can't compile wlan.ko for Z5 Compact

Hi 

few weeks ago , i compiled a custom kernel ( with some new drivers from guide https://github.com/offensive-security/kali-nethunter/wiki/Modifying-the-Kernel ). After install , all kali linux apps work perfectly, but wifi doesn't work.That was because I forget to compile prima/pronto wlan module . And at this point problem start:

  1. I don't know prima or pronto module i should make for my Xperia Z5 Compact

  2. I can't compile any of this module 

 I have tried many of compilers, prima ,pronto but everything crash 

 

If it posiable may someone make this module for mw , or help me with this

Re: can't compile wlan.ko for Z5 Compact

Hi,

 

Xperia Z5 uses a BCM43455 HW connected over SDIO instead of Qualcom prima/pronto

The reason you fail to enable the functionality may be because you try to load the wrong driver

Re: can't compile wlan.ko for Z5 Compact

Hey how are you going re this module?  Iv made/been making a port of NetHunter for the Z5C as well. Have you had much success?  I'd love to see your kernel repro 

Regards.

Re: can't compile wlan.ko for Z5 Compact

Hi mate.

Use this ....

https://bitbucket.org/UBERTC/aarch64-linux-android-7.0-kernel

To compile this...

https://github.com/joeisgood99/Z5C-Copyleft-Kernel.git

 Branch - NetHunter-N.376

 

I can upload the exact toolchain I used if it doesn't compile.

Also read through this...

https://forum.xda-developers.com/z5-compact/general/kali-nethunter-sony-z5-compact-t3715425

 

It should work without you having to build it and references all my source code.

Regards.

Re: can't compile wlan.ko for Z5 Compact

Thanks master. But i dont understand to compile it. Can you share the kernel just like anykernel2.zip (just like nethunter for Z ultra/togari) that support monitor mode to z5 compact ? So. I just install it by twrp.
