On Omni 4.4.2 I'm trying to get Wifi Direct working for both file transfers and as a required part of screen mirroring and found this post that describes a fix that is out of my ability to test (my computer shuts down from heat every time I try building a rom or any big compile)
I just would like to bring it to the attention of of a actual OMNI developer.
Have you actually tested that fix? Re-enabling that if just means that it won't return an error when Wi-Fi Direct isn't supported. So you might not have your "failed" message, but it wouldn't work either (unless samsung magic).
