OK, while I appreciate it's become a cliche, but is there an app for this? I tried the store with "ad hoc connection" and got a few interesting results with no need to alter the WiFi supplicant - although you may need to be rooted ;-)
Any chance your device could use Bluetooth?
Yep, FolderMount is OK, but not exactly what I want which is why I asked originally about ROMs in progress.
AppMgr absolutely does not work on the Hudl, reporting as such due to the SD card being emulated. I actually did try it which is why I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. No worries, I don't seem to have any of the "issues" an awful lot of others are experiencing (screen blanking when connected via HDMI, touchscreen failing, charger not working, etc, etc) so having grabbed up an early model seems to outweigh the very slight niggles I have. Thanks for the responses.
Thanks for that, GravityBox and various plugins run in same day as gaining root , one day after dragging the Hudl home; I'd rather a ROM which switched default storage to the real external SD so just thought I'd ask if anything was brewing.
Looks as if mods to both the WiFi antenna and GPS leads could be done quite readily. I must have really fat fingernails, no amount of attempts can get one jammed in the thing - although I did manage to fracture the end of one so a manicure's coming later ^_^
I don't need to open it up, yet, so I'll hang on before ramming a tool blade in.
