DART-MX6 Android 6.0 Build Wifi issue

Postby gvigelet » Tue Jul 05, 2016 8:51 pm

I have tried the Android 6.0 image from the recovery SDCard Image and an Android 6.0 build via the build instructions published on the website with the same outcome. The WIFI module will not load the Firmware and function properly. Below is the messages received, any help would be greatly appreciated.

init: Starting service 'p2p_supplicant'...
wl18xx_driver wl18xx.0.auto: Direct firmware load failed with error -2
wl18xx_driver wl18xx.0.auto: Falling back to user helper
wlcore: PHY firmware version: Rev
wlcore: firmware booted (Rev
IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

Thank you,

The DART-MX6 is equipped with wl1837 by default
apparently TI has a bug in 1837 wifi (and only 1837),
they have now released a bugfix of the firmware see attached.(rename to .bin)
see below from TI

The bug:

We found an issue in TI module RF performance on 5GHz band

The issue was related to our PLL configuration and was introduced as a result of enhancement done in PHY version 226.

The fix:

We decided to revert the enhancement done in PHY version 226 and stay with the same method as was used in previous PHY versions and for non TI modules (which is the same method being used for 2.4GHZ

Hi Oren,

Does this fixed version of the TI WiFi firmware get built in the steps outlined in the current Variscite Developer Guide for Android 6.0.1?
