This ArcTools package helps to disable the phone/cell radio functions on any Android device.

What it does is just move /system/app/Phone.apk file to a backup directory /system/appbackup/ (in case it needs to be re-installed)

 

This simple modification is supposed to help improving the battery life on some devices and was reported to work successfully on the Cube U3GT2 tablet. Initially based on jellybellys mod, the package has actually being simplified, thanks to DarthJabba's feedback.

 

The package install will require a stock tablet (preferably running our kasty firmware) obviously with Phone.apk still installed.

 

Quick usage instructions:

1. Start Arctools application, it should be installed if you are running our kasty custom firmware, else you can download latest update here: com.arctablet.arctools.apk

2. Select "Disable/move Phone.apk"  in the packages list.

3. Press Download button, wait for the quick download to complete

4. Press Install apps button

You'll have to Grant access to Arctools when you get a SuperUser request, this is required to allow copying system files.

After the script has run, wait a few seconds and restart your tablet.

5. please verify that the script worked and the Phone functions are gone and let us know Wink

 

One caveat of this script, as DarthJabba pointed out is that the About tablet / Status menu will make the Settings Force Close.

 

Thank for your feedback.

You need a rooted system, such our kasty firmware, is that the case ?

Cheers.

Works here. I also got those two errors again first time I ran it - then I remembered I had already renamed Phone.apk. So I put it back, and ran again, and got no errors this time.

Run it again. Then reboot and see whether the "phone radio" is eating battery life. A good tool to use for this is "GSam Battery Monitor" (available free on Google Play). If the mod worked, then "phone radio" will show 0% power use.

My Solution: 

 

Tried first time: no goo.

Rebooted: tried second time, SU lunched and asked for permission. i Granted permission tried to install: no go.

 

Rebooted again, after gave SU permission, and tried to install again: now it did work!!

Check if it works this way for you too kykif.

Thats a known issue. when that happens you need to push power button till it forces turn off than reboot again.
