Barnacle Wifi Tether has an official website

Supported Hardware

Trying to assemble a list of all phone models / ROMs working with Barnacle Wifi Tether.
If a device is not listed below, then it’s either not working, or I have received no reports.

If Supplicant working is listed as no, you need to select Skip wpa_supplicant in settings. WEP will most likely not work in such case (WEP must be 13 ascii or 26 hex keys in this mode).
