Plane Mode Tweaker Android APP

Take control of your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when aeroplane mode is on

**This application has very limited functionality past Android 2.3 because of Google's changes to Android. The only option available for most users past Android 2.3 is the trigger that turns WiFi off when toggling on aeroplane mode.

Different devices will have different behavior, as I do not have the resources to test this workaround on every device. **

If you hate it when your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth get disabled by turning on aeroplane mode, here your fix!

Perfect for turning an outdated smartphone into a dedicated MP3 player or PDA. Just take out the SIM, use this app, and leave the phone in aeroplane mode.

Сompletely free with no ads

Once the settings in this application have been applied you can safely remove this application - they are written to your system settings and are permanent until a factory reset.

# Warning
May not work on all devices!

Some manufacturers have locked down some of these settings, rending this application useless in some cases. I have no way around this, nor can I tell which devices specifically with which firmwares do not support the functionality in this app, unfortunately.

Known not to work in Android 4.2 because Google has made aeroplane mode settings 'read-only' when accessing them from third-party apps.

# Permissions used
* write system settings - that's what this application does...

# Нow to use this app
Сhoose the options you want enabled or disabled in this application. Your changes will take place immediately.

You can view the changes in Android's settings application, typically under 'Wireless Settings'. Wireless settings can be launched directly from the bottom item in this application for your convenience.

Еxample Use Сase 1:
Allow toggling of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when aeroplane mode is enabled, but still have aeroplane mode toggle Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off ->
on, on, on, on

Еxample Use Сase 2:
Make Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggling independent of aeroplane mode ->
off, off, on, on

Еxample Use Сase 3:
Don't let Wi-Fi and Bluetooth toggle when aeroplane mode is enabled, and toggle them off when aeroplane mode is enabled ->
on, on, off, off

When launching wireless settings, your changes may not be visible right away. In this case, hit the 'Back' button on the device or kill the 'Settings' application with a task killer. Your changes will be reflected upon a fresh restart of the wireless settings task.

# What this does
When aeroplane mode is enabled, the default behaviour is to disable the 'radios' on the device. That would include your cell radio, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

A good application to go with your backup Android device to reduce extend battery life.

Using hidden functionality built into Android, this application does one of two things:

1) Prevent aeroplane mode from toggling your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth radios.
(This also has the effect of allowing your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to stay on after reboots when aeroplane mode has been enabled.)

2) Allow Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to be toggled when aeroplane mode is enabled.
(No longer possible past Android 4.0)

# More Notes

Your settings should persist after you reboot your device. Feel free to remove this application to free up some space when you are done with it.

The default manufacturer setting varies depending on the device. As a result, this application may not prove to be of use to every device.
