    Will you get extra range(being 1x1) besides the router range? If its not able to connect to wireless N does it default to G?

    Do most routers broadcast N because where I work I get wifi but I could never get streams to work, maybe they locked the feature? or is it something that only N can do?

    Its a lot easier if you use the mdawg program. i just redid the root process after then added the commands. I could not seem to get su with your method at first.

    Sweet deal, just gave this a shot. Getting 65mbps transfer rate now :). I assume this might be the cap of the phone since a single channel N device should get 150mbps

    will this make file transfers between my laptop and my Inc faster? i'm already maxing out my internet speeds. i'm getting up to 13mbps download and 2 mbps upload speeds using the speedtest app. the weakest link is my internet, which isn't weak. the file transfers between my laptop and phone are not as fast as they could be though. so if this will help that, then i'll do it.

    Not too sure but I probably wouldn't do any OTA's after going root mainly because you arent too sure what else the ota may patch up.

    Yes, mine works great. Make sure you keep the bundle of files you rooted with on whatever SD card you're using in your phone. Try a reboot.

    As long as you renamed the old driver to *.orig like the steps stated you will be able to undo the change.

    Rename the original? opps! unless it was one of the steps in the instructions I'm pretty sure I didn't, now what?
