I have not tried this myself, but there's an app named ADB Wireless (no root) which, as the name suggests, claims to make this possible without involving root: This app is for developers wanting adb access over WiFi without rooting your phone. … *** NO ROOT REQUIRED *** Usage instructions can be found on the app's playstore page – looks pretty easy ...

First of all you will need root acess. Now download any root explorer app and navigate to: data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf Within the file you will find saved passwords.

If you have an Static IP Address to connect a router, then you'll have to long press your wifi name and then advanced options then enter a IP Address manually.

If you would like to send and receive SMS messages over Wi-Fi, I would suggestion using Google Voice (Now integrated into Google Hangouts). You will be able to send/receive SMS free of charge (As long as you are using Wi-Fi). I have done some quick Googling, and didn't see anything that says it doesn't work in Canada. Give it a shot and see if it works for ...

I don't know about Canada, but here in the UK some carriers have apps that let you use your WiFi connection to send texts and receive using your normal phone number. I'm not sure about using this overseas but you could probably use a proxy (like Hola) if this is blocked. Even if an app exists but you cannot receive texts with it then this is generally free ...

I can't seem to find a manual for the unit (the website doesn't properly link to the "Manual&Download" section from the header, and the "Support Center" link doesn't do anything at all), and since it doesn't mention anything about a WiFi antenna adapter, it's hard to say one way or another with any level of confidence. That said, it may be possible. It ...

Parts of those build.prop tweaks (and several you did not mention) are explained in the attachments to this XDA post. Let's see what of yours is covered – which are mostly the RIL settings (Radio Interface Layer): ro.ril.hep : unknown and undefined … may not even exist ro.ril.hsxpa : 1:HSDPA, 2:HSDPA/HSUPA, 3:? (HSUPA only?) ro.ril.gprsclass : see: GPRS ...

This seems like a simple-ish fix. Assuming you are rooted, open a root-ready file manager, and go to /system/etc. Find a file called hosts. Go into it, and delete it all, other than the first line, which should say: 127.0.0.1 localhost (if it does not, change it to that) Then you should be fine (May need reboot) If you are not rooted, go onto your ...

As mentioned in the accepted answer, you need to have root access. Then download an app called Wifi password and grant it root access. It will show all the saved Wifi passwords in your phone. To make sure that the app is not considered for other purpose(s), the app's author has mentioned: This app is not a Wi-Fi password cracker. It just shows ...

The app that makes calls to this site from my phone is the "Sprint Connections Optimizer" which is my phone company's network spy. If your service provider is Sprint then this is definitely your problem. It was tracking all my wi-fi connections in hopes of creating a dynamic map of networks to the benefit of Sprint, from which to steal bandwidth rather than ...

I had this problem recently and solved it by removing old saved networks in the WiFi settings. I found that there were a huge number of networks with names that were strings of letters and numbers. To remove saved networks open 'Settings' and choose 'Wi-Fi' (and wait for it to load). From the 3-dot menu choose 'Saved networks'. You should see a list of ...

Thanks to the Community bot bringing this back up, figured I would answer it. As a matter of fact I fixed this very problem on my coworker's tablet today. What I did was download the factory image, extracted the modem.bin file and flashed it via odin. No root required and this method will not remove any personal data from your device. Just need a PC, Odin, a ...
