    Hi

    Are we able to have 3g and wifi concurrently?

    I have Seagate wireless plus and itself is a portable wifi hotspot to its own content. I am able to stream pictures music and video from the battery operated hardisk.

    However while I am connected to the Seagate wireless plus, I cannot connect to my 3g. That meaning I can't have Internet on the go which is a very big limitation.

    That being said I would like to know if our Xiaomi device can have 3g and wifi concurrently?

    Any help is much much appreciated.

    It's possible with a rooted phone.

    Actually it is, I found this thread that describes how to do it on an optimus G phone, and based on that I was able to do in on vanilla android 4.3 as well (my rooted nexus 4).
    You need to put a couple of scripts together, since you need a series of shell commands for turning this on and off, I recommend the wonderful SH Script Runner for this.
    Here is what I did on my Nexus 4. It works perfectly but note that you don't actually see the wifi icon turning on, but if you run "netcfg | grep UP" you will see that the wlan0 interface is up and running (as well as the rmnet_usb0 mobile data interface, both of them will be up and will have the expected IP addresses) and you can access your local LAN while your mobile data 3g/4g whatever provides your default route to the outside world.


    The above is information from Xda. How can I incorporate thus into our Xiaomi m2

    Code:
    # enable dual-networking:
    pkill dhcpcd
    svc wifi disable
    svc data enable
    netcfg wlan0 up
    cd /data/misc/wifi/.
    wpa_supplicant -B -Dnl80211 -iwlan0 -c/data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
    dhcpcd wlan0
    ip route add x.x.x.x via x.x.x.y # add any desired local route

    # disable dual-networking:
    ip route del x.x.x.x/x via x.x.x.y
    pkill dhcpcd
    pkill wpa_supplicant
    rm -rf /data/misc/wifi/wlan0
    netcfg wlan0 down
    svc wifi disable
    svc data disable

    This is the script
