    Question Unable to start Wi-Fi

    Hi all,

    I recently noticed that my Wi-Fi won't start ("unable to start wifi"). I have no idea where to even start to debug this. I have my droid OCed to 900 mhz. I was going to use a backup I made in sprecovery but I found that there is none! (I'm also kinda freaking out about that. Should I start from scratch?)

    Does anyone have advice or a thread that answers this? I haven't been able to pin anything down using the search function.

    Thanks ahead!

    Considering you dont have an backup, I'm going to say something got jacked when you did your last flash. Your best bet is to start over from scratch and do it all over again. Sorry I dont have a better suggestion.

    Bummer, I'm really trying hard to avoid that...

    I found this thread... http://www.droidforums.net/forum/hac...d-any-rom.html

    Do I need the WiFi fix? I used evilboot9.img for my OC.

    It's worth a shot, but be prepared to have to wipe it completely if that doesnt work.

    I really dont like that your Nandroid backup isnt there... It just makes me wary of anything else that may or may not work on the phone.

    If thats what "simple nandroid backup" I do have that option.

    The WiFi is the only thing I've noticed that has been not functioning correctly.

    Simple Nandroid backup will take the latest backup and restore automatically.

    Advanced Nandroid backup will allow you to select from any of the backups you have and select which directories you want restored.

    Assuming you didnt use DroidMod, and you didnt manually do a recovery, then yes, you'll be unable to revert to your previous state.

    At this point, backup your important stuff, and start back over from scratch. Sorry dude.

    I used DroidRootHelper...

    Oh well. I'll give the WiFi fix a try and salvage what I can. Thanks again.
