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

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

I have tried Outpoxs' method in varies combinations with no success also I have tired your method a.mcdear and also with no success. Mine is still stuck on Turing WI-Fi on... The one thing with outpox method there might have been something I was doing wrong.

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 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, 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.
