If you just copied and pasted the permissions on the modules would have been rw-rw-rw-. The permissions on the modules need to be 0644. Copy and pasting them dooesnt change their permissions. You need to make sure the contents of the modules folder are owned by root (0) and have permissions set to rw-r--r--(0644).

Copy and paste the modules into /system/lib/modules as you did before then copy and paste the following into terminal line by line and dont modify the commands in any way:

Code:
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
cd /system/lib/modules
chmod 0644 *.ko
reboot
then hit enter to reboot.

Just now I remembered that you have to switch on the permissions in tool area of the r/w . I did that then tried again and still failed. ES won't let me delete the old files or rename them.
I'm stuck because each time I try to copy to device/system/lib/modules it fails

Ok. Then open terminal type the following first:

Code:
su
mount -o remount, rw /system
Then copy and paste the modules In that folder and run the commands I typed in my previous post.

I got lucky!!

I rebooted a couple times, re-checked that the permissions in ES stuck in root explorer to all R/W's.

Then I went to device/ system/ lib/ modules and tried again to rename the existing 2 files and it worked. Then I copied in the 2 files need, rebooted for the last time and BINGO, working wifi

BIG thanks for all the time spent and help!!

I do have one weird issue.

On text receiving, I see the flash of the incoming message on the notificationbar but the response is not added to the conversation list

Default Files in /system/lib/modules

I've hit the same problem here- I was getting so many self-restarts and hangs from my ROM slot that I wiped it and reinstalled, and now WiFi won't turn on.

I'm running MI1 still (was happy for a long time, not not so), SafeStrapped, and have installed Hyperdrive RLS10.2 and the jfltevzw-MI1-modules. Phone works, 4G works. WiFi will not turn on.

I tried wiping Dalvik and cache, rebooting, then fixing permissions via Hyperdrive tweaks, but no luck on getting it to work.

I've read through the thread, but here's the thing: When I look through Stock device/system/lib/module, there aren't two files, but about nineteen or so in there. Which ones am I looking for?

Sorry to resurrect this, but I figure it's better than starting a whole new thread to ask the same question.
