How can I create a wireless hotspot in my Samsung Galaxy prevail phone by Boost-mobile
It may have been disabled by your carrier as some of them don't allow it. What do the T&C's in your contract say about tethering?
You must be rooted in order to do this . You can hard tether with Klink if you are not rooted . Check out the link below if you are rooted or plan on rooting your phone .
I have an galaxy prevail and I can promise you all that you can tether to your of by downloading pdanet in the android market and obviously it also works as a wifi hotspot as I am posting this from my iPod which is connected to my android wifi while I'm watching YouTube videos on my laptop which is also connected to my droid wifi. I mean 55 dollars a month. Only drawback it runs the battery down quick keep charger close and enjOy boosts great capabilities
It is a Blessing for those off us on a Budget. Watch the temperature on your phone, especially if you have it on the charger while running wifi hotspot. You can have it display in F or C
If it gets too hot it will reboot. I try to keep it well below 100 F. But heat is not good for it and could cause damage.
Here in Dixie, it is really only a problem in the hottest most humid months. Especially, if you are cheap with using the A/C.
I have the wireless tethering app included in my new Rom.
Cool! Skater, you got the native tethering to work or the one from here?:
That's the one. I got it to work from the system/app directory, so I included it in HoneyBread3.
How did you get it to work as a system app?
Had to extract the library file from the wifi tether apk and add it to the system/lib folder, then just put the apk in the system/app folder, and viola!
I got it from this site , Wyelkins . They look the same but are different links . Same download though , I think . lol
Downloads - android-wifi-tether - Wireless Tether for Root Users - Google Project Hosting
Under Change Device Profile , I selected Samsung Galaxy Indulge .
Under Change Setup Method , I selected Softap for Samsung (master).
They have fixed the bugs that were in the last app . I no longer need to reboot after using the TRUE WiFi HotSpot . AdHoc still works the way It always has , perfect !
Thats the one I included in my Rom, beta 11
Works like a charm doesn't it . I'm glad that they finally fixed the bugs .
I'm on Beta 6 because the later ones were causing problems getting WiFi running again. Are you saying Beta 11 finally lets WiFi work after you stop sharing?
I havent had any issues
I check that site all the time, so I have been on V3.1 Beta 11 for a while, I.just could not get it to run as a system app.
thanks biker. I like that site better since it shows the whole history
Went ahead and upgraded from beta 6 to beta 11.
Problem is not fixed. When I turn off hotspot, the phone will not reconnect to my WiFi router... in fact WiFi refuses to turn on at all. I have to reboot and then turn the phone's WiFi on.
I just double checked and it is beta 6 I included in my rom. Sorry, darkjedi, thought I had the updated version.
Looking for the "choke from a distance via the Force" button...
