Pi4 wifi
« on: November 27, 2019, 10:13:50 PM »
It seems that there is almost zero information about the wireless chipset for the Pi4 on the internet, at least that I could find after more than an hour of searches.  Ultimately, I decided to etch Raspbian onto a card and put it in a Pi4 and checked out dmesg. 

Raspberry Pi 4 uses the brcmfmac43455-sdio driver.  I copied the driver from Raspbian and put onto my card with piCore 11.0alpha1a.  Put the piCore card back in the Pi and now I have wifi!

Worth noting that I had to also reconstruct the wireless-KERNEL.tcz file to make this happen as well.

In any case, I just wanted to verify that wifi on Pi4 works in the new piCore alpha for anyone else trying to do this.
