    My huawei ascend was recently rooted and about a week after I did that, I decided to take out some bloatware sucha s the metro pcs easy wifi app. And now every time I try to turn my wifi on, nothing happens. I tried turning it on through the settings and even through the power manager switch but only the easy wifi app seemed to turn it on. :thinking:

    I tried unrooting my phone but it didnt help. from what ive read, im guessing its a hardware problem but Im not sure.:thinking:

    Has anyone ever had this problem? Should I take it back and demand a new one?:thinking:

    Well I used to use Wifi Analyzer. As soon as I would start the app it would turn on the wifi automatically but now when I try using the app it wont turn on. Ive even tried hard resetting the phone but nothing seems to work.
