    Some useful ko modules for 3.0.36+ kernel based ROMS

    Attached is a collection of ko modules (auth_rpcgss.ko, cifs.ko, lockd.ko, md4.ko, nfs.ko, sunrpc.ko and tun.ko)

    I've tested some of these on my cube u30gt 2 and they work well. To make use of the follow this procedure.
    • download the zip and copy the .ko into system/lib/modules
    • use insmod from a terminal to insert the the modules and check with lsmod
    • test the new functionality
    • to save having to use insmod after each reboot use an init.d script to load the modules at startup

    Thanks to rrileypm and Leolas for acquiring/compiling these modules.

    Worked example

    I want to get privateinternetaccess (vpn) and access to cifs network shares. For the vpn access I need tun.ko and for cifs cifs.ko and md4.ko.
    1. First job is to get the files downloaded onto my tablet
    2. using esfileexplorer i've
      1. made system writeable
      2. copied the ko files to system/lib/modules
      3. checked the permissions on the newly copied modules
    3. started a terminal session and entered the following

    Code:
    su
    lsmod
    insmod system/lib/modules/cifs.ko
    insmod system/lib/modules/md4.ko
    insmod system/lib/modules/tun.ko
    lsmod
    Each of these lines ran without error, the lsmod lines show the loaded modules before and after the insmod lines. I then verified that i could now access privateinternetaccess and configure and access cifs shares.

    The final step is to create a file in system/etc/init.d to load these modules on startup
    1. using esfileexplorer
      1. add a new file (I named it 000loadmodules, as I want too load these modules before carrying out any other init.d processing)
      2. open the file as text and enter the following and save.

    Code:
    #!system/bin/sh
    insmod system/lib/modules/cifs.ko
    insmod system/lib/modules/md4.ko
    insmod system/lib/modules/tun.ko
    All that remains to do is to reboot and check that my vpn and cifs shares still work.

    Hope this of some use.

      Hi! Thanks for those module! I ha ve tried the tun.ko successfully but I can't succeed in connecting a cifs mount point even with the module cifs installed.
      What app are you using to mount your network path? Any help would be great.
      I have a u30gt2 using your latest ROM. I succeed in mounting that same network share on many other devi ces.

      Thanks

        Try using cifs manager from playstore

          I realized that I was not using your kernel, that was probably the reason why I couldn'tget it right. I switched back to your OC Kernel and it is great.
          Thank!

            By the way, could you please give me a little bit of details on what those modules are? I know the tun and cifs but I have no idea about tthe others.

              Honest answer, I don't know, however Google is my friend so a quick Google of sunrpc.ko says this and a few of the others required for NFS support.

                Interesting 900, There was a discussion about implementing tun.ko in the cs968 thread. Maybe I should use your init.d script for my ROM, too.

                  if you have init.d support then its an easy fix.

                    He he! Faire enough! I tried google too, but I couldn't get satisfying results.
