1.Turn on data connection and then connect wifi to an AP.

2.Go to Internet sharing, then repeat toggled wifi hotspot on/off many times quickly, leave wifi hotspot with off state at the end.

3.Go back to wifi setting, wifi will repeat turn on/off many times.
Hi Kai-zhen,

Has any scheme to handle it?

From v2.1 and later version, tethering manager is supported [1]. If hotspot setting use tethering manager this issue can be fixed. 

For v2.0/v2.0m I think there are two options:

- back port tethering manager then update setting to use tethering manager.

- Simply work around in setting.

As in comment 2, we get two choices to solve this issue. And I don't think it is a good idea to back port hotspot manager at this moment. 

I can provide a workaround solution, but not sure if it can be landed into our gaia. If partner can accept the behavior of the workaround, I think they can pick the patch to use.

Zhensen, could you apply and verify this patch? Now the timeout interval is 2s (2000ms), I think you could also try 1s or 1.5s.

Do you have any update?
Non blocking, denominate.
