    • Hola Prasidh Sudesh
      A mi me pasa lo mismo con mi Motorola E5-Plus. Encuendo la wifi pero se queda buscando redes wifi y aunque hayan muchas no ve ninguna. A veces si funciona y encuentra alguna. se conecta, pero automáticamente se desconecta y de nuevo vuelve a dejar de funcionar la wifi. Lo mismo ocurre si creo un punto de acceso wifi, para compartir internet, se crea, pero ningún dispositivo lo ve.
      ¿Usted logró solucionar ese problema en su teléfono?

    • Hi Yemi

      Sorry to hear that our tutorial didn’t work for you.

      We didn’t have any Motorola phone at the moment to test that out.

      Did you try any other method?

        • Hi Yude

          I have updated the code and reference to the source in case you experience any issue.

          Very sorry about that.

          • Well that phone is dead and couldn’t be recovered 2 months after purchase but a very valuable lesson learnt from the experience, Do your due diligence about any phone before you flash. After so much time spent on research I realized I just did so many wrong things from following the tutorials on this site.
