Question M7 with Unavailable MAC address.

Story goes that this M7 device was flashed to stock 4.3 and it lost Wifi.

The toggle switch is not working.

The phone has ViperOne 6.2.0 ROM installed; same behavior.

Can it be that this was caused by a faulty flash or am I looking at potential physical damage?

I'm willing to try stock RUU files if needed.

Thanks!

Don't you also have to flash a RADIO that is compatible with the ROM you use? Your stock RADIO may not be compatible with ViperONE.

Thanks for the reply.

While I am not saying it's not a radio issue, would you mind to explain how a radio issue could be interfering with Wifi?

And where would I find which radio is compatible with my phone without having to flash a whole new rom? I suppose there are zip files of it that I can flash through recovery?
