I noticed that I experienced less hiccups using nand but I haven't tried xdandroid in over 6 months. I'm taking there has been some significant improvements.

WIFI Tether for Root only supports WEP, right? For some reason, my HP Touchpad running ICS is more friendly with WPA2-protected networks.

I will look into trying xdandroid again

The built-in tethering app supports infrastructure networks. Most third party ones only do ad-hoc, which I don't think the Touchpad supports.

There was some new wifi tethering app on the market tho, the name is escaping me... 1 sec.

Not sure if this was it, but it might work - http://android-wifi-tether.googlecode.com/

However, I'm hoping there's some effort to get newer kernels to run on NAND. There's definitely benefits, wifi tethering being one of them.

Sounds familiar. I haven't tried it myself, does it work on our junk in infrastructure mode?

Ah, FoxFi does work in infra mode. When I enable the hotspot in FoxFi, it seems that the built-in android hotspot activates as well. This would be fine if disabling in FoxFi would disable the built-in hotspot. However, when I disable the FoxFi hotspot, the android hotspot active status message does not go away. Additionally, if I try to re-activate the FoxFi hotspot after deactivating I get an error. Also results in an eventual crash / SOD.

Ok, I'll try to post logs over the next few days.

By the way, do you guys use a widget to switch off 3G / mobile data sync? If so, could you direct me to the app? The built-in toggle widget only has enable / disable data sync. I'd prefer to have a one button widget that disables or enables 3G and the data sync in one go.

I've used both, and currently use the first one. (note they only turn off 3G but that pretty much turns off sync too )

As far as I know, such a widget is actually not possible because Android doesn't expose those settings to userspace. I use the 2G-3G OnOff one that JDog2pt0 linked (the second link) on my phone because I prefer to switch to 2G when I'm not actively using data, and all it does is open up the menu with the data options. (But the "data enabled" button is on the same menu.)

The first one actually turns the data on or off without opening up the menu. The second one opens the menu up and you turn the data on or off.
