Wifi will not turn on, it just keeps saying "turning on wifi" and nothing else happens. Here is the relevant logcat:

http://pastebin.com/uan1MQw0

It doesn't seem to show anything particularly noteworthy to my unprofessional eye.

I tried 2.6.22 - wifi seemed to work, although it would never actually connect (I'll chalk it up to a problem on my end). I tried a fresh install, and an install over 2.6.22. I also tried doing a factory reset and running 'fix permissions' with no luck.

EDIT: Also, I meant to add that I ran a diff on /modules/bcm4329.ko from .22 and .29 and they are exactly the same, so it doesn't seem to be an issue with the wifi driver (I would assume).

EDIT2: After doing a full wipe - here is a much shorter logcat from trying to turn on wifi. As you can see, there is not much there:

Code:
  311    ar.NetworkController  D  updateTelephonySignalStrength: mSignalStrength == 19(GSM) 16(CDMA)
  154        SettingsProvider  D  external modification to /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db; event=2
  154        SettingsProvider  D  updating our caches for /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db
  154        SettingsProvider  D  cache for settings table 'secure' rows=47; fullycached=true
  154        SettingsProvider  D  cache for settings table 'system' rows=54; fullycached=true
  311    ar.NetworkController  D  updateTelephonySignalStrength: mSignalStrength == 18(GSM) 16(CDMA)
  311    ar.NetworkController  D  updateTelephonySignalStrength: mSignalStrength == 19(GSM) 16(CDMA)
  311    ar.NetworkController  D  updateTelephonySignalStrength: mSignalStrength == 20(GSM) 16(CDMA)
EDIT3: I found this link which I though was interesting, so I tried to create a symlink - but for some reason, busybox isn't working correctly. Pretty much the only terminal (adb) command that would work was 'cd'. Everything else gave me a "/system/bin/sh: [command]: not found"... interesting...

I know this was the wrong place to post this, but I just wanted to follow up because I don't like to leave things hanging just in case someone stumbles upon this from google.

This is where this belongs: http://forums.miui.us/showthread.php?22360-MIUI-2-6-29-Passion-WIFI-not-turning-on

(turns out the problem was /system is too large, causing copy errors that aren't being reported during install. I removed some unneeded crap from /system/media and reinstalled and it works now).

Thanks, and sorry again for posting on the wrong forum:p
