I want to disable the airplane mode in order to return to normal state. After a long press on power button, I do have the "device options", however nothing happens when I press Airplane mode (airplane mode enable). I am stuck in airplane mode

Have you experience this? Is it a known bug? How can I disable airplane mode.

Which ROM you are using? Did you tried Basic fix "Restartng your Device"? – Akhil May 20 '13 at 6:51

I think this device is not the galaxy-s, but the galaxy-sl. if so the tagging should be adjusted. – Mindwin Sep 30 '14 at 19:31


If that doesn't work, remove the battery and SIM card, wait 1 minute and re-insert SIM + battery and restart.

Run this on adb. This will toggle Airplane Mode.

adb shell am start -a android.settings.AIRPLANE_MODE_SETTINGS
adb shell input keyevent 19 ; sleep 0.1; adb shell input keyevent 23; sleep 0.3; adb shell input keyevent 4;
echo "Toggled airplane mode";
