The patch below modifies the wpa_supplicant code in the external/wpa_supplicant AOSP repo to make ad-hoc networks appear as regular APs with a (*) prefix.
* removes the [IBSS] flag from scan results,
* masquerades and demasquerades ad-hoc ssid with (*) prefix
* sets mode 1 (ad-hoc) if the ssid is for IBSS
* permits the supplicant to select an IBSS when associating to a given ssid
Downloaded and will have a try. It will be great if it works. Thanks.
The hero can detect the ad-hoc mode with a (*)before the name. It can be connected but can't access the internet. My laptop can access internet through this ad-hoc wifi. Didn't know why?
It works! Beautiful. I used my old G1 to make an ad-hoc wireless network and my Desire saw it right away and connected without any problem. See my signature for the ROM I'm using (if it really matters).
The patch didn't work for me at first. I got "Error" while trying to turn my wi-fi on.
But when I restored the original /system/etc/wifi/tiwlan.ini and /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf back in the phone, it started detecting ad-hoc networks.
So the patch worked after all.
Did not work after I rebooted my phone.
