    ***While we are going to permit discussion on the topic of Palm Mobile Hotspot on other carriers, under no circumstances may you post links to a copy of this software.

    Thank you for your co-operation.

    Try this at your own risk! Many people have not been able to get this to work yet.

    Drew Pre has a method for WebOS 1.4 Here:

    http://forums.precentral.net/webos-p...ml#post2287155

    Once done, you should be able to fire up MHS and begin tethering again.


    THE FOLLOWING IS OUT DATED INFO SAVING JUST FOR REFERENCE

    PHASE 1 GET YOUR IPK's

    Code:
    <<Link Removed - Do not post links to illegal distributions of Palm software>>
    
    http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-internals/testing/armv7/us.ryanhope.freetetherd_0.0.3_armv7.ipk
    
    http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-internals/testing/all/us.ryanhope.freetether_0.0.1_all.ipk
    NOTE: You need all 3 of these files for this to work

    PHASE 2 QUICKINSTALL

    Download and run the latest quickinstall HERE:

    Code:
    http://www.precentral.net/sites/precentral.net/files/webos-homebrew-apps/wosqi/WebOSQuickInstall.jar
    Run it and Then press the Arrow button (third from top) when the feeds page loads do the following:

    1.- Click the dropdown menu and "Manage Custom Feeds"

    2.- Click add, then put in a name(I chose "Webos-internals-testing-arm7"), put in this URL :
    Code:
    http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-internals/testing/armv7/Packages
    3.- Click "Close", then CLOSE the other feeds window

    4.- Open the down arrow downloads screen again, now find your new testing feed in the download.

    5.- download and install the freetetherd service

    Then install the 3 IPK's (install them with webosquickinstall by press ing the "+" button after they are downloaded. Be sure to unpack the mobilehotspot one first, it is zip'd)

    PHASE 3 RUN THE NEW APPS

    1.- Run FreeTether and enable BOTH options (swipe both sliders to the right) Be sure a IP address is listed in the first option if not, something is wrong try a restart, if that doesn't work reinstall FreeTether

    2.- Run Mobile hotspot, rename your network if you like by changing the default.

    3. When you have finished tweaking your settings enable it and connect with your laptop! You will hear a chime, if your sound is enabled, as well as get a visual notification confirming that your device is connected.

    4. If you are using windows and have problems, with it telling you it is "local only" Disable your wireless router and re-enable it.

    Enjoy, it runs like a charm.

    No problem. I just thought i'd post since most users ( at least i hoped ) would be asleep so there would be a few posts they could read & follow to get this working.

    I can't seem to download the Mobile Hotspot App.

    <<Link Removed - Do not post links to illegal distributions of Palm software>>


    I am getting a vBulletin Error:
    "Invalid Attachment specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator"

    Is there a mirror for the app?

    everything worked great for me! just copy and paste the ipk links into your browser to download, then follow instructions. It took me like 5 minutes from start to finish.

    I can;t seem to get it to work, everything is good until I try to connect with my laptop then the IP address goes for the number to null. Can anyone help with this? I've tried the restart and the re-install and nothing seems to work. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Give it a minute to sit. Otherwise try to repair the connection via the wireless router. I got the null IP address earlier but after a minute of me repairing, then waiting, i was able to connect to the WebOs network and the internet.

    What happened to the original thread? Even Jason Robitaille's article on Mobile Hot Spot is gone?!?! Is PreCentral policing for Sprint?

    BTW, I'm running a Bell Mobility Pre w/ firmware 1.3.5.1. Mobile Hot Spot works GREAT in Canada too!!!

    I'm thinking the same thing. One member on that thread had the same problem I am experiencing. I can't turn on my Mobile Hotspot. Any help on this?

    It sure seems that way, yet they are still advertising it on the home page!

    That is weird because the article no longer appears on the Pre|Central app but remains available for viewing on the full site.
