Hi guys. I was using this great kernel on my Oneplus 8T with the Unofficial LineageOS ROM and everything was working fine. I updated the ROM and did the usual process to flash Magisk and the kernel: patched the boot.img for Magisk, then installed the kernel with EX Kernel Manager. But after flashing the kernel WiFi stops working, here's the logcat:

01-11 11:36:56.965 910 910 E [email protected]: Failed to open driver state control param: No such file or directory
01-11 11:36:56.966 910 910 E [email protected]: Failed to load WiFi driver
01-11 11:36:56.966 910 910 E [email protected]: Failed to initialize firmware mode controller
01-11 11:36:56.966 910 910 E [email protected]: Wifi HAL start failed
01-11 11:36:56.966 1417 1889 E HalDevMgr: Cannot start IWifi: 9 ()
01-11 11:36:56.966 1417 1889 E WifiVendorHal: Failed to start vendor HAL
01-11 11:36:56.966 1417 1889 E WifiNative: Failed to start vendor HAL
01-11 11:36:56.966 1417 1889 E WifiNative: Failed to start Hal
01-11 11:36:56.966 1417 1889 E WifiClientModeManager: Failed to create ClientInterface. Sit in Idle

It obviously has something to do with the updated ROM, but what could the problem be? Could it be because with the latest ROM update the developer changed the install procedure?
Before it was:
  • $ fastboot flash boot boot.img
  • $ fastboot flash dtbo dtbo.img
  • $ fastboot flash system system.img
  • $ fastboot flash system_ext system_ext.img
  • $ fastboot flash product product.img
  • $ fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
  • $ fastboot flash vbmeta_system vbmeta_system.img
Now there's just a big .zip file to flash with fastboot update {filename}.zip, but there are a lot more .img files than before in the .zip:
boot.img, boot_debug.img,dtb.img, dtbo.img, odm.img, product.img, ramdisk.img, ramdisk-debug.img, ramdisk-recovery.img, recovery.img, super_empty.img, system.img, system_ext.img, userdata.img, vbmeta.img, vbmeta_system.img, vendor.img.
Flashing back LineageOS stock kernel makes WiFi work again, even with Magisk, but I miss this kernel.
I think there's some conflict with the img files, but I'm no expert. Could someone help me?
Thanks!

For OOS android 11 only...

AOSP code for kernel has many changes. Something changed with WiFi which is why it doesn't work anymore. You were lucky it even worked before.

Sup bud, thanks for putting your project out there to all of us to enjoy!

I'm rolling with a rooted OP8, featuring A11 OB5 + xXx + Acc module. Using FKM to manage kernel options.

I'd like to ask if:

1. Does it have sound control? I'm looking forward to be able to improve my mic input volume, so ppl can hear me better.

2. Does it have battery idle? Device starts to draw power directly from the power outlet, once Acc does reach a given battery level, allowing you to let it connected to the charger all night long, reducing battery heat and stress.

1. Sorry but no, no sound control available for any sm8250 kernels afaik

2. Yes, it supports op battery idle and working flawesly with Acc
