Question [Q] WiFi passwords not saving after 4.3 update

Anyone having issues with WiFi connections not saving after the update?

I have to enter the WPA2 key each time I want to connect to an access point now after I go out of range or turn WiFi on and off.

I'm on stock rooted 4.3.

I also tried renaming the /data/misc/wifi directory as some folks suggested that for tethering issues, but it didn't make a difference.

No, not with the stock sense ROM. I haven't tried again in a while. I've been using the Google Play Edition Kit Kat ROM from the developer forum I think and I haven't had the issue with that one. I've been using it exclusively for about a month now without any problem at all.

I also didn't have the issue with CyanogenMod 11. The WiFi passwords were remembered properly.

I was either going to try the stock OS's again if a RUU comes out for 4.3 or wait and try again when the Kit Kat version comes out. I really like the Google Play Edition, but I miss the camera software from Sense. Zoe's really handy with kids.
