iPhone has a grayed out wifi button even after network reset and full OS restore (not jailbroken). Will a hardware failure cause the wifi button to gray out?

hi,

try this..

just resetting iPhone’s network setting

 To reset the network settings, go to “Settings” -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings.

then reboot..

post results.

4.0.2

Neither Network Reset nor full iTunes restore with upgrade to 4.0.2 worked.

wel thats badnews.. forgot.. you need shsh blobs to save it.

anyway.. try to soft reset holding menu + power button...
hold it until it reboot.. then try resetting network again.. then reboot..

if still doesnt work.. then i say (probably) a hardware failure.

Was the iPhone jailbroken in the past?

Then it's very likely you corrupted the baseband NVRAM; if the baseband version no longer matches your IOS version, you'll get exactly that symptom.

You'll probably need to wait for Apple to release a new version of the IOS that rewrites the baseband NVRAM; or, alternatively, re-jailbreak your phone.
