So I have an issue with very high packet loss on M and above so I know it's something to do with android and not the physical phone. I'm trying to modify wpa_supplicantl.conf but even if I pull it from my phone then push the unmodified file, wifi won't work after the next reboot until I delete the file and it's regenerated, anyone know why this is happening?

Note: I forgot to say, I've checked permissions and it's not an issue with them, it's 0660 before and 0660 after.

  • Looking at this with some interest, as I've experienced it myself. Have you checked ownership as well (see Restoring wpa_supplicant.conf)? Check the original ownership of the system created file before; the answer linked uses chown wifi:wifi, other places mention system:wifi. Not tried myself (no time to play with that currently), so please report if it works for you and I make it an answer if it does. – Izzy Feb 28 '17 at 14:47

  • Glad to read, thanks for the feedback! Made this an answer that so you can "accept" it – and I know what to take care of next time I want to use this approach :) – Izzy Mar 5 '17 at 11:40
