before you do that you maybe should try another ROM first; in my opinion Andromadus Mimicry 1.5.0 still is one of the most stable ROMs available for the DZ; I never had probs with that apart from the fact that it's left sitting on ICS. If you cannot turn on WiFi there then maybe it's gone.Nothing helps. I think Wi-Fi Is hard broken. This one goes to trash and I'll go and visit eBay
Another clue for broken wifi, I wasn't able to make it work when using ART runtime, it's always hanging with 'wifi is activating' message.
Went back to Dalvik runtime and wifi is back again.
If it can help...
I can't install the ROM (alpha5), I'm getting 'Installation aborted (bad)' in recovery. File was downloaded and checked few times in order to make sure it's not damaged. SD card was also formatted, still no joy. Can it be my version of recovery 126.96.36.199?
Update your recovery with latest ext4.
Thanks man, it helped.
Also, do you guys use any tricks to reduce the lag? I don't want to complain about stock performance too much as it is fairly good, but it lacks a little bit to be DD I think. Currently I'm using Memory Manager but I needed Extreme option to be fully satisfied. Do you have any other suggestions I could try?

Salut Keno, What do you mean by a quick and stable ROM, do you have a pref for any of them ?Just install a quick and stable ROM.

I'm thinking to downgrade in order to get the best experience possible on a DZ. I'm planning to buy a new phone (the mic doesn't work anymore on my DZ since a week ) but I would like to keep it with a non too much experimental ROM, even with the mic not working.
I'm interested by the sony Z1, it looks like a decent phone and begins to be affordable. Almost 4 years for the DZ it's not so bad after all, nowadays.
Thanks and sorry for the off-topic discussionMy favorite is still AlterNdromadus CM10.1 | Android 4.2.2
Remains stable and quite quick
Close to the last versions.
I've tried some booster which gave improvements, but after a while, it started to gave stanged thiongs so I flashed over the ROM.
I use 8SMS app and Dialer EX which are more responsive than stock one's.
