    My wifi no longer works. When I go to settings>wifi, it just says error. Anyone have any idea what's going on? I could be wrong but I feel like this started when I flashed a new kernel. Any help would be very appreciated!

    Flash another kernel, I had kernel 1.92 when I had that problem and went back to extrem.

    Nope, not working. I've flashed between extreme and battery saver. I use kernel manager to flash, and I've got cache and delvik cache wipe turned on. Can it be that they're both imoseyon kernels? I'm pretty sure others use them without wifi issues though. Any other ideas?

    9 times out of 10 it's a kernel with that error. try a stock kernel to be sure.

    I had the same problem but can't tell you if
    Switching back to bamf 1.6.2 remix helped it or solved
    My problem happened when I was
    Running kernel extreme or 1.92 with
    ROM bamf 1.6.3.remix.

    I later restored my prev settings wich
    Was bamf 1.6.2 remix and sure enough its fixed and no problem yet.

    I now have WiFi again. What did I do? Removed that crap of an app kernel manager. Restarted and I'm able to search for and connect to WiFi. Networks again.

    Kernal Mgr is causing the issue. Flash the Kernal through ROM Manager

    With as many posts I've seen on this both here and xda I'm really surprised there's not a fix for this. I wiped all info three times and did a hard reset. When I did that, I had WiFi. I then installed a clean Rom with a blank SD card in my phone and lost the ability to connect to WiFi. I did bamf as well as viruses Rom.
    still no go.

    It was definitely Kernel Manager for me. I couldn't get my wifi to work. Then I rebooted into recovery and reinstalled the same Kernel manually. Wifi worked fine after that.

    I called Verizon & after explaining to them that I had pulled the battery and done a factory reset and this did not resolve the issue they are overnighting me a new phone. :)

    I ended up sending mine in friday to be replaced with a new one or fixed if possible. I dont mind the brand new phone, but I wish it wasnt something I had to go through. Seems like this is a hardware issue eh?
