I experienced the same thing when I took the OTA. Big ole wifi calling update killed my wifi! Sprint wanted me to bring it to the repair center....screw that. It just so happened that it was the same day RUUs started surfacing, thank god! If I were you I would check out O.M.J.s thread as he has posted RUUs for h/k and also non h/k sprint devices. Run the RUU and you'll be good, then go from there.

when on wifi, my phone does not deep sleep, is this a known issue?

So you are suggesting that i should backup my stuff and re flash the 4.4.3 by clean install of the RUU? Not the ota but yes the complete RUU rom? What about the rooting and the S-OFF i will lose it ? I guess

If you run the RUU you'll lose root but not S-off.

Not sure, probably true though. My phone has better battery life running on lte than wifi. I was always under the impression being on wifi you were supposed to get better battery life.

I figured out the issue was that I disabled WiFi optimization which caused the wakelock, as soon as I enabled it, device would sleep on wifi
