    I have a rooted BLU R1 HD and I'm trying to let more than eight people connect to my hotspot, what should I do? I don't have a computer available to do it through that, and I've tried editing hostapd.conf but the changes don't stick on reboot and don't apply. Thanks

    So I copied hostapd.conf, changed the 8 to 15 in the copy, and swapped the original and the copy in TWRP. The change stuck, but the hotspot wouldn't start at all after that, so I put back the original file. What now?
