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.

The device has a Quad...
The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
