[Q] Failed OTA-Broken Wifi mystery
Looking for some help, and though my title may sound familiar, in all the OTA when rooting threads I've read I didnt see anyone with it.
So Ive had the phone a couple of weeks, I stupidly forgot to check for updates before unlocking and rooting. Phone was unlocked and rooted using the All in One kit, custom recovery is CWM touch GSM. First thing after unlocking I made a nandroid backup. Then unrooted, setup the phone like i wanted and made another backup (rooted). It was at this point I checked for updates, see there is the new update (ending in .15) that enables the LTE bands. Tried to update and it fails, from the research I then did (shouldve done first, I know) it seems to be because I need stock recovery/unroot. Everything Ive read seems to point to people with the original unlocked/rooted ROM needing to reflash the stock recovery and OTA should work.
So I track down the stock recovery (have tried with 2 different files-same results), go into the whole thing, phone reboots, I sit through the recovery screen (blue circle made of arrows,phone, blue progress bar) progress bar completes, phone shuts off...and then nothing.(Having tried this a few times I have given it at least 5 minutes before trying to turn it on) When I pushed the power the capacitive buttons blink but nothing happens. I have to hold down the power button long before the phone finally boots.
Seems fine and then a message pops up saying update failed, to wait for a future update. I check the phone info and the it lists the new version (ending in .15, original was .12). I was thinking maybe it did update and was going to give it a try but then noticed my Wifi will not turn on, the switch is moved to on, its says its turning on but then eventually times out and gives me an error. I cant for the life of me figure out what step I missed or where I went wrong. I went back to my original nandroid backup and re-rooted and started from scratch which is what Ive been using.
Any help would be appreciated, sorry for the length.
Incredibly short version: Stock unlocked rooted, flashed stock recovery to do OTA update, update fails and breaks wifi, totally lost
