Just a point ... why modules? - the jffs file already has the modules
installed - you only need the module step if you are changing from the
matching kernel so need to change them.
Saves a couple of steps and the heartache of trying to install the
modules. Suggestion, if you really want the modules - put them on the
sd card using the old system before flashing :)
Sorry cant help with wifi - I find that mokoconnect and similar gui's
are too flaky - manual is more reliable.
