We should not allow users to modify Wifi hotspot setttings when Wifi hotspot is enabled.
That's fine with me. Let's disable the button that says "Hotspot Settings" in this case.
vchang, why not? On my Galaxy Nexus I have always been always been able to change the SSID if I needed to. What is the reasoning to prevent it?

I checked with Galaxy s2, it allows user to modify ssid/security even if Wifi hotspot is enabled. But I found that it still needs to stop Wifi hotspot first, and starts it automatically. The limitation is that we need to remove previous configuration in network subsystem before applying the new settings.
Kevin - can you help resolve this in the next week? This was called out as being of major concern for a partner.
This is addressed by: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/pull/6769 For now I went with the option of hiding the "Hotspot settings" button when the hotspot is enabled. I'm also open to investigating the possibility of live updates so users can update hotspot settings and it will restart properly. I might recommend creating an enhancement ticket for UX to look at.

I guess I made the "patch" wrong. It doesn't redirect, do I upload an HTML document? Pull request here: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/pull/6769
