unfortunately, radiooptions binary is not there at /system/bin even though your rom said install completed.
any other ideas? would I get better chances if I upgrade to Gingerbread? frankly speaking I don't care what version
of Android OS on my phone, as long as I can disable cell radio - it's the ultimate goal. maybe you can recommend
custom rom?

I am not a galaxy S owner, so I can't quite recommend a rom, but there are many choices here: http://rootzwiki.com/forum/273-i9000-development/
If you are still running stock froyo, that may cause issues for the radiooptions binary. Try a CM7 build or an ICS build.

You may have to mount /system in CWM before you flash the mod. We have to do that on the Charge for most of our add-ons.

EDIT: I just took a look at the update script, and I think I see what the trouble is. the location of busybox in the script is /sbin and may not be the same location on your phone (on my Charge, busybox is installed to /xbin). determine where you have busybox installed, and then modify the path in the update script, and it should work (jellybellys, please correct me if I am wrong).

As long as busybox is installed (it is in CWM by default) the system partition should be mounted for you:
Code:
<br />
show_progress(1, 15);<br />
ui_print("Wifi Only Mode");<br />
ui_print("For any rom, any device");<br />
ui_print("Mod developed by Jellybellys");<br />
ui_print(" ");<br />
ui_print("Mounting system...");<br />
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");<br />
show_progress(2, 15);<br />
ui_print("Installing radio off mod...");<br />
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");<br />
show_progress(3, 15);<br />
ui_print("Removing unneeded apps...");<br />
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "rm", "/system/app/Messaging.apk");<br />
show_progress(4, 15);<br />
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "rm", "/system/app/Phone.apk");<br />
show_progress(5, 15);<br />
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "rm", "/system/app/TelephonyProvider.apk");<br />
show_progress(6, 15);<br />
ui_print("Unmounting system...");<br />
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");<br />
show_progress(7, 15);<br />
ui_print("Installation complete!");<br />
show_progress(15, 15);<br />

""JUST A HEADS UP FOR THE MOTOROLA PHOTON CROWD ""
I wanted to turn my locked motorola photon into a media device but unfortunately this zip FC'd like crazy. the bad part is that on locked photons you have to boot the device to bootstrap recovery. with a PHONE.apk FC every second I can't I have to go back and flash multiple SBF's bc I can't get into my recovery and flash my backup.

hey.
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!

Hi,I tried this on my galaxy sgh-t959v,rooted,also used basic with a twist through sgs kernal flasher.I downloaded the updated version of your rom and installed as suggested,everything was installed with no errors then rebooted.The only thing different I notice is the signal bars are gone and replaced with the no symbol.I still have all the useless apps,phone symbol and dial pad,as well as the no sim card screen.I am newer than new to this so I suspect I made an error somewhere.Hoping the op is still roaming around here somewhere,if you could help me out with some suggestions I would be grateful as this is all quite fun and frustrating at the same time.Phone came with Gingerbread vuvkj6,firmware 2.3.6,thanks.

Hello All,

I have a seven year old daughter and my old HTC Eris running Android v 2.1.
I am VERY new to this phone modifying business, but finally managed to root the phone and install this mod. It worked just great, turned off the phone radio, WiFi maintained. The problem is that I wanted to use the bluetooth to broadcast to a bluetooth speaker so she could play her music in her room. I could always use an old fashioned wire ...
I have restored from backup so the bluetooth is working now, but so is the phone radio.
Are there ways to keep bluetooth, but disable the phone?

Thanks

You can't flash mods on stock recovery I don't think... I'm pretty sure you have to have a custom recovery like CWM or TWRP

First I wanna say thanks to jellybellys for this, I've been thinking about searching for some like this for days now, and Google delivered.

Second, I too, wanna mantain bluetooth, I use a bluetootooth earphone (a S9) cause the wired ones tend to hang, trap me and/or eject the phone from my pocket in the gym. And my 1 year old grips on them when on my lap or riding the bicicle.

So, thanks for your time and work, and let us know if you can/would modify it to let Bluetooth working

this work on my Samsung Droid Charge - thanks!

my only concern is that even though I turned off mobile data, I still get a pop-up after each reboot that I need to connect to mobile data. just don't want my son to accidentally his "connect", and then drain the battery in 6 minutes while the phone tries to think it is searching for a 4G signal.

I've used this patch on the Sensation, Droid Incredible and Droid RAZR with various CM 10.X ROMS. It's an excellent way to extend battery and repurpose phones as mini-tablets or iPod touch alternatives.

However, it does not appear to work with Android 4.4 Kit Kat based ROMs like CM 11. I just get an endless loop of error messages that say something like "Unfortunately phone has stopped." Are there any chances we might see a new version that will work with Kit Kat or is the patch only intended for Jelly Bean ROMs?
