    bcm4329 module

    Hi Everyone,

    Model: Nexus One
    Android Version: 2.2.1
    Baseband Version: 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.12_7
    Kernel version: 2.6.32.9-27227-g3c98b0d android buid@apa26#1
    Build Number: FRG83

    While trying to setup tethering on my Nexus One the other day, I really dorked up my phone by installing an app that over wrote my broadcom wireless module. I don't have a backup and now I get "Error" when trying to turn on my wireless. Looking through my dmesg output I see the problem:
    <3>[ 346.781097] bcm4329: version magic '2.6.32.9-27240-gbca5320 preempt mod_unload ARMv7 ' should be '2.6.32.9-27227-g3c98b0d preempt mod_unload ARMv7 '

    Is there anyone who could send me the correct bcm4329 module. Or take pity on a hapless wit and provides directions on who to retrieve this file ?

    Hopefully I have provided enough information with my post, if not please let me know

    thx !

    Are you rooted? If so you could flash this kernel and push the bcm4329

    Hey SBS,

    Thx for the prompt reply, yes I am rooted, but I am not ready to flash a new kernel just yet. I have had the phone less than a week and would like to see what the stock kernel has to offer. Silly me installed the Barnacle Wifi Tethering app before I realized that tethering is part of Froyo (major DUH !). Mind you I am NOT faulting the app a loose nut behind the keypad is the problem
    I did download the .zip though. and checked the magic version of the module just for grins.
    # strings bcm4329.ko |grep magic
    vermagic=2.6.35.7-cyanogenmod+ preempt mod_unload ARMv7

    Well in my opinion custom kernels are much better than stock. So you are rooted but just running Stock? You know you could always install Rom Manager from the market and (after backing up) Flash a new ROM or a stock Froyo ROM. That would fix your problem.

    Just installed the Clockwork Mod ROM Manager and I am backing up the dorked image as I edit this. This little app would have saved some grief if I knew about it a couple of days ago.

    I checked the stock ROMs available and I don't see the FRG83.

    However, big thx for the tip !

    Knowing how easy it is to try other kernels Do you have a suggestion for an image to try other than the cm_2635.7-oc-uv-xtra-btn-aud-ram-neon_fp-100210 suggested earlier ?

    Resolved

    Resolved the issue last night. Thx to SliceBurgSlim for his suggestions.

    While this may not always work it seems to have worked in this case.

    1. Downloaded a stock FRG83 ROM.
    2. Checked the "vermagic" string in the bcm4329.ko (wifi module)
    # strings bcm4329.ko|grep magic
    vermagic=2.6.32.9-27240-gbca5320 preempt mod_unload ARMv7
    3. This was not the magic string the OS was looking for so using a binary editor I opened the module and modified the string to what was called for in the dmesg output in the original post. '2.6.32.9-27227-g3c98b0d preempt mod_unload ARMv7 '
    4. Pull the damaged module out and save it somewhere (to be cautious)
    # adb pull /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko /var/tmp/.
    5. remount the file system as read write
    # adb shell
    # mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    6. Push the new/modified module into place
    # adb push /path/to/new/bcm4329.ko /system/lib/modules/
    7. Reset the file system as read only
    # adb shell
    # mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    8. Reboot
    After rebooting my wireless service worked as if it did originally.
