You can download it and follow the updates here.

You can also download and install WiFix Manager from Google Play (Make sure to rate the application.)


It's pretty easy; first of all you should root your device.

Then install WiFixManager.apk.

Start WiFix Manager from applications menu and tap Install WiFix (allow SuperUser permission.)

Once installed, you're ready to go. The application will change the country code when needed. You can also invoke it manually by dialing *#94349# (*#WIFIX#) and pressing the call button (don't forget to press call button; it's not a MSL code).


You can check for updates and install them via WiFix Manager.

Known Issues

Sometimes when you reboot your phone with WiFi turned on, you won't have internet access (you can't open webpages, download files etc.) even though it says it's already connected to your AP.
This issue can be fixed by turning WiFi Off and On or dialing *#WIFIX# as described before.

For ROM Cookers

By placing WiFix.apk in /system/app you'll have a WiFix enabled ROM.
If you're publishing that ROM, please include a link to this thread

Newer fix by XDA Member HTCZ715E

As of today, most of the manufacturers (including HTC and Sony) solved this Wi-Fi issue with their ROMs. Fortunately, there's no need for WiFix anymore.

For those who still have issues with custom ROMs and WiFix, try this.

Like many other users i have a problem getting wifi to work on my stock (TTT) samsung galaxy s4 i9500 in my country. I used to solve this kind of issues with Wifix manager from user fardjad but it seems to work only till android 4.3. User fardjad seems to have stopped working on this software. I have tried multiple scripts found here but none worked for me. I was wondering if any of you had a solution for this, or at least post the source code for wifix manager so that me or another user can have the chance to fix it an then upload it again for everyone. It would be much apreciated. Thanks in advance

Worked like magic!
After flashing my HTC T-Mobile G2 with Jelly Baby ROM, my phone couldn't detect any AP. It was such a pain for so beautiful a ROM to have no WiFi connectivity! This app .....
