Description

On my Nexus S, 4.0, 0001:

- attempt to turn wi-fi on (interface hangs)
- exit that interface
- reboot
- boot fails, then reboots itself (cycle lasts forever)
- enter fastboot mode
- enter recovery
- factory reset
- problem solved (data lost)

One wonders why an attempt to turn on wi-fi survives a reboot. It shouldn't IMHO.

That issue appears when you use an incompatible(with the wifi driver) wifi firmware.

It also happened when no firmware is present. Should be fixed in git by now.
