    I just got the Vmos app today and I have been playing with it, but there are are still a lot of limitations to it.

    First one is, I can't use the WiFi function in Vmos to connect to a WiFi network

    Then secondly, I installed terminal on the Vmos and the most basic common which is ifconfig, doesn't display any result when I type it on the terminal installed in the Vmos.

    I installed WiFi Kill app and it doesn't work on the device.

    I Installed Zanti, and it doesn't scan for all the devices connected to my network. It only sees my router and nothing more. Not even the host android device on which it is installed..

    Anyone with ideas on how I can tweak or solve some of this or just uninstall it and root my phone so I can do the things I want to do conveniently

    Overall the app is cool and quite stable. But for a guy like me who would wanna play with all the tools on my field on my device, the limitations are just too much.

    I was expecting the full functionality of VMware on my android

    yeah i saw vmos here a few times. never tried it. i do not see the need to use it. all it is is a virtual machine that lets you run android on an android device.....seems kind of redundant don't you think? it is far better to root your phone to get a better experience then what vmos offers.
    if you read their vmos faq page, there are so many limitations to vmos that it just does not seem practical to me. i'm not exactly sure what you were expecting.

    What WiFi function in Vmos?

    The Vmos app and the virtual Android system it runs, has no control over the host Android system's WiFi settings.
    Unlike Vmos, which just runs its own virtual Android system, VMware is intended to run various guest OSs on a host computer. And it can be configured to provide different virtual hardware to suit the guest OS it's running, like Linux, BSD, Wndows, etc. However it's not controlling and configuring the host OS and computer's own hardware.
