Hello. I've been flashing/installing customs roms all day..
I can't seem to solve my problem. Wi-fi wont connect in any of 4.4.x custom roms(slimkat,paranoid..etc)
however it works fine on 4.2.2, 4.4.2 stock and LRS rom
full packaged rom seems to be only solution for me.

heres what i did
My device came with 4.4.2.
I downgraded to 4.2.2
rooted
used loki/twrp package to install twrp 2.6.3.2
wiped data/cache/dalvik
installed custom rom
boots device fine but wifi wont connect(i do see list of wifi network)

tried following
higher version of twrp(s)
tried 4.2.2/4.4.2 flashable bootstacks
tried different type of roms from infected website
tried flashing custom roms after flashing 4.2.2 + 4.4.2 flashable stock roms

none seems to be working.

=( are there any other steps i need to do?
perhaps missing correct kernels?

thanks in advance.

What model gpad do you have? It looks like a v500. Sometimes a factory reset after ROM install helps. Does android settings show the WiFi MAC address?

If it does the kernel at least detects the WiFi hardware on a basic level.

I do know that slimkat after installing seems to require a reboot for things to settle. However as i recall that was for some of the sensors not wifi. Did you reboot after install?

Also did you set the WiFi region in the advanced part of the WiFi settings?

v500
did reset/reboot still doesnt work.
mac address/region information(changed to us/can/europe for test) is there.

i did notice that there is no bluetooth address however i did install many other custom rom.
this isn't the only rom with the problem.

I am using a newer version of recovery than you are. I will have to look around and see what I did differently if I get a chance...
