Default Wifi Issues - won't turn on until reboot

I am having issues with the Wifi on my Z2

I stay connected to a Wifi access point fine, but as soon as I move out of the Wifi area and then try to turn on Wifi again, it wont turn on until I either go into airplane mode, or turn the device off and on again.

I have Location based wifi disabled, stamina disabled, wifi optimization disabled and scanning always available disabled.


Anyone else having these same issues?

I haven't tried a hard reset or a firmware fix yet.

My bootloader is also permo-locked
Phone - Sony Xperia Z2 D6503 ROM: Stock

Try to forget your network and pair again.

Forgot network and paired again. When the wifi is on, it will stay on. But when I turn off, whether manually or via the "location based wifi" setting, it won't start again if it has been off for a long period of time.

Has nobody else had this issue?

Hey man, I've got the same problem.

It only happens occasionally, but the WiFi doesn't turn back on until I restart the phone.

Everything you have turned off, I have turned on.

Can I flash the unbranded firmware if my bootloader is locked and my device is sim locked to EE?

AFAIK you should be able to do that with no issues, look in the Stock FTF thread to find the UK unbranded .55 firmware

17.1.A.2.55
Germany - unbranded - 1281-4640 - LINK1
Germany - o2 - 1281-4650 - LINK1
Hungary - T-Mobile - 1282-1405 - LINK1, LINK2
Russia (generic) - unbranded - 1281-1985 - LINK1
UK (generic) - unbranded - 1282-0226 - LINK1, LINK2 <--- One you want.
