Since Android 4.2 (and up) only system apps (installed by YOU the phone builder) are allowed to take control of the flight mode and let the user programm it to switch on or off at a certain time. This means that ALL the previously available apps that we could use to control the flight mode are now “out of order”. They simply do not work anymore and only an app installed from the phone builder is allowed to control the flight mode.
Why is that important ? Because off course I put my phone on flight mode at night, and now if I want my phone to get out of the flight mode at 6 in the morning in order for people to be able to join me in case of emergencies, why the hell do I have to put an alarm and wake up simply to switch it on ?!? Why such a modern phone cannot let me sleep longer and simply be programmed to automatically get out of the flight mode at a defined time ?
And please, please, don’t tell me about rooting things. People don’t buy a 600€ phone to have to spend hours with overly complicated procedure in order to get such a normal and basic function.
So, are you finally implementing that control function ?
