I just loaded the Android M preview version as of July 2015. I'm also on the Sprint network and my phone is rooted. How can I enable wifi hotspot ability on Android M?
I just tried it, and this worked for me:
(Nexus 6, Android M Preview 3, Sprint)
- With root browser go to
build.propin a text editor.
net.tethering.noprovisioning=trueto the bottom.
- Save and reboot.
In Android L, I also had to do the
tether_dun_required thing, but now that database just doesn't show up for me in Android M.
You can easily do this by connecting your rooted Nexus 5 phone to a computer and run the command in the command prompt or terminal:
After it connects to your phone run the command:
settings put global tether_dun_required 0
Then reboot and it should work!
After Android M (Mashmallow) Preview 3 -- You need to do the following to get tether / wifi hotspot to work:
- On your Windows computer open up a terminal and type:
- In the terminal window, type: "
su -" (check your phone to approve)
echo "net.tethering.noprovisioning=true" >> /system/build.prop
- Run this command:
content insert --uri content://settings/global --bind name:s:tether_dun_required --bind value:i:0
Verified; working on Android M preview 3 as of 9-21-2015.
