So I flashed uvuenc2 again and wiped the Cache again. No help, still no wifi.

This is really getting to be a pain in the ass as my 4g service sucks at the house and rely on wifi.


Also I read last night not to flash 4.1.1 if you already have 4.3 uvuenc2 as it will brick the phone. Is there a way around that?

I suspect hardware issues. Particularly when 4G does work.

There are ways to check for Hardware issues, but wouldn't want to recommend that if Warranty option is open.

Please raise a Warranty Request Or call T-Mo.

Have you tried doing Odin to 4.3 stock?

Try another factory reset since youve reflashed the firmware. Data is still left over from before.
You can also try to see if you see anything going on with logcat. Theres apps that can help with this. Lots of logcat info on xda and elsewhere if you need it.
You cannot flash older firmware, but you can flash older roms. Try flashing a 4.1.2 MD5 based rom. This will trip the warranty bit if that matters.
