Wifi tethering (ad-hoc) on ICS
Running latest Team Rogue CM9 Rom. Desperate to get ad-hoc wifi tethering working in ICS on my wifi only Xoom (phone is a HTC HD2 running WM6 hence ad-hoc only option). Searched every post on every forum I can find and no luck. Anyone managed to get it work, or know if a fix is coming?

Here's a link from Bigrushdog of Team EOS.
The root of the problem is that adhoc is a depricated technology. That being said, the reason we are having issues is adhoc conflicts with wireless peer2peer, or p2p. This is a new wireless technology possible because ics has implemented the config80211 Linux wireless api stack. Some of you may have noticed a new wireless interface named p2p0 which is a member of the wlan0 control group. Also you may have noticed that p2p is also broke. I believe this is why some ics devices utilize two wpa_supplicant binaries. Also it looks like the kernel filters ibss beacons when the p2p0 interface is up. But Im pretty sure I found the source and its an easy fix. ICS is a very different Android from past releases. ICS is very forward looking and continues to merge with Linux common. Adhoc looks doable but I recommended adhoc fans upgrade their phones
