Hello, I have problems running the program, the Nexus 7 is rooted correctly, and in my opinion, it's like not working properly the DHCP device, since no good maps the IP on devices that connect to it.
Here some screenshots before and after connecting the Program:

I then told him to enter 192.168.43.1 and he was able to access and download files from the device. People who are not aware of the AP IP wouldn't be able to access it and are likely to give up.
