    ok so i got an app from another user on an irc channel that was for usbnet and i have (attempted to) modded it to use ad-hoc sharing for use as a wifi tethering app.

    BUT...

    i can not get it to work.

    From my understanding reading forums here and over at predevwiki wifi must be turned off from webOS before you can run the app because of a command that wakes up the wificard behind the scenes. but thats where my troubles start.

    i dont know if my scripts are bad or if some other part of the app is incorrect, but i can't seem to find my mistake.

    I am very new at deving for this phone and i have little linux/java experience.

    Any help would be great.

    Hey just got back off vacation i should be able to help you out seeing that while i was gone they got CMD through javascript to work etc.... and with ad-hoc and masquerade it should get a webos app working asap after work.

    I just checked it out real quickly. Two things I found so far:

    1. The app has to be installed to /var/usr/palm/applications/ as it uses absolute paths to the scripts.
    2. My pre didnt have the super user paths setup so I had to add them to /etc/profile

    It's still not working, But its close.

    I believe there is already an app for wifi tethering in the main tethering thread.
    My Tether - version 2.1.0 now live. No patching, no ad-hoc, more features!

    Yes, but the existing app requires setting the ip address on the guest. (i.e. no dhcp)

    Cool - just saw that your app supports dhcp now.. will have to upgrade EDIT - but .. err.. that's usb only right? the wifi tethering is a must for those of us with multiple mobile gadgets

    I like your app interface a lot better than mine. Maybe we could merge them and make one app that allows both usb and wifi tethering depending on user preference.

    Would it be alright if I tried to blend the two?

    I'm already in the process of adding WiFi. The code to enable WiFi is no problem, i was just spending time re-factoring my code to support multiple views to have USB and WiFi separately. It's almost done, I'd say 2 hours of work left.

    My app also apparently works to enable tethering over bluetooth. You can just connect to your Pre via BT PAN and it tethers if you have my app enabled.
