Hi guys I'm hoping someone can help me with some detailed information or point me in the right direction to a tutorial.
I own an old M8 variant which is actually a pretty decent box, its spec is
Cortex A9 quad core @2gh
Realtek RTL8188ETV WiFi
I'm currently using the build provided by drieschel from here
It works amazingly smooth and fast, i have a few little issues but the one I want to try sort first is the WiFi not working.
This openelec build provided by ipodtouchdude here
Openelec 5.95.3 Beta 2 ENY M8 2G (Square) With amcodec boblightd support - FreakTab.com
Was the last "elec" that the WiFi worked.
I've duel booted my laptop with win 7 and Linux mint last night, I followed your wiki up to the point it said to add the libreelec.TV repo and instead I cloned drieschel's and then I cloned ipodtouchdude's. Looking about between the 2 (not that I know what I'm looking at or for) I come across a drivers folder and found the RTL8188E folder, in the libreelec from drieschel the folder contained a single file possibly named something like package.MX (sorry I'm not at my laptop to check), in the openelec one by ipodtouchdude it had the same file but also an addition folder called patchs that contained a file. This I assume is why my WiFi works with his build.
My question is how do I add that patch folder to the libreelec build and is that the only thing I would need to do to get WiFi working? then if I managed to some how do it how do I go about turning it into a bootable SD card image?
Any and all help and info is greatly appreciated
Many thanks and all the best
