    Question Plz help! wifi and Bluetooth issues :(

    thank you for any help you can provide
    well I bought a thrive 10.1 16gb, it was never updated so it sill has 3.1 on it.

    the problem im having is that when I go to turn on the wifi it just says error and the Bluetooth will not turn on ether... this thrive is not rooted and I tired to factory reset it which did not help....

    I read on this forum that maybe rooting and installing new rom might fix it. not sure if that's true?

    thanks again

    Hi wellItried, and welcome to Thrive Forums Sorry you're having issues. Rooting itself I don't think has any effect on Wifi or Bluetooth. A ROM may or may not have a slight effect either way on connectivity. What exactly do the error messages say when you turn on WiFi and when you turn on Bluetooth? Knowing that might help someone be able to give you more specific suggestions.

    You're welcome, and yes, screenshots are always helpful. I'm sorry, I started to reply, then got called away.
    Did WiFi and Bluetooth ever work, or is this something new? It could be hardware related. The antenna could have worked loose, or the wifi card (think that's what it's called) could be loose or bad. We usually suggest doing a 'tear down' (sounds scary, but really isn't so bad) That way you could reseat all the connections. There's a link somewhere on the forum. I had a link saved, but it got corrupted. I'll find it and post it.
