Remove Cell Standby Service from Nook Color

Many of our members have noted a thing or two about the Nook Color, but XDA member xboxexpert hit the nail on the head while trying to remove useless processes from the device. As the device is not a phone, having the Cell Standby process running in the background is kinda silly. Particularly, when this process is responsible, for the most part, for the most common battery drain on Android devices. In any case, the dev put together a script to remove this process and as an added bonus, he saw his battery life skyrocket. So, if you think your Nook isn’t up to par with its battery life, it seems that getting it to realize the fact that it is not a phone has a nice effect on it.

Proceed with caution and make sure that you read all the warnings in the first post. Apparently, there are side effects if this script is run before the Setup Wizard has completely finished.

I have a feeling poster before me copied and pasted this from somewhere because notice how in his first sentence he says “Phone.apk and TelephonyProvider.apk” but then his script says “Mms.apk”….what happened to Phone.apk because there is no Mms.apk in the system folder on any Nook I have. So below is the corrected script and also this entire process in done in dos instead of in adb;

You can find more information in the hack thread.
