nvram-error-editMore than a few China phone MTK6577, MTK6589, MTK65xx users have turned up with either NVRAM Err = 0x10, or NVRAM Err = 0x04. Other users may also need to change their MAC address because more than one device has the same MAC address and it’s creating a conflict on the wifi network. This tutorial should fix the issues for you. Note, this is for rooted phones only.

How to do it:

  1. Install ES Explorer from Play (or use a similar root navigator)
  2. In ES Explorer, make sure ‘Root Explorer’ is ‘ON’ – (Menu button > Tools > Root Explorer)
  3. Make sure to allow root privileges at any time ES Explorer requests it
  4. Navigate to \data\nvram\APCFG\APRDEBed
  5. Copy WIFI to your SD
  6. Get it onto your computer using your method of choice (email / USB transfer / bluetooth / SugarSync etc…)
  7. Install HxD Hex Editor
  8. Open the previously copied WIFI file in HxD. It should look similar to the image above
  9. The MAC address starts row 1, column 4 and ends at row 1, column 9. If your problem is NVRAM Err = 0x10, check your phone’s MAC address (From home screen > Menu button > Settings > About > WLAN MAC Address) and input that value. Otherwise edit as needed.
  10. Important: Save as a DIFFERENT FILE NAME or otherwise backup the original WIFI file and copy back to SD
  11. Navigate back to \data\nvram\APCFG\APRDEBed and note the file permissions (in ES Explorer, tap and hold WIFI > More > Properties)
  12. Overwrite the previously existing WIFI file with your modified WIFI (renaming it back to WIFI if necessary)
  13. Check file permissions and change to same as the original WIFI file if required (ES Explorer, tap and hold WIFI > More > Properties > Permissions > Change)
  14. Bam, reboot! Please let us know how this works out for you
