Disable Cell Standby To Increase Battery Life On Your G Tablet

Have you flashed CM onto your Viewsonic G Tablet?  Noticed any battery drain or usage from ‘Cell Standby’?

XDA forum member raydog153 did and decided to put together an update to remove the apks that have to deal with the Android phone system, which of course does not exist on the G Tablet. The XDA member states that the update has only been tested on CM6.1 b4 ROM.

The update removes four apks – Phone, MMS, VoiceDialer and Telephony Provider.

If you’d rather remove manually using root explorer, that is also of course possible, but either way you should backup your system first.

For more information and to download the update, take a look at the forum thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
