    We thank you a lot for developing many Custom ROMs and made our phone really really nice.

    But have u noticed the WiFi error problem on the custom roms?

    Any of you please try to get a fix for this problem
    ,because many newbies like me can't flash a custom ROM and are facing a serious trouble with this error.

    Awaiting a reply soon.

    Thank you. :thinking:

    What wifi problem are you having exactly? I've run multiple different roms and versions on different phones and never had a wifi problem?

    when wifi is turnd-on. "Error" is displayed and wifi is not turned on.

    there is a hot fix (dail *#*#526#*#*), but this too fails sometimes.

    Also posted this in another thread, but I was facing the same problems with various custom roms over the past 24 hours.

    I had the very same issue:
    - Flashing ROM
    - Install all of my apps and set back configuration manually
    - Wifi seemed to work
    - After half an hour, the Wifi was turned off and showed "error" when trying to turn on

    My solution (after reading this thread), which seems to work for at least the past hour now, lies within the rights on the wpa_supplicants.conf (located in /data/misc/wifi).
    As I had manually pushed that file from my old configuration to my new installation, the file was placed as 'root:root' and was chmod-ed as 0700. I've chown-ed it to 'wifi.wifi' and chmod-ed it 0777, and the Wifi started working again.

    Good luck!
