You can use the app neverforget wifi which works to a degree. Apparently all that is required is to enter wifi settings and it will automatically repopulate the WiFi password.
Yes that's the issue. In most cases the wifi password is stored in encrypted form for security.i used this method also thought about looking in the /data/misc/wifi directory for the wpa_supplicant.conf file and realised the passwords key (psk) isnt stored in plaintext like it does for most phones on modern networks instead looked like some hashed/garbage/ encryption of the key.
Just throwing that out there.
Update it to the latest, install twrp, ensure to make a full backup with TWRP.Here is my other question,
I have a brand new TAB S3, not opened yet. How should I proceed with rooting it? Do I power it on, fill out the registration info etc., then take all updates from Samsung and afterwards root it?
Or root it right away without doing an initial power up & update... Please let me know.
In case someone else has issues with bluetooth not being able to turn on, and trying to use bluetooth fix apps, and other commands just aren't working. Here is what I did, and also the symptom.
Detail of problem: If your bluetooth is grayed out, select it to turn it on, it slides over, but remains grayed out. And slides back over to off position after leaving the setting page.
1. Go to /data/misc/bluedroid directory
2. rename bt_config.conf and bt_config.bak files, or move them to sd card.
3. run the following command in step 4 from a terminal, or by connecting to adb shell.
4. am start -a android.bluetooth.adapter.action.REQUEST_ENABLE
5. A message will pop up about a bluetooth enable request, agree to that and bluetooth is working.
No plans to update, but I usually use the Linaro 4.9 toolchain.Hi Ashyx,
The rom version this kernel is aimed at is getting a bit outdated, just curious if you are thinking of building an AQF5 version? Alternately, I'd like to give it a go in building a kernel. Just curious, which cross compile toolchain do you recommend for building a kernel (I know my way around a kernel build but have never done an android kernel).
This is the one that I used,
I have noticed today that Bluetooth will not turn on, I am not sure if that has been this way from the start or not. Haven't used it on this tablet yet. Trying to enable it through the service commands don't work either.
