Will there ever be a possibilty that someone can cook up a rom that will let the cdma hero run the a81-e and have internet anywhere that we go with our phones. I know trhat it has something to do with ad-hoc but I was wondering if this option is even possible. Or is there a phone out right now that will let us do this.

Just so you know - you are not alone. I have a Hero CDMA and with wifi tether running on Froyo. The A81E does not see the AP. No clue as to why.

ummm.... the replies were VERY helpful and told you EXACTLY what to do to get the a81e/MIDnite/whatever to see the access point. you just need to do a little work yourself and SEARCH adhoc in the forum.

Thanks, just got my A81E today, gonna check this out later. Might be a good idea to create a sticky thread with links or How-Tos to common things like this, if one doesn't already exist. I'm new here though.

I searched for adhoc on the forum and there are so many instructions but none of them I saw specifically refers to CDMA Hero. Can you post a link? Thanks.
After you root your Hero and A81-E and install the Wireless Tether app on the Hero, follow the instructions here - http://www.slatedroi...-adhoc-on-a81e/ . I have a CDMA Hero and it works fine. Post if you run into issues.

Edit:
I just came across this: http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/10549-how-to-enabling-adhoc-on-a81e/page__view__findpost__p__133569 . Does anyone have the file referenced? I guess it got lost when the forum was migrated months ago.

Thanks for the link, but I think we misunderstood each other. I'm actually looking for ways to tether wifi from my CDMA Hero on AP (infrastructure) mode rather than ad-hoc mode. This is because my other mobile device does not detect ad-hoc hot spots. Have you seen any solutions? Sorry for the confusion.
