Enable Internet Sharing / Tethering on your Samsung Omnia 7 and Samsung Focus in one click

If you still haven’t managed to flash your Samsung Omnia 7 with the latest I8700XXKI4 firmware I posted a few days ago there’s seems to be a even easier way to enable Internet Sharing / Tethering on your device and the Samsung Focus too as long as it is developer unlocked courtesy of voluptuary:

1) First install the WP Dev Tools and unlock your Samsung phone.
2) Use the Application Deployment tool to send THIS to your phone. You do not need to run it and you can delete it after it has been deployed.
3) Install the Diagnosis app by typing ##634#
4) After the Diagnosis app starts type *#9908# and select ‘System Tweaks’ press ‘Save’ then ‘Close’ and restart your phone.
5) Your phone now has Internet sharing and as a bonus is interop unlocked!

Please try it out and let me know if it worked for you.

    You actually don’t have the newest firmware. After the Mango update you
    should get one more update that is a Samsung update for your drivers and it also
    includes a new diagnosis app. If you don’t get this update notification when you
    connect to Zune you can try sending THIS(http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=17261779&postcount=2) update package to your phone to get the
    newest diagnosis app but this is at your own risk and I don’t know that internet
    sharing will work without the newest Samsung driver update.

    Guys when trying to Deploy the file i get an error saying “Unlock the device (which is unlocked) or Device in not Developer unlock”.  Do i need to dev.unlock it??  If so how is that done?

  • Nick Quadens

    Doesn’t work anymore after update 7.10.8107.79 ! When I want to enable Internet Sharing it gives an error that there is no Data Connection to be shared, 3G is enabled though !

    Anyone got the same problem ? 

  • Roberto Arias

    roblem here

    Did you try to deploy File Deployer again and do the necessary steps? That could resolve it ?

  • JV

    Same problem. I tryed to deploy the xap again, but nothing to do! :-(

    Indeed, after update internet sharing stopped working.. Hopefully a fix will be made soon

    me too … i try to repeat the process but it doesn’t work … 

  • http://www.facebook.com/salvatore.naddeo Salvatore Naddeo

    anyway, it can be reactivate by wp root tools, in 
    local_machineservicesics the value 
    “UserProcGroup” must be set on 5 (dword )instead of 32 (dword)

  • Karthik

    worked on my focus s, thnx…

  • Jet73

    Thanks. my internet sharing stopped working too after the 
    7.10.8107.79 update. 

    Your fix works. however, you forgot to mention that you need to reboot the phone after you do the registry change.
