[MOD]Any phone, any ROM: Wi-Fi only mode (disable cell radio)

Well I was experimenting around, and here it is. A flashable zip that makes your cell phone not a cell phone. Great for turning an old phone into a media player or something.

What it does:
  • Removes unnecessary apps (Messaging.apk, Phone.apk, TelephonyProvider.apk, Mms.apk, TelocationProvider.apk)
  • Completely turns off cell radio on bootup
  • Installs the radiooptions binary in case your ROM does not include it
  • Prevents emergency calls and 911 calls (good for giving your kids your old phone to play with)
How to install:
  2. Flash zip
  3. Reboot
  4. ...
  5. Profit?

thanks for this!
any chance of the source code for your radiooptions?

regardless of that, someone wanted to use this on a ported ROM for the lg vm670 (optimus v.)
it worked on one rom but not another, so I looked at it for him.
the ported rom had renamed the telephony apks.
I changed the updater-script to match, and posted it for him on android central here.
if you mind, I'll remove it.

Thanks again for your work!

/edit/ I was told the modified zip still wouldn't work on the ROM he wanted to use, so I removed it as superfluous.
But this is nice work regardless of that!
