@Werner the bug I reported is related to the in-built wifi card on banana m1+ board; its not 3rd party hw. The issue which is happening also on 3rd party hw was attached onlyfor your information that it might be kernel or also user space bug.

This is forum - you are welcome to talk about, but demanding support is a bad idea. You can report bugs here but only if you pay commercial price for fixing it & if we agree / are free to accept a deal or if you will be the one fixing it.

By who? Why? Several years ago (i would estimate about 5 years) we have concluded its not possible without breaking others or without severe framework customisation / rework ... This is when incompetent people are making hardware and when you expect software can fix all those mistakes in this chaotic world. And you also believe we have to waste our private money for that. Attitude. Open source is not slavery.

It happens that I was fixing some other problem regarding A20 boards (our common problems) and I have checked if wireless is working ...
