slimport not working after 4.4.3 update

Since updating to 4.4.3 slimport has stopped working on my n5. I have tried stock kernel and elementalx kernel and neither display any video. I have also tried a friends n5 with the two slimport adapters I have and it doesn't work either. I have tested them with a stock g2 and it works with the adapters. I currently have a gadget zone and a patec both bought off amazon.


Has anyone else tested slimport since the 4.3.3 update. If so with what adapters?

That did the trick, thanks! So why would the stock 4.4.3 not work? Does google have it disabled?

There is a new thing in the 4.4.3 update that requires userspace to enable detection of the slimport cable (utterly STUPID!!).

This should to be in the kernel's ramdisk:

# enable slimport detection
write /sys/module/slimport/parameters/enable_irq 1


You can do it manually like this:

echo 1 > /sys/module/slimport/parameters/enable_irq

on 4.4.4 checked the init.hammerhead.rc and the line exist :
# enable slimport detection
write /sys/module/slimport/parameters/enable_irq 1

also cat /sys/module/slimport/parameters/enable_irq show Y

but still the slimport to VGA adapter does not display on monitor.
when connected it show as if there is a signal ( LG no signal disappear) in tinted black , but the phone display is not shown on the screen and the layout of the phone is portrait and does not flip to landscape . who to fix it ?
