I'm working on permanently disabling airplane mode in a slightly customized ROM I'm working on. Essentially, I want nothing to change when a user clicks the airplane mode button.

This is on the Verizon Galaxy Tab 2 (sch-i705).

I'm hoping for a simple solution (i.e. deleting some module) that will disable the functionality behind airplane mode or adjust which radios toggle when airplane mode is enabled.

I'm not sure where to start - right now I'm slogging through an upacked system.img with no success, and haven't found anything in my xda/google searches. Ideas of what files I could remove or modify?

So far I've tried looking through existing modules to see if airplane mode is like wifi (ie has drivers or something that can somehow be removed). It was a longshot, and I didn't come up with anything.

Anyone have any idea what I could modify in the system image to adjust which radios airplane mode toggles?

I'm working on designing an educational tablet that can be remotely managed (new content can be pushed, new apps can be added for the students, etc.). The issue is, if a student accidentally (or on purpose) turns on Airplane Mode, I would lose my connection with the tablet and be unable to interact with it, or restore it remotely. Not allowing airplane mode would be an easy way to avoid this problem.

It doesn't seem like there is an easy way to do this though.. I'm trying to sort out whether I could change the radios Airplane Mode toggles, or maybe change the UI so Airplane mode isn't offered as an option (right now it can only be accessed by pushing the power button, because I have access to settings restricted)

Any ideas?

That sounds like that solves your problem to remove airplane mode from the power menu.

Yeah, if I knew how to do that, the problem would be solved. Any idea how to do that?

Not available on my device, unfortunately. I'm on sch-i705 if that makes a difference.

Maybe check in developer options? If you don't have it, tap the build number multiple times...
