Enable Wifi HotSpot on HTC Vision (G2)

Wanna use your G2 as a mobile hotspot? That’s now possible thanks to an interesting find by XDA members sherifone and HamNCheese. Normally, enabling the Wifi Hotspot requires root acces, but sherifone found a not-so-easy way to do it – with emphasis on not-so-easy. Some advanced steps are needed to establish a stable connection, and temporary root, but once you have it, you will be more than happy with the result.

In short, sherifone found a way to acces the application – which seems to be already installed, but not available in the menu’s. You can do this by installing Launcher Pro, or any other application that lets you insert your own path to create a shortcut on the home screen. Finding the path to the application was easy, thanks to the Nexus One. Now, you might think that you are there, but you aren’t. The hardest part has yet to begin.

The next steps include temporary root, adb commands, and code-level editing to get a stable connection. All the steps are described perfectly in the thread, so if you want to use your G2 as a mobile hotspot, make sure to check it out. Subscribe to the thread or bookmark it if you are expecting your G2 to arrive soon!

A Look at the Telegram+ Situation

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...
