WiFi (NOT WORKING)

The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 has the same chipset as the Galaxy SIII, and the wifi module (bcm4334) is the same. However, it still doesn't work. See post below for more information:

i've been trying to get this working all day but couldn't find a solution.

basically, I'm trying to use the i9305 firmware with my galaxy tab which shares the same chipset. I keep getting this error every time I start wpasupplicant via sudo /etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant start. What I've tried so far:
- replacing the nvram with my nvram
- replacing the firmware with my firmware
- changing the driver from wext to wl80211 like in the initrc
- setting CONFIG_WLAIBSS=y in the kernel config
- rebooting
- reflashing the rootfs and kernel

USB OTG

USB OTG should work out of the box. To use keyboards and mice, do sudo apk add xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-mouse

Notes/To Do

The Tab 3 8.0 has the same chipset as the Samsung_Galaxy_SIII_LTE_(samsung-i9305) (Exynos 4412), but the SIII uses a Quad variant.

Only lt01wifi/T310 has been tested so far. I might make builds for T311 and T315 once I get T310 working.

XFCE ONLY:The device indicates when it's charging, but the actual batery percentage readings don't work.

Hardware buttons work, they just require triggerhappy on xfce. Back and menu buttons are in /dev/input/event1, home, volume and power buttons are in /dev/input/event0.

Audio should work using these instructions. The tablet uses TAB3_WM1811 as the name.
