Default Sony Vaio Flip 14A

I have installed newest version on vaio 14A and almost it is working perfectly . I installed it Sandisk mini usb 16GB .Graphic performance is better than Note 3 ( I have used several benchmark ) . I couldn't installed it on the device's SSD disk . Because it didn't see it . Biggest problem is power consumption and it is very high . Touch screen is very responsive . Auto rotation is not working ( I am using manual rotation) .

Okay, Android 4.4 is now "working" on the Surface Pro thanks to this thread:

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...86/GrPdnpa6XBM


BUT,,,, WiFi is still not working. Bummer.

Anyone know how to get a WiFi driver for the Surface Pro to work in Android? We could always recompile now that this is really the only outstanding issue.

I remembered that Android-IA 4.2.2 has working WiFi on the Surface Pro.
But I can't find the source for it, only the install files.
We can try to get the WiFi driver from it for the 4.4.

Rather than trying to extract the driver from the rerede build, why not just use the driver from the official linux kernel (kernel.org) located in drivers\net\wireless\mwifiex. Im a bit of a noob so I don't know how to do this or if it would even work or not.

Also, I tested out the rerede build and it is quite unstable. Wifi/sound doesn't work half the time, freezes after going in standby mode.
