Request device support or report bugs in the comments on http://www.arenddeboer.com/wifi

Features:
- Enable WiFi Ad Hoc mode (and keep infrastructure)
- Restore original settings
- Fix WiFi permission issues

Requires:
- Root Access (Superuser)
- BusyBox

Issues:
- No WiFi signal strength visible in taskbar

Please be aware this might potentially brick your device (I have tested the app vigorously on several roms and found no problems). I take of course no responsibility for any real or perceived damage...

Let me know if it works for you so I can improve the app.

Regards

FYI.....Task 13.1 works with adhoc wifi, out of the box!
Thank to the TASK team!

Not sure when they did starting this into the Rom, maybe from Pershoot's kernel?

But thanks anyway. Save me time to copy the WPAsupplicantfile over, which I carry with me from Galaxy tab 7 days!

Hehe, at least it was a nice way of learning root lated tasks in app development But it's still handy as the current kang ics roms do not ship with a modified wpa_supplicant.

Ad Hoc Wi-Fi can be a bit tricky to setup, can you create a connection with other devices? I also believe you can make only a single connection between ad hoc devices. So be sure the other device is not already connected.

It was fun working on this app, but is has proven to be difficult to make something that enables Ad Hoc on a wide spectrum of Android devices. Therefor I will no longer be updating the application and will remove the "report to developer" option. My next project: running Linux native on my Galaxy Tab P7510.
Starting point will be this thread by poitee -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1189251

Thanks for the feedback.
