I tried to fix my friends iPad 2 16gb wifi because it won't find any networks. I tried every fix I could find by searching the internet. I spent literally hours and hours on this. It was then decided by myself and others I spoke online in forums to that it was a hardware problem. Thing I don't understand is that it did work at one point, then with subsequent iOS upgrades it stopped working. It is currently on the latest iOS or close 7.0.4 I think.

I was wondering if I jailbroke it, would it by any chance fix the wifi problem she is having?

I have not had the geniuses at Apple tell me it's a hardware problem. I have tried every possible reboot and restore available and many other 'fixes' I found while googling the problem and asking for help on the Apple forum. I did not belong to this forum when I was attempting to fix her iPad2. So it was just the general consensus of people who claim to be knowledgeable on forums telling me it's likely a hardware issue seeing all the things I have tried to do to fix it to no avail. The fact that it did work prior to upgrading to iOS 7 is why I am wondering if it's software related. Kind of like a last ditch effort lol!
