Problem Solved

Posted on Updated on

As discussed in the earlier post Android doesn’t support Adhoc wifi connection. But after searching few websites and forums I found the solution. There are two different versions “wpa_supplicant” files in android v0.5.x and v0.6.x. The pre-compiled versions are given below

wpa_supplicant(v0.5.x)

wpa_supplicant(v0.6.x)

Perform the following steps

1. Connect your device using USB

2. Type “adb shell wpa_supplicant -v“. This command is for checking the version of wpa_supplicant present in the device.

3. Download the appropriate version of the file from the links given above.

4. Extract the files and type the following command “adb push wpa_supplicant /system/bin/” 

5. This will overwrite the exixting wpa_supplicant file present in the device with the modified one.

6. Restart the device to make changes.

 

ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES
