The other script simply restarts the webOS WiFi service which effectively undoes the adhoc config and resumes normal webOS WiFi behaviour. It also restores the default resolv.conf. I've been running the scripts via Xecutah. In fact I posted this via my adhoc tethered phone. I presume I can put these scripts in a Mojo(??) wrapper to make them easier to use but I'm not up to speed with software dev for webOS. I'll post tne scripts when I have access to a real keyboard. It's very tedious doing this on the touchpad.
    You can't run them direct from a Mojo app. You'll need to write a service and have that run them.

    The nameserver lines adds googles public DNS servers.

    I know this not perfect yet. I hope it help some people tho.

    Also as I see it is if you dont know how to get a terminal and enter commands there are plenty of other posts here that can tell you much better than I can. That is why I didnt provide full instructions.

    Anyway can we get back on topic? Or if there is a better soloution that someone has done then please direct me to it as I cant find it and dont want to waste my time.

    It seems dhclient is not getting an IP address. Can other clients connect?

    Delete the stored wifi profiles. Swipe them over to left or right to see the delete button.

    I'm able to connect, but only for about 30 seconds and then it gets kicked off. This is using WMWifirouter on a legacy windows TP2 phone

    I can use the web browser but not the email or messaging app.

    iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid WIFINAME
    dhclient eth0
    echo nameserver 8.8.8.8 >> /etc/resolv.conf

    I've got ad-hoc working in a somewhat more usable state. Still quite not happy with where I am with it though.

    Apologies for the delayed followup. Here are the 2 scripts. Note that the browser definitely works but other apps don't seem to. However, I can see the DHCP lease get renewed every few minutes so connections are sustained and don't drop out. In answer to a previous question, I stop the PmWifiService to stop the webOS WiFi service from getting in the way. Other apps I've tried to start up when in ad hoc mode don't seem to believe that a network service is available for use when PmWifiService is down. I'll try to check this out a bit more when I can - it looks like there are some hooks in PmWifiService that might allow it to be modified.

    Maybe I'm using the wrong forum for this discussion but if none of this is making much sense to you then please wait until someone releases the patch/app that you can just install to get adhoc wifi working. All I am trying to do here is report on my attempts to get it working. Cheers.

    #!/bin/sh
    # startadhoc
    /sbin/stop PmWiFiService
    modprobe ar6000
    ifconfig eth0 up
    iwconfig eth0 mode ad-hoc essid "5800_Xpres_JoikuSpot_XXXXXXXXXX" power off
    dhclient eth0
    #The virginmobile dns server is 61.88.88.88?
    echo "nameserver 61.88.88.88" >> /etc/resolv.conf

    #!/bin/sh
    # stopadhoc
    # restore default resolv.com
    echo "nameserver 127.0.0.1" > /etc/resolv.conf
    /sbin/start PmWiFiService
