Do you have working wifi with .37 kernel? I tried both a kernel built by nicktime at 20th May and self-built one from latest git. Also I tried nicktime's Ubuntu image and emdebian unstable. Firmware is in /lib/firmware and /lib/firmware/ti-connectivity (tried both places too). With any combination I can't get wlan0 up:
Code: Select all
# ifup wlan0
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy
Failed to bring up wlan0.
Can you give me a recipe?
i'm not happy with the performance of the .37 kernel, i really like bubu's kernels: http://www.openaos.org/wp-upload/gen7/
they work well and i am able to quad boot ubuntu/lucid-maverick, wmod-rc2, and the legacy rom, wifi doesn't like the musb driver in the 37 or 27 kernels, the 37 kernel needs alot of work and i haven't been able to compile the wifi driver from sources yet, my device is a gen 7, and im still trying to update the kernel, there have been rumors on releasing the "security code" but the ones i've found still dont build apks correctly,
you need the firmware_class, wl1271* mac80211, cfg80211, rfkill, and the firmware/ti-connectivity from ubuntu_root to get it to work, and you should edit etc/net../interfaces wpa_supplicant, and resolve.conf accordingly, you can also "alias" wlan0 as tiwlan if your good with debian and depmod sripts, but again, i've had no luck connecting with my (enterprised TLIP 2M enabled wpa2) connection
also note that numerous modules need to be unloaded to activate the wifi driver in the 37 kernel, and it does, and will fail with an ifdown, it needs to get an ip with the if up command and keep it or it "pukes"

my device is only two months old...
i sold 1 of my 3 devices last week and no i'm regretting it (i wanted to test a suspicion of a bad dsp chip)
