Re: here is an Wi-Fi throttle fix for Android 9 users (non root or rooted)

Just run this ADB command:

adb shell settings put global wifi_scan_throttle_enabled 0
How do I do that?
What is this?
I haven't a clue.

Re: Wigle Wifi for Android: Suggestions

Sidewalk isn't public WiFi, it's an alternate wireless network to let devices talk to your Amazon devices as a gateway. It would be interesting to add detection of active Sidewalk devices in a stumbling rig, though I'm not sure if the protocols would allow for the right info capture... Okay, I stil...

Re: Wigle Wifi for Android: Suggestions

A few weeks ago, I heard of "Google Sidewalk", a new ability that allows devices like "Echo" to provide a bit of Internet access for everyone within 'hearing' of the device. But, a little searching and I cannot find references to how people are supposed to actually use that Internet. We should be ab...

Amazon Echo et al: Will it increase the number of WiFis to be found?

Within the last few weeks, I have been reading of a not-particular-well publicized policy to use Amazon Echo devices (and others) to provide WiFis to the public. It will be on an opt-out basis. Do we Wiglers have to do anything to find these devices? Moreover, can our Wigle scanners now actually USE...

Re: Kingman, AZ Wardrivers

About three years ago, I visited a relative in Kingman, but wasn't driving my own car, so I was limited to holding up a smartphone as somebody else drove in the area.

Re: Wigle Wifi for Android: Suggestions

For longer runs, users can turn on "Display routes for execution" in the settings panel which will efficiently draw lines on the map showing the entire path of the current run. Android 9 (Pie) has wifi throttling that can't be turned off. Android 10 and 11 have throttling as well, but there the thr...

Re: Wigle Wifi for Android: Suggestions

I suggest that the number of displayable teardrops be doubled, or even quadrupled. I scan many large and complex areas, and it is difficult to do so if the earlier teardrops begin to be erased. If this requires more non-volatile memory than you expect that a phone would have, I'd be happy to buy SD ...

Re: Android Pie and WiGLE - news articles about scan-throttling

I have a preference for Motorola phones: Cheap. Here's a page describing which Moto phones will be getting Android Pie. What with the scan-throttling behavior of Pie, I figure I'm going to have to collect a group of Android wardriving-capable phones which are guaranteed NOT to "upgrade" to Pie. I ju...

Re: wow...everybody buying online ?

Having finally allowed by two Moto X4's to upgrade to Android Pi, they are both now useless for wardriving. So, what I need is a new phone, ideally one that has a very fast scanning rate, Turbo-charge capability, replaceable battery. I also have another question: Since I don't need telephone capabil...

Re: Android Pie and WiGLE - news articles about scan-throttling

I just allowed my pair of Moto X4s to upgrade to the current revision of software: They did what seemed to be about 10 sequential upgrades. So, I assume they are essentially useless for wardriving. But now I have a need for a wardriving smartphone. I want one that won't ever upgrade to android pi. B...

On Android 10, in programming options throttling can be turned off.

Re: Google Android 9 and up: We won't fix WiFi Scanning

I use two Moto X4's, ("Android One")and I have prevented them from updating to Android Pie: Mostly because of the WiFi scanning problem that is being talked about here. My understanding is that when Android 10 (?) becomes available, this scanning limitation will be removed. At that point, I expect t...
