Arrow [SCRIPT] Remove Cell Standby Service (No Effect on Battery Life!)

WARNING: I've added this to my script and for some reason it has an adverse effect on the "n" button and Lock Screen if used BEFORE you complete the SetupWizard !!!
WARNING: Again BE WARNED if you do this mod before you finish the setup wizard you will loose the functionality of your "n" button and Lock Screen !!!



I have a feeling poster before me copied and pasted this from somewhere because notice how in his first sentence he says "Phone.apk and TelephonyProvider.apk" but then his script says "Mms.apk"....what happened to Phone.apk because there is no Mms.apk in the system folder on any Nook I have. So below is the corrected script and also this entire process in done in dos instead of in adb;

Code:
Select Code
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb shell mv /system/app/Phone.apk /system/app/Phone.OLD
adb shell mv /system/app/TelephonyProvider.apk /system/app/TelephonyProvider.OLD
adb reboot
There is no adverse effect from doing this & it's confirmed after while in NookTools there is no Cell Standy service running.

Download [REMOVAL]


Want to undo this process?
Code:
Select Code
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb shell mv /system/app/Phone.OLD /system/app/Phone.apk
adb shell mv /system/app/TelephonyProvider.OLD /system/app/TelephonyProvider.apk
adb reboot

90% of the internet are sites posting info from other sites. Be glad he didn't slap on some ads.

I'm new here, but trying to learn.

Your code is:
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
adb shell mv /system/app/Phone.apk /system/app/Phone.OLD
adb shell mv /system/app/TelephonyProvider.apk /system/app/TelephonyProvider.OLD
adb reboot

would it make sense to add:
adb shell mount -o remount,ro /dev/block/mmcblk0p5 /system
before the reboot? Or does that get done automatically upon reboot? I assume it is bad to leave it rw and not reset it to ro?

Thanks for this, I ran 'most' of your other script.
Auto-nooter, your script, adw launcher and it is coming along nicely. Still debating remapping the volume keys to back/menu...

yes, the system partition goes back to RO after a reboot
