CM6 Auto Toggle 2G/3G
There are many Android device owners who run CyanogenMod ROMS (if you don’t know who cyanogen is, where have you been?) and XDA forum member TheMasterBaron is one of them.
If you’re running CM6, then you might want to try out TheMasterBaron’s Auto Toggle app. The app enables the 2G only setting automatically when your Android device sleeps in order to conserve battery.
The dev states that the app is not polished at the moment as there are other features to come. Note that the app does not change the 2G Only flag whilst in a call since this will reset the radio.
Features of Auto Toggle include:
- Switch to 2G and stay there if WiFi is connected.
- If the screen is off for ore than 10 minutes (configurable), 2G only will enable.
- If the screen is off and battery is below 30% (configurable), 2G only will enable.
- 3G is re-enabled as soon as the screen is turned on unless battery is below the configured percentage.
- Does not switch to 2G if the phone is plugged in (configurable).
To download the apk and for more information including future to-do’s from the dev, check out the application thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
