Ok, for the detailed instructions-
Gkernels works with all known gingerbread roms to my knowledge, as an alternative, and is compiled from Dell source, thanks again to Dj Steve for wifi functionality tip-
During this experience, in my opinion I believe the Dell gingerbread kernel is more of an art than a science; I would love an android 3.0 port to work with,
hopefully it will transcend and include more functionality.
at any rate I got the coffee going:
Method 1:Assumption is on a linux distro,
obtain a prebuilt fastboot and adb binary, and get them into your /bin folder, to use the commands from anywhere within your system
download Gkernels1.3 and extract, if you have not already done so.
attach streak to computer with usb cable;
from the extracted archive directory run this command in terminal:
sudo adb reboot bootloader
the streak will then boot into the fastboot mode
fastboot -i 0x413c flash boot boot.img
fastboot -i 0x413c reboot
then from same directory, run this command as phone is rebooting:
sudo adb push dhd.ko /system/lib/modules
I then recommend rebooting one more time.
Method 2: Any system
Re-substitute the boot.img and dhd.ko in the archive, by replacing same files, in your chosen rom's update zip;
transfer to the device
then flash as you would the rom using your prior flashed recovery. Delirium77 reported earlier in this topic how they got it installed
Thanks to Delirium77!
Method 3: Bypass for adb with root explorer/total commander app from the market
flash the boot.img with fastboot per method 1-
copy the dhd.ko file to your sd card, unplug your device, and using root explorer/total commander, navigate to the file on the sdcard, then move it to:
ensure the dhd.ko file has correct permissions, then your wifi will function after a reboot.
