From DavisNT answer on Stack Overflow, There exist a simple workaround on rooted devices. To enable Airplane Mode the following root shell commands can be used: settings put global airplane_mode_on 1 am broadcast -a android.intent.action.AIRPLANE_MODE --ez state true To disable Airplane Mode these root shell commands can be used: settings put global ...

TL;DR: When you switch internet connections you get another IP address, the online services have to drop and re-authenticate because it is the only way to know who you are from a new IP. It has nothing to do with Android. It has nothing to do with Android, and everything to do with how TCP connections and IP addresses work. When you switch cell towers, the ...

You can find the code that produces this output in SignalStrength.java in the Android framework. Even if you don't know Java, it's pretty easy to see which raw value is which. If there are any values you don't understand (the names are pretty concise and only make sense if you're familiar with phone standards), you can read the inline documentation ...

Phones based on Qualcomm Snapdragon, like the padfone X, have their band settings stored in NVRAM, in a field called rf_bc_config. This will be set in the factory to match the band choices embedded into the hardware (radio components in the RF front-end on the device). The value can be readout using Qualcomm service tools like QPST or QXDM, but it is not a ...

The consequences of disabling the RIL daemon (rild) is hardware dependent. Because RIL is getting more and more involved in all aspects of Radio related items, including WiFi. The easiest way to stop RIL is by killing rild. But you need to have a rooted device to do this. Open a command shell and get root prompt (#). # kill -9 `pidof rild` You can then ...

(Previous) Nexus 4 owner reporting in. People at XDA had long been using hybrid modems with custom ROMs like CM. It seems specific versions are needed for each major Android version (JB/KK/LP+), but there's a nifty app right here you can try out: LINK: Google Play. Also, there's no special radio for CM13. No custom ROM team makes radio themselves. Just ...

Set airplane mode. Under phone setting, enable airplane mode. When this happens your phone's WiFi will turn off, but you can activate WiFi again. Airplane mode ONLY disables your phones radio. It usually turns off other communication features such as WiFi and Bluetooth but these can be turned on again. There is also a detailed article on using an Android ...

I don't know of a user interface in Android to enumerate the radio frequencies that the device handles. However, to give you the direct answer you were looking for, the Padfone X lacks UMTS 1700/2100, which is different from the LTE 1700/2100 that it supports.

For those having rooted snapdragon-based device there is an easy way to obtain LTE bands supported by radio hardware. Free app found at https://t.me/ru_fieldtest_modemcaps/5 could show you explicit list similar to the following: LTE Bands : B1 (2100 FDD) B2 (1900 FDD) B3 (1800 FDD) B4 (2100 FDD)...

FWIW I discussed a few ways to disable just the mobile connection here for a different reason but with the same result... depending on your Android version (you didn't mention which you were using), it's as easy as selecting the mobile icon in the notification settings to switch it off, or just selecting an invalid APN under Wifi->Mobile networks->Access ...

Just download OpenSignal from Play Store.

Update So, actually, I've tried to install magisk, which I believe is the culprit.

When you turn on your device, start adb shell and enter stop service rild. This would stop the RILD service and you can then use your phone for other purposes. However, on restart, the service would start again. For that, you need to edit your init.rc file. Just delete the lines that are starting the RILD service and then the RIL would not be a part of the ...

Finally I found the answer to my problem! I took my phone to another expert and he told me that the Baseband IC is gone and it is a hardware problem. He could fix it if I can get him the IC as it is not available in our markets because of being a rarely used korean phone. This thing is confirmed by another forum post here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/...

I'm back up and running. Here's what I know at this point. I'm posting it here because I think many people may experience the same behavior. After much back and forth with Simple Mobile (note that they share some infrastructure with T-Mobile, Tracfone, etc., so users of those services may be affected as well) they found that my cellular data had been ...

Chances are most likely that the SIM card you are using is not LTE enabled. You can check with the service provider on upgrading the SIM. Once the SIM is upgraded, install Open Signal application in the phone and test for 4G signal coverage.

You can find the frequency of a device (as long as it was sold in the USA) by searching the devices FCC ID. This is a unique identifier used for authorizing the device to transmit at licensed frequencies. The Padfone X has two FCC IDs, so you will have to figure out which one applies (try checking under the battery cover): MSQT00S, MSQT00D

Killing the daemon is not the correct way although it would kill the service but you won't be able to access it again. Type stop service rild in adb shell and it would work again for other services properly. You can check by typing ps if rild process is there or not. Just worked on this a few days back.

NetGuard and AdGuard will both allow you to accomplish your stated goal. Both apps allow you to specify whether each installed app on your Android device can use WiFi, cellular data, or both (try doing that on an iPhone!). Even more impressively, both NetGuard and AdGuard can help you specify whether or not an app can access the internet when the screen is ...

Yes you can do this. On my phone you go into Connection Settings and in Data Usage you can choose which app to make a "Mobile Data Only" app.

As far as I know, android won't use cellular data at all when wifi is enabled. On a regular machine I'd create routes for whatsapp to use the celular interface, and have a default route using the wifi interface. One solutio might be to use a VPN server at home, and connect to that on your phone. If you run OpenVPN op tcp port 443, then you'll probably ...

The cell radio in a mobile phone is designed only to receive and transmit at certain frequencies. It can't pick up an arbitrary transmission such as a radio car key, regardless of whether it's in standby or fully on. It's very unlikely that you could even do this by replacing the device's radio firmware, let alone with a normal app. At the same time, even if ...

Cyanogenmod nightly builds are development snapshots. Anything can be broken in them from one night to the next. You shouldn't try to use a nightly for your "everyday" phone as problems like the one you describe are common. Report the bug to the developers and switch to a stable release (or, if you're feeling brave) a release candidate or milestone release.
