    This is the Mobile Hotspot app provided by Verizon to the Palm Pre Plus

    I got it working. You'd think there should be a way to always keep forwarding on in the /etc/event.d for ryan*freetetherd and not have to go into the freetether app at all. Is there an argument to provide or a config file to always keep on?

    i have Mytether and use it everyday for hours at a time. Well to double check i called Sprint Care. Without saying why i wanted to know if my plan had a data limit like the air cards. He said if your on "the simply everything plan" you do not have a limit on data, Only the air cards have the 5GB limit. so i asked "sooo if i somehow used over 70 GB of data on my phone I won't be charged anything other then my regular monthly bill?" he said correct. i told him thankyou and have a nice day.
    Buddie go right ahead and tether over 70gb and watch what happens. Yes sprint says data is unlimited for data usage on the phone we know this. And we all know about 5GB limit for air cards.

    This is why I said mythical limit. Because people have gone over a mythical limit and been contacted about it by sprint in the past.

    But if you think burning up 10-20GB's a month and sprint will be fine with it go ahead. Don't come back here complaining if they charge you or end your contract. It has happened in the past.

    Does the Pre retain internet access when you turn on tethering with the mifi app?

    I wonder if MyTether needs to be uninstalled, and if/so what's the script for that...

    You uninstall (the paid version of) MyTether using the same Windows installer program that you used to install it with. (I'm not sure what you do on other platforms.)
    I'm both super! ... and a doer!

    You don't need to uninstall MyTether but you do need to uninstall the MyTether patch.

    I believe it's possible to modify PmNetConfigManager to permanently turn on IP forwarding similarly to this post:

    http://forums.precentral.net/web-os-...ml#post1733941

    Note that the post says PmConnectionManager, but that's what the file used to be called, now it's PmNetConfigManager.

    I haven't tried it myself, but I believe it should make it work without needing anything else installed.

    Check that your phone has connection...

    Sometimes on mine, when I start Mobile HotSpot my EvDO resets.... and that's when I receive the warning (when my phone is offline).... after it gets back online i can surf from my laptop... sometimes it takes about 10 seconds (10 seconds after my phone is online)

    But sooometimes, not always :P

    EDIT: I thought This worked

    Edited /usr/bin/PmNetConfigManager

    Changed
    Disabling IP Forwarding^@0

    To
    Disabling IP Forwarding^@1

    Uninstalled freeTether, rebooted phone, turned on Mobile HotSpot and everything works!

    I tried to just use WebOS QI to do this, but you have to stop the PmNetConfigManager service first in order to overwrite the file. Did that through the terminal. So kind of convoluted, but it worked.

    would you kindly attach that file, or i guess PM it to me? I looked at editing that file, and didn't see any easy way to do it through vi in the terminal....

    Well I'd rather not distribute Palm's code

    EDIT: hmmmm something is up. now i'm unable to get any pages to load. but no errors connecting or messages about contacting sprint. Need to see what is happening.

    EDIT 2: tinkered around with the 'enabling ip forwarding' value but that doesn't fix it either. might have to leave this in more capable hands...





    I used WebOS Quick Install > Tools > Receive File

    File location is /usr/bin/PmNetConfigManager
    ___

    Then opened the file on my desktop and edited the following and saved.

    Disabling IP Forwarding^@0

    To

    Disabling IP Forwarding^@1
    ___

    Used the Terminal app on the Pre and entered the following:

    mount -o remount,rw /
    cd /usr/bin
    stop PmNetConfigManager


    You should see confirmation that the service stopped.
    Leave Terminal open.
    ___

    Again in WebOS Quick Install > Tools > Send File

    Send the edited PmNetConfigManager from your desktop to /usr/bin/
    ___

    Back in Terminal, do the following:

    start PmNetConfigManager
    mount -o remount,ro /

    ___

    That should do it.

    Notepad++, but any basic text editor should do it.

    Still not able to get it working completely. I can connect fine, no errors, get an ip address, but when I go to ping a site from my laptop it times out.

    It does however return the ip address of the site i'm trying to ping.

    Grr.

    Stick with freeTether + Mobile HotSpot until someone figures out how to get this other method working.

    In the future, how can i uninstall these IPK files?

    My expertise so far in installing patches is only for those available in preware!
