Hi there,

I noticed noone seems to have ever bothered building cifs.ko (the Kernel module necessary to access Windows Shares) for
the Galaxy Note 10.1

So I build one. Actually it's two modules md4.ko and cifs.ko (md4.ko has to be loaded first).
I have successfully tested the module on my EU N8000 running XXALGA with CIFSmanager. Streaming a 720p mkv with
MXPlayer just works really nice.

Here you go:

DISCLAIMER: I am providing these kernel modules as-is. Altough they have been tested by me I take no responsibility whatsoever
if you break or damage your device while installing and/or using the modules. I am also not going to explain the steps necessary to actually
use the module. You should already know how to do it...or at least be smart enough to find out what to do

Enjoy!

Sounds like a very helpful piece of code.
I really think that i could need this, but for me as a non developer... how to use this kernel modules?
Could you build a kernel including this modules for flashing via CWM so anybody can use it?
Best regards,
Gery

It does not work for me: no such device.

I have moved the files to /mnt/sdcard/cifs. I entered " /mnt/sdcard/cifs/md4.ko;insmod /mnt/sdcard/cifs/cifs.ko" in cifs manager

I'm Running GT-N8000 DR.AKRIM_ROM N8000DDALI1_v0.31 4.1.1 12-9-2012

Is jellybean a problem?

I have an non-rooted italian N8000 running the latest stock firmware, and can access all my windows shares using the samba client built in in EsExplorer, no problem for me. What exactly is this module meant to do?

Does not work for me as well. I'm running JellyNote beta 1 rom. Could someone please recommend custom rom which is supporting cifs or where would work this modul.
Thanks!

What's the use of this module? I don't understand... I haven't installed the module but can access flawlessly all my windows shares using the samba client of es file exlorer. I can also play any shared media file through such client, using any player installed in my note!

Hi,

I compiled the cifs modules for the JB-Kernel. I couldn't test them out as I had no time to update, yet. But I need the cifs-modules so I started with them.

So, if anyone wants to try it out, please go ahead.

This is the first time I've build a kernel for android, just that you know

Greetings,

Maz
