[edit] FSO-based distros

For FSO-based distros that don't have a GUI to do this you can use the commands below from the terminal, or add them to a script. The dbus-send command could be used instead of mdbus for faster execution, but the syntax is slightly different. Full documentation for the FSO commands can be found here and here

[edit] GSM antenna down (stops RF but leaves the SIM available for phonebook & SMS):

mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device org.freesmartphone.GSM.Device.SetAntennaPower False

To enable it again use the same command with True instead of False.

[edit] GSM entirely down:

mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ousaged /org/freesmartphone/Usage org.freesmartphone.Usage.SetResourcePolicy GSM disabled

To set it back to normal use the same command with auto in place of disabled.

[edit] Bluetooth down:

mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ousaged /org/freesmartphone/Usage org.freesmartphone.Usage.SetResourcePolicy Bluetooth disabled

To set it back to normal use the same command with auto in place of disabled.

[edit] WLAN down:

mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ousaged /org/freesmartphone/Usage org.freesmartphone.Usage.SetResourcePolicy WiFi disabled

To set it back to normal use the same command with auto in place of disabled.

Personal tools

To set this from the Command Line:

mdbus -s org.freesmartphone.ogsmd /org/freesmartphone/GSM/Device org.freesmartphone.GSM.Device.SetAntennaPower False
