    It's not at all clear what you are asking. You obviously need write access to /system to replace the wireless kernel module, and you obviously need adb in recovery to get that, so...

    OK....The way I was able to root my phone was the SD Card pull, in and out over and over again. I tried the loop file, but it didn't work.

    What I am asking is, If I use quick boot to get into recovery, can I access the kernal module that way, or am I supposed to do the SD Card Pull until I access recovery that way?

    Or am I just crazy even thinking this?

    you can install wireless N using custom recovery

    1. download http://hydrakernel.cz.cc/kernels/hydra_uv_n_v02_signed.zip
    2. place hydra_uv_n_v02_signed.zip on root of sdcard
    3. boot into recovery (ClockWorkMod)
    4. select "install zip from sdcard"
    5. Select "choose zip from sdcard"
    6. choose the hydra_uv_n_v02_signed.zip file
    7. DONE, you'll not only get wireless n but you will also be overclocked

    PS thanks for linking my video :)

    Thanks for posting this.

    I'll admit, I am a NEWB, but just to confirm #3 means to power off and then on holding down volume and power, wait for card to fail out, then recovery...correct? Don't I need to change the file name to update.zip?

    And what is the benefit to overclocking? If this is overclocking by increasing the volts isn't that bad for the CPU?

    Ok, now that it's done what does the overclock do? I know undervolting will save battery life correct?
