Wi-Fi working on CyanogenMod 9 on Huawei U8185

So I just got Wi-Fi working on CyanogenMod 9 on Huawei U8185:

I’m using the Atheros AR6kSDK kernel driver and wpa_supplicant 0_6_X, so it’s kinda ghetto… 😉 Right now Wi-Fi scanning, WPA2, and DHCP work, but for some reason DNS isn’t working so, while you can reach hosts outside your network, you can’t actually browse the web yet.

See the following commits to understand how I brought it up:

  1. Good stuff, cool to see progress. btw, what else doesn’t work on this build?

    1. Hmmm, also broken: off-mode charging, bluetooth, the other party hearing you in a phone call, camera, uh…? I think that’s it.

  2. Wow, a working wifi module… At last! and Alan, I’ve told you that a guy from 4pda.ru had found a fully working Phone.apk for CM9… Haven’t I?

    1. Hey, Maximik. Yah, you told me. I need the source code for his fixes, though! I can’t fix it in my ROM unless I have the source 🙂 I’ll probably find the fix eventually, but I am all alone, and there is so little time, ya know. 😛

  3. This is huge man! Lemmi sync and see for myself :), DNS is the last mile. No biggie!

  4. Congratulations
