This is the stupidest phone I have ever purchased probably, I am glad it was about $30 - at $30 I am using it this week maybe next then ditching it. So if I manage to get ANYWHERE with the phone past being able to root it already, I will post what I helpful stuff I can, before I move to the next phone. For the life of me I would love to know why Kyocera has locked the bootloaders of their $30 phones - the USD can't be that spectacular to the Yen that it matters to lock a sub $50 phone down? If fact, I would even suggest it's more profitable to have me buy another P.O.S Kyocera phone - which I would if I knew it had an UNLOCKED bootloader - at the $30 price point, I'm happy to flash it till it's bricked probably, and go get another one... NOTE: THIS WILL 100% WORK FOR YOU AND YOU WILL NOT GET STUCK IN ADHOC MODE IF YOU FOLLOW THIS EXACTLY. Ok, well so I am almost certain you can't get this to work unless you've gotten root first. It *could* work without root but I've never attempted to find out? Assume you need it. Once you are successfully rooted do the following and don't deviate from what I say here: 1. Download the latest Treve WIFI APK - here 2. You need to open the Wifi app, DO NOT START tethering or click the wifi symbol AT ALL on the initial launch. First, context/menu click to get the menu up, go to settings and set the settings to the following. You MUST set the FIRST setting I put here at the top of the list FIRST. You WONT see a couple of these options in the settings menu UNLESS you set the device-profile FIRST!!!!!!!!! Device-Profile - Generic ICS/JB wlan0 AGAIN SET THIS FIRST Setup Method - Auto Fallback Tether - YES Send Netd Max Client - YES Enable Wifi encryption - YES WiFi Driver Reload - YES (don't check the second one though) Keep Alive / Connection Check - YES MSS Clamping - YES Routing fix - YES Exit settings, then turn the hotspot on for the first time. It will install the binaries and config, and should start for you without any errors. By default the app gives your hotspot an SSID AndroidTether and pw of abcdefghijklm. Let me know how this works guys.
