hello,

i am conducting an experiment on my gt-p5210 and need to break/remove drivers/firmware for wifi
so when i try to connect=no BUT without vaporizing the wifi section in settings. I had thought removing
the contents of /system/vendor/firmware bcm4334xxx.hcd would have done it but no.
I am on my 5th kernel compile/experiment and am not sure if i accidently compiled firmware [wifi]
into kernel. any meaningful help would be appreciated.

thank you for reading

Look in lib/modules or /system/lib/modules for a file called dhd.ko and rename it.

It may be part of the boot.img ram disk.

I love some of the subtle sci-fi references you find in the android firmware.
that or i'm seeing something that isn't there.
Referencing stargate, a "dhd" or dial home device was what activated the gate.

sorry for being off topic, but I had to comment
