Besides the MAC address, there are other parameters in the SPROM where
Broadcom accounts for the specific amplifiers and radio of a device.
When you wrote the SPROM for board A into board B, these were also
overwritten. Fortunately, there are not many of these. The list includes
the antenna gain, the pa0bx parameters, the max power out, and the idle
I am assuming that you do not have a copy of the original contents of
the SPROM for board B. I have saved copies of all the boards that have
been rewritten All of them have 0x3C for the maximum power out, and
0x3E for the idle TSSI target, thus I think we can rule out those
parameters. I do see only two different sets of parameters for the pa0bx
parameters as follows:
Board pa0b0 pa0b1 pa0b2
Your A 0x12A0 0xFB77 0xFEAC
Other 0x 119A 0xFB93 0xFEA5
The following SPROM content has the MAC of your board B and the other
pa0bx values. Please try it.
