I just (re-) installed CM10.1 and used Gobackup to restore the wifi settings (I suspect this was my error).

Now wifi won't turn on.

How do I get it working again?

It might be a problem with GO backup, as that often causes wi-fi problems.
Try going to /data/misc/wifi/ with file manager and then deleting wpa_supplicant.conf

Also delete
bcm_supp.conf in data/wifi/

Tutorial: How To (Officially) Unlock Your Bootloader! (The long way, but which definitely works)

Please, Do not use the HuaweiG300.com Tutorial on how to unlock your bootloader, it is better to unlock it officially with my tutorial!

Hello. I am really busy at the moment, so if you PM me, or need help from me, don't expect a reply for a few days weeks months.

Using giffgaff? Well, switch to 3. Its better in every way!

The ROMS I have used:

Download Blink, a great app that controls the status LED on the G300!

Wait for 5 seconds and then click skip ad! Do not download anything in the ad window, that is not the app!

Did I help you?

Make a nandroid first though, as then you can restore it if it does not work

Restoring wifi settings using GoBackup on CM10.1 based roms does not work. It breaks the wifi like you found out.

They really need to disable that feature, as it causes lots of problems...

This happened with me. Try Make a wifi access points backup with this app: https://play.google....swords&hl=pt_PT

And after restore it in CM10.1, and works ;) I tested it and works ;)
