Enable Ad Hoc Network Support On HTC Desire S


HTC-Desire-S-wifiDo you own a Desire S, and have an Ad hoc network setup for all your wireless needs? Frustrated by the lack of Ad hoc support on the Desire S? Not anymore, thanks to XDA-Developers forum member brokenworm who just solved this issue for you! He has released a fix that allows you Desire S to pick up Ad hoc networks without any issues at all.

The feedback from users has been quite positive and the fix has proven to be quite successful. Installing the fix is quite the simple task, even for the most novice Android user. However getting to the part where you can actually install this fix, is not quite the novice users cup of tea. However we try, and will show you exactly what you need to install this fix from scratch.
