Thumbs up [HELP] Slight modifications to rebuild a kernel

I know this is a bit scarce, but I need help with a kernel. Why? Because I unfortunately don't have a
computer at the moment (much less Ubuntu suite), just my trusty GT-i9505. Also, I have a few
questions.

First of all, this is the guide I am following:
[GUIDE] Use aircrack-ng on android phone using Wireless USB Adapter
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2338179

This guide is aimed towards amateur kernel builders,
and the suggested ROM for use with this is Cyanogen Mod. Although, the post does mention that he was able to use his stock touchwiz ROM. He mentions he was able to do it with a few minor adjustments (along with the kernel and .md5 file):

Quote:
I got this to work on my stock Samsung TouchWiz ROM by making a few adjustments:
- Get the kernel from Samsung: http://opensource.samsung.com/
- Change the lines in the .config file of the kernel below ## Samsung Rooting ... from =y to =n using nano
- To get boot.img, download the ...tar.md5 firmware matching your current firmware from http://www.sammobile.com/firmware/, rename .tar.md5 to .tar, and extract the boot.img. You cannot use mkbootimg here, only abootimg, as this boot.img has a special ramdisk address!
I would love to do this with my current TouchWiz ROM, (not stock) Samy Deluxe ROM- Operation Ivy


Any help/luck doing this? Thanks in advance

Default Bump

Bump. Let me also add that I can give the source to the kernel (of the ROM I have).

Really all that needs to be done is to rebuild that kernel (and follow the steps of course to the guide I'm using).

I have a TP Link tl-wn722n USB Wireless adapter, so I need to have the module/driver installed into that kernel.

The name of the kernel is 3.4.100-GoogyMax3_TW-v1.1.3

Here's the link to the kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...2&d=1407942420


I downloaded my kernel and looked inside of the zip file and don't seem to find a ".config" file as mentioned in the guide, but did see a boot.img so I don't believe there's a need to download the .md5 file:

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
