Default Class 0 SMS (flash SMS) on Android 2.1+

Hi!

Have anyone noticed that Android removed the hidden API sendRawPdu() from the Interface ISms?

androidjavadoc.com/1.0_r1_src/com/android/internal/telephony/gsm/ISms.html

(I'm not allowed to link yet because I'm a new user ).

The API was still present at 1.6.

Is there a way to implement this into a custom ROM so that we could keep continuing to send these class 0 SMS'? Or is there a new method that I've missed?


Cheers

Flash SMS works fine for me.

Not very polished application, but does correctly send flash SMS.
Google/LG Nexus 5: rooted, unlocked bootloader, Android KitKat 4.4.2

I was under the impression that "FlashSMS" did *not* work with newer Android releases. At least that what I've read about it. The main reason why I'm pursuing this is because MyPhoneExplorer lost it's capability to send class 0 SMS through the phone (after v1.6) due to Android removing the API completely. And it shouldn't be too hard to implement this API in a custom ROM? Anyone?

Did the application crash? Or is the Flash SMS not sent? Maybe it's your operator that blocks Flash SMSes?

Hmm, strange.. I wonder what API he used. I might try that app.

I'm still up for implementing the API mentioned, though.

Nothing happened when I hit send. No crash or message. Should have checked logcat, too late now though.. you could be right about lockdown by operator too.. haven't tried sending from that sim card befo..

Did you get an error or what happened? I just got "SMS send end" popup when I tried to press the send button.

EDIT:
Nevermind, it worked.
