Get Back Pre-4.2 Airplane Mode Functionality via Xposed

If you’re running Android 4.2 or 4.3, you will have likely noticed that airplane mode doesn’t exactly work in the same way that it used to work on 4.1 and below. This leads to applications either being unable to directly enable or disable airplane mode from within the app or a notice stating why airplane mode can’t be enabled directly through the app.

Thankfully,  XDA Senior Member DavisNT has come up with a handy Xposed module to get back the pre-4.2 functionality for most applications. The way this module works is by intercepting the airplane mode broadcasts from applications. Once it receives a broadcast, it then enables airplane mode itself. Initially, this was only compatible with Android 4.2 (and not 4.3) since Android 4.3 now blocks these broadcasts, but DavisNT was able to get around this and extend the functionality to Android 4.3 as well.

Since this modification comes in the form of an Xposed module, you’ll naturally need to have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed. From there, simply install the module APK, enable it through the Xposed installer, and reboot.

You can get started by visiting the module module thread.
