FIX 4.2 root ota 4.3 wifi broke yellow sprint boot loop
out of the box straight into download mode and i rooted before first boot. su installed on sprint using auto root. phone updated all programs and voicemail app. then went straight to 4.3 ota update. after reboot i noticed wifi toggle would not work like everyone else. using this link
i went back to 4.2 stock sprint qbking has page with all verisons but his links are very slow or unavailable so i did a search for the 4.2 sprint stock file name. odin the file under pda with only auto reboot checked. first reboot stuck at yellow sprint boot ani. remembered qb saying to stock recovery and wipe data factory reset on next reboot kinda long it passed the yellow screen i was back on 4.2 and wifi worked fine. since my reboot ive gone through all updates that lead to 4.3 to include the MF9 update. 4.3 no root wifi works fine going to attempt auto root for sprint if wifi works im going to use o2backup to make cwm recovery then i will proceed to attempt native hotspot mja.
SIDE NOTE: when i rooted the first time around and ota to 4.3 the stock recovery was still showing custom binaries but i had no root i think that messed up the wifi part which is why i waited to root this time around after 4.3 to root. If anyone else wants to try to root at 4.2 then uninstall root binaries before ota to see if the wifi stays in tact i would like to know. (give me a thx if this helps anyone first time around)
