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)?
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?
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.
Huawei E3131 modem is working as a router which has an IP address 192.168.1.1 and as the DHCP server, it gives an IP automatically to the PC and connects to 3G internet without installing any drivers or any software.
How to use this 3G modem on an Android tablet or phone?
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 a work phone with bluetooth and 3G internet capiblity that I don't pay for but the phone SUCKS! I have my personal Sprint Hero rooted and flashed to Pageplus. I would like to tether my Hero to the work phone thru bluetooth and use the 3G internet from the work phone.
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.
My desk at work is basically in a cellular dead zone. No Wi-Fi either... But I was wondering, I have a brand new Mac Pro with bluetooth capability and AirPort (and USB, of course). Is there a way that I could have my Droid 2 connect to my Mac and use its network connection to access the interwebs? I'm not worried about making calls...
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.
Got it to work over usb but can't seem to figure it out how to work over bluetooth. I can find my phone under devices but it has nothing listed under device function or bluetooth services. I was able to send my phone a file from my computer via bluetooth. My phone also says under bluetooth devices it's paired but not conectected to my computer. I'm running windows 7.
I am having issues getting the 2 wifi tethering programs to work correctly. I just rooted for the firstt time today. Both programs start up correctly and allow me to enable to wifi tethering but I can't get any device to see the wifi connection they are creating. I have tried both scanning for the network and trying to manually connect to it by typing in the SSID but I can't get any device to see the network. I am using a Droid X with the official 2.2 update rooted.
Why does it seem to me that using my 54mbps wireless adapter with WIFI tether on my fascinate seems faster (and gets better speed tests) over connecting to USB2.0 over PDAnet? shouldn't USB connection be faster?
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.
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.
I´m 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.
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.
I need to know that if Reverse landscape (Changing phone direction in clockwise direction) is possible in android.If yes please give some pointers on that topic. Currently video playback is possible in normal landscape mode. Can I change that from applications side or it needs support from framework.
I am running on Android 4.0.4. Is there a way to activate Reverse USB tethering and WiFi hotspot at the same time? I want to give internet from my PC to phone, via usb internet. Then give internet to my friends via Android Wi-Fi hotspot
I'm using the geocoder in the android map api, this work relatively good, my problem though is that i want to be able to get a number of addresses near a geopoint ! I thought about calculating different geopoint near the a center geopoint, but what about the cost of calling the reverse geocoder multiple times etc.
I don't see anything about this change in the API differences report at http://developer.android.com/sdk/api_diff/8/changes.html. However when my Nexus One started running Android 2.2, the list of files created by the following code are now in reverse alphabetical order rather than alphabetical order (as they were with Android 2.1 and earlier, AFAIK):
The line "Arrays.sort(fn);" revives the alphabetical order of the list, but sorts are computationally expensive and AFAIK the explicit call to Arrays.sort() was unnecessary prior to Android 2.2.
In addition to seeing this order change on the Nexus One, it can be confirmed on the emulator running level 7 and level 8 AVDs.
I had my sd card partitioned for a2sd and just installed the new froyo v23. I've read that froyo doesn't work with an a2sd partitioned card. So i'm wondering how i reverse my a2sd card and get it back to normal. I have my card backed up on my computer and ready to go back to it.
I was informed of the new android update and the perks mentioned seemed pretty impressive. Upon installing the new update I regretted it instantly; the phone is slower, the layout is ugly and choppy unlike the sleek and smooth previous layout and the backup and restore is abysmal, all of my contacts are registered in the messaging (which also looks awful and is terribly confusing) but not in my contacts section. Is there anyway to reverse the upgrade, because I seriously dislike the new one. It is awful to put it bluntly.
I'm trying to make a HUD (heads up display) device for my car. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to mirror the screen so that it can be read on the windshield. Is there a way to do this without hardcoding it into the ROM?
If it needs to be in the ROM, where would this be changed?
I want to run tor on my phone and activate wireless tethering. Since I dont have an unlimited data plan I wanted to reverse teather my phone to my PC,so my phone acts like a router for masking traffic from my ps3 to the internet. If that doesn't work,I could set up Tor on my computer to transfer traffic from Android Tool to a foreign server.
Btw setting up proxy on my ps3 doesnt work for the store itself
