I use the Amazon Kindle Fire (Android 2.3.4) model no: D01400 FCCID:ZEV-1229. I use this device in developing Android apps.

In my device WiFi is available, and also cyberoam for security purposes. I want to test the device is connected or not connected with WiFi.

I know if you want to check the network connection and you have cyberoam then you want put your device in airplane mode. How can I do that?

  • @Izzy have u any idea about this? Commented Apr 10, 2013 at 11:30
  • Nope. If I had, I would have written. Just updated your post to make it better readable and easier to find for those being familiar with the Fire. I have no idea how far Amazon might have modified Android. You might have an entry in the power-menu (long press power button while screen is on) or not. There should be an option in Settings->Networks & Wireless -- but as "no network" would mean "no current ads on the lockscreen", Amazon might have removed that as well. I'm not familiar with their devices, sorry.

On the original Kindle Fire Airplane mode does not seem to exist, but you can turn off wireless using these directions:

  1. Tap the Quick Settings (the Gear) icon in the top right hand corner of the Home screen.
  2. Tap Wi-Fi.
  3. Ensure Wireless Networking switch is in the off position.

On the new Kindle Fire you can enable airplane mode by doing the following:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap Wireless.
  2. Tap On next to Airplane Mode

  • Can you use Dalvik Debug Monitor (per the instructions here) to take a screen shot of what you do see so that I can get a better idea of the issue you are experiencing?

There is a metric boatload of Airplane Mode apps on the Play store. You might find one there that meets your needs.
