The wifi toggle also grey in colur and cant be activated. Connected to 3G also cant tether the 3G out as hotspot.

So does this mean the wifi module/chip on the Mi2S is dead?

Maybe his efs are broken.(these partitions do contain imei and mac addresses).
EDIT: if you give me a dmesg dump I can tell u what's the problem, wlan or efs.

If efs broken then nothing can do already? But he can make call n received calls, if imei gone, that is impossible right?
How to get the dmesg dump?

No on pc with adb enabled. If u want to use terminal emulator use these command
su -c dmesg > /sdcard/dmesg.log

U'll find the log on sdcard then

"<6>[15712.850906] wlan: loading driver v3.2.0.52A
<3>[15712.850967] wlan: [1883:F :HDD] hdd_driver_init: WLAN device not found!!
<3>[15712.850997] wlan: driver load failure"
Which rom do u have installed? If the kernel is correct it seems your wlan device is dead.

EDIT: I would try to flash latest miuiandroid rom because it contains latest kernel and modem. If that doesn't work ur wifi device is really dead and u should send your phone to repair.

Sucks, perhaps it might be worth sending the device to the seller?
Most sellers seem to offer warranty.
We bought it in China on the shopping complex telco shop...and we are in Malaysia....I don't think got warranty...

He will have a damn expensive alarm and gaming device...and he lost hope on Xiaomi product already.

I am on WIUI. Do you have clockworkmod? If yes, Reboot in recovery -> advance -> disable and then enable tdb. -> reinstall rom.
Hope this will fix your problem. I wqs scared as s...:confused:
