General :: In KitKat WiFi And GPS Doesn't Turn Off Sometimes

Mar 13, 2014

Once you have turned on GPS, when you turn it off later, sometimes it doesn't really turn-off even if the quick setting tile says it is turned off.

[EXAMPLE]

I turned GPS on, opened Tinder, used it for few minutes, closed it and turned off GPS, removed Tinder from recent apps.

Next night, I see Tinder is the top battery consumer, with 1 day 9 hours of GPS use. GPS shows up as ON the entire time in the battery graph; while GPS tile is "off" in quick settings as well as locations services is also set to off.

[SCREENSHOTS]

I had seen exactly similar GPS hogging from Facebook and Maps too.

This exact same thing happens with Wi-Fi too. I had turned off Wi-Fi at night before going to sleep. But after returning from work the next day, I see in the battery graph that the Wi-Fi was on for the entire 17+ hours. And it still showed as "Off" in Quick settings tile and Wi-Fi settings page. The Wi-Fi definitely wasn't ON since as soon as I turned it on via QuickSetting tile, I got a flood of notifications. But there was considerable amount of battery drain, which is unusual when everything is off. Makes me think that the Wi-Fi was in fact ON. So, when I had turned Wi-Fi off at night, the phone only disconnected from the hotspot but still remained on.

[DEVICES]

Nexus 5 - running stock 4.4.2 with Xposed and latest Linaro.
Galaxy Nexus - running AOKP 4.4.2 nightly with Franco; no xposed.

[BUG TRACKER]
Issue #64998 - The GPS bug was already reported by someone else in the Android project bug tracker. But it has low priority there and doesn't look like it will get addressed anytime soon.

General :: Droid - Tethering Without Stopping WiFi?

Mar 4, 2013

In my apartment, the router is in another room, and it'd be a massive, ugly-looking to run a 100-foot wire from my room to out there. As a result, I've been using wireless routers for my internet, and they haven't been working for crap. I can tether my 4G LTE to my PC and use my Droid internet just fine, but I don't want to do that because of the data cap. I want to tether my Droid and have it connect to my home internet, basically using it as a wireless router to access my home connection, not the Verizon network, and share it with my PC.

But if you turn tethering on, it turns Wi-Fi off. What gives? Is there a way to tether my Droid without disabling Wi-Fi so I can use my tethered Droid to pick up my home wireless connection, so I don't have to worry about exceeding the data cap?

General :: WiFi Tethering With OpenVPN For Android

Nov 15, 2012

Download a terminal client, e.g. ConnectBot and connect to your local shell.Enter `su` to become root. (Double check with whoami afterwards). Enable wifi tethering and ensure your data connection is working (connect to VPN)

Run `netcfg` and note your interface names (typically tun0 and wlan0 (ignore m.wlan0 or similar, only take the one with a real mac address), as is on my SGSII)..Double check the subnet for your wlan0 device and enter the following commands:

iptables -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.43.0/24 -j MASQUERADE -t nat
(setup a postrouting entry for the tethered devices subnet, implementing NAT)
iptables -A FORWARD -j ACCEPT -i wlan0 -o tun0
forward packets from tethered devices across the tunnel
iptables -A FORWARD -j ACCEPT -i tun0 -o wlan0
forward packets from the tunnel to the tethered devices

Note, because you are using NAT, you will need to configure port forwards on your Android device to be able to run servers etc on tethered devices. Unlikely you'll need to worry about that though. Feedback if it worked or not. Posting this now from my home IP, OpenVPN for Android and these iptable rules!

General :: Android WiFi Hotspots Without Tethering

Dec 24, 2012

I want to host an INFRASTRUCTURE (not AD-HOC), otherwise known as a SoftAP (Access point) on wifi. This is possible with many applications, but they all want to use a mobile data connection. Is there any application that allows you to host a SoftAP WITHOUT a 2G/3G/4G connection? This is just for playing over WIFI between a samsung galaxy s3 and an older android 2.1 tablet. These cannot see AdHoc networks.

Anyways, I'm interested in any application that allows hosting of an infrastructure WiFi network without tethering to just host a wireless lan point.

General :: WiFi Tethering App With User Data Monitor

Jan 10, 2012

I have been looking for an application which is a more powerful version of the WiFi Tethering already included in a phone.

I have been looking for an application on Xda, Google, and the Marketplace but none I have found provides me with the ability to see individual users (or Mac addresses) data usage.

First a little background on what I am trying to achieve.I regularly provide a WiFi router for people with IPods and devices with wireless but no internet connection who need internet access to update games / browse the internet, and whilst my FUP at 500mb is quite low, I rarely use more than 20mb in a month so it doesn't bother me as beyond 500mb the connection is just limited to text and images (downloads and internet streaming are disabled after 500mb) which is all that I need.

However when my FUP has been exceeded alot of devices cant do the small updates this is no good when games or apps require it (as I have seen a couple even stop working till updates are completed) due to the connection being restricted. I have usually tracked it down to an over enthusiastic user who is watching videos on youtube, which has wiped out 100mb of my usage within 2 minutes on one occasion.

I am running both Android and Windows Mobile on my HD2, Whilst the built in "Portable Hotspot" of Android is good as it lets me restrict the number of users and see the Mac address of connected clients, it doesnt let me monitor their usage and then let me disconnect individual users them from the connection.Whilst im sure there is apps for overall phone usage I am looking to monitor the individual devices usage as with 3-5 devices it is hard to distinct between legitimate usage and constant heavy usage.

Is there any Wifi Tethering app to let me do this?

To summarize:

Wifi Tethering App
Android / Windows Mobile
Shows Client Usage
MAC filtering (or alternatives which allow individual devices to be disconnected)

General :: Galaxy Tab - WiFi Hotspot / Tethering Suddenly Not Connect To Internet

Jan 10, 2013

I've had a Galaxy Tab for 2 years, and used it, very successfully, as a wifi hotspot from May until July this year, when my laptop was suddenly not able to connect to the internet via the hotspot. It connected just fine to the Tab, and has no problems on my home wifi. The Tab was still able to connect to the internet normally, with no apparent problems.

I fiddled about a bit and thought perhaps it was a hardware problem, so bought a seconhand Nexus S. That has been working fine until yesterday, when the exact same thing has happened - the laptop can connect fine to the Nexus, but says there is no internet connection. The Nexus itself is connecting just fine.

I'm in the UK - my carrier is Three (Hutchinson).

General :: Rooted Nexus 7 WiFi (2012) Won't Boot After Attempted Kitkat 4.4 Update

Nov 27, 2013

I am trying to get a friends Nexus 7 up and running. I recently rooted it and installed the custom recovery using my Mac with this guide while the tablet was on 4.3. All was well, but then my friend was given the option to install the 4.4 Kitkat update. After the update, the tablet has been unable to boot - it simply hangs at the startup animation. I am able to enter the recovery boot loader, and enter options to restore from a .zip, however I have no way of accessing the tablet's memory from my computer to put the original operating system back on it- although I think it could be done from Terminal, I am not well versed in command prompts.

General :: WiFi Won't Turn On?

Aug 15, 2013

I have a problem with my nexus 7. A couple of days ago the wifi connection simply stopped working. I just could not turn it on. The wifi icon did not get blue, like it should when it's turned on, and it wouldnt even search for available networks.

So, i thought this might be caused by some bug or software problem and decided to do a factory reset on my nexus 7. The problem is, that did not solve the wifi problem and now i can't even use my device anymore, as it requires a connection for setup.

Does that mean that the problem is caused by hardware malfunction? I'm not very experienced with all the android hacking or installing a CFW, or whatever.

General :: LG-E400 WiFi Will Not Turn On?

Feb 18, 2013

LG-E400 one week ago. The phone is running v2.3.6. It is running on Spain's tuenti network and up until two days ago it was running fine in every way. The problem now is that it will not allow 'turn on' the wifi, let alone connect or use it. When I check the 'Turn on Wi-Fi' box in Settings>Wireless & networks it tells me that it is turning on, and on occasion tells me that it is turned on, but invariably it 'turns off' within 10 seconds or less. When I turn on wifi using the icon int he pull down menu it likewise changes colour to signify that it is on, but turns off of its own accord within a few seconds. The wifi had worked perfectly until a few days ago, and nothing has changed since that time to the best of my knowledge. It is a new phone, has been used carefully, and there have been no other issues with it.

General :: Stock Android 4.3 - WiFi Will Not Turn On

Dec 25, 2013

I've a problem with my stock Galaxy S4 in that since a firmware update (4.2.2.2 to 4.3) I cannot for the life of me get the WiFi to turn on.I've been having this problem for almost a week even though the update occurred quite sometime before that. I've tried puling the battery but it didn't have any effect. Tried putting the phone into Recovery Mode, sadly I can't even get that to work (Vol. up, Home and Power together). All that happens is the tiny tiny blue text of "Recovery Mode" appears, vanishes upon button release, then the phone proceeds to boot normally. No recovery mode at all. Eventually I decided to to a Factory Reset in the vain hope it would reslove the problem. All I've succeeded in doing is losing all my data (yes it was backed up but to restore the backup I need to have WiFi turned on!)

N.B After downloading Kies3 I've been able to update with latest firmware.....and I can now turn on my WiFi!! WOOP!! About bloody time too!

N.B.2 Scrub that last comment. After being able to turn Wifi on and scan for signal, it allowed me to enter the password for my home WiFi then I restarted the device only to find that again the Wifi option on the phone will not turn on.
