Hi, everyone!
I have just ported the ap6335 driver to linux 4.5. I would like to share my ugly patch to you.
I have also packed a new firmware, which is built with buildroot, for you. You can have a try easily.
You can login with root acount, blank password.
If you want to create a access point, just :
echo /lib/firmware/fw_bcm4339a0_ag_apsta.bin > /sys/module/bcmdhd/parameters/firmware_path
ifconfig wlan0 up
hostapd -B /etc/hostapd.conf

The default ssid/password is firefly/11111111, you can change it by editing /etc/hostapd.conf.

Enjoy youself!

Oh,sorry. I forgot one step.
Before you run hostapd -B /etc/hostapd.conf, you should give wlan0 a ip addr 10.0.0.1(depends on /etc/dnsmasq.conf)
ifconfig wlan0 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0

Sadly not. I only struggle with ap6335. It still has some problems, though.

sdio_reset_comm() will cause kernel crash. So I remove ENABLE_INSMOD_NO_FW_LOAD . You cannot change between ap mode and client mode without reboot.

Ohh, I see, but it's really nice anyways !

I'm trying to recruit people to create a fork of the latest linux version on github (4.6-rc3 in this case) and create some linux images with it. Would you be willing to help us doing the ap6335 work on it ?

thanks !

Well, you have your point !

I just thought a newer version would be better because our fork would take longer to be outdated like firefly's stock kernel (3.10), but maybe going with the stable one would be better in this case.

So, would you be willing to help us (me) to bring kernel 4.5 to firefly with your ap6335 port ?

Thanks !
