Ethernet adapter

Added by Mzee Mzee over 5 years ago

Hello,
I would like to use my Samsung Galaxy S3 with Replicant and an USB-Ethernet-Adapter. Is this possible? If yes: How could I use it? Thanks a lot in adavance for your replies.

If you build and load the correct kernel modules, it could work at kernel-level. You would probably still have to configure the interface manually, because the Android framework and Settings are not at all designed for such modularity.

Any ideas or hints how I could achieve this?

That's mostly it. If you don't know what I'm talking about here I suggest you learn about it if you want to get this done.
The driver to build depends on the adapter, I suggest you look at which module is in use when you plug-in to your computer, then build the same module on the Replicant kernel for the Galaxy S 3 (I9300): smdk4412 with the cyanogenmod_i9300_defconfig. Then load the module and use ifconfig (preferably from busybox) to set the interface up. Perhaps there is even a way to get it to do dhcp.
