Couple of problems
« on: November 30, 2010, 05:55:01 AM »
Hello and good god I love this port, but I cannot seem to get Wifi to work. I viewed the recent post a guy had maybe two threads below mine and that didnt help, a search didnt help so I have come to the registration and posting part.

My phone is an Iphone 3g jailbroken with redsnow on 3.1.2 and I installed Idroid and Iboot via bootlace. I checked to make sure Wifi was enabled in def tools and from what I did it was enabled(Clicked devtools>connectivity>enable wifi). When I start the wifi it starts the scanning process then says unable to scan for wifi networks. I have posted as much information off the top of my head as I can, if you need more please feel free to ask.

EDIT: I am currently reinstalling Idroid to see if there was an installation error due to an attempted sync in the middle of downloading or just simply an installation error.

Also a link to getting Gapps onto my phone would be very appreciated lol.

I had the same problem (enabling my wifi radio would always fail and say it was unable to scan for networks, even after dozens of tries) with 1.0.3.  I had read some where they may have been an issue with the wifi firmware in 1.0.3 so I just waited for to be released.  Once it was released, I upgraded, but still had the same wifi issue above.  I decided to completely remove idroid using bootlace and reinstall it with bootlace.  This fixed my issue of not being able to scan and I could see wireless networks. 

However, I have been unable to use any of the access-points yet.  I have a Dlink b/g/n with WPA2 at home and I can connect to it, enabled my pass-phrase and then event get an IP address from the access point.  It says I have excellent signal in the wifi menu under settings->wifi, but the small wifi indicator at the top of the status bar always seems to show zero signal.  When I open the browser, I get a failure to load the pages.  I have turned the radio on and off several times and continue to get connected fine, get an IP and have "excellent" signal.  But the small wifi indicator on the status bar continues to have zero signal and I can not connect to any websites.

I will continue to play with it, as I have read several posts and have seen documentation on this site saying that wifi is buggy at this time.  This is a great project and I can't believe how far they have come already and will continue to look forward to new releases of idroid.  The setup via bootlace is amazing, even my 8 year old can do this now.

WiFi has not been fixed since the first release by planetbeing in April.

And the Google Apps thing is a legal issue, that's why it's not included and no definite/official tutorial is given.

For further info, please check out the FAQ and User Manual on how to do some of these things. They are on the main Forum page (click the orange Home button). A link to a somewhat working Google apps tutorial is in the FAQ/User Manual.
