Android Ad-hoc Wifi support

Posted on Updated on

Today while going through few websites for the design of wifi chat application I came to know a fact related to android wifi connectivity. The WifiManager class present in android API ignores Ad-Hoc networks. Android only connects through direct Access Point. But the ad-hoc support can be enabled by

-making changes to android framework 

-configure “wpa_supplicant.conf” file present in  system/etc/wifi/ (Needs root access)

I am trying to figure out to make any changes without root access.
