Android :: Reverse Tether Via Bluetooth PAN

Oct 12, 2010

We've been trying to reverse tether (using a SmartQ V5, android version 2.1) to another device that has an Internet connection we want to share. That is to say, the Android device is the client and needs to get access to the Internet through connecting to a Bluetooth PAN network.

We have so far been able to get root access on android, but have had no luck with bluetooth PAN. We found that bluetooth PAN isn't compiled natively in android (at least not in 2.1 or before), and to enable it you'd need to turn them on and compile the OS image yourself. Does this concur with others' understanding?

Has anyone had any luck in compiling an android OS or setting up PAN to do reverse-tethering with another device (say PC)?

Android :: Reverse Tether

Mar 24, 2010

I have a G1 and I now have an app named MapDroid BUT so slow to download the maps. If I could hook up my G1 to a computer at the internet cafe that has a ASDL connection it would go much faster AND I would be able to do something else beside watch the yellow bar slooooooowly move. I am not in the USA. One guy said the best way is buy a Bluetooth drive that looks like a flash drive. Plug it in the PC and my G1 should get internet. Not sure. I think files would work but not sure about internet. If the cable won't work then why should bluetooth?

Android :: Reverse Desktop Tether

Oct 12, 2010

I just got my first Android and love it after having used Win Mobile for years. However, there's one app I just can't seem to find.

I want something like MyMobiler (Windows Mobile - My Mobile)

Instead of accessing my PC desktop on my phone, I was able to FULLY access my phone desktop on my pc (i.e., I could completely operate my phone on my PC which allowed me to type and enter data faster and more accurately).

Does anyone know an app that'll do this (even a non-free app would be great).
I had grown so accustomed to using this application that I will now be lost if I can't find a suitable replacement.

General :: Reverse USB Tether For Nook Color

Jan 7, 2012

Right now I have tried a lot of options to get my Nook Color running CM7 to get internet access at work (buggy driver on B&N that doesn't work with our EAP settings), and none of my alternatives are good enough.

I was running my own access point from my computer but then the telecom guys told me to turn it off. Tried Bluetooth tether and that just doesn't work very well (it constantly drops connections).

So I want something seemingly very simple, but I can't find anything anywhere on how to do it. I want to plug my Nook into my computer and use that computer's internet connection. I imagine it can't be very difficult using ADB, but I can't find any information about it.

I have Arch Linux and Debian Linux at work.

General :: Bluetooth Reverse Tethering To Windows 7 PC?

Dec 14, 2012

How can I reverse tether my Android phones to my PC via Bluetooth? Is this even possible?

PC is running Windows 7 x64. Phone is an HTC HD2 running JellyBean AOSP from NAND. I know Wifi would be easiest, but this is a work PC and company policy is we are not allowed to run our own Wifi networks.

I managed to connect the HD2 to the PC via Bluetooth with a PAN network, it only worked when I turned on Internet Tethering on the phone. this makes the HD2 into the server and PC into the client so PC can use phone's internet connection. I need the reverse! I need HD2 to be the client, PC to be the server. I found a Bluetooth PAN client from the Play store, but it can't connect via PAN to the PC. I assume because the MS BT stack only has a PAN client and not server. Is there such a thing as a PAN server for PC? I've looked at Widcomm and Bluesoleil BT stacks, but neither specifically mentions having a PAN server.

I found this tutorial that sounds promising, using DUN instead of PAN: URL....It's for reverse tethering an Android device to another Android device. Looks like BlueVPN on the Android side will do what I want, be a DUN client. However, similar problem to PAN, I can't find a DUN server. It's apparently not built into the MS BT stack either.

Is it even possible to reverse tether an Android phone to PC over Bluetooth? Only other idea I can think of is to use an intermediate device as a bridge. USB reverse tether a phone to PC, and use phone's Bluetooth tethering abilities to tether my bluetooth phone to it.

HTC EVO 4G :: Wifi Tether Using Bluetooth

Nov 19, 2010

I have an evo4g and rooted it. I run 2.2 and a month old version of fresh or so.Anyway, just got a usb dongle at newegg for $7. I plugged it in and it connected my phone flawlessly for audio. Basically for audio all I do is toggle bluetooth on on the phone, then.. hit play and music is coming thru my computer speakers. That said - I can't seem to connect for bluetooth wifi. Is there a different driver for the phone that I need to d/l somewhere? Going to the windows 7 (I run win 7 ultimate) it says about my phone under the services tab:
BRCM Advanced Audio
Handsfree Telephony Gateway
Object Push (Obex)
This leads me to believe I need a different driver perhaps? When I go to "Join a Personal Area Network" there are no devices listed. I try to add device but it doesn't find my phone.I know this is kinda complicated so if you dont understand my problem please ask for a clarification.

HTC EVO 4G :: Phone As Modem Tether Vs Wifi Tether

Jul 28, 2010

When connecting my Evo to a computer, there is an "Internet Sharing" option. I am curious to know, does this cost extra monthly? I know the wifi tether is the extra $30 a month, but will this charge me the same?

I only have interest in rooting my phone if it's the only way to share internet with my Netbook. Wifi isn't all that important to me, and seeing as I've completely and utterly failed at doing the Unrevoked method for rooting... I'm hoping I won't actually have to root my phone after all.

Android :: Reverse Geocoding In App

Oct 17, 2010

I am trying to Reverse GeoCode current Lat/Long data to just Admin Area and Sub Admin Area using the Geocoder class.

I am using the NETWORK_PROVIDER as the Location provider. Here is the code that I use and it works. The problem is sometimes it does not give me any location sometimes it does.

Android Manifest permissions I am using.


Here is the rest of the code that does give me correct location from time to time but nothing at other times.


Are there restrictions with the network providers how frequently you can request location data?

How can I make sure that everytime its run this can give me valid location data.

Thanks in advance for any insight into this.

PS: I have run this code on my real device running Froyo 2.2 (Verizon Wireless). Target API Level 8.

This is what I got from my debugging.

Latitude Longitude is always fetched but the getFromLocation often returns null for the latitude longitude data passed to it. So what should be the workaround? May be pass the Lat/Long info to Google Maps API for reverse geocoding. Will be glad to receive any input.

I find that geocoder apis particularly getFromLocation using Lat and Lnt is not very reliable. I am noticing this behavior more after I upgraded to android 2.2 on my Droid. I get an invalid argument exception for Latitude. The funny thing it is not consistent in this behavior.

Android :: Emulator 2.1 & 2.2 Reverse Geocoding Not Available

May 30, 2010

I have been unable to get reverse geocoding wokring under either 2.1 or 2.2 on the emulators. Tested on both mac/eclipse & ubuntu/eclipse.

I am sending manual decimal coordinates via DDMS and have ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION & INTERNET permissions in my manifest file.

On an actual phone (HTC Desire) it functions properly.


The following code throws the exception below


I have been looking for docs on this and can find very little information on the above to confirm whether it should or should not work.

Android :: StartLayoutAnimation In Reverse Order

Aug 18, 2010

Im doing a layout animation on my listview where I fade the list elements into view using a LayoutAnimation with android:animationOrder="normal". It works perfectly fine and the elements are faded into view in top-to-bottom order. However, if I trigger a layout animation twice (eg call startLayoutAnimation before the list view has finished animating its views), the listview performs the new layout animation in reverse order; bottom-to-top.

Android :: Dex File Be Reverse Engineered?

Dec 24, 2009

I was wondering how safe it is for my apk to be uploaded without being obfuscated. I am kindof in a hurry to upload it on the market and I was thinking of uploading it unobfuscated. I am guessing this is probably how most of the apps are uploaded anyway but I would like to hear people's opinions on this. I haven't searched online for existence of tools that reverse engineer the .dex file the android project creates.

General :: Android Tablet Reverse Tethering?

Jan 26, 2012

I have a [rooted] novo 7 Basic (running android 3.2) that I need to reverse tether to an ubuntu machine - through USB

Because this tablet (and other tablets) are not 'phones' - they don't have a native tethering option (which is required for most of the reverse tethering examples that are out there)

I can work with the device through adb - tried setting up a tunnel but I can't get any usb interface to show up with ifconfig

Maybe there is a way to just do it through abd with some ubuntu network configuration?
