USB reverse tethering = Cellphone gets network connection from PC via USB.
I know how to do USB reverse tethering except for one problem: Many Android apps will check network connection using the code below before doing any useful work:
ConnectivityManager connectivityManager = (ConnectivityManager)context.getSystemService(Context.CONNECTIVITY_SERVICE); NetworkInfo info = connectivityManager.getActiveNetworkInfo();
The problem is that, when using USB reverse tethering, the above code will report no network connection. However, there IS a network connection (which is the USB reverse tethering itself), and ping, wget and all programs not doing this stupid check work well.
So the question is: How can I hack the system to let this network connection check return success (so that I can fool these apps)?
BTW. I use Cyanogenmod 7. And any solution specific to this MOD is also welcome.
