It is impossible. Something went wrong and the file got erased at some point. You SHOULD NOT have to do this again. /persist stays untouched between ROM flashes. Not even using RSD Lite to restore back to 100% stock touches the persist folder.

If you leave it alone, it should stay working forever, unless you somehow delete it. You cannot get it from the factory images...fortunately you were lucky enough to have someone willing to help you and "donate" the file from their phone :P

So Now I have 4 files, plus that lost+found folder that is always there. The other two files, not the .bt or the wlan_nv, permissions are lrwxrwxrwx and system linked to somewhere. Is that correct, the permissions? And from the log, It seemed that the phone tried to download a new WCNSS_qcom_wlan_nv.bin one from somewhere, but failed to do so. Thanks for your help, now these custom roms will actually operate as they should.

Yes, those are the correct permissions. You are all set!

I AM very confused as to why the stock ROM worked for you without the missing file, but it is supposed to be present on every Moto X.

You should be able to change roms all you like and the WiFi should "Persist" (haha)

Just FYI, my /persist folder has this:

data (folder)
lost+found (folder)
omadm (folder) - I believe this is unique to Sprint devices
omadm_cust_database (folder) - also possibly unique to Sprint devices
omadm_database (folder) - another possible Sprint-only folder
prop (folder)
prov (folder
usf (folder)
and then the 4 files I listed earlier

I wonder if you formatted or erased /persist at some point?? Wonder why you don't have all the folders I have...

As long as everything is working, I guess it isn't a problem...strange though...maybe ALL those folders are unique to Sprint devices?

Mine Is a Verizon phone, so that could be why. Also the early versions of twrp may have wiped everything once as it was not offically supported at the time. Explains all those weird Motorola errors I would get when fastbooting ( I fixed those eventually). I hope I don't need any more files, I would need to hunt them down. And now have an official twrp recovery. But thanks anyway.

Well, first you will need to use a file manager to look inside the persist folder, which is located in the root directory. You must have these 4 files:
.bt_nv.bin
WCNSS_qcom_wlan_nv.bin
WCNSS_qcom_wlan_nv_calibration_persist.bin
WCNSS_qcom_wlan_nv_regulatory_persist.bin

If they are there, you should be fine. If you still have a problem, then this solution is not for you.

Please try copying that file into your persist folder, and then changing permissions as I advised in the last post. Reboot and advise if WiFi is working now.


Hello friend!
I'm new here, I'm having the same problem, however I downloaded files from your MOTO X and put it in my folder PERSIST, then I put the Wi-Fi only worked twice. Do not know if it was something wrong that I did more I changed some files in the folder (/ system / etc / firmware / wlan / prima) I replaced the file with the WCNSS_qcom_wlan_nv.bin has PERSIST in the folder ... directory (/ system / etc / firmware / wlan / prima) got the files (WCNSS_CFG.dat, WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini, WCNSS_qcom_wlan_nv.bin), you could make available the files in this directory? Or do you have another suggestion?

Note! There are times that the bluetooth connects any device located not more, then it stops working.

Wifi and bluetooth also not work on Moto X XT 1049 - Republic Wireless
All,
I've got the identical problem on a Moto X XT 1049 from Republic Wireless: unable to get wifi and bluetooth to go on.
1) Do you think it is possible that the file provided in this thread, for a 1060, would work on my 1049?
2) How do I put that file in the persist directory? My phone is not currently rooted.

(I'm a relative newbie so spell it out for me, if you don't mind. Much appreciated).

Ernie
