I'm done it and have it working, but can't seem to get wifi working. I pack the bcm4329.ko in the /system/lib/modules folder, signed it, and flashed. Cant get it working. I've heard a few people here that have already done this, and am curious if you could help?

Only thing that ever worked for me was using the kitchen and rebuilding the entire rom

You need to split the boot.img and pull the zimage from that. Also, the bcm from /system/lib/modules.

if you used the zimage and not the boot.img and the bcm and sequins from the ROM you pulled the kernel from, you should have no issue. The modules are kernel specific and control WiFi.

I'm sorry, sequins? I unpacked the boot.img in the kitchen, and re-packed the zImage into a new boot.img using the ramdisk from the kernel the ROM I'm using came with. Then used the the AnyKernel-updater, and bcm4329.ko from /system/lib/modules from the same ROM I used the ramdisk from.

Could someone post a zip of Ziggy's kernel that you can flash in recovery, for us noobs?
actually no, he's explicity requested that nobody do that. He's being greedy with this source code.

Ok so I got it to work with WiFi finally. I must have been mixing up the bcm4329.ko files. But the whole reason for doing this was to correct the camera orientation in video chat. That didn't do it. Should it have?

I'm on the latest Shift3dS3ns3, and also tried on Uber PR3
What was wrong with the video chat in uber pr3? Was it upside down? Mine has always been right in uber pr3.

Yea when using Skype the other user says I'm upside down when I'm holding my phone in portrait, and when using G-Talk it is 90 degress counter clockwise when holding in portrait.

Ignore my mod status for a minute. Consider me an average Joe for this post. Rootzwiki's official opinion on this specific topic is not what I'm posting here but more a personal observation...

See this partial quote (source):

The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works.

The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
Of course there is much more to the GPL than what I've quoted here, so this may be taking it out of context. However, I did want to point this out to anybody who is curious what the GPL says about redistribution. Does this mean that you can redistribute Ziggy's kernel without fear of retribution? I dunno, go get yourself a lawyer. But please educate yourself on the GPL if you want to be informed.

That link is a great way to begin said education - check it out!
