    Why don’t you just install the firmware update from HTC and avoid all the hassle?

    What firmware update from HTC? And if there is a firmware update, does it make this app work?

    Just checked the app and out of 89 comments about 69 say it doesn’t work or left 1 or 0 stars (still don’t know how to leave 0 stars). Of the remaining 20, about half said it worked with the above workaround (and some have NoDo) while the other 10 just state the app works, with no other explanation.

    So if it will work hassle free on my Surround with the pending updates, great. But I am not gonna hold my breath just yet.

    HTC Hidden Wi-Fi Tool – How To Make It Work

    I have an HD7 from T-Mobile. I also have the NoDo update. The “workaround” specified above still doesn’t work for me.

    It does get me to the point where I can enter the name of a wireless network. As mentioned above, it does not show the name of the network that I entered on the page after I’ve entered it. However, it also does not show up in Settings/WiFi. All I get is Searching… which never goes away.

    Hmm, that’s odd. Several app comments suggest it does work so I wonder why. I assume you are within range of the “hidden” network and you used the exact syntax for the SSID. The name you entered won’t just show up on the list.

    Yes, there is a firmware update from HTC and it makes this app works.

    Do you know where is the update?
    I can’t find it. My HD7 doesn’t detect it with the workaround and there is no update on HTC’s HD7 support section.

    Exact ‘syntax’ for the SSID? I thought it was just the name. Is there some special syntax I need to use?

    I am definitely within range. It’s my office network and you can’t get much closer than right next to the wireless router. The name is spelled correctly. I’ve used it thousands of times on laptops to setup their wireless connection.

    How does one go about getting this firmware update? It certainly hasn’t been offered through my Zune software. I’ve heard rumors of one, but no one has posted a firmware number so I can’t tell if I have it or not. Perhaps T-Mobile hasn’t released it yet.

    @John: Sorry, syntax was probably a poor choice. I really meant making sure you entered the SSID correctly, which you obviously did and fully understand.

    I got a firmware update on my Surround bundled with my NoDo update earlier this week. And yes this app is now working the way it should. I thought I have read in blogs that HD7 users around the world were getting updated firmware. What method did you use to get NoDo? Debranding, etc., or did you wait for it. Some users reported needing to rebrand before getting the carrier sanctioned update, including firmware and radio updates. You may need to check around to find out what the original/updated firmware numbers are. Maybe HTC’s Support Forum. If you post a question there on firmware numbers someone will answer. Being anal as I am, I recorded my old firmware, radio & bootloader numbers prior to updating. Hope you get it worked out.
