We are using an iMX53-based custom platform running Android Gingerbread with iMX53 freescale Android R10.2 BSP. I am trying to set it up as an access point.I have the WLAN device driver and hostapd installed. I was assuming I could start/configure the access point via the GUI but am unable to find how to do this. I have seen references to menu --> Settings --> Wireless & Networks --> Tethering & portable hotspot --> Portable Wi-Fi hotspot for Android 2.3 but I do not get these options. I only have
Menu--> Settings --> Wireless & Networks --> Tethering. Tethering is USB only.
Any ideas why "portable hotspot" might be missing? Is this included via some build option?
