Enable and configure Android WiFi tethering hotspot AP without root


We have just made this  "1-Click WiFi Tether No Root" application, which allows you to transform your Android phone into a wireless hotspot. 


1. It easily and quickly enables WiFi Tethering hotspot AP in 1-Click.


2. It does NOT require root access.


3. It works on MOST devices with Android 2.3 or above, with MOST operators. 


4. If Wi-Fi tethering is not yet possibile with your device because of some device or carrier restrictions, we have prepared USB or bluetooth tethering as your alternative choices.


The app has been downloaded 300,000 times. You can get it for free in Google Play Store:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.diyphonegadgets.wifihotspot




Use it to get Internet connection on Windows, Mac, another phone or tablet, Ubuntu, Wii, PS3 and a lot more, everywhere. One of our users use it in the woods and dance with xBox live! What a wonderful portable party!


Perhaps the world's lightest, cleanest and fastest app for launching WiFi hotspot. We have reduced the app size to almost nothing.


If you want a secured connection with password protection, or be able to customize your hotspot AP name, please download the pro version here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.diyphonegadgets.wifihotspot.pro




Or search "1-Click WiFi Tether Pro" in the store.


Important: If this works on your unrooted device, please don't accept system updates, otherwise this application will be banned and will not be compatible with your new system any more. The only solution then should be to root your beloved phone.



Its purpose is to avoid and replace the standard manual configuration, which requires at least 5 clicks everytime you need to start WiFi tethering, which might also ask you to enter some text to configure the WiFi hotspot.

If you use this application, you only need 1 click without entering anything.

We have tested it mainly with European carriers. It works on most devices with Android 2.2 or higher.
Whether it works is really carrier or device specific. Please do not give it a bad rating. Thanks:)

Possible reasons if it doesn't work :

1. Your operator doesn't support WiFi tethering and blocks it on purpose.
2. Your phone's 3G connection is too weak.
3. Your system ROM had been modified by the manufacturer
4. You don't have a data plan on your SIM card

Here are some user reviews:

★★★★★ ScottyB Apr 9 Galaxy Nexus
5 stars for first try! So simple, literally 1-click.

★★★★★ YaqaKallah Jun 13, 2012 Huawei Ascend II
This has been a lifesaver in our home. It successfully connected our Laptops, Notebook & e-Book every single time instantly! Thanx DIY!

★★★★★ joe May 22, 2012 Moto Triumph

  1. Application works great but could you please fix it so I can save my own ssid when ever I restart. Ssid goes back to default whenever application is restarted.

  2. I was looking for a way to overwrite the config of WiFi tether, and I found your very useful code!

    I'm using a LG's smartphone, and it has a bug which makes WiFi tethering not working(ex. when too long SSID is entered).
    To fix the problem, setting must be reconfigured, but the setting window only appears when tethering is ON(what a strange!).

    So, I had to overwrite config from external app.
    Thank you very much for your code and apk!

  3. i think its really wonderfull that you guys made this app... it appears to funtion but the tablet i was using to recieve the wifi woould only show the provider tag as connected i could not open btowser or youtube ... nexus s 4g to blsckberry playbook 16gb .. PLS HELP :-)

  4. Hi fandroid, try to replace "http" by "https" to see whether that works, also try using another Android phone or a PC. If it doesn't work on neither of these terminals, it's possible that your carrier of your SIM card doesn't allow you to use tethering on their network. What this application does is just to start the standard hotspot inside your Android device, it doesn't deal with data connection with the carrier. It depends on your data plan and the contract with your carrier. But if you do want to "illegally" get tethering, you can always root your phone and try those tethering apps with root.

  9. Hi, just drag down the status bar and click on the hotspot icon, uncheck the hotspot option, that's it! Please watch the video for more details: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Z5Hb0ia6f8

  10. With the use of this app, am i going going to have to pay for the carrier wifi hotspot, does it detect that I am using it. Or does the phone not even know that the phone created a hotspot?

    ReplyDelete
  11. If it works yes, If it does not then no.

    Sometimes an app has to be forced closed to shut off, like the tethering apps for example.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Does this app make you have to pay for using the 3G hot spot? I have Verizon and i think you have to pay monthly to use the hot spot thing..

  21. I tried to generate an WPA2-PSK AP with success (CCMP only), but when trying to configure another phone for connecting to the AP, it doesn't work for me to make a WifiConfiguration and establish through WPA2 directly. I must have WPA also available, and first they establish through WPA. Then once established, I can change to WPA2 in the AP and then it works. Have you any idea of what could happen? It is my fault or Android one? Ty in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  22. hi, thanks for sharing the idea. But can you please tell me how to activate WAP2 security in this Hotspot. And also I need to get the names of client connected to my hotspot so that I can block them If I need. Any help ..

    nice tut, made it work so far that the hotspot is created, but i can't change any setting, neither the ssid nor the encryption. I'm testing on android 2.3.5 htc desire s.

    any suggestion?

    I don't receive any error, except the hotspot is created with my normal settings :-/

  28. Umm how do I use it with xbox 360 without using an adapter hence why I was looking for a tethering app....

  29. Hi. I was wondering what happened to the section of this post where it talked about a function similar wifip2pmanager (WiFiAPManager I think was the name of the function) which was hidden within the SDK before Android 4.0 was released. I remembered that there was code posted for reference. Could I still read about it somewhere else?

  31. I downloaded this on my AT&T Galaxy Note and it worked great for about a week and a half. Now it seems that even though I am connected to the hotspot I am not able to do anything like surfing on the web. I was going to buy the pro version but wanted to know if my problem comes from your app or from AT&T?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Pro version worked great until I took an ATT update this morning on my Samsung GS3 :( Now, app just looks at me and never launches into the status bar.

  37. I have the pro version and was working great until I updated my S3 with AT&T 4.3 OTA update. Now WiFi runs home to verify hotspot and it shuts 1-Click Tether down. Now I'm out of WiFi hotspot service. Any ideas on what I can do?

    ReplyDelete
  38. As of December 20th, 2013, after installing the stupid Verizon 4.3 update, the app no longer works on my Samsung Galaxy S3. I wish I had read this page prior to installing.

    Would I still be able to use this app with Bluetooth or USB tethering if not via 1 Click tether app? Any quick solutions?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have the pro version but haven't had to use it in a while because we got wifi at home. I am needing to use it now for access on my galaxy tab 3 at work but I have forgotten my password. Can someone please help me figure out how to get or reset my password?
