Since some days it doesn't load my MAC - so I cannot connect to WiFi.
If I remove everything in /data/misc/wifi folder and restart again it works again..

Of course I've to save WiFi networks.

I'm using PAC ROM on my S3 (with root).


now if I restore / copy my backup files and turn WiFi on it got overwritten by default / empty files

is there a better or quicker way to do that?

UPDATE (150708)

found that blog: MAC address unavailable
I think that my kernel/modem/... is defect.
Is there a way to fix it?

  • Dors not load your MAC? What do you see when you go to Settings -> About -> Status?
