    So I went to turn on my wifi today and noticed that the quick settings app took longer than normal to activate it. I went into the full settings menu under Wireless and it said 'unable to start wifi'. Picture:

    Has anyone else had this problem, and know of a way to fix it? I've tried the obvious(reboot, battery removal, full restore to a time when it worked) to no avail.

    Interesting. Never seen that message. I'm guessing it's a hardware failure. (Since you did all the obvious things to cope with software failures.)

    Well, that's the way hardware failures are...Sorta like my engine worked three days ago but today it has a hole in a piston.

    TPIWW info on what OS version you're running, whether you've "rooted," and whether you're using a "ROM."

    I've been having this problem too.
    When switching around roms sometimes it just gives out. Not sure why it's been doing this gonna do a nandroid restore to see if that fixes it.

    But I've been assured repeatedly on this board that there is no risk whatsoever to installing custom roms. So I'm sure it couldn't be that.
