- Is it possible to use the v6 over the v5.11 or I have to use the v5 version?
- I guess I must be root to apply the patch, right?
Thanks very much!
you need a rooted device to flash the signed update.zip or push the modified wpa_supplicant. Always do a nandroid backup! use the 5.11.
The file was compiled for android 2.2 so it shouldn't work with eclair, depends how much the system libs have changed (bionic libc, libwpa_client.so..), so make a backup try it out
and revert in case of fail, or ask a eclair rom developer to build a patched wpa_supplicant for you, unfortunately I have no 2.1 toolchain ready at the moment.
