I have a serious problem with my Galaxy Note. All of a sudden Wifi is not
working anymore (cannot be turned on anymore at all). Any ideas as how to
get it fixed?
Background: I was playing a online game, put the device on the table
(waiting for a timed task to finish). About 5 Minutes later I was picking
it up again and noticed that the phone was shut off. Turned it on again and
noticed that WIFI was greyed out. Other bugs noticed: The game data was
wiped and all device administrators have been unselected (I use a tool that
needs device administrator privileges to turn on the phone by swiping over
the distance sensor). I don't know if WIFI was turned on or off at the time
of crash. Anyhow - seems like some files that were in use (or recently in
use) were deleted/corrupted. Probably including some WIFI components.
Stuff tried already: Turning Flight mode on/off. Rebooting Phone. Removing
Battery. Various service codes found on the net like *#232339#, *#526# and
*#528# all which do noting (do not open anything; seem to be invalid).
Phone is running on Stock Android 4.1.2, it is NOT rooted.
Any advices how to fix the problem (I'd really really really like to keep
my app data, so factory reset is something I'd like to avoid). Found a tool
called "fxr wifi fix and rescue" but dunno if it would be aplicable in this
case or if it could make things even worse. Anything else? Any log files
that can be checked? Anything to determine if this is hardware or software
