General :: Unable To Load WiFi Module On Sony Xperia E
Jun 11, 2013
I am trying to compile a WiFi driver (ath6kl) for my Sony Xperia E (Android version: 4.1.1, compilation: 11.3.A.0.47). I have downloaded the source code for compilation 11.3.A.0.47 from here: developer.sonymobile.com/downloads/xperia-open-source-archives/open-source-archive-for-build-11-3-a-0-47
I have compiled required kernel modules (cfg80211 and ath6kl_sdio), but I have encountered some problems during this proccess. I don't understand why on my android device (in /system/lib/modules/ath6kl) there are two modules: ath6kl_sdio.ko and cfg80211.ko (first one depends on the second one). But when I look at my sources, I see the following module dependencies for ath6kl: ath6kl_sdio -> ath6kl_core -> cfg80211. So there are 3 modules instead of 2. Anyway, after some modification (I merged ath6kl_core and ath6kl_sdio into one module) I managed to compile ath6kl.
I have replaced compiled modules in /system/lib/modules/ath6kl on my android device, then rebooted and I got the following error:
<4>[ 23.055226] ath6kl_sdio: disagrees about version of symbol cfg80211_sched_scan_results
<4>[ 23.055251] ath6kl_sdio: Unknown symbol cfg80211_sched_scan_results (err -22)
I am very desperate cause I want to modify this driver (to be able to calculate some network statistics) but I cannot load modules at all so I am stuck.
I'm getting this problem where I can connect to WiFi the first time with no problem but once I disconnect and the phone sleeps, it can't connect to the network again and says "Unable to Start WiFi", I can't even get to Wireless settings because it can't start the WiFi.
It's the same story with Bluetooth. It'll work once.
If I turn the phone off and then on again, it will work once more but only ONCE before doing the same thing again.
I'm new to the forum and to Android. Last week I replaced my Palm Centro with the new AT&T Xperria X10. About a week before the new cell phone arrived, I replaced our old Netgear wireless router with a new Cisco-Linksys E2000 router. All was well, except my daughter's PC (XP Home) and my other daughter's laptop (Vista), could not connect to the router. Got the new X10, and it connected without any problem.
Then - trying to get the other two computers to connect, I changed the 801.b security from WAP2 Personal to WEP Shared (One of them has an old Linksys wireless adapter that won't allow anything but WEP). Then my daughters were both able to connect, but not the Xperia. I have tried everything I can think of - no success. I changed the router security mode to disabled, and I could not connect. I changed the Xperia to Static IP - no connection. I entered the password in both ASCII text and HEX, neither succeeded.
I am having an issue where my phone connects fine to my home internet Via a new N-Router, then while using the phone and going through different apps like facebook or android market. I get errors about unable to fetch updates or unable to update page. All the while the WiFi icon is still on in the status bar. It seems that when I turn off the WiFi then back on or power the phone off then back on it work again for a short while. I don't have issues with my laptop or WiFi that use this same router.
After updating my phone to android 2.1, I'm unable to access my Gmail and other apps thru. WiFi. I have the WiFi symbol at the top which clearly shows that the WiFi is connected, but when I try to access Gmail, android market and other apps., it gives me message stating "no network connection".
Unable to install MODULE, I have a problem regarding my A13 android tablet device. It doesn't matter if I will post the brand name of my tablet or whatever because what I only wanted to fix is this. When I follow every instruction written at this link, and following instructions 1-7, after reaching step 5 execute run.bat. It displays the following image I screen captured. (And my tablet doesn't reboot, it's the sign that the computer can't access my tablet.
Obviously, my tablet is connected to the computer via USB cable after running the run.bat as administrator.But what is the problem why it is happening to me. (Additional information: I already installed and followed this instruction on this same device with no error at all. But why does it happened to me even I installed this with success before. I don't change any system file on my tablet before, and I don't know because,I didn't change any file or modify file neither on my tablet nor from my PC.)
I have a device labelled Superpad VI. everything was okay but when i tried firmware update, its wifi stopped working and started giving "error" when i try to turn it on. Now I have just figured out that the original superpad VI has ralink wifi chipset whereas this device has realtek rtl8188cus chipset. so when i try to install superpad VI firmware, everything else works but wifi doesn't. Now how do I need to install the drivers for wifi? I have found the Linux/Android drivers from Realtek website but they need to be compiled. I know nothing about compiling/programming and Linux itself.
The un-compiled drivers can be found here (under rtl8188cus) [URL] ....
i hv a sony xperia tipo which i recently updated to 11.0.A.4.27. After the update i am unable to root the device using Bin4ry saying system/app/backup-restore.apk does not exist, sustem/bin/ric does not exist. I hv used bin4ry with old firmwares and it worked but dis tim it shows the above things does not exist, but shows successful and reboots but nothing happens.
I recently purchased an unlocked Sony Xperia SX SO-05D and am using it outside of Japan. I am not able to send or receive any MMS messages. I have updated the APN settings so that I'm able to get on the internet via data. When I go to the settings in the messaging app there's not even any options/setting for MMS like there was on my Xperia go.
I purchased Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, with OS Android 2.3.3. I tried connect to my Wi-Fi network, but no success.
My network is with a password, and i entered it correctly, i checked twice before typing the pass... The device showing that is trying access the network, but after some sec. the connection is failed. I tried reset the router, but it still failed... I dont have any other wifi connections in my range so i cant check for another wifi connection.
Have tried to download the uninstaller application but after trying it twice for 4 hours each I have given up.Does anyone have any ideas why downloading this app takes so long - it is also the same for the Xpedia flashlight app which I have tried separately. In fact any application seems to take an eternity.
They apps say they are downloading but they are not very large apps so should be there is a flash but after 4 hours I am still waiting.Have tried the switch off/on but still it takes ages - I have full signal (not 3G though) and it doesn't download.
I'm tinkering with building and installing Android from source. Basically I've got it down fairly well, but I seem to have run into a bit of a problem with the wlan module, probably from HTC.
Having pulled the 2.6.27 kernel sources and built that with a .config pulled from the phone, and using that as the kernel image instead of the prebuilt one, I get the following wifi failure message in dmesg:
wlan: version magic '2.6.27-00205-gf2dabc0 preempt mod_unload ARMv6 ' should be '2.6.27-00392-g8312baf preempt mod_unload ARMv6 '
probably because the .config I pulled from the phone has:
So I rebuilt with the '00205' localversion and now I get in dmesg:
[61.122497] wlan: Unknown symbol trout_pwrsink_set
but trout_pwrsink_set was changed to htc_pwrsave_set way back in February:
[ARM]: trout: Switch from trout_pwrsink -> htc_pwrsink 33/8933/1 http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=kernel/msm.git;a=commitdiff;h=44a01f...
I'm clearly getting an obsolete wlan module somehow, Any ideas for how I can get a wlan module that goes with the '00392' kernel would be appreciated.
Very often when i try to load a website the browser sits there and does nothing, no upstream or downstream, then, finally when the 3g arrows start doing something the page loads instantly. What is going on? Do i need a different browser?
Now I've looked in a lot of places and none of them can specifically say if these are compatible with the x-10. The only thing I found was that the Jaybird is compatible with the iphone... which isn't useful. So does anyone have any experience with these or just know if it works? Ideally, Jaybird can load/play from mediascape (or even the Pandora app but that might be asking for too much), and if a call comes in, the watch vibrates, I look at it to see the caller ID, and I press a button on the wireless headphones to take the call.
Looking for a bit of help here. I have an Xperia X10. Its meant to be one of the best phones out. But I feel that I have been well rip off.Its crap. Got the 2.1 upgrade and thought this is going to be worth it. I was wrong.
When I try to watch a clip on YouTube it takes ages to load.9/10 times it does not play.WHY? Also I wanted to see a clip on BBC Sport page. Guess what it�s not supported. I can't even go onto my local radio station website and listen live.Whats the point in this phone. Wish I never bought it. Stuck with a 18 month contract now
Anyway. Is there a reason why I am having trouble doing these kind of things.Maybe internet settings are wrong.I'm using Skyfire as default browser. I thought it was basic stuff for any Smartphone to be able to watch a clip online.
Myself, started with backup and restore, backup was completed and also backed up my contacts to flash just in case. Hooked phone to PC companion and was informed an update was available. Followed through the update process and when the phone was disconnected and powered on as instructed I was still left with 1.6. Now when I connect to PC companion I am informed software is up to date with 1.6.
I was unable to receive MMS messages since upgrading to 2.1. I spoke to voda and now have the fix for anyone having problems. It may work on other networks, it may not, but it definitely sorted it for me on vodafone. Anyway, here goes:
Click on settings. Click on Wireless & Networks. Click on Mobile Networks. Click on Access Point Names. Click the Menu Button, (Left hand silver button at bottom of phone). Click Reset To Default.
Once you have done the above, turn off your phone, remove your battery and sim card, and wait at least 10 seconds and then replace your sim card and battery. Turn your phone back on and job done, you can now receive MMS texts again. But do note, any previously received MMS texts will still be un-openable so you will need to ask the sender to resend.
I got the SE Xperia 10 mini and I am trying to connect to PC Companion. when I try to connect to install it it doesn't do anything what am I doing wrong? Really need some photos and music on the phone but cant seem to do anything as bluetooth doesn't work either!
i already installed a software update software after opening it i m unable to confirm my phone. Can any body tell me the way, how can i confirm my phone, it shows me to switch off the phone unplug the battery n wait for 5 sec. then reinsert then plug the USB n continue holding the power button but it can't detected my phone.
can any body tell me how can i use this application. what is the full procedure?
I've just tried to update my X10 to the new 2.1 firmware, with absolutely no luck.I get through all the stages, everything works fine, no errors reported, everything reset on the phone, all looked great.But, when I check the version its' still at 1.6. And every time i connect it to the PC after the upgrade, it tells me there's an update available, just to go through the same thing again, and still leave me with 1.6. Any ideas?I tried uninstalling and reinstalling PC Companion.No change. I'm on Orange UK, and the update only became available to me today.
I can't install the PC companion 2.00.146. i already downloaded it but when its time to install it it says "Error Number: 0x80040707. Description: DDL function call crashed: NewUI.ISGlobalSubclassDialog." i already downloaded it 5 times assuming that maybe the PC companion was not downloaded properly but again the same problem occurs.
