comment Using ADB with usb debugging disabled, and no root
Sorry to read that it didn't help. But we might have some other pointers: have you checked the section of "related" questions next to your device, e.g. on how to possibly get USB debugging activated again? Some devices also have it activated by default in recovery-mode.

comment How to stop Android assuming all wi-fi connections give internet access
See the link above. Short explanation: Your device just sees the hotspot. How should it decide whether to accept it or not, based on which servers are reachable? If any server is available, that might be valid – as you might have credentials for those "protected hotspots" as well.

comment Samsung S2 locked due to many attempts - How can I recover photos
Maybe you should start with our locked-out tag-wiki, and follow up to Can not unlock my Android device as have no internet connection? That might help you to get full access to your device again.

comment System App Permissions
Though, the answerer should have provided some more details – at least a short reasoning why it's not possible. Short is one thing, too short another (which is why it turned up in the review queue as "low quality", by the way).

OK, so I'll leave at this point. OP should test if it works for him, and then accept whichever of the two answers proved correct.

comment System App Permissions
Yuck. So it seems the entire question is rather XY. What are we talking about? What is really needed? Why does it need to be "a system app with root access"? Maybe I rather delete my answer straight away?

comment System App Permissions
Oh. I might have gotten that part wrong (so it's only protection-level "system" then; but what, please, is the difference between "signature" and "signatureOrSystem" then? There's no separate "protectionlevel system"). But please correct me: I thought it's not possible to "give an app root access" and then unroot the device while still having that sticking. So this is the closest one can get to, given the circumstances.

@t0mm13b Actually, that TiBu approach should work: root → install TiBu → convert app to system app (i.e. it gets installed to /system/apps) → uninstall TiBu → unroot. Done. That app would have access up to "signatureOrSystem" protection levels then. But giving it root access is something different (and probably not even needed here).

Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! This seems to be an XY problem. Instead of trying to get your supposed solution working, maybe you want to check Can not unlock my Android device as have no internet connection?

comment Android poweroff timer
There are plenty more candidates – which is why I linked the "automation" tag. Please understand we don't feature "app recommendations" here (that's strictly off-topic – the reason why I re-phrased your question a little to not get "closed" for that, see our help center). So you might either use the "terminal approach", or check on Play/AppBrain for "related apps". One more hint for a possibly good candidate: Timeriffic (as you aim a time-based solution).

You could do the same locally on the device via some terminal app. Or use some automation helper like Llama or Tasker.
