Wow! Nice!

But will this work for YP-GI1CW/XAZ (brazilian model)?
And this wifi fix could make possible to connect on WPA Enterprise PEAP MSCHAPv2? Because it's not possible now, I can connect to all wifi spots but PEAP MSCHAPv2 (wifi of my university).

Many thanks for this!

It will work for it, however this is stock so if it wasn't working at your university, I don't think it will work there if you apply this too. :S

Yeah, that's what I thought... I tried to fix this problem, but I still can't get it working there... I googled it, and found that the error is in the wpa_supplicant file, I changed the file with some I found on the internet, but I think that for it works, it must be the original file changed. Do you have any idea of how to do that? It's really bad not to connect in university's wifi, since I am there all day...

Error installing wifi fix

Hello, and thanks so much for your work on CWM! However, I tried doing the wifi fix and when I go through it it says

Code:
--Installing: /sdcard/download/wlanfix-signed.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...
E:Error in /sdcard/download/wlanfix-signed.zip
(Status 0)
Installation aborted.

I've tried to flash the kernel again, and it still doesn't work.

Yea I think it's a problem with the update-binary, Just uploaded a new zip.

    I'm all about testing. I have tried compiling Androthan's 4.2 kernel. It will not compile. I have also worked with the 3.6 that he modified and tried going file by file replacing things needed. I am almost there with this way. I have a list of things on my plate at the moment and haven't gotten around to finishing the setup. I get it to compile up to what I think is 80%. I should soon have it figured out though. Once I do, I intend on taking the source and posting on github so I can compile it. As for testing, that is one of the reasons I am here. I know how to recover from things and have all the necessary files to do so. Please if you don't mind, any help is appreciated.
