Motorola Droid X :: Way To Install 3g Hotspot App?

Oct 22, 2010

Has anyone else using the "AOSP" roms like RubiX and Fission gotten the 3g mobile hotspot app (from verizon) to work. I can't seem to get it installed even though it's in the /system/app folder.

HTC Incredible :: Hotspot Froyo Custom Install

Aug 30, 2010

I am a new member here, just joined a few days ago. I've had my HTC Incredible (Verizon) for about 2-3 weeks and so far I love it. I've been reading these forums every day, multiple times a day ever since I joined here a few days ago, but haven't posted anything yet. I remember the first day I joined here I saw a thread that was discussing a custom Froyo ROM that you could install on your phone that would NOT root your phone. However, I also saw one that allowed free hotspot tethering, that didn't accrue any charges from Verizon Wireless, unless I am mistaken, but I beleive I did read that someone where on here. I'm not looking for someone to walk me through how to install, or root the phone or anything like that, I understand all the inns and outs of doing that.....I provide PC technical support for a living, working on my B.S. degree in Computer Science, so I'm pretty fluent in the technical aspects of working the phone and rooting and all of that, I was just trying to have someone point me in the right direction to the Foryo update.zip/rom that you could install on your phone that would do the following two options:1. I would prefer the version that doesn't root the phone, but instead just installs, if I have to end up rooting the phone that's fine, I would just prefer not to only because of possibly voiding the warranty, not because I'm afraid of screwing it up haha, I feel perfectly comfortable doing it if I must.2. I read one of these allowed free hotspot tethering and also got rid of Verizon's bloatware as well, I don't know if all of these are found all in one custom rom, but if they are that would be great if you could point me in the direction where I can download it at.

Motorola Droid X :: 3G Hotspot Charges

Nov 24, 2010

If I did not get the monthly Hotspot charge when i signed up and did use the hotspot for an emergency connection, what is Verizons rate on that? All I can find on their site is what the per MB charge after the %GB you get with the monthly hotspot plan.

Once I get more comfortable with it, I'll root and would not have this worry. But for now, I'd like to know what it would cost as a pay per use charge?

Motorola Droid X :: Is Mobile Hotspot Free Now?

Sep 22, 2010

I seem to remember the first time I opened the hotspot app on my phone it said it costs 20 dollars a month and then closed. I heard the update refreshed it somehow so I was just glancing around and decided to take a look. well after going through some settings it started, I immediately closed the app afraid I had charged 20 dollars but I am wandering if it still costs if they got rid of the notification that it costs, I thought you had to subscribe to it before you ran it so does that mean it's free now?

Motorola Droid :: WiFi Hotspot In 2.2 - App To Upgrade

Aug 23, 2010

I was under the impression that when Android 2.2 was released and upgraded the Droid there would be an included WiFi Tether app to create a mobile hotspot on the device. However, since I received the update, I've yet to be able to find the app.

Was there not an included app in the upgrade?

Is there an app in the Market that will suffice that will not require the Droid to be rooted?

Is a rooted Droid with Android 2.2 the only way to have a WiFi Tether app run successfully on the Droid?

Motorola Droid X :: 3G Mobile Hotspot & Email Sync

Nov 10, 2010

I turn the thing on so that I can connect my computer to the internet then upon turning it off, my phone wont send emails thru my yahoo account or sometimes it wont send them thru my yahoo or my exchange email. They just sit in my outbox. Then I can't open them again to save them to be sent later, I only have the option of deleting them. I pull out my battery and then most of the time its all better but I shouldnt have to be doing this. I am starting to have flashbacks of my Blackberry Storm and pulling the battery every 10 minutes. Why is this happening and how can I fix it? I place this task at the feet of all who possess the knowledge...step forth and share with me your wisdom!

Motorola Droid :: Wireless Tether - Mobile Hotspot

Sep 9, 2010

I feel like I have done enough reading on knowing how to preform the root on my phone, but I am just curious as to how I get different features like wireless tether, or any tether for that matter, without having to download easytether or PDAnet. Is hot spot even available on our phones?

Do custom kernels have these features built in? If so, what is a good kernel to use with OMJ's post on rooting the droid without RSDlite?

I really just want my phone to act like it acts and look like it looks now, just have additional features and maybe overclock it a bit.

Motorola Droid :: Wireless Hotspot On Froyo W/o Custom Rom

Aug 7, 2010

I have a Droid running the recent Froyo update. I'm wondering if there is a way to root my phone and do something (install an app?) that will allow me to use the phone as a wifi hotspot without installing a custom rom? I'm not a super adventurous user (mostly concerned about speed/stability); I would just like to utilize this feature if possible.

If it isn't possible to do this without installing a custom rom, is there a rom available that makes minimal changes to the standard OS just to enable a few missing features like tethering and wifi hotspot?

Motorola Droid :: Android 2.2 - Turning Device Into Hotspot?

Aug 21, 2010

I downloaded and have been reading the Android 2.2 user's guide. I wanted to get a better idea about Froyo. Anyway, it says that the phone can tether to one computer [was doing that under 2.1] and also become a hot spot. But when I follow their directions, this is not possible on my phone. Read a little online and some are saying it is possible, while others are saying it is not. What is the answer? Is there an app that I need to have?

Motorola Droid :: Verizon Deletes Hotspot Feature

Aug 3, 2010

Verizon Wireless promised to deliver the Android 2.2 Froyo update to the Motorola Droid starting "this week." The update hasn't started rolling out yet, but InformationWeek has already learned some disappointing news about it.According to Verizon Wireless, two of the biggest features being introduced by Android 2.2 Froyo won't be included in the Droid update: tethering and Wi-Fi hotspot creation.It is possible that Verizon Wireless is purposely leaving these features out of the Droid to entice customers to buy the Droid X (which offers hotspot creation) or the unannounced but imminent Droid 2.

General :: VZW Droid Using T-Mobile Hotspot

Jul 19, 2012

I have a 4G Sonic T-mobile hotspot (hockey puck type of device) working fine tethered to my Desktop, working via Wifi to my laptop and my iPad. No issues there. I also have an original Moto Droid on the VZW network, rooted, but no mods.

The Droid connects via Wifi to my Home Network (a Linksys Wifi Router), and other WiFi networks when I'm on the road. However I can't get it to connect to the T-Mobile 4G Hotspot. I know that's crazy, thinking I might get 4g internet speed out of an old original Droid, but technically it should work right?

Basically the Droid sees the hotspot, connects for a split second then gets dropped/disconnected. Or it's a settings issue and despite trying a million different settings.

I'm wondering if there's something in either device, or perhaps both, that recognizes one is a VZW device, the other a T-Mobile device, and it keeps me from making the connection. what might be keeping these two devices from connecting?

Motorola Droid :: Rooted Droid Not Letting Install ROMs

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what's wrong. I've rooted my phone, 2.2 with Clockworkmod Recovery.

I've had some success with loading up the given ROMs in ROM Manager- but I'm trying to install Smoked Glass 8 or Ultimate Droid, and those are not working.
