Tablet [Q] wifi not working after root. sm t217s

Process was... TWRP... Stock firmware...supersu. paid for WiFi tether and showed connection to router but still is running off of sprint data. WiFi slide won't even stay in on postion. Device won't even show network options. Any takers? Would just flash new cm but there isn't any yet as I assume the developers are still at it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I looked at the specs for the T211 and see that "WiFi Direct Available". I don't know what that means but I suspect that Sprint has the WiFi capability turned off and non-accesable. This would not surprise me. If forces you to use Sprint data (at a cost to you) instead of free WiFi hotspots. I also looked to see if there was a Cellular South firmware (OEM Rom) and did not see one.

I am at a loss as to why you cannot access WiFi. I would call a Sprint store and inquire as to why you cannot access WiFi. See if they have a legitimate answer. If they say it is turned off and CANNOT be turned on, then I would take it back and demand a refund then find another carrier.

JMHO

I can help with that my fellow T217S user.

Please refer to my thread. No need to take it to Sprint. Easy fix.

but your wifi feature was disabled due to the flashed ROM. some ROMs breaks that capability due to compatibility with the current BL.
::Phone:: Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 (White)
::Recovery:: TeamWin Recovery Project 2.7.0
::Firmware:: Rooted MJA kitkat 4.4.2
::Kernel:: 3.4 Cyanomod Kernel
::ROM:: AOSP - SlimKitKat
::MicroSD Card:: 64GB SanDisk (Fat32 Formatted)

Actually you can reload the OEM Rom (Firmware) back onto the device and it will appear brand new. Then they will look at it. Unless, of course, you already let them know what you have done.
