Default [GUIDE] Switch between 2g and 2g/3g automatically [Tasker app needed]

Hi! Here are some profiles for the paid app Tasker which switch your phone to mixed(2g/3g) mode automatically if you turn data connections on, and turn to 2g only if data is off.

Prerequisites:
-semcphone.apk which enable network mode switching, Many systemui mods contain this file, an example is:

-root

-Tasker installed, basic knowledge of the app.


Install:
Extract and copy files from attachment to sdcard/Tasker/Profiles. Import profiles into tasker.
Test app by toggling data connection (by widget or in notification bar)

Tested in stock 587 ICS.
As a bonus the phone will boot with 2g only setting if you have data connections disabled, so the network setting bug in ICS is fixed with this mod also.

I am sure that it can be done in jb. But I have locked bootloader so I can't develop or test it.

Do you think that this pre-requisite is met by official firmwares released by SE? (i have an xperia mini pro with gingerbread 2.3.4)

For GB the following mod contains the needed semcphone.apk I think. So you have to install this first (or only semcphone.apk from it)

Ok, thanks for the link. I won't install that entire MOD but i will just pick the semcphone.apk from it

Where is this .apk supposed to be copied?

Copy to /system/app. Change permissions to rw-r-r, then reboot phone.

Make a backup before if you are unsure.
