Topic: How to repair Broadcom BCM4329 SPROM crc?

The content of this topic has been archived on 6 May 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Im attempt to to change Device ID from 4329 to 4329 on Broadcom BCM4329 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter Cardbus inside the Netgear WNR834B v1 running dd-wrt.v24 beta. new Device ID ok but b43_srom write crc on wrong place and can not read whole/full/complete SPROM.

Any tools for linux or windows to fix SPROM or force the driver load

Im found temporary solution

Howto:
Im thinked about if sdram_init, sdram_config, boardtype, boardnum, boardrev, boardflags and .. is copy from CFE to nvram so why not test to put "srom" in nvram.
veeeeeee the worked the WLAN led light up and the WLAN works
