    Yes, this is the likely outcome of flashing an OTA on a rooted handset. Inform him he needs to flash the RUU your phone originally came with to get it working again

    It could be if he has updated without a gold card installed in the phone,it happened to me when i first debranded my phone,i got an ota update forgot to put the gold card in and when the update was complete the wifi was not working.

    hes probably broken other stuff too if he accepted it when rooted
    it breaks wifi if there is no gold card but it can break other stuff as the signatures are borked

    did you advertise it as rooted?

    Is it branded UK orange by any chance?

    Going by previous posts they are with T-Mobile so I'd assume it's either unbranded or T-Mobile branded (an early Desire user like myself)

    Needs a new radio flashed, from the sounds of it.

    Best bet is just to get the RUU that matches your ROM / Carrier and just recover from there.
