[Q] No sound and occasional wifi
I wanted to upgrade my firmware for my i9505. It was rooted so I went back to a stock firmware I had used a month or so ago. Xxuamdm. It went perfectly fine and after rebooting I set about upgrading the software. The first upgrade was nearly 400mb. This downloaded and then installed OK. The next one was about 50mb and the same happened again. Then there was a third one - about 50mb again - except when my phone rebooted it got stuck on the loading screen. I tried to reboot several times but I couldn't get past the Samsung loading screen. Eventually I decided to reflash the stock I had before using Odin again but this time when I went to update the firmware I couldn't turn my WiFi on and also I noticed my sound had stopped working. This is for calls notifications music YouTube everything. I have then tried to update via kies and still I get the same problem. I went to Sammobile and downloaded the most up to date firmware for my device and still no sound or wifi. I then tried a Google ROM I had flashed previously and the WiFi was able to turn on again but still I have no sound. All I want is the latest stock firmware and if I can then root it afterwards that would be a bonus.
I have searched for answers but I can only find two threads - both of which have not offered a solution to my particular issue.
Sorry if I have posted in the wrong area but does anyone have any ideas on this? I have managed to flash several different custom roms today - Foxhound, Google Edition, Echoe - each of these has working wifi however none of them have fixed the no sound issue. When I call my phone it I hear ringing from one end but my phone does not even show someone is calling for a good 30 seconds - and I cannot hear anything when I pick up. Once I hang up my phone still thinks I am on a call and wont disconnect for a good 30 seconds.
When I get home later I am going to try and flash the following stock firmwares using Odin:
Is this a good idea or am I wasting my time and need to do something else?
I desperately need someones help on this - my only other option is to get a new phone and I really cannot afford to do that.
