Perhaps it would be easier to change the Vega to allow it to connect to adhoc wifi networks, rather than changing the hero?
Yes, the phone is left alone, it is the tablet that needs to be modified to allow connections to an adhoc site.
Sites that I used for the folio (same tegra2 platform as vega and Viewsonic Gpad) are shown below.
The most important thing to do before you do any modifications of the wpa_supplicant files is to make a copy (on the device and copy one off onto the SD card too). This will help if you have any errors and need to restore stuff!
your wpa_supplicant.conf file will look something like this once you have edited it using the instructions from the XDA thread.
The location of wpa_supplicant.conf is usually in data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf - think this is where it was on folio I used root explorer for moving, copying and editing.
ssid="MightyROM" <-------- this is your ssid for your hotspot
wep_key0=1234567890 <-------- this is your wep key
this is the thread i followed -> http://forum.xda-dev...532#post9079532
each time you move back to an infrastructure router (at home or work) it will overwrite the wpa_supplicant.conf file and you will lose adhoc mode again, which is a pain.
So using this second thread I managed to get the little script tool that this chap uses to swap between the 'adhoc' and 'infrastructure' wpa_supplicant files (use the same names as his and then his script will work without modification) and you can then easily 'jump' between the two. One of the Dev's may get round to modifying the wpa_supplicant file (not the wpa_supplicant.conf file, this is just a text file) and you will then not have to worry.
It is not too hard to do just have a good read through each post and ask questions if you want more info - I am sure others have done this for the Advent and they may have more relevant info. This should work but it has not been tried by me on the Advent
Obviously you will need to be rooted for all of the above.
