hoc situation of a phone-to-computer tether (usually, over usb or bluetooth). However, when I USB-tethered my old phone, it actually served as a DHCP server and assigned an IP address to my computer. Now that there are wireless mobile hotspot options available, even though, it's not tethering anymore, the term "wifi-tether" just stuck to it

hey, thanks, Mike. Interestingly enough, when I read your first post, I thought you were referring to something that actually came with the phone but had no shortcut visible on home screen or in "all apps". it turns out that this widget that you posted the link to, controls the same built-in android function that metro tried to hide (instead of completely removing?). It can be found through any cut https://market.android.com/details?id=com.appdroid.anycut&feature=search_resu lt -> Activity -> hotspot toggle. That's how I brought it to home screen anyway...

Ummm, hi. Dunno if this has been tried yet, should've been, but those of us with flashed phones had to use an MSL calculator to convert the phone's MEID to a decimal number and use it as a unique password to access the internet. But, again, I'd be very surprised if that hasn't been tried yet. Thanks for working at it - I wait anxiously for the solution.

about a week ago we started trying to break this wpa2 encryption too over on howardforums

i had downloaded the app HotSpot toggle just messing around with it and i found out that there are hotspot capability's in our phone because it turned on and was visable on my laptop.

the hotspot toggle app is free but that darn wpa2 encryption is a pain in the arse we have tried

phone number
mymetropcs
mymetropcs in numeric form
different variations of the imei
1234567890
0123456789
8888metro8
8888638768

but yeah those were all a no go LOL

Yeah I looked at that too, but the key must be 8 characters or more. The settings have to be saved somewhere. If only we knew where the settings where saved, I could then just get a T-Mobile android phone (that allows hotspot), save a password that we know and then take the settings file and drop it into the Indulge.

That's exactly what I've been searching for, Mike. I have a T-Mobile HTC HD2 running Android FroYo 2.2 from HTC Desire. If I knew which file stores wpa passphrase, I'd share that file with everybody...

Tongue Well...

Has anyone tried Barnacle? It seems pretty promising, but since i have an Opt M that came stock w/ 2.2.1 I don't think I am fully rooted. "Absolute system" (Program) uses SU mode and I changed my boot animation and PowerOn mp3, but I can't seem to get some things to work. I feel like my phone is the asian kid from Indiana Jones, being pulled between the minecars. ;-)

I believe, I tired Barnacle. To no avail, of course.

Cool I got Wifi Tethering to work! (2.2.1 Stock, rooted)

I just DL'd "Wireless Tether" from Market,
and it works. Slower than crap, but it worked right away.
Now if i can just finger out how to use custom boot recovery...

i don't think they are that dumb to use the same code for every device, especially given that we cannot change it (yet?)

Any brave souls want to try locating a Settings.apk from a t-mobile phone and swap it out for the one on your phone. See if it then gives the wifi tether menu to reset the password?

Mike: I'd be a perfect candidate. Where on the phone can I find the file? Please, post the patch to it. Thanks.

Yeah looks to me like the settings.apk on our phone was edited to remove the hotspot feature but there are still remnances of it in there. Its got 3 hotspot HTML help pages repeated in every language. I'm thinking swapping out the settings.apk with one from a tmobile phone would bring back the hotspot menu. If so we could use it to reset the password and then put back the original file.


I dont suggest anyone try this unless they have CWM and know how to perform a restore if it doesnt work.

Hey everyone! Thanks! Looks like we finally have root. Yahoo! Still can't get any of the wifi tethering apps to work. wifitether for rot users fails to install. everything else doesn't work. worst of all, we know we have droid native hotspot feature, we can turn it on but we can't change the code. I think someone was going to let someone else crack that wpa2 code on one of our phones. any word on how that went?

OK. I managed to snatch Settings.apk from an FroYo 2.2.1 with full unrestricted hotspot capabilities (European version). Posting it here. Let me know if you think some of this is useful...

yeah we just need someone brave enought to test it out and see if it works. Getting the built in hotspot feature would be our best option.



But i have good news, I have wireless tethering working with the app from the app store named Barnacle. Down side is that it doesnt seem to be getting full speeds, im ony getting about 1mb up/down. Not the best but its better than nothing for right now.


**Note**
After installing Barnacle go into settings and Enable Skip WPA_supplicant.
Changing other settings may make the app stop working. I tried changing a bunch of settings and enabling WEP but the app then stopped working until i uninstalled it and reinstalled it.

Perhaps, the gentleman with FRU units? Although, technically, if we can use adb to swap those files in the phone back n forth while the phone is in the download/recovery mode, then we should have a backup plan...

re Barnacle: isn't it only ad-hoc and no infrastructure?.. I couldn't get it to work anyway...

OK...
I've been following this thread for quite a while now, and actually just join AF to post this sad news.
It looks like the wifi password is not anywhere in the open source file provided, so it is not the way it comes standard from Samsung, but something metropcs did.
A simple search for the word AndroidAP in every file in the source code came up with nothing.
I am going to search throughout the code for the settings source code, and maybe compare it with that of a fascinate, and let you know if i find something good.

And no, I don't have an Indulge (yet).
---Still waiting to see if a MIR is coming up soon before I decide to head out there and get it.

Well, to keep you folks up to date, I still don't have anything good yet, I have not been able to find anything interesting yet in the samsung source code.
I am Computer Science Student, so I am somewhat familiar with source code.
I have been going through all the document as of late and trying to see what I can get, but so far, I don't see anything.
The source code is not provided in the hierarchy i was expecting, so it's taking me longer to go through it...
Also, I've been trying to see what the test passwords hardcoded in the files are, and I don't have anything good as of yet.

So far, I have:
passphrase
secret passphrase
very secret passphrase
12345678
SECRETSAUCE
password
PASSWORD
06b4be19da289f475aa46a33cb793029d4ab3db7a23ee92382 eb0106c72ac7bb
000102030405060708090a0b0c0d0e0f101112131415161718 191a1b1c1d1e1f
06b4be19da289f475aa46a33cb793029
mypassword

none of which are very promessing.
I'll keep you all posted.
Maybe I should just get the phone...
I still haven't quite decided…

yeah i pushed it over to the phone but it wouldnt run on the phone.

it would ask if I want to replace the current settings. I hit yes and then it would just say application not installed.


This was pushing it over and not replacing it entirely. I figured if I pushed it over as settings2.apk and ran it I could do a factory reset if anything went wrong and go back to having the default settings app.

progress update so far:
install titaniumbackup
backup everything to SD Card
mount SD card and copy folder TitaniumBackup
Find and extract the contents of file com.android.providers.settings-20110306-201549.tar.gz (where numeric portion is timestamp)
go to dbdata\databases\com.android.providers.settings in the resulting folder tree and open file settings.db with this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/sqlite-manager/ (this is firefox plugin; install it, restart firefox, go tools -> SQLite Manager). In SQLite Manager Go Database -> Connect DataBase -> Select to show all file types and browes to where you extracted settings.db. On the left side go to Tables -> Secure. Click "Secure" to highlight. Then on the right side go to Execute SQL tab and copypaste the following 4 strings into the "Enter SQL" field:

insert into secure (name, value) values ('wifi_ap_hide', 0);
insert into secure (name, value) values ('wifi_ap_security', 1);
insert into secure (name, value) values ('wifi_ap_ssid', 'Android Unlimited');
insert into secure (name, value) values ('wifi_ap_passwd', 'mypassword');

where Android Unlimited is the name of SSID and mypassword is your desired password. Change those two fields to your liking...

Click the Run SQL button
At this point you won't have any output. To check whether the above procedure was successful, copy-paste the following into "Enter SQL" field:

select * from secure where name like 'wifi_ap%';

Hit Run SQL

You should now have some output showing the above settings in tables in the field below

If you don't check the steps above. If you do, Go Database -> Close Database

Now use 7-Zip or any other of the many free tar.gz management tools available (winrar won't inject into tar.gz archive). BACKUP ORIGINAL tar.gz file first, then replace with the new version

Unmount SD card from PC, run titanium backup and restore everything.

Let me know, if this works... Also, if someone knows of another wireless utility to control Android native wifi stuff for phones like ours where it's been purposefully taken away, please post...
