    The warp 4g has an 8960 config. You would have to write some of the modules in. I know for a fact that our Wi-Fi module is missing from it

    that is true an its 8930 kernel, but there defconfigs are marked as 8960. so I am going to wing it an see what happens, I lost track where I was at with the sony. the 8930 one may be closer an need less moding

    So far from what I've seen every divce that uses our Wi-Fi module is stuck at ICS. This may be why ZTE never upgraded us. I've been trying to find an updated module to write into the Elden source but have not had any luck, so I really hope your approach of using a more modern kernel solves the issue

    Is the Wi-Fi the same on all msm8960's or do they all use their own "chip"?

    Not 100% but I believe they are all the same. All 8960s that I am aware of use kernel version 3.4. What I was trying to find was an updated module that I could back port into 3.0.8, but have had no luck. Right now it looks like someone is going to have to do some serious work to make kernel 3.4 compatible with this device.
