    Just last night I started getting the unable to scan for wifi networks message about every 5 seconds when trying to connect to wifi in the wifi settings menu.
    I hope this is not a dreaded error message that means I will have to do yet another factory reset...

    I doubt i changed any settings or did anything different, I always just turned it on and it would connect fairly quick.

    Yup, a simple long press of the power button and hitting restart got me back in business.

    Troubleshooting order of operations:
    Restart
    Battery pull
    Factory reset, probably. Lol
