So, when that 2.11 leak came out, i was psyched, installed immediately, and well.. it hasn't been good.. at all. It greeted me with an epic fail and wiped the sdcard still have no idea what happened there, and i get so much lag on the keyboard its insane. Keys get stuck, or just dont work. And the most interesting, my wifi is broken. It just wont connect. It shows the networks, but on sense, it just keeps scanning, wont connect, says its remembered, and on cm7, it says disabled. ?????? WHAT???? I have never seen it. I also have fluctuating signal, im in a 4g area, but its on 3g 60% of the time, and just keeps switching. Which im sure is just lovely for the battery.

Now i think i heard someone saying its radio related, so here is my question, could that be the issue? and can i revert radios without bricking? if i have the 2.11.501.2 radios, can i go back to the MR2.5 radios? and if it isnt the radio, WHAT IS IT.

Honestly, i have had nothing but issues on this phone. This is the 6th(!!!!!!) one. If someone says replacement i may shoot myself. EVERY REPLACEMENT FROM VERIZON SUCKS. /rant

to my knowledge the radio has no affect on wifi...wifi issues are usually kernel related...it will however kill your data if not correct for rom. did you do a full wipe before flashing??? if so i would try re-downloading, full wipe and re-flash...i have tried several roms based on newest leak as well as the vanilla 2.11 leak and all have been fantastic. running bamf forever now and it's perfect. fyi i am also using the newest leaked radio and it works perfect...good luck!!!

its been doing this on many roms, all wiped before flashing. Idk whats going on. It worked before, not i just cannot connect to anything. On cm7 im on the stock kernel, says disabled, and sense i am on imoseyons gb sense kernel, just wont connect... But for some reason, wifi tether works... idk.... and the keyboard keys are getting annoying.

have you tried using stock sense kernel...last imoseyon i flashed killed my sd card and ziggy's is ok but sometimes laggy for me too (even overclocked) they are working without the htc source for these kernels so they are bound to have issues. even at 1ghz the stock kernel is much snappier and i have no issues with great battery life. i love to overclock but htc did a pretty good job with this one and until the devs get a hold of the kernel source, i think stock kernel is best bet.

which rom you running...stock kernel comes with all 2.11 roms except for synergy and gingeritis...you said you were using Imo's so i figured you flashed rom...then Imo's kernel. i know there was ffc issue but i thought that was only with imo kernel??? if you like sense 2.1 id highly recommend bamf 2.4.1 and if you wanna give sense 3.0 a whirl, BAMF Forever is working flawless. i'm not trying to be a BAMF fanboy but both roms are super smooth and bug free for me. noooooo lag at all

if you reflash the rom without wiping data it will flash the stock kernel back in...i'd recommend wiping dalvik and cache though just in case...but all data will be safe

Just wanted you to know you aren't alone, I don't know how or when the problem started but one day I went to turn my mobile data off and put WiFi on and it keeps saying UNABLE TO SCAN FOR NETWORK. I was also on Imoseyen's kernel, tried several radios, and ROMs but they all say the same thing. Unrooted and replacement is in the mail.

Oh god... I.. I cant... I just cannot deal with verizons "like new" replacements. If my wifi is screwed, ugh.. idk... This phone has been nothing but issues. That being said, im fairly confident my wifi is fine, as wifi tether works. but that just makes it more confusing.

Can i flash a radio older than the one on the phone or will that brick? I'm no n00b but flashing radios is not my strongsuit, as i never do it.

maybe a little nit of reading befor you start flashing,yes you can flash the older radios,just make sure they are gingerbread radios,also the original kernel is out there (search), best would be install something that has less bugs, learn what you are doing, make nands befor you flash away, your wifi issue is a kernel prob,did you flash a sense kernel on an aosp rom or aosp on a sense rom? you need to wipe everything (sdcard also)system/cache/data/dalvik/battery then put your rom/kernel on the sdcard and flash the rom,let it boot and see if that works ok befor you go flashing anything else. if it doesnt work then start with a different kernel,but the right one for your rom.

I CAN VERIFY THAT THE LATEST (802) RADIO BROKE MY WIFI. I was wondering if I was along. I had to do a replacement. It is not kernel related as I was running the stock kernel. Battery is excellent, wifi worked for about a weak and then would not even scan for networks. I just kept getting "error" under wifi. No change to the rom and kernel. It was fine for 3 months up until I flashed this radio. FYI my "like new" replacement has a recessed power button, it will be going back as well. This is TB #5 for me. As much as a HTC fan as I am, Samsung will probably be my next manufacturer of choice.

Yes. I did not flash them separately.
I mean did you flash lte+cdma radio? If you did try mixing some up and see what you get can't hurt. Me I flash one radio file for lte and cdma and I been lucky enough to not have these problems people have here
