I have tried all of the ICS roms, and always gets stuck at the same spot. Wi-fi is turning on.


It worked on the Revolver 4, but I wanted to try another one. Did a super wipe, and bam. Nothing after that..


Any thing I might be able to try?

You can try this:
- Turn off wifi
- rename the file /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf to wpa_supplicant.old
- reboot
- try wifi again to see if it works

**note
This might cause the tablet to forget any previously saved networks.

This is how I fixed my tablet after 15 hours of trying everything. I downloaded the ota rooted full version of ics and performed a full wipe then made sure it booted into that rom with wifi working then proceeded to flash my revolver backup with no problems. Hope that helps.

Similar WiFi issue - still stuck
I hate to bump an old thread, but I've recently hit what appears to be a related issue (WiFi stuck off), though perhaps there are some twists to my tale - and I'm still stuck.

I have an early TF101 (B50) and have had it rooted with stock ICS for awhile. Everything has been mostly fine, but I decided to give CM9 nightlies a try.

Here's where my issue differs from the others in this thread. With the CM9 nightly flashed, I was stuck at the boot animation (for hours - left it overnight with no progress). I restored my nandroid backup and now I had the "WiFi Turning on" issue that others here have experienced.

I've tried multiple other ROMS (latest of AOKP, Gummy, and Prime 1.6), with complete wipes, and in each case, I was stuck on the respective boot animation. This completely mystifies me, but it may not be related to the WiFi problem. After each iteration of failed ROM flashing, I can restore my nandroid backup (the rooted stock ICS) and everything works fine EXCEPT WiFi.

Following the suggestions in this thread I've tried flashing a new stock ROM (from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1514658) and while that doesn't stick at the boot animation, it also doesn't fix my WiFi. I also tried a.mcdear's suggestion in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...85&postcount=7, but I did not have the file wpa_supplicant.conf in my /data/misc/wifi directory. The only file in there was an empty file called "status." Just for good measure, I tried renaming it, but no joy.

At this point, I'm out of ideas and have a severly crippled TF. I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas from the community.

TIA

I've have a rooted TF101 B50 and most ROM's that I have tried seem to fail at this point as well. However, I did notice that when I flashed my first ROM (AOKP) it has the same stock kernel. So I tried another one. This time was Revolution 4. It seemed to work out just fine because I belive it has the stock kernel. Next I moved onto a CM10 Eruoskank ROM. It too had the problem of the AOKP ROM in that after I flashed it, the stock kernel was still present, presumably left over from the Revolution 4 ROM. I am now on Android Revolution HD 3.5.0 and it seems to work fine so I am sticking with it for the time being.

I beleive something in the flashing script of the ROM or the recovery program itself is not flashing the /boot partition properly. I am not a developer nor do I have an in depth knowledge of the inner workings of Android...but this is just a guess. I hope there is a way to flash just a kernel in the /boot partition from these individual ROMs. That would be nice.
