Hmm.. Upgraded N7 3g 2012 from 4.2.2 to 4.4.2 and got similar problem, wifix didn't help, so I tried "manual" method for wifixing. Looks like the only problem was in tablename. Option wifi_country_code moved (as for 4.4) from "secure" to "global" table of /data/data/com.android.proveders.settings/databases/settings.db , so general method forr changing country code still works.

I wrote a short script (tried to run as init.d - but it has no sense as country code is beeing read from simcard when all init.d scripts are finished), so i used free Script Manager - SManager (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....scriptmanager) to launch script after boot.

That's script code (just changed wifi_country_code location):
Code:
#!/bin/sh
sleep 10
sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db "INSERT INTO global (name, value) VALUES ('wifi_country_code', 'EU');"
svc wifi disable
sleep 10
svc wifi enable
Also i've added sleep for 10 seconds for ensure that sim data is already read, and added wifi down - sleep - wifi up for reestablish network connection (as i'm using n/g network for old devices, so Nexus is connected in g-mode to my router when script is executed).

Instruction:
1. Download sqlite3 binary from any source (I've got it from xda http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...29&postcount=2) and move it to /system/xbin, set permissions 755 (rwx-rx-rx)

2. Save script to internal SD-card, f.e. as "fix_country_code.sh",

3. Install script-manager, that is able to run scripts on boot, and set to execute script with root rights (like on screenshot if SManager is used). Also it's possible to test script w/o reboot

Unhappy HTC Sensation Wifi not working
Hello, my wifi doesn't work either.
It stopped working since I upgraded the official fw to ICS I suppose.
Actually I gave the phone to my girlfriend, since her old sony broke.
I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade it to the latest fw (not custom rom, because she doesn't need it) but since then it stopped working (at least I think that was the reason).

First I thought the issue is the new official fw, since it stopped working at around this time. My gf just told me the next day it wouldn't work anymore.
But since I flashed a custom rom (ViperS 2.0.2), it still wouldn't work.
I asked myself whether it could be the antenna, because she let the phone fall down from about 1,5m (around the time when wifi wouldn't work anymore)..
But, as some suggested in other forums, it didn't work either to hit the back of the phone several times, so that maybe some piece went into place again. I don't know whether it could be solved by buying a new backplate, as it is connected to the antenna?

I tried everything mentioned to get it to work again > Wifix Manager, etc, flashed another custom rom than ICS, But nothing helped at all.

The very strange point is, that I can't even try to activate wifi anymore, cause when I turn the phone on, it seems that it tries to switch wifi on itself, but nothing happens. Not even a Failure message anymore. So basically I can't even touch the wifi button, I can't turn it off or try to turn it on.
Not even when I go into flight mode and reboot the phone.

Could it be hardware related? Or any other solutions, that I might try?
