I am fixing up a Nook Color for a good friend who is having some problems with his Wifi. He currently has CM 11 installed, and has a proper 188.8.131.52 CMW installed (for the most recent version). Wifi is grayed out, and the switch constantly sits in the "off state" and can't be changed, while the main screen reads "Turning Wifi on". He also has a bootable CMW 184.108.40.206 SD, which I have used to install the partition 2 fix, which ran without any errors. Also ran the partition repair and formats for the other partitions to be safe, but no dice.
Within terminal emulator, I can read the MAC address as root under /rom/dev/MACAddress, but not as a standard user. Other than that, it is inaccessible. A mac address is there for sure, but it seems that I cannot gain permissions over the directory. Does anyone know what they should read? the /rom directory is 770 with system system permissions.
I've tried multiple CM roms, including CM 7, 9, 10, and 11, and none seem to fix.
