Radio is generic unknown and device not active

Failed to turn on WiFi at my Redmi ax6 (IPQ807x). This happened when I try to use the firmware compiled by my own, but using the firmware provided by OpenWRT org works well. How to fix it? Thx

added the same packages to your build ?

That is not much to go by but I'd look at the dependencies included in the Redmi az and ensure you have them all installed on your homebrew.

I just changed some code in the ath driver and mac80211, and compile it at the root dir openwrt/

How is that working out for ya?

Why change any dependencies? Just use them all. They are called dependencies because the device drivers depend on them

It seems you already know the cause of your problem, and how to fix it
