    You guys are great and very helpful.
    I have changed the USB port and now able to load the Samsung Official Rom 4.4.2 (I9505ZHUFNB3) back onto my phone.
    Now it comes back to day 1 of the original issue - Still not able to enable to WiFi switch even I flash it with the Modem and WiFi Fix patches from "http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2192025", using the same version as "I9505ZHUFNB3".
    I tried flashing my phone back to older firmwares such as 4.2.2 or 4.3, none of them works even under the same condition as I flash the "I9505ZHUFNB3" version.
    Any idea?
    what ever you do , do not downgrade it will damage EFS folder
    just re-flash with the latest firmware only, no need to use wifi fix pathces
    remember do not downgrade

    i will find the firmware

    Product code

    She needs to find an Australian firmware you shouldn't flash different firmwares not ment for your region it's like I shouldn't flash other gsm carriers the motherboards are slightly different so you must flash what is ment for your region if not a rom that's based off of it

    Actually my phone was bought from HKG and it worked OK in Australia. WiFi worked well before it was on firmware 4.2.2. It had got a firmware 4.4.2 upgrade shortly before the phone gone dead with a faulty charging port.WiFi failed to work after it was repaired. I can't confirm if WiFi does work OK on firmware 4.4.2 as I might not have noticed that before it was faulty and got repaired
    That's why I tried to get this restored back to older firmwares just to confirm firmware is the issue, as I have gone thr' all other suggestions in the web with no luck...Not finally willing to grant it is a dead mother board.

    If it's been repaired that system board might be bad

    I think you need to stick on to 4.2 but you can't do that now 4.4.2 will block you from downgrading. the bootloader has been changed but your mother board has been changed so may be you can

    That's what I though as I have already flashed a Google 4.4.2 rom and also a custom rom WanamLite 4.2.2 but still no luck. Australia Samsung advises they do not fix phones bought from o/s (is this funny?) as they do not keep o/s spares. Look likes I have to ship it back to HKG to have that checked and repair. It was used for only 1 months and got too many issues - faulty charging port and mother board, both of them are not under warranty as per HKG Samsung. That's why I am losing confidence in buying Samsung Products although I have been a Samsung fans over 15 years.
    Thanks for you guys assistance anyway, sincere appreciations.

    If you got the warranty, you should sent it back. :-)

    I was told by the dealer at HKG that even Samsung HKG does not warranty for the faulty charging port and the mother board. I have to pay Aus $80 for repairing the charging port even it was only bought for 5 weeks. I doubt if that is the case and I will complain to Samsung.

    Once the motherboard is changed there is less chance to find a stable firmware..

    Have actually checked with a local mobile repairer who claims they can repair the mother board at no cost if can't fix it. I'll get it a try.

    Don't know if you achieved success as your post is older - I have a Samsung Galaxy 4 and it's wifi was unable to be enabled. My cure was simple and for some it may work... Power down - remove back case, and remove battery and SIM card ( and / or microSD if one is installed ) - push the SIM card in to eject, there is a releasing mechanism when you push the card in. Wipe contacts with a soft / micro cloth and replace cards and battery and back cover. Sometimes the card gets jostled and all it needs is to be re-inserted to recover. If this works it will be a complete save over factory resets or replacements - good luck to those who try - this worked for my phone.

    Um that's just the sim slot there's actually a wifi intina inside of your phone that intresting that it worked but also it shouldn't move inside the sim slot as its actually spring loaded to keep tension on the card to prevent that very same issue

    Thanks for you guys' suggestions. I believe I had tried all mentioned from 1st page of this thread. The only thing I cannot do is to revert the firmware back to 4.2.2 (My stupid S4 does not allow me to do so) as I believe the WiFi issue was caused by the firmware upgrade to 4.4.2 in Jan. Look like I have to wait for the next Stupid Samsung firmware upgrade to see how it goes.

    This going to take 6 months to a year or maybe never the best thing I can tell you to do is to flash a new kernel and modem are you rooted?

    I have the same problem but it started when i tried to root my phone.
    AS i am new to all this< I did something wrong and my phone was booting but it takes 3 minutes to boot and after that it will not be able to make a phone call or turn on wifi. I kept reading and ended up downloading some files from sammobile and now my phone works fine but wifi will not turn on.
    It is still taking more than 3 minutes to reboot. It gets stuck at "Set warranty bit : Kernel" for about 2 minutes..
    Anybody help please.

    The first boot after you flash a new rom can take about 5 on average you need to go back to your recovery and reflash your kernel
