Oops. I removed the screen from WifiTile, but forgot to remove it from WifiApp as well. The screen was just something I used for debugging.

What do you mean "try"? Does it not work?

I mentioned the desire for alternative wifi settings myself a few posts ago. But it requires quite some additional functionality: A configuration screen to enter the information, reading and saving a configuration file, and picking the data from 2 different sources.


I just tried your app and it's working great. I changed (hard coded) the app to reflect my guest wifi network instead of the SSID from the Toon config. When having time I'll try to create a config screen and read/write it to a config file. Never tries qml myself.

Version 4 now has a configuration screen that can be accessed by tapping the tile. The configuration screen provides the possibility to define a different wifi network than the one used by toon.

One security concern may be that a guest could conceivably open the configuration screen and switch the setting from the guest wifi network back to the main wifi network and gain access the local network. In such situations it may be best to block any unknown MAC addresses from connecting to the main wifi network.

This version also escapes any special characters in the SSID or password.

The app is getting close to being ready to go into the Toon store. I just don't know if it works/looks OK on a Toon 2.

Toon2 has a different screen resolution, otherwise there shouldn't be a problem. Please checkout the guidelines for toon apps to go into the toonstore. The packaging environment for the apps is fairly strict regarding naming convention and upper/lower case.

You can find the guidelines here (some bits regarding image resolution are a bit outdated for toon2, but otherwise they still hold):

You can contact one of the TSC-team members when you want to submit the app to the ToonStore if you’re ready.
All members of TSC-team have a Toon1 and Toon2 to test with so we can always try and give you advise if needed.

I will publish the app in the ToonStore somewhere this week.
I can already tell you the app doesn't work on 4.x firmwares as it is now because specific Qt 2 modules are used which do not exist in Qt 1.

Hi all,

the app by hvxl is now available in the ToonStore (version 1.0).

Note for hvxl: I had to change the filenames ("QR" into lower case) due to limitations in the bitbake environment.
The app is only available for firmware 5 and higher in the ToonStore.

Kind regardz,

I'm sorry. I thought the lowercase limitation was only for the first letter. Thanks for fixing it.
