Thumbs up [SOLVED] Intentionally breaking wifi

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
Death to all but metal.
If you like my work, why not hit that thanks button?

If you REALLY like my work and want to contribute, why not buy me a beer?
