Any news about m10hd "cooler" wifi-problem?
The problem is solvable. Please refer to
At the bottom of the page you will find the text:
Wifi Fix Files.rar - [Click for QR Code] (187 Bytes, 339712 views)
After downloading and unzipping the file Wifi Fix Files.rar you get two files:
WIFI and WIFI_CUSTOM
These two files must be in the folder
be copied (overwrite the existing files)
In conclusion, do not forget reboot.
hey, thanks for the reply
i have difficulty getting the fix to stay
when coming back to ubports, (even double checked the permisions.)
i need to learn how to do it via terminal.
i must be wearing things out going back n forth
well i found out by accident , that the cause of twrp not working, was an sdcard i left in it. it was locked up trying to read it all the time.
I guess the times it worked ,i had removed the sdcard. and not put the 2 and 2 together.
thanks again for your help

@1896er, I was also searching for exact steps to fix it on my brand new Aquaris BQ M10 HD just flashed from Android 8.1.0 to Ubuntu Touch, and finally got it! It's something @simox told about but these are steps that worked for me.
Download an archive with
WIFI_CUSTOMfiles to your tablet. Please note that
ziparchive rather than
rarcan be extracted on UT. So I had to repack it on my PC first:
Open Terminal and switch to
$ sudo -i
$ cd /home/phablet/Downloads
Extract downloaded archive there:
$ unzip nvram-by-skyneel.com.zip
$ cd /data/nvram/APCFG/APRDEB
You will probably see
WIFI_CUSTOMfiles there. Backup them:
$ mv WIFI WIFI.backup $ mv WIFI_CUSTOM WIFI_CUSTOM.backup
Now copy these files extracted from the archive:
$ cp /home/phablet/Downloads/WIFI* ./
Change files' permissions:
$ chmod 660 WIFI*
Now close everything and reboot the system. After reboot go to WI-FI settings, remove all previously used networks
<your wi-fi name>,
<your wi-fi name 1>,
<your wi-fi name 2>, etc... Finally, connect to your WI-FI network again entering a password (hopefully last time).
Go to "System Settings" > "About" and check your device's MAC address. Reboot the tablet. Now it has to connect to your WI-FI automatically on startup and MAC address has to be left unchanged.
this is awesome Thank You very much
(should go on github as a stickie)
Of course, we have to be careful when installing files that come from unknown sites. And: It seems to me that all devicesget the same MAC. That does not bother me. I do not do banking with the tablet, I do not mind with google or any "social networks". I would not even look at my e-mails with a tablet.
Anyway, when I flash cool-6, all the modifications are gone. I get back the files "WIFI" and "WIFI_CUSTOM" that do not run.
Maybe someone can work up the facts to the extent that CONTROLLED and SAFE files "WIFI" and "WIFI_CUSTOM" are delivered during the installation process of the ubports-installer. Unfortunately I am not able to do that.
It seems that not only BQ M10 tablets are affected.
I got an error using the terminal version ( step7,could not find files ).
So i used twrp ,(file manager) to delete and replace,wifi/ wifi_custom,files checked it worked, YES.
Then did chmod 660 with twrp.
Now to reflash regular recovery. (for ota updates)
Is this related to our problems, anybody with the knowledge, look at this video,and see if this is a ,behind the scenes way of fixing this problem, or if it is nothing related.
Because our devices are keeping the ssid and password, but don`t do anything to reconnect, after being rebooted, unless we have changed the WIFI /WIFI_CUSTOM ,files
or ,are the 16.04 ubports os (unknowingly) being made with this problem : but it is only affecting certain devices.
I've tried the adaptation from the video several times. I had no luck with it.
@emailforfor Thanks for your reply, I just thought we were missing something

Worked just fine, just one thing about it: in Step 7 you need
cp /home/phablet/Downloads/nvram-by-skyneel.com/WIFI* .
nvram-by-skyneel.com is missing in your path.
Thanks a lot!
