I flashed my Dell 1397 Wireless card in my Mini 10v with the 0x004e and it worked but it seemed slow so i swapped antenna wires and it seemed to be much faster? My question is that, do you normally have to do that?

I can't imagine why that would make a difference.

I tried to do this...

Followed instructions as written in original post....

Now, I am stuck at the spinning wheel when I try to reboot.

I thought that maybe if I removed the card, it would boot normally, but still no luck...

Any ideas on how I can get past the spinning wheel on boot up?

Thanks for the help...

@@@@Problem fixed@@@@

I used the USB I created with SL to boot and went into disk utilities.

From here I discovered that the volume was corrupted, so I had that fixed.

rebooted, and found my wifi card to be recognised as Airport Extreme.

Default Use Ubuntu 9.10 - 05-06-2010, 09:23 PM

I was unsuccessful using Ubunto 10.04 LTS to do this flashing. Using Ubuntu 9.10 (I used desktop version) worked fine.

Also, if you are going to change the regulation region and country as well, it's easiest to do it in the same command as changes the vendor and product id's. Otherwise you need to change the command or you will simply over-write your other changes.

Accounting for the differences between System Profiler in 10.5 and 10.6, it appears my 4312 now shows just as the Airport card in my G4 PB12".

They changed domain names, the new address is here: Rebranding Broadcom 802.11a/b/g/n Cards as Airport | Prasys' Blog

This worked on my card (BCM 4312). Flashed it with the values in the guide from a permanent Ubuntu 10.04 install (I've been trying Linux for the past couple months). One hiccup was the last step where I would get something like
Code:
cp: unsupported operation
The fix was to unload the driver. So, as root
Code:
rmmod b43
Then copy the new firmware to the card. The copying took about 20 seconds for me.

Thank You.

Hi,

Sorry, I thought my earlier post had been deleted.

The information you require can be found by following the link in the previous post #137 above.
