this solution is obsolete, if you card is hardblocked by rfkill you can use gpio to activate wifi adapter:
sudo su echo 191 > /sys/class/gpio/export echo out > /sys/class/gpio/gpio191/direction echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio191/value
Since (for now) Jetson TK1 does not correctly support rfkill for wifi card, we can try to hack hardware.
Tested with .
- mask pin 20 on bottom side wifi card
- compile kernel with required modules and add firmware (if required)
- well done :) wifi is working
- Tested wifi cards:
Working adapters with mask pin 20:
- Atheros ATH-AR5B95
Not working adapters with mask pin 20:
Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230- something wrong with my adapter or bug in kernel
