Lightbulb [Q] 4.3 Patch Wifi

Hi,

I installed this rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2564430 and installed the wifi patch and it works perfectly. I flashed it via odin as instructed, my question is if I move to another 4.3 rom do I have to flash the wifi patch via odin every time or just this one time?

If you are referring to the wifi bootloader patch, it will persist until another bootloader is installed.

Doing an OTA/odin/Kies official update to 4.3 will replace the bootloader with the as of yet irreplaceable official 4.3 bootloader. Simply flashing a 4.3 rom via recovery wouldn't typically replace the bootloader.

Likewise, doing an odin flash of an official 4.1.x rom will replace the bootloader with the replaceable 4.1.x versions bootloader. To get the 4.3 compatible function back you will need the odin the patch again.
