Broadcom BCM4312 in Chromium Vanlla by Hexxeh.


Okay, so I had been wanteding to try out Chromium OS for a while, but I didn't want to make all the changes to my system like needed. That's when a friend told me about Chrome Flow, which make's a bootable USB of it. Since Downloads for Flow were down, I had to get Vanlla which is the nightly build with no changes. I got it set up on my USB knowing that it would most likely NOT work with my wireless card. I tried to do the same thing I did to get internet in Ubuntu working, which was putting the extracted version of This in my /lib/firmware and that worked. I tried to do that but it still isn't noticing any networks, when I know there is atleast 1, mine. Any does anybody know what to do? I can do more in Linux then when I first was getting the internet working in Ubuntu, so there may be a better solution. Thanks for any hel.

Oh, and if there isn't any way to get the internet working, then is there a way to get it off the USB? I don't know how I would because there are 3 different USB devices showing when I plug it in, so I don't know which one I would format. Thank you.
