Has anyone heard of any fix being created for the WiFi death grip?

It's the first time I hear about it (I haven't tried WiFi yet...) and it seems not good, I think it's due to the aluminium body of the phone... So not software issue...

Yeah... A fix seems sort of unlikely

Please ensure that you search the forums before creating new threads, this issue has been covered many times in existing posts.

I believe that it was proved to be software based when the DESIRE S Roms were ported to the DESIRE HD and they then suffered from the same problems with Wifi.

A partial software fix does exist but its only applicable if you have a S-OFF phone and root access to your phone, (Security-OFF) which is only currently possible to have by using the XTC clip device.
