HTC CM Wifi Internet Sharing

Thanks To Tom_Codon For Sharing the Package from his New Tom Topaz Rom.

I resized and compressed The Graphics for VGA and Compressed The Exe File.

So this looks to be Working Without any Dependencies, Please Give feedback so others know where it is or isn't working.

I know people want this, so Getting it out there was Prime Directive. (Not sitting on something that will be out in a month or two, keeping it just for myself in roms i cook, sharing it)

Share Your Internet Connection As A Wifi HotSpot, Thank you HTC for looking at what users want.


It is adviced to install this with the Topaz CommManager as its an add on to a newer version.Does Not have a Shortcut in Programs because it has a Control Panel >> Connections entry!

QVGA Version By wapvirus + HTC Sroll

OK guys, I’ve collected all reports with links to the original reports. I only collected error reports of not being able to see the ad-hoc network created by the phone, NOT problems resulting from the lack of HTC Scroll.

PLEASE, when you do report FAILURE, try making sure alternative solutions all explained in my dedicated article (http://www.smartphonemag.com/cms/blo...andset-a-modem ) (ICSControl, WalkingHotSpot or WMWifiRouter work. If they don’t, try installing kliptik’s ICS CAB http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=122 and re-test all the apps. It’s only when they do work but HTC’s app doesn’t that you should send a failure report. Also, Omnia users will want to try the CAB at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=186 . (The latter can only be installed on genuine Omnias and nothing else, it seems.) Of the three, I recommend the WMWifiRouter trial (at http://global.wmwifirouter.com/trial/ ) as it’s much easier to use / configure than ICSControl and WalkingHotSpot doesn’t have a trial.)

If you report SUCCESS, make sure you do try the internet connection before doing so. Simply being able to install and start the app isn’t sufficient – you’ll also need to see (and connect to) the ad-hoc network it creates.

Also, please clearly state in all your success / failure posts the phone model and the ROM version you use. If you use a cooked (and not stock) ROM, make sure you also list the name / version of the cooked ROM. Thanks!

There has been some posts in this thread, other threads and on other sites that got me a bit worried.
Especially a few comparisons between this HTC solution and Chainfireís
WMWifiRouter solution.
CM internet sharing is a very simple solution that we have little to no control over. Itís nice to see that HTC is forced to innovate because of good ideas from developers. After letting users wait years for just such a solution, that should have been added a long time ago. And because it wasnít added, a developer fills in the gap and makes the solution.
Looking at the response to Wifi sharing, it can be said that this is a much wanted and needed feature.
That said it is only logical that it has a market value.
Especially if it has more and better configuration options for some one that will actually NEED a solution like this.
XDA is not about getting everything for free, it is about understanding how things work and make them better and get them working on older devices.
And though not everyone might know this, but Chainfire is just the kind of developer that fills in the gaps that HTC refuses to fill, from working on Graphics drivers to releasing/opening GPS ports quicker and that nicely ported and Skinned Manila interface with CFC compression your probably looking at every day.
Yes getting stuff out there, that isnít supposed to be out there, can be fun, unless it creates a reason for people to start vent their opinions in unfashionable manners.
So if you really like Wifi Sharing and believe it is something you really need, maybe it would be good to consider Actually buying a solution that can be configured. (personally i don't need Wifi Sharing but i do need a good alarm so i don't mind couching up some money for that)
And if you just want to try out the HTC version, then have fun with it.
But donít go bitchin on someoneís hard work, or we will all find ourselves on a very boring XDA when thereís no one left to fill up the gaps HTC leaves behind.
I consider my enthusiasm to get CM internet Sharing out there a Fail towards someone I find has made more important contributions then mine to this forum, for that I am sorry.

Some Q & AFound in the Thread
Temp Placeholder Q & A

Q: In running the app there's a possible resizing issue since you can't flick or otherwise use the DPad to go down. Regardless, you can still connect but my PC and another phone did not find the network that was supposed to be available when shared.[/QUOTE]

A: Don't Flick scroll Just press hold ad the heig of hwere your Provider connecction is mentioned and scroll a little bit up to get the rest of the menu.
A: If your using another phone to connect, you can find the Connection in the regular Wifi connection screen under "Computer to Computer" Connections.

Q: There is no Shortcut in Programs.
A: Initially the App can by found under Start Menu >> Control Panel >> Connections.

Q: Do we need to turn on the wifi in the device where the program is running?
A: The app starts the Wifi by itself.

Q: My PC or Laptop is not seeing the SSID.
A: For the people having trouble seeing the network, make sure your pc displays adhoc connections and not just access points.

Q: I have no menubuttons on a HTC TP2 (german stock ROM). Any ideas?[/QUOTE]
A: This app has a 0409.mui so it either needs that Mui translated to 0407 or a translated version, for now it's just English.

Wil this work on a QWVGA, QVGA or Non HTC Device.
A: There have been some confirms and spotted ports to Samsungs, so it is possible to make these versions

Q: I cannot scroll in any way?
A: It might be your rom is missing HTC Scroll package cooked in.

Beta Cab attached to Try, (since i can't right now ATM)

It places both Shortcut in Control Panel and in Programs.

Starting from Programs is regular
Starting from Control panel, will keep backlight on during use of app.

It Needs Mortscript Support in rom or installed by:

Do not link directly to this as it's just a test version.

It installs fine and the initial screens are proper. In running the app there's a possible resizing issue since you can't flick or otherwise use the DPad to go down. Regardless, you can still connect but my PC and another phone did not find the network that was supposed to be available when shared. Any ideas? I'd love for this to work I can upload pics if needed.

Very cool! Just make a shortcut from the Windows file on the device and you are good to go. Works very well.
