I want to enable the wifi access point / hotspot functionality on my Droid so it acts as a "Standard" router like the built in functionality of the newer VZW phones (like the Droid Incredible). I have tried Wireless Tether for Root Users and Barnacle but they only create Adhoc connections for tethering which is different than becoming a hotspot.

My phone:

  • Motorola Droid 1
  • Rooted Android 2.2 w/ any ROM you tell me will get WAP going
  • Verizon Wireless

Edit: Just a preemptive request... Please don't suggest PDAnet. Someone always does.

This atrticle and others around the same time suggest that the hardware in the Droid is only capable of supporting ad-hoc mode.


I believe that unless you are running a different ROM (like CM6, etc.) then it's not available. Pretty sure stock ROM (rooted or not) didn't make this available (even though the non-stock ROMs had it working. Love how VZW said it wouldn't work when it obviously does.

  • I'm not sure it does. I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere. I'm running cm6.1 an still no wap. My ? is how do I make it work?
