I saw a page about a firmware update at:
http://htc-linux.org/wiki/index.php?.../Wifi#Firmware

I have a couple of questions I'm hoping someone can answer. (I did search this forum and the developer one. Didn't find what I was looking for.)


Have there been any reported issues with the new firmware?

Does this actually upgrade the firmware on the phone (permanent, run just once), or just run a virtual firmware layer (update every build with it)?

Is there a change log showing what's been updated with the new firmware?

Who put out the new firmware? Was it HTC or a third-party developer?

Is there a file to revert back to original (if it is a permanent change)?

What's the deal with the free software firmware over at OpenFWWF? It's directly under the GNU section, but the outline columns make it seem like it's part of it.

Thanks for any help you can give in the matter.


Edit: Oh, and it's for HD2s, right? The Europe or American version?

This is all just observation take it for whatever its worth.

I Havent tried it as I use a modified kernal.

I am no dev but I dont think its permenant as Its for the android builds. I do believe that onces its included you wont have to keep adding it to every build.

Cant tell If it was from htc looks like its originally from broadcom themselves.


I found this http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=pla....git;a=summary

I think that maybe the base for the driver over all.


Hopefully some can shed some better light on the subject as you have great questions.

I am looking to see if i can find anymore info.
