Wifi 802.11n on Desire 2.1
I can confirm this IS working on a desire 2.1!!!!
I have attached an update.zip that will enable wifi N on any desire running 2.1 and also will update the wifi drivers to the latest drivers.
Works flawless on my MCR rom
This is kernel dependant, please download correct file for your kernel!
If yours is not listed please make a post stating your rom and kernel and post your bcm4329.ko from system/lib/modules and I will update this post with a zip for your phone
Thanks for different zip's/.ko files go to:
For tethering use: http://code.google.com/p/android-wif...2.apk&can=2&q=
How to make this hack your self if a zip is not available for your Rom:
Take bcm4329.ko from system/lib/modules and open it in a hex editor. Search for 'nmode' and replace it with '-----'. There are 2 instances of this so make sure you replace both.
After that download any 1 of the attached zip's and replace the bcm4329.ko in the zip with the one you just created. Sign the zip and flash!
Also to answer some other questions: changing to WiFi n will NOT make your WiFi faster because you can only be as quick as the slowest link which will be your internet supplier which in most cases is up to 8mb in which case WiFi g is more than capable. Updating to WiFi n is mainly for stability/greater distances from your router.
Also in theory WiFi n will most prob drain more battery than WiFi g but in my zip's there is k newer firmware which is suppose to help in battery drain. I have not personally noticed a difference but as a general rule if your not using WiFi then turn it off! That way theres no battery drain!
I hope this answers some questions for you ;)
