Question [Q] (Verizon S4 NC5) No Wifi with Echoe v29 ROM using SS

I will start by saying that I am a long time lurker on these forums and they have helped me through pretty much all of my phone mishaps and accomplishments so thank you guys. I am sorry if this has been answered before but I can't find any solution that works so I'll throw everything out there and hope some generous stranger with some free time can help me out or show me what I am doing wrong.

What I have:
Verizon Galaxy S4
- Model Number: SCH-I545
- Android Version: 4.4.2
- Baseband Version: I545VRUFNC5

What I have done to the device:
- Rooted via Towelroot
- Safestrap 3.72 installed
- Echoe v29 flashed using Safestrap

The problem:
When clicking on the wifi button it turns green for a second then gets grayed out.

What I have tried to fix this problem
I flashed the modem.bin file using Odin with no luck, then flashed the modem.bin and NON-HLOS.bin files (found on this post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2487298 and I dowladed I545VRUFNC5_modem_apnhlos.zip from this) then flashed via Odin, still no wifi. I then completely wiped the phone and re-flashed the stock firmware, re-rooted, and re-installed safestrap. I then did a factory reset and installed the Echoe ROM, then the modem and NON-HLOS files all using Safestrap. Same outcome. I then repeated this but flashed the modem and NON-HLOS before I flased the ROM. Nothing.

Any suggestions? Am I missing something?

Like the layout lol everyone should post their questions like this... anyway with Safestrap, you need to flash kernel modules right after you flash a rom, before the initial boot. If you don't do this, then WiFi doesn't work. You need the modules that match your bootloader, here's the link for the ones for NC5: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23486521113837640 (thanks to Surge)

Sometimes, for some people on certain roms, those modules still don't do the trick. In those cases, this zip seems to work for them:https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23487008491963696 , if you're still not getting WiFi, try this: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23487008491963692 (thanks to Gigilie)

Haha, it just makes sense to post something that is easier to read than just text. Anyways, that was it! Thank you, you are a life saver. I'll make sure to keep a copy on my SD card from now on just in case.
