[HOW-TO] Get wifi-tether working on Charge
Not sure if this has been discussed previously or not but if you would like to get wifi tethering working in infrastructure mode on the Charge follow the steps below. Some people are claiming that Verizon is monitoring 3rd party wifi tethering and will bill you for that usage. So use at your own risk.
1. Follow the steps here
to root your Stock EE4 image to root. I chose not to install one of the ROMs yet and I am using imnut's PBJT non-OC voodoo kernel.
2. Once you have root (verified by the Superuser app appearing in your Applications). Install android-wifi-tether 3.1-beta2. This app can be found here
(need to allow external sources).
3. Once installed open the Wireless Tether application and go to Settings. Change the device profile to "Samsung Fascinate" and you should be good to go from that point.
One thing I am uncertain of is this "hotspot_event_monitor" driver that is loaded. djp592 discusses a kernel mod here
that removes this driver but I could not find an explanation of what it does exactly. Anyone know?
