I've been running this on my vzn s4 for about 4 weeks now, yesterday while I was checking my voice mail, the keypad wasnt working to delete or save messages. If I called a number that required me to enter a number to be transferred to a certain ext, the keypad wasnt working. If I remove my vmail password from the voice mail settings, the keypad doesnt work to enter my password. I dont know how long this has been this way, but I know the keypad has been working at some point on this rom.

I was running 4.3, I upgraded to 4.4 this morning and still no luck. I have xposed running, but I uninstalled it and had the same issue.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks
Dan
Curious if anyone else is experiencing this, my keypad isn't working while in a call.

Thanks

Last night I made some progress on wifi tethering. I now know the commands to make it work, but I haven't figured out an easy way to implement the fix for everyone yet.

1. Toggle Wifi off.

2.
Code:
# rmmod dhd; insmod /system/lib/modules/dhd.ko "firmware_path=/system/etc/wifi/bcmdhd_apsta.bin nvram_path=/system/etc/wifi/nvram_net.txt"
3. Toggle Wifi AP on; it should now be broadcasting properly.

4. When done, toggle Wifi AP off.

5.
Code:
# rmmod dhd; insmod /system/lib/modules/dhd.ko "firmware_path=/system/etc/wifi/bcmdhd_sta.bin nvram_path=/system/etc/wifi/nvram_net.txt"
6. Toggle Wifi on.

Thanks, confirmed working on my phone and it will be useful. I created a one line file for each command and pushed them to /system/bin for ease, but I don't know how you'd get it to run when AP is toggled.

This is the same way I would toggle hotspot on and off when we had to downgrade to mk2 on vzw s4. An easy way to implement this for people would be to create a new toggle that calls that intent action. Or using/editing an apk to do this. Although deadlysin's method of having the files in system/bin shouldn't be tough for people to do.

Another idea is it to create a conditional if then statement based script to determine when to turn off/on WiFi AP etc. I just wrote a rough idea of this in the form of a script. You can probably expand on this to accomplish what you are wanting to do.

Quote:
#!/system/bin/sh

if [ ! -z "$(cat /proc/modules | grep 'dhd*')" ]; then
echo "WiFi/AP already on"
else
insmod /system/lib/modules/dhd.ko
fi
Or I guess maybe in this particular case

Is it possible to use an app like tasker to make the process a little easier?

Has anyone investigated getting the Samsung camera to work on this? I mean, if this ROM is using a modified stock kernel then we're closer than aosp right? Anyone know of any clues as to what files are used by the stock camera?
