I re-downloaded 2.0 and flashed it again. I select the language and the next screen says "Select Wi-Fi" and "Turning Wi-Fi on" and it just sits there.

What am I missing?

Did you do a fresh install? Get everything up and running pure stock.

Once you have it all working, do a nandroid backup, then try installing Bulletproof. If it goes wrong you can restore your backup.


I installed the stock kit kat rom and Bulletproof installed and ran just fine, no issues with wifi.

Yeah... I kind of screwed up there. I was already happily using Bulletproof and didn't back anything up before upgrading (a mistake I won't make again). I may have screwed things up when I upgraded to 2.0 and THEN applied the stock update (to get rid of the notification) then 2.0 again. When I noticed I had no Wi-Fi, I wiped everything and installed again. I just wiped again and installed a freshly downloaded 2.0 and it's still stuck on the "Wi-Fi" screen. Now, however, it says "To see available networks turn Wi-Fi on" but there are no options to do so.

I will try to find a stock install.

All sorted. Installing 4.4 again did the trick for enabling Wi-Fi.

Thanks for your work on this. :)

I think this is a growing issue with the nexus 7 my WiFi does the same thing. I read in other forums and this is now the 4 th person.

I'm having some problems with battery drain after I flashed this kernel. I checked BBS and there are a lot of wakelocks for AudioMix. Lockscreen/touch sounds are turned off. I can post some screenshots if necessary. Anyone else having these problems?

Wifi breaks for me too when installing this kernel. I tried everything Ive read or could think of. Restored a working backup, let restart, reboot and flash Bulletproof, no wifi. Wiped dalvik, fixed permissions still no Wifi. I even tried Elemental-X, and same issue. Any ideas on how to fix? Oh yeah, Im using Omni rom with TWRP

Just installed over CR 2.1 and wifi is working with no problems. Seems nice and fast.

CleanRom was installed over stock 4.4 and no other kernel flashed until this one.

No WiFi issues here. Factory wiped from 4.3, installed clean rom, plus this kernel & no problems.

Sent from my iphone killing Galaxy Nexus running whatever kernel & rom I feel like. For the love of everyone on forums READ BEFORE YOU POST.

You didn't try the one thing that will fix your problem: a dirty flash :)


I suspect you previously had the wifi hack that allowed 4.3 kernels to run on 4.4

I thought a dirty flash was flashing without doing a factory wipe, if not, what is a diry flash? Not wiping dalvick and cache?

And as far as a WiFi hack, I didn't install/flash one at all. I was using the stock kernel that came with Omni ROM. In fact this is the first separate kernel I've ever flashed on my nexus. I've always used the stock ones that came with each ROM.:confused:

Great job man Super smooth. I freaking love the tap to wake. I actually just loaded up the M7 with bulletproof also.

I have stayed with stock because it's been so damn good, but great job. Hope I don't get any weird wake locks. That's been my experience with custom kernels usually start getting weird wake locks, etc. Damn this is smooth just typing is big improvement. Thank you for time and efforts.

    NOTES

    Kernel Tuner/TricksterMod, etc
    You don't need these apps because the Bulletproof installer sets everything up automatically, but if you want to check or change settings, you can use these apps. Just be aware that some of them (e.g. Kernel Tuner) are set by default to apply settings on boot, which can interfere with the settings you chose in the Bulletproof installer.


    Sweep2Wake
    Sweep2wake (S2W) allows you to wake up your device by swiping your finger across the capacitive buttons from left to right. Swiping from right to left will put it back to sleep (sweep2sleep). The options are: sweep2wake/sweep2sleep, sweep2sleep only, and disabled. If you use apps such as Kernel Tuner, the sweep2sleep only option can be selected by choosing "On with backlight".

    /sys/android_touch/sweep2wake

    0=disabled
    1=enable sweep2wake + sweep2sleep
    2=enable sweep2sleep only



    Shortsweep
    Enabling this makes sweep2wake work with a shorter sweep distance. You can edit /etc/elementalx.conf to change the setting on boot.

    /sys/android_touch/shortsweep
    0 = disabled
    1 = enabled


    DoubleTap2Wake
    DoubleTap2Wake (DT2W) allows you to wake the device by double tapping in the bottom inch or so of the screen, above the capacitive buttons.

    /sys/android_touch/doubletap2wake

    0=disabled
    1=enable doubletap2wake


    CPU voltages
    CPU voltages are fully customisable with apps such Kernel Tuner or Trickster Mod. Be careful, lowering voltages can cause instability. Generally, having reboots while the phone is asleep is a sign that your minimum voltage is too low. The minimum voltage allowed is 700mV.

    Be careful with undervolting. If you have bluetooth or sound issues, try increasing the minimum voltage.


    NTFS support
    This is for anyone who wants to use OTG to connect a USB stick or portable harddrive formatted with Microsoft's NTFS filesystem. You may need Stickmount or a similar app to mount.
