    Hello all. Is it possible to pick up wifi from an andriod phone with 7024? If so, how? I have tried using a wifi tether app but the 7024 did not pick up the wifi signal at all. Thanks in advance.

    I believe the tablet is connecting by infrastructure where most sock tether apps for smart phones connect by adhoc. If your smart phone is rooted there are a couple of apps that do allow connection by infrastructure.

    I'm not sure this will be helpful but I have been successful tethering my 7024 with my Touch Pro 2, booting to FRX06 from XDAndroid. The native tethering app included in that build operates in infrastructure mode and is therefore recognized. It has been a little glitchy but definitly works. Obviously I'm not taking credit for any of this. All credit to the hard work put in by the developers at XDAndroid. I guess you might be able to find out what app is included in the build I'm using and install in on your rooted phone. Hope this helps. Good luck.
