No Wi-Fi after rom upgrade

    Previously running stock 4.4.2, rooted, S-on, with TWRP.

    I kept getting notifications about upgrading so attempted to flash the stock recovery extracted from the upgrade file, in order to allow this. Unfortunately the stock recovery would not boot so I have returned to TWRP.

    I have now upgraded rom to the Android Revolution HD 4.4.4 via TWRP, but now my Wi-Fi won't turn on at all. Any suggestions as to what to do?

    Your problem is that you haven't updated your firmware. The ARHD thread is littered with posts on the same subject. You will need to restore your nandroid (you did take a nandroid backup didn't you) to go back to 4.4.2 or get s-off so you can flash firmware to match 4.4.4 ROM. Or flash stock recovery, and take the OTA but it seems you have problems with that.

    Here's what I did, in case anyone else comes across this thread who is having the same issue:

    1. S-OFF using Sunshine. It's a cost of $25 but I was planning to S-OFF anyway so I stumped up. It may be possible to do the following without S-OFF but I haven't tried it, so do your own reading and attempt at own risk.

    2. Set supercid by booting to fastboot, connecting to computer with adb/fastboot tools loaded and running following command:

    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot oem writecid 11111111
    3. Downloaded firmware appropriate to my rom from here.

    4. Followed instructions to flash firmware from here. It's not very clear from that list but, if you are S-OFF, you do not appear to need to lock bootloader, so you can skip steps 1, 2 and 10.

    And done! Everything seems to be working just fine now.

    Sounds like you need to get firmware updated first, before flashing a later ROM. Presume you have fastboot tools already since you flashed TWRP, so with bootloader in fastboot can you run

    fastboot getvar all

    And post the results up but scrub out your IMEI and serial numbers.
