Developer mode is enabled :(
This is the only WiFi setting

first we've heard of it not being present at all in the options.
have you tried using the search function in settings (in case it's hidden / offscreen due to some weird navigation quirk?)

I used the search function but there is nothing like this wifi scan or throttle:(

Can confirm the details from the bottom of the reddit post work.

Code: Select all

adb shell settings put global wifi_scan_throttle_enabled 0

If you still can't find the Developer Options or the specific Wi-Fi scan throttling setting, it's possible that your device's manufacturer or ROM might not have included this option in their customized software. In such cases, you might need to check for custom ROMs or firmware that support this feature, but keep in mind that modifying system settings can have risks, and it might void your warranty.

The throttling option may still be available via ADB command too - but considering the divergence of Hauwei/Redmi from core Android, that may not remain true.

So I have two P20 pro devices. I settled on the idea I couldn't fix the missing setting for the WIFI scan throttle, till I realised one of my devices wasn't throttling, while the other was. So I used ADB to read the settings, like this:

Code: Select all

adb shell settings get global wifi_scan_throttle_enabled
I found the device that was scanning fine returned null, while the device that was throttling was returning 0. so I used

Code: Select all

adb shell settings delete global wifi_scan_throttle_enabled
read the variable, it was null, tested it, and it was no longer throttling!

Just thought I'd share this just in case anyone else used this adb command and found it was still not working, being I noticed EVERYONE tells you to set it to 0. (not that this makes a huge amount of sense as to why it would read 0 as a positive, a random Huawei thing I guess.)

I noticed on the App FAQ
Anrdoid 10 + Hauwei - Throttle switch not available: Huawei has removed this developer option; no known work-around at present.
Seems I found it.

(now, if we could just figure out what they've done to maps)
