this also seems to work

activate/deactivate data or deactivate/activate data.

Hi guys,
The wifi problem is killing me, every day when I come back from work the phone is freezing when wifi is turned on. I run on official ICS 4.0.3 update via kies air. Exist a solution, ROM or workaround to fix it? I've tried all the advice from this topic but without success, every time need to reboot the phone it's frustrating for me.

It's so stupid, what is the advantage of a powerfull device when it contains bugs like this?

SiyahKernel fixed it . Just install over CF-ROOT with odin.
@htcmagic: A couple of months later I thought I would check if you still deem Siyah v3.1.2 to have fixed the issue? Many thanks.

Default Wifi started working again

I had the same wifi freezing issue in my galaxy S2 i9100..at first i simply cant turn on the wifi..i have tried all options mentioned here..finally i came to know the heat related issue that burned the register across wifi chip and bla bla..i have no wifi in my s2 for a month..last week i managed to dual boot my s2..surprisingly follwing things happened..

1.I can turn on the wifi only when battery level is below 10%..then it continues to work
2.Every morning i woke up it cant be turned on..and i tried to discharge the battery to below 10 % and then it connects..
3.Wifi only connects on Resurrection Remix ROM but not on Stock ICs which is my secondary Rom
4.If it is hardware issue..then why it connects now.
5.It connects and disconnects i use software like fix my wifi https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lynx.fixmywifi
FXR wifi fix and rescue https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...1vcmVmaXhlciJd


Can someone helps me about this issue..why wifi connectivity is related to battery level and only connects to RR remix ROM??

(sorry for Bad English)

That is correct. Install any of the 4.0.4 and wifi toggle works smoothly like it should be.

It's not true, runing ICS stock rom 4.0.4, and still same problem, at some people even with JB 4.1.2 - same problem, read bellow,

http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=28036

For some people this app helped,

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...b3JlZml4ZXIiXQ..

i installed it, so we'll see.... I'm using ICS 4.0.4 last 3-4 months, never had problems with freezeing at activating WiFi, but at once before 1-2 days it started to freeze my phone when i enable WiFi... I don't know what could cause this problem, some people wrote updating many apps at once, or unistalling, or whatever, i have about 150-160 installed apps, so if number of apps is problem or some app, there can be reason in my case...

However bad bug my Samsung!
