Wireless on Cubox-i4pro with Volumio v1.4

Has anyone out there had any luck getting wifi to work using the new v1.4 on their Cubox-i? It’s almost as if the kernel modules are missing or havent been compiled. I don’t see anything in dmesg either. Version 1.2beta worked like a treat. For now, I’ve had to revert back to the old version.

Any help would be appreciated, I’m anxious to try out the new improvements and features. :smiley:

Well, at least I figured out the cause. It seems as though the broadcom wifi kernel modules haven’t been compiled on version 1.4, cubox-i release. :frowning:

Old version 1.2beta:

Hi blueroom,

i confirm that i have the exact same problem as you.
That’s too bad as i can not use my Cubox-i with a wired connection. It means that i can not enjoy Volumio on my Cubox-i since i bought it :frowning:
This was however on top on my wish list for the new 1.4 release

At rank number 2 on my wish list i had the package dependencies that are broken since Volumio 1.3 and that prevent using apt to install some new software
I need this fixed to be able to stream the artwork contained in my mp3s’ ID3 Tags to the mobile MPD remote i’m using.

@Michelangelo : if you brought a solution to these two issues you could not make me happier (and others for sure) :wink:


Hi Blueroom,

When you wrote :

Do you mean the official 1.2beta version released by Michelangelo ? Or the modified 1.2 version made available by lstein in this post ?


Those broadcom wifi kernel modules that are missing, are they supposed to make the internal wifi chipset work, or do you need them for an external wifi USB dongle ?

I’m desperately trying to have a wifi connection working with my Cubox-i4pro and Volumio (whatever the version, 1.2 would be a fine at least) :cry:

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Oops, I forgot to mention that. You are correct, The version with the working wifi was the updated version released by Michelangelo.

Also, If I remember correctly; instead of using the GUI to enter the wireless passphrase/etc, I think I added the settings manually to the file /etc/network/interfaces like so:

root@volumio:/home/volumio# cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "SSID_NAME"

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Also, because I’m using a USB DAC, I had to use the following solution by Bearington:

if you use wpa_passphrase it will generate a key for you to use instead of having your plain text password in the clear…go look at the wifi issues with RasberryPi and see if you can get it resolved.

I have the same setup. The wifi option does not work. I enter the ssid and the password but the wlan0 interface shows “no interface present”.

Hi Blueroom,

Did Michelangelo provide any version that had wifi working on Cubox ?
I thought the only version was Istein’s ? And unfortunately this one doesn’t work that well for me.

Can you please point me the Michelangelo 1.2 version with wifi working ?

Thank you

You can try this out: dropbox.com/s/eqvz9s08thsnf … 024.tar.gz

Volumio 1.4 with the latest 3.10 kernel (including wireless driver). Some other things may be missing though.
I have a Cubox-i1 so wireless and other stuff have not been tested.

Please note that Airplay is configured to output on hw2:0, if you use the Cubox HDMI or SPDIF out, it will not work.
You need to edit /etc/init.d/shairport and change it according to your environment (try “sudo aplay -l” to get the correct hardware id)


The new image does not work for me. No WiFi device found.
CuBox-4pro. Volumio 1.4 with new image.

Guys, on my cubox-i4 wireless works. So, it means mine has a different wireless adapter. To make it working I need your help:
I need to know which wireless module does the Cubox-i use.
Please paste the output of:


And dmesg

Please note that you don’t need to change anything to make shairport work. It will just use the device you selected as output

I got wireless working. :slight_smile:

Big thanks to M1024 for posting the 3.10 kernel version. I’d like to know how to compile my own as it’s quite a bit different then on x86 based distro’s. if anyone can point me to a doc or howto on this, I’d be more than happy to rtfm.

That being said, This is what I had to do to get wireless working on mine.

If after updating to M1024’s version which includes kernel 3.10. Check for the following in dmesg:

brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_get_fw: fail to request firmware brcm/brcmfmac4330-sdio.txt (-2)
brcmfmac: brcmf_bus_start: brcmf_sdbrcm_bus_init failed -2
brcmfmac: brcmf_sdio_probe: dongle is not responding
brcmfmac: brcmf_ops_sdio_probe: F2 error, probe failed -19...

then verify the following files exist:

If they don’t, then create them, here are mine:

Hope this helps.

Also, for the record, I love Volumio. Thanks for all your hard hard work on this. :smiley:

I’ll do it this night, once back home from work.

Hi Michelangelo,

thank you for helping the ones, like me, who are struggling with wifi on their cubox Volumio setup.
Some information about my setup :

  • i have a cubox-i4pro
  • a volumio 1.4 (the official version released by yourself) freshly installed and not modified at all

Just let me know if you want me to run those same commands from a version of Volumio i can connect to wifi with like the ones posted :

Nope, shairport works straight with the selected output. No need to change the shairport init script. It is invoked via the WebUI.

Ok, found the issue. My Cubox-i uses a different wi-fi chips. Newer cuboxes uses BCM4330. So, I’m going to recompile the kernel. I will also use an universal bootloader to support all the Cubox-i range.
Stay tuned and thanks for the feedbacks!

Thanks michelangelo! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. (ie, further information, testing, etc…) :slight_smile:
