As you all know there is a small bug that prevents the wifi from being obtaining addresses and stops at "obtaining IP address" Hence i decided to start a new thread abt how to set up static IP so as the rooting thread does not go off-topic 1.) go to settings>wireless options>wifi settings 2.) now click on the menu button 3.) go to "Advance options" 4.) cick on set up Static IP address NOTE: the steps from here are per wifi specific 5.) enter IP as 192.168.1.65 6.) enter subset mask : 255.255.255.0 7.) default gateway :192.168.1.1 for those of u who cannot figure still run "ipconfig" from a windows pc connected to the wifi network and paste the output.
