OK guys.... here is the deal... Got a Galaxy Proclaim (obviously). Took phone to work, and tried to tether and/or hotspot as I had my laptop and 2 hours before I started.
Installed Wifi Hotspot and USB tether lite. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.svtechpartners.wifihotspotdemo
Could not get it to work. Since installing it, Google Play and Facebook (as well as some other) apps will work on Wifi, but get "no connection" (on Google Play) and "Error loading Time Line" (Facebook) if using 3G.
Looked all around the net and found the following....
"Check date and time, I fixed it and it worked for me". Tried it, did not work.
"Delete cache, cookie and other settings" Tried it, did not work.
I even did a factory reset (against my better judgement) as it erased all my apps, and my progress in coin dozer that lost me THOUSANDS of coins. Did not work.
Called *22890 to reprogram the phone. Did not work.
I rooted it, and then installed the CWM and the AreaRom thinking it wouild totally overwrite everything in there. Really nice mod by the way!!
But still did not work.
Tried the (stock) Proclaim Recovery from here http://androidarea51.com/
***-all-things-root-***-150/%28stock%29-proclaim-recovery/ Got a message saying update aborted.
SO I guess I am stuck with the AreaMod, not a bad thing I guess, but I really need to get the Apps working on 3G. As I mentioned, they are fine on Wifi just not 3G. Browser works fine on both WiFi and 3G, HOWEVER I do get a message saying "Please not, your browser experience has been enhanced. Complete the following steps to finalize the update 1) Enter your cell phone number below and click submit. 2) You will be re-directed to the newly enhanced browser. NOTE: THe top of the page has a Net10, Trackphone, Straight Talk, TelCel and Safelink logo. Entering any number at all gives me the following.....
"Your phone is not currently set up to be used as a modem or mobile hotspot. To see if these services are availabe click continue".
Not sure if I mentioned, but I deleted the Wifi Hotspot and USB tether lite app first thing before doing any of the above. For some reason, whatever it did, the root and the AreaRom did not rectify the problem.
I also noticed someone on the net had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM, with teh SAME PHONE (Proclaim) a year earlier, and never got a response, so I have no idea if the got if fixed or not.
Then I find this..... **ROOT IS REQUIRED!**
Here is a short fix for the No Connection Error on play store. It may not work on all devices.
1. Download Total Commander from Play Store.
2. Install it in your Device.
3. Open Total Commander and goto Root of System. (/ )
4. Open the etc folder.
5. Find the file named "hosts", and hold it for 3 seconds. Choose edit file, and choose Total Commander Text Editor if prompted.
6. Delete everything and paste this at the first line: " 127.0.0.1 localhost". Copy it exactly, dont modify anything.
7. Save the file and overwrite if needed.
Total Commander (Root file explorer I am using): http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23060877489996531
I try to open the file, but hosts is 1.0MB and when I try to edit it says "Not enough memory"!!!!
Edit: Fixed the misspelling of google for ya (daddy366)
