[quote=92815]but then i realised my rpi hasnt had an ethernet connection. i connected it proberly again and everything was working again…[/quote]

I had the same exact issue, tried to set things many, many times and failed every time.

I connected Ethernet and suddenly all the changes worked. This is a bit frustrating because i was changing the keymap when trying to edit the wpa config to get online without a network cable to begin with.
