Default Question about flashing i717 roms

I tried to search and did not come up with the information I was looking for, but I was wondering what would be entailed in getting WiFi and vibration to work with the att note i717 ROMs. I flashed aocp the collective from the i717 by replacing boot.img and everything seemed fine except WiFi and vibration.

I tried replacing dhd.ko and vibrator.ko with ones from a T-Mobile ROM but that did nothing. Also if anyone has gotten those things to work what was done? Any information is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

So i doubt we'll get a response but it this possible? I;m about ready to dump this phone and just take the hit and leave tmobile. I have never had as much issue with a phone just getting a stable release. Between terrible coverage to random restarts this phone is just coming off as what i expected from samsung.

It definitely seems like its a kernel issue, I think I'm gonna post a question over in the i717 forum, hopefully get a response. Some of those guys are using t879 ROMs and I wonder if they had similar issues with the WiFi and vibration? I haven't been able to dig anything up. I'm in the process of unpacking the kernel, I'm gonna try a few things and see if I can get this to work. Setting up the environment is taking a while.

Alright, I have finally got WIFI to work with i717 ROMS, now im just working on getting the vibration working. should be able to have that working here in a just a short while. afterwards i will do a write up for those that want to try it. definitely will give people more options for flashing roms.

The only rom i have tested with so far is the latest version of paranoid 2.56 for the i717, will try this method with others after i get vibration going. Other than those two things i have not noticed any other problems with flashing i717 ROMS.

Nice, well I have a device to test and break stuff on. I've given up on what we currently have available because everything I've tested in the last month just turns to **** after a week.

wifi and vibration are now working. I posted a thread in the development section. The fix is bundled into a flash-able zip file for flashing in recovery!

The only thing you should have to do is pull the boot.img and replace with a boot.img from a T-Mobile tw based ROM. I tried doing just that on black star over in the i717 forum and it worked fine, I ran it for a few hours before switching back to jelly bean and I didn't notice any problems with the ROM.
