    Hello i just wanted to know if you could put a link to your video. I followed your instruction and it worked. A video would be more a good visual tho.

    Thank you very much

    What did you look for in the system/bin/.. i couldn't find the hotspad file it mentioned in the post.
  7. Turtle

    Turtle Lurker

    I left the file alone because i did know what permissions i was looking for but you are going to need to find that file during the step with the android tuner.

    Follow the instructions. The file System/bin/hostapd needs to be killed with the android tuner. And i setup and ran the wifi app after i killed the System/bin/hostapd with the android tuner.You need to tap the "kernal" button on the bottom of the android tuner so it can show you the file. Its working so far for me. Hopefully it works for you.

    @@ turtle.. thks for clarifying tha for me sorry ihav been travelingfor the holydays and been occupied.

    the reason u tweak permissions its so when u kill hotspod in A.T. and it comes back up will run with the permissions of A.T and let ur computer or any other device connect.. so it wont stay suck in identifying ur device n grant authorizations. im still working in does files becus when hotspod is awakened it wakes up other file in System/bin/ ... im still trying to find software to be able to read does file to see how they connect together

    Is there a way to freeze the System/bin/hostapd file? or us it necessary to have it wake up every time i try to tether?

    Yes it needs to be awake. Ones u authorize. access control. It wll safe ur identity. It may take longer if u leave it running and not killed. It.
    Hotshot is use for wifi driver,NFC, Bluetooth drive etc,etc. Thats what im trying to figured out. Whish script. Attached them together. Thats why we can not use the wifi encryption. On wifitether app

    Open A.T TASK find System/bin/hotspad click on it and KILL?

    I have a MetroPCS Optimus F6 unlocked to T-Mobile and rooted.

    When I try changing permissions on hostapd I get an error that says, "Changing permissions was not successful. Please note that some file systems do not allow permission changes." I am using "Root Browser" by JRummy Apps. How do I get access to change those permissions?
  26. cal1st0

    cal1st0 Lurker

    UPDATE: After installing Android Tuner Free I accessed the hostapd file from AT's (root) Explorer and was able to check the Execute permissions but it didn't show the checkboxes for Set UID /GID / Stick. However, I do have wifi tether working without those. I am writing this from my desktop connected to wifi from my F6!
