Hi Experts,

I see the BCM chip used in the two different boards remains the same. https://wikidevi.com/wiki/AMPAK_AP6181 

I tied downloading the Banana Pi [AP6181] firmware into the WiCED board [BCM43362] but the WiFi module boot up fails.

In general is there any dependency with firmware across different boards though the underlying BCM module remains the same.

Regards,

Lyf

Hi,

This might be beacuse of the difference in the firmware version. Could you check the version of the firmware of 43362 in your SDK with the one you want to load from Banana pi dev board. This is a problem especially a problem if your using wiced sdk 5.2. Use wl command wl -ver to check for the version of wlan firmware.

Regards,

Vinayak

Why it's a problem if using sdk-5.2?

I was referring to the requirement of additional CLM Blob file issue. But i guess you have already found a workaround.

You are off-topic.

In this thread, it's releated to BCM43362.

However, BCM43362 does not have CLM download feature at all.

Sorry my bad. CLM Blob is for only 4390x, 43364, 43438, 4343W. Thanks for the correction.
