Yes, I read the answers to the question by the link Disable mobile data permanently but I'm interested in a solution related with directories and files on rooted-device and not in using an application or setting(s).

I also read the comments to the question Delete mobile data using Root but the deleting /system/etc/apns-conf.xml dosn't help and I don't have the /system/app/telephony as well as /system/CarrierConfig.apk and /system/SettingsProvider.apk, maybe because I use Android 4.0.4 (?).

I know that to disable Wi-Fi it's enough to obtain root permissions and rename the folder /wifi inside of the /etc to another e.g. /wif. Can we do something like that to permanenlty disable also mobile data for example by renaming some directories or files or edit some file(s)?

  • So in the end telephony and SMS should work but no data connection, right? What about MMS (usually requires an WAP or mobile data connection)? – Robert Jan 24 at 11:04
  • @Robert Yes, I meant mobile Internet only. MMS doesn't matter – stckvrw Jan 24 at 14:04
  • @Robert is there a way or at least a link where I can read about? – stckvrw Feb 1 at 15:49
  • I am sorry but I can't help you on that topic because I simply don't know a way how to do so. – Robert Feb 1 at 15:54
