Default [Q] WiFi won't turn on?

So I've just flashed Matr1x on top of PAC, and everything was working great, but now my Wi-Fi doesn't turn on. It'll say "Turning on Wi-Fi, but it never does. I've tried flashing stock radio, since I have a LTE radio flashed, but that didn't change anything. I've tried rebooting and waiting for 2 minutes before turning it on, still didn't work. I've tried flashing HellsCore instead, but to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks!

This happened to me when I flashed Francos kernel. I flashed the beta r209 and it worked. There was an issue in original kernel of 4.4.2. And many custom kernel use the same WiFi settings as stock.

It's an issue with 4.4.2 kernels and 4.4.4 roms. You could try this fix if you dont't want to change your kernel

Fixed it! I ended up flashing an earlier version of Matr1x and now everything's all good, except my wifi quality is really bad. I'm in my room, which is 50 feet from the router, but I barely get a bar. Whereas my laptop has a perfect 5 bars.

Ignore this, I simply rebooted it and everything's running smoothly, thank you!
