Trick an app into thinking wifi is connected ?

Unread post by Leroy08 » Tue Jan 01, 2019 4:46 am

I'm running the Lineage 7.1 Android on my XU4 with very good results. However, I've run into a problem with two different internet radio apps that don't work because they don't see a wifi connection (even though ethernet is connected). Most notably, Tune-In radio is one of the apps (Audials app works fine).

Is there a way to make such an app know there is an internet connection, or fool it into "thinking" the connection is from wifi? I've done several searches and found nothing that addresses this issue.

There's an xposed module called fake wifi that could do it, but not sure if it still works on your android version. Last used it on C2 on Android 5.x

Interesting, thanks. I'm not real crazy about xposed, but it would be worth trying, I guess.
