  24. Modify text string for enable UI animation on web UI. Add description. Add translations (some still missing, so they are set to English only).
  25. Fixed issue of overscan control not activated right away when upgrading from an older FW version that does not contain the overscan config feature.
  26. [Google Nexus 4, skipping extremely with local playback] A new SQoS feature has been added to deal with devices that do not interleave encoded audio and video very well in poorer wifi conditions. By default this is enabled, but to disable, set SQOS_ENABLE=0 in /cavium/unsetdefaults, or uboot. Also, SQOS_MODE can be used to set the aggressiveness of the algorithm, SQOS_MODE=1 is less aggressive, while SQOS_MODE=2 will aggressively increase latency and only gradually reclaim latency. SQOS_MODE=2 is the default. SQoS is automatically disabled for Intel and Samsung source devices which have good interleaving, and their own special requirements for keeping latency.
  27. [Logging capability] A new hidden webpage is added for accessing logs and configuring debug output at This is accessed when the dongle is in firmware upgrade mode. It can also be accessed over p2p if you have the correct IP address. In general if an issue is found by a user, they should immediately enter firmware upgrade mode, and provide the Current Log along with any other information they could provide about the failure conditions. The webpage has the Current Log output (500 KB), and the Previous Reboot Log, which stores the previous 500 KB before the last reboot (not power cycle). If the adapter is power cycled without rebooting via webpage it will not save to the Previous Reboot Log. It also has configuration for various debug functions (default all OFF) WFD Log (all RTSP-related logs), NETHD Logs (all control logs), Decoder Latency Logs (latency, interleaving, and SQoS) , Output Syslog on serial console too (may be some performance hit if enabled), Syslog Level: Global control on level of logs stored in the log. Default ALL. Kernel Log Level: Control on driver and kernel logs stored in the log. Default Errors.
    NOTE: tail_8.21 is used instead of busybox’s "tail" command to handle syslogd’s moving of files."

  29. [widi Gen 4] Failing to scan with BCM4352.
  30. [Motorola Droid] Failure to connect to Motorola Droid Ultra and Moto X.

    • No CR: Update operation channel in p2p invitation phase.
