Quick background before I get into the gory details.. I am a linux person by nature, and a extreme nub when it comes to phone hacks, but have a moderate-to-high knowledge of building and hacking hardware. Long story short, I have about 20 different projects at the moment and don't have time to learn the quirks and file structure of android.
I have found it quite annoying that my Razr Maxx does not connect to my 5ghz/N network, and have done some prelimnary research, and it seems that the WL1285C / WL7 should support N on that high band.
Looking at the OMAP info in the OMAPpedia forums, it seems the kernel has drivers written for the 5ghz WL7. If the chip actually _supports_ 5GHz, i dunno as I cannot find the raw datasheet for the WL7 1285c
Searching around the net, and my phone, it seems that the Razr /system/etc/wlan_fem.ini is just a quickie hack of the [ source ini ] from Texas Instruments. Basically, its just missing the 5ghz configs for the mac80211 kernel module.
It seems like this is a simple hack, no? Additionally, I would try this out if I could unmount the /system directory on my phone... any quick instructions on how I can modify those contents?
derpderp. mount/remount for /system directory. regardless, i have found the ini file, but just need to get the module rebuilt i think..
EDIT: Additional data:
I should be able to rebuild the wifi firmware config on the device, but was hoping someone has a list of all the process that use the wl kernel modules...
