    Here is a quick and dirty way to block webOS updates:

    cd /usr/bin
    mount -o remount,rw /
    chmod -x UpdateDaemon or chmod +x UpdateDaemon (to turn on)
    mount -o remount,ro /
    killall UpdateDaemon


    Then reboot


    No more executing the update program.

    To reenable updates, you would do the opposite. Instead of chmod -x you'd do chmod +x, and the other commands stay the same.

    You can simply use the commandline option in the Tools menu of WebOS Quick Install.

    I got it working in significantly less than 4,000 commands, but was such a doofus that I didn't write them all down! Half of them were:

    tail /var/log/messages -or-
    tail /var/log/mobilehotspot*

    to figure out what services weren't loading or kept exiting with errors.

    I've already posted the bits and pieces that I remember on the other MHS thread here. The executive summary is that WebOS 1.3.5.x came with supporting service for MHS 1.03, and those services were removed or deactivated in WebOS 1.4.0. By going to my WebOS 1.3.5.1 backups and pulling out a handful of files, I was able to put everything (mobilehotspotd, PmNetConfigManager, and minidhcp among others) back into place so that MHS 1.03 could be re-installed from it's distribution package and run like it used to. My concern is that this type of downgrading of binaries is exactly what got the my tether folks into trouble from what I've heard, which may explain why their users had to endure broken cameras at one point. What I did is not the proper solution, and probably won't be viable for more than one more WebOS update before it breaks things as well.

    Over in the GSM area, there are instructions for getting a more recent version of MHS (1.0.11?) running on an O2 Germany Pre running WebOS 1.4.0. If you can replicate that effort, it would be the easiest/cleanest way to get things going IMO.....

    So my question is do you think we will get this resolved so that it will be a patch. Or is it just better to get the my tether service?
  13. #213  
    I hope this isn't a noob question, but does MHS work with a Sprint phone? I can't get MyTether to work anymore after 1.4.0 and this time I even tried adding freeTether with IP Forwarding.
  14. #214  
    Is there any way to modify this patch to auto enable ip forwarding when mytether is opened? I have free tether and mytether on my phone. Mytether will not work if you have free tether installed without turning on ip forwarding. I want to keep both on the phone, and that would make it easier then opening free tether when I want to use mytether.. Thanks Jason
  15. #215  
    Jason, does free tether work for you without MyTether? I have Sprint, but can't get MyTether to work after 1.4.0. I added freetether and ipforwarded, but nothing.

    Also, does anybody know if it's normal to have MyTether keep saying "Enabling USB Tethering..." indefinitely, or should that message go away?
  16. #216  
    Free tether does work for me with out mytether. I have sprint too. It should not keep saying "Enabling USB Tethering" I would suggest using free tether to usb tether, and use mytether to Wifi tether. If you are using free tether to tether over usb, make sure mytether is not running. If you have both installed, you need to enable ip forwarding in free thether for mytether to give you data through wifi.

    Rozy, what os are you using on your computer? Did you enable the network driver to be able to usb tether? If not I can explain how.
  18. #218  
    I am using Vista, and at one point I did enable the driver, but I am not sure it is still there.


    Is this the procedure:

    Instructions for USBNet on Vista & Vista 64bit
    1. On Pre: in the My Tether program turn on usbnet.
    2. Reboot Pre and open My Tether again and turn on DHCP
    3. Plug in Pre to USB
    4. In wizard that comes up asking for driver software, I chose ignore.
    5. Then I went into the device manager, by right clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "Manage", then clicking on "Device Manager"
    6. There was a device called "USB Ethernet Gadget". I right clicked on it and selected "Update Driver Software..."
    7. In the wizard that came up, I clicked "Browse my computer for driver software"
    8. In the next page, I clicked "Let me pick from a list of deice drivers on my computer"
    9. It asked me to pick a type of hardware. I chose "Network Adapter"
    10. Under "Manufacturer", I chose "Microsoft Corporation". (Note: this is not the same as "Microsoft"winking smiley
    11. In "Network Adapter", I chose "Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device.
    12. Click Next.


    Also, is the step needed where I use a command line to enable usbnet, or can I just toggle it on in MyTether?

    Loonytunes, I got it working and am now posting with the connection.

    What I had to do was go into device management and I saw that 'Remote NDIS based sharing device' was not enabled.

    That is exactly what I was going to suggest! Glad you are up and running! That seems to be the problem most are having and it is a simple f!ix. Again, glad you got it working.. Enjoy!
