Hi All,Sorry for my English.:pI am very happy that I can use my Apad to surf internet anywhere through my iPhone MyWi apps (jailbroken iphone, download from cydia)I search this forum everyday to find the solution, finally I found the solution here today (from EKEN M001 section), but Apad is more simple. Here are the solution I followed. 1. Get the /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf (i use Droid Explorer for Windows XP) 2. Use text editor to open this file. (I use Wordpad) 3. Add the highlighted string in this file: (It will look sth like this...)---------------------------------------------------------ctrl_interface=/data/system/wpa_supplicantctrl_interface_group=1000update_config=1eapol_version=1 <--------------- Add thisap_scan=2 <---------------------- Add thisnetwork={ ssid=MyWi_iPhone" <--------------Your Wifi name scan_ssid=1 <------------Add this key_mgmt=NONE wep_key0=1234567800 <------- Wifi password mode=1 priority=1}network={ ssid="Linksys" key_mgmt=NONE .......----------------------------------------------------4. Replace this file to /data/misc/wifi/5. Reboot your apad 6. DONE! So it is very simple
just add 3 strings
Note: When I add other wifi connection in Apad, the 2 strings will be deleted.( eapol_version=1 and ap_scan=2 ) I have to pre-add in wpa_supplicant.conf and copy to apad again.Thanks for the [URL="http://www.slatedroid.com/vbulletin/entry.php?43-HOW-TO-Adhoc]guide[/URL] from EKEN M001 thread.For your referene:My Apad is Aluminum Version (Red led)Firmware : Official HiApad ROM 0706

It always works using usb. But I also have another phone running Android. Anyone know how to create adhoc. We can add it to the first post. Thank you.Sent from my aPad using Tapatalk
Any WiFi tether app will work, I use Wireless Tether for Root Users as well a aNetShare on my HTC Magic both work like a champ with my laptop. Once I get my new aPad I can test it with that.

Hi Alangor,Thanks a million for this post. I tried it on my APAD and it worked so well on my first attempt that I couldnt believe it for some time.I even went and switched off my home wifi router to confirm that it wasnt using that connection!Then I browsed to whatismyip.com on my APAD browser and confirmed that my APAD was indeed using my phone gprs.I am using APAD with Rockchip with the Camera, and I am running Rogerbraun 5.1 ROMAnd my phone is an HTC Dream running Android 2.1 - through Cyanogen ROM 5.0.8 and I am using an app called Barnacle Wifi Tether on the phone to share the connection.I'll try to make a small android app for my APAD that allows me to quickly swap between the original and ad-hoc versions of the wpa_supplicant.conf file. BTW, you dont have to reboot the phone when you switch to the ad-hoc or original file, just disable wifi and enable it again.Update: I finally did make the app to enable quick and easy swtiching between adhoc and infrastructure modes. It can be downloaded from www.shura.in/adhocable.zip . Please search for "adhocable" on slatedroid for instructions on using it.

Well done to everyone who's got this working......Unfortunately I have followed the above to the T and I cannot get my Nokia 5800 (running JoikuSpot light) to connect with my device.I even copied and pasted it over the wpa_supplicant file (changing the relevant data) and nada :(It is still seeing the device as an IBSS device and wont allow connections. So IF any Nokia users have managed to get this working with their devices can you post up your workarounds please as I'd like to see what I am doing wrong........Although, in my defense, I have been staring at coding (work) all day and all I can see are numbers and figures dancing around my head like fireflies in a moonlight sonata......

Hi Guys, I'm trying to make an APAD app that allows us to easily switch between Adhoc mode and Normal wifi mode.Basically, the app will switch versions of the wpa_supplicant.conf file as outlined in this post.Problem is: I don't know how to request superuser permission for my app. My app can overwrite files on the /flash partition, but when I try to do it on the /data, it force closes due to permission problem.You know when you run an app like Market Enabler or Better Terminal Emulator Pro on the Apad, there's a popup that confirms granting of super user privilege to the app."The following application has requested super user access to the phone..."I need my app to be able to request this permission. HOW?I'm using rogerbraun 5.1 Custom ROM on my RK2808 APAD with cameraCAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE?My idea is to have the app go like this:1. On First Run: a. Create a copy of the current /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf and save it as /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.normal b. Create a new file at /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.adhoc with a user-defined SSID and key as outlined in this post2. When "Switch to Ad-hoc Mode" button is clicked: copy /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.normal as /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf3. When "Switch to Normal Mode" button is clicked: copy /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.adhoc as /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf4. When "Adhoc Settings" button is clicked: Overwrite file at /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf.adhoc with a user-defined SSID and key as outlined in this postSuggestions Welcome

Do we have root on this device? From what I can tell no.. I was able to do this and get it working easy enough with Droid Explorer. However was going to try to somehow keep a copy of it in the folder and keep copying it over when I needed it but can't seem to get a workable solution. Was trying to use "Root Explorer" another android app which will ask for SU and allow you to explore system folders etc but it keeps saying does not have SU access even when I tell it yes etc which makes me believe I don't have root here I'm guessing
but I'm still relatively new to this android thing so not sure..

My APAD has Rockchip with the Camera (Red LED) and Rogerbraun Rom 5.1.I'm trying to insert the 3 string as per your instruction but I can't seem to find step 1.1. Get the /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf (i use Droid Explorer for Windows XP)Instead my "wpa_supplicant.conf" is found in /etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf. Is that the correct one?I open up the file and it only show:ctrl_interface=/data/system/wpa_supplicantctrl_interface_group=1000update_config=1Can you please advise.Thank you in advance.
