Depending on your region, when you update your LG Note II, aka F200S, F200K and F200L, to Android Jelly Bean 4.1.x, you might encounter WiFi problems. It might not be able to scan the WiFi networks at all or it might successfully scan the networks but not be able to connect to it. This is not a hardware problem but a limitation of Android Jelly Bean. For fixing it, you’ll either need to root your LG Note II and install “WiFix” for fixing the WiFi in stock ROM, or you will need to flash a custom Jelly Bean ROM.
