    ... And did you find anything interesting while your were in there? (1.0.6)

    the next webos update will probably make 1.0.6+ the default. not muchelse , but the file is 4KB bigger, so i'm sure theres more limitations added
    My Tether - version 2.1.0 now live. No patching, no ad-hoc, more features!

    hm, just a thought...the Updates app knows about and checks for updates to all our apps, homebrew and otherwise. That means that, when you use the Updates app, Palm could potentially check for the presence of MHS on your Pre. What if they reached in and deleted it?

    ...'course, one might have saved the original files, so that it might be possible simply to reinstall the original app, but to do that every time you check for updates might get to be a pain.

    Just thinking out loud.

    not likely. MHS was released after 1.4 went to beta.

    1) Mytether It isn't free
    2) Mytether has been a kludge (It is getting better, though)
    3) Mytether doesn't present Infrastructure, only Ad-Hoc which is a problem for many users
    4) MHS is less likely to break with each WEBOS update
    5) MHS shows what devices are connected
    6) MHS supports WPA (EDIT: Beta version of Mytether now supports WPA, supposedly)
    7) MHS works in the background with no tricks
    8) MHS sends status alerts even when phone is locked

    So why are we "wasting our time" again? It took me about 1 minute to install freetether and MHS.

    Got it to work from home, thanks bro. BTW i think they have to delete it cause it's against policies to distribute files owned by sprint/palm.

    Mytether has never acted strange? NONSENSE!!! Perhaps you need to read the hundreds and hundreds of complaints and problems in the mytether threads!

    I have read every post on freetether/MHS since the start. 99% of the problems with MHS have been:

    1) People install freetetherd incorrectly because they didn't update their webosQI first [which is not the fault of freetether/MHS] [[And this is 90% of the 99%]]
    2) Their phone was freaked with so many patches and such that it became in an unknown state [which is not the fault of freetether/MHS and also affects Mytether the same way]
    3) Network problems with their client devices [which is not the fault of freetether/MHS]
    4) Signaling issues with the cell network [which also affects Mytether the same way]

    The remaining 1% I can't explain, but certainly falls in the same general 1% of Mytether problems that nobody can explain.

    Stop trolling!!! I paid for mytether and I am quite familiar with it. It is an OK program, and I am glad it exists, and I am glad he is updating it. But in several important ways it is not as nice as freetether/MHS (on its FIRST VERSION too). The biggest problem with MHS is that it (or the service it relies on) is likely going to get changed and this whole wonderful project might get flushed down the toilet.

    If you have something constructive and informative to add- great. Otherwise, please stop pretending that freetether/MHS is junk and Mytether is super-great; because that is just not reality.

    The next webOS image for Sprint will also not include MHS at all. It wasn't designed for Sprint, and when they went from 1.0.3 to 1.0.6, they locked it to Verizon-images phones (somehow).

    Unless Sprint introduces some type of tethering plan (like Verizon has), there will never be a newer version of MHS that will work with Sprint phone (unless someone hacks it to death).

    The wonderfulness of MHS will quickly and abruptly disappear if 1.0.3 stops working (or the underling service it depends on). Personally, I think it was a series of two "mistakes" on Palm's part- the biggest being letting the unlocked 1.0.3 version "slip" onto the net. The second being the inclusion of the underlying service in the Sprint image of 3.5.X. I hate to sound negative, but I am now almost certain that the parts in WebOS that MHS uses will disappear in the next update.... guess we won't have to wait long to find out....

    I don't think it would take but a few seconds for Palm to disable MHS in 1.4 for the Sprint image. Being in beta isn't going to stop such a change.

    I personally wouldn't lose any sleep over it. As long as Verizon's P+ doctor image (and MHS) is downloadable, somebody will find a way to extract the missing services.

    Besides, the only "magic" that their package does is set the wifi interface in Access Point (AP) mode. Other than that and the neat user interface, I'd be willing to bet that the core functionality of MHS could be recreated with a few optware downloads and a shell script of 40 lines or less.....

    I agree with everything you just said (and it doesn't conflict with anything I said either). The "open" nature of the Linux underpinning of WebOS will make it notoriously difficult to stop all tethering methods (until they start seriously mucking around with the kernel driver modules; and they have to be careful there, or they will violate the GPL) in the Pre itself. They will have to attack the "problem" from the Sprint tower side.

    I don't think this super-easy solution will remain long.

    Initially, Mytether worked great and gave my data plan added value. Tethering has saved me a couple times when my internet connection drops for whatever reason at work or home. With each WebOS update, Mytether became tangled and inoperable. The developer would quickly fix these issues, yet the camera patch became too cumbersome.

    In short, I decided to move to freetether and Mobile Hotspot. First, I removed MyTether and installed the files below. Upon launching Mobile Hotspot, it would continue in an endless cycle to connect and never gave me tethering connectivity.

    Then I decided to erase my Pre with WebDoctor (my first time in 7 months). I thought that it would give me a better feel for the Palm Profile backup reliability and ease the Mobile Hotspot installation. WebDoctor restored my Pre to factory conditions and the process was straightforward. Then I began the freetether and Mobile Hotspot installation once again. Upon launch Mobile Hotspot would NOT enable. The switch (on/off) will not move in either direction. One could still change the Network Info and enter the passphrase.

    My next step will be to use WebDoctor and start over again. Please let me know your thoughts on this scenario before I proceed with the restore. I could use some tips. Several questions do come to mind listed below.

    1. Could the Palm Profile still contain some corrupted files from the MyTether installation?
    2. Should I perform a FULL Erase and delete the USB partition?
    3. Should I install Diffstat and the GNU patch first (the Pre has to be in Developer Mode for WebOS Quickinstall)?

    It seems I have to do this when switching to the Pre MHS connection from my home WiFi... i have not had to do it yet when the MHS was the only WiFi available.
    running windows 7 and I follow all the steps you state but I never get to "hoose the option to reset your Network Adapter."

    might you have another idea?
