    When i type:
    Code:
    make clean
    make menuconfig
    shown all usb wireless drivers (rtl8187, etc...) but if i type:

    Code:
    make clean
    make shinano_sirius_defconfig
    make menuconfig
    not shown usb wireless drivers

    Why?

    Wel, for activate Realtek and others usb wireless drivers, must be activate "Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack (mac80211)" as it says offensive-security github page:
    https://github.com/offensive-securit...ing-the-Kernel

    Cool, I'm glad you figured it out. Surely this will help others in the future.

    How would I go about adding support for rt5372 in the latest nethunter build? I can see the device in lsusb but it doesn't show up in ifconfig, iwconfig or airmon-ng, i suspect it need support in the kernel. Can anyone direct me in the right path?

    Yeah, read the thread... that link the OP post is really useful for this.
