GSM, Bluetooth & WLAN turned off (some kind of lock so no app can turn them on?) GPS on per request (it's ok to have it on in aeroplanes)

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
