Well Gary, I tweaked your kernel. Added support for USB wireless, Everything still appears stable. Device still shows no wireless extensions for usb0. I'm still missing something. Maybe a wifi module?

The easiest way to get that is to take a few steps back and search for cyanogenmod. If you search, you'll find official cyanogenmod instructions for getting the code for and building for the Samsung Galaxy SII. That has the same CPU as this tablet, so get for it. Don't worry about getting any prebuild modules - we aren't actually compiling for the SGII.. we just want the 4.4.3 toolchain that comes with it. (Among tons of other garbage, make sure this leaves you with a file similar to ~/android/system/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.3/bin/arm-eabi-gcc ) (You can also get this toolchain from the android ndk or from pulling the latest ICS sources from google... ) Following the directions for getting the cyanogenmod stuff will also ensure you have other tools installed on your machine as needed...

I just realized that kernels built using a compiler other than GCC 4.4.3 break the baseband on my P6200. I had read that the prebuilt Atheros wireless module would break, but it was working for me, so I just kept on compiling with Linaro 4.6, etc, frustrated as hell.

On a hunch I recompiled with GCC 4.4.3 from the Android NDK and everything's working now. I feel like a retard. That should teach me to live on the bleeding edge.

Back to hacking. When are we gonna start porting CM9? I'm game!

Sorry I read through both this and your root thread and haven't come up with the answer. The firmware is listed in device settings right? So if the build ends with P6210XXLB2, I have LB2 firmware?

Does anybody know if LB2 is post-LA3, and therefore probably won't work with this kernel?

Thanks!

Decoding firmware versions:

L == 2012
A == Jan
3 == 3rd something (not sure)

LB2 is 2012, Feb (so it's later than LA3)

If I do it, it wouldn't be for money. Don't expect anything to happen any time soon, however. Even samsung developers (who do this as a full time job) haven't managed to get ICS running on this device. Hell, they can't even fix the wifi issues.

I do mean to bring up the money thing bud BUT I really don't have anything else I can offer. I'm learning Android on my days off so hopefully one day I can contribute to coding. Thanks Gary
