[Q] Wifi won't enable?
Can somebody give me an advice related to the following issue ?
A friend of mine bought two months ago a Huawei G510 smartphone. I never ever recommend somebody to buy a Huawei, but he told me: "It's okay, you know the phones doesn't last a lot in my hands".
And again...he proved this was true. After one month he dropped the phone in a sink full of water.
He sent it to me into a bowl with rice, I opened it, cleaned it and the phone is working fine right now. But there is an issue: Wifi won't start. I factory reset the phone, I opened again to check if there is any cable disconnected...but everything is fine.
I extracted the phone catlog and this is what I get related to the wifi:
E/WifiStateMachine( 432): Failed to start supplicant!

E/WifiStateMachine( 432): Unable to change interface settings: java.lang.IllegalStateException: command '28 interface setcfg eth0 0.0.0.0 0 down' failed with '400 28 Failed to set address (No such device)'

Can somebody tell me what it can be ? Is the modem roasted ? Any solution or idea ?

Previous phone: Samsung Galaxy S3 Quad-Core Exynos
Actual phone (probably for my next 2-3 years): Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9505 32GB black mist unlocked. The S4 with Exynos Octa is the fail of the year (for me) !
