I'll be patient for a fixed cm9, and try to be even more patient for cm10, but we definitely get the gold toilet seat this weekend, right?

I don't know why people are saying it's kernel source - it's actually source to the Wi-Fi module.

Hey Daz, think this may take more than twitter to ask/answer. What does the source for the wifi module allow us to do?I thought the kernel source had a module for the wifi already? Does this compile the bcm wifi module for the /etc/modules directory? Sorry for the questions, kernel source development is one thing, still a long way off learning about rom development.

Ah OK, I thought they'd supplied it as part of full kernel source drop, sans the funked up netfilter module. Of course I culd've answered my own question anyway, by just checking your last github commit ^^ Derp.

They don't build it within the kernel build process as a typical module, the Makefile they use actually lives in hardware/broadcom/wlan/something/dhd/linux in their platform. It uses KERNEL_OBJ to link with the kernel, so it's not a case of them intentionally removing it from kernel drops - technically it's part of the platform, but is still GPL and they are still releasing a binary. The various versions of DHD available in the kernel are the upstream ones that aren't actually used and won't work.

Because it's built in the platform and provided by Broadcom originally it's wrapped in a ton of Makefiles that are all incredibly different, so the current problem is getting it to a. build, and b. work, before even integrating it in to the kernel preferably.

Does this compile the bcm wifi module for the /etc/modules directory? Sorry for the questions, kernel source development is one thing, still a long way off learning about rom development.

It compiles Dongle Host Driver, the low level Wi-Fi driver which is tied quite closely to the kernel. It's quite susceptible to breakage with a few kernel edits, and eventually hex editing the module isn't enough. The source release (providing we get it building all good) allows us to be more adventurous with the kernel (as we can just build it as part of the kernel so it never breaks) and potentially fix the Wi-Fi hang with custom kernels, as we'll have full control over all source.

^ above regarding kernel containing source

Wouldn't it be better if this thread was locked since no development is taking place in it?

Then we wouldn't have to put up with this perpetual cycle of inane questions and condescending replies.

Or just wait until its fixed and working as you all know you will be bombarding this thread with help requests and fix requests if its released with bugs or missing features.

Right, I guess it's time I started maintaining this thread again.

Some of you may have noticed this: http://www.huaweidevice.com/worldwide/downloadCenter.do?method=toDownloadFile&flay=software&softid=NDY5MjU=

It's important, and it's something that me and some other people were asking Huawei to release for a couple of weeks. It's the source code for the dhd_4330.ko module that I have spoke of many times. It was released in a form that is pretty awkward for us, and we fixed it. We can now build the Wi-Fi driver as part of the kernel as of about a hour or so ago.

Why is this important? Because it gives us a lot more portability. Problems with using a dhd_4330.ko ripped out of the stock ROM began to arise. Now, we simply don't need to care about Wi-Fi as it's rebuilt every time to match the kernel for that build. This means we can happily update the kernel to any version and not have problems with DHD. This might also happen to fix the Wi-Fi causing a system lock. If not, who cares, we now have full control over all the code and can fix it ourselves.

Going forwards, there's a CM9 re-release imminent. Why CM9? Because there's a few specific issues with CM10 that need to be worked out -- it's all minor stuff, nothing is broken, but it makes more sense (at least to me) to fix the things that are in both CM9 and CM10, plus, people probably want something in their hands after such a wait. I know of 2 issues in CM9 and after that I'm pretty stuck on what to fix. :P
