    Hi,

    I have a Tasker script that I run at 1am until 7am - it just turns Flight mode on to save battery. But since my last android update, it doesn't allow flight mode for some reason.

    I do not want to root my phone. Can Tasker help me here?

    Thanks

    No, newer versions of Android require root permissions to toggle Airplane Mode.

    I wonder if llama has picked up the same limitation?

    I've used the Secure Settings plugin to manage the Airplane Mode state with Tasker on Android 4.2+. You will need root access to do it though.

    Llama is similarly impacted with the root-only Airplane Mode restriction as Android 4.2 did in fact make Airplane Mode a system-level setting.

    The only way I can think of to manage Airplane Mode without root would be to simulate the screen taps necessary for going into the Settings and toggling that function.

    Build a widget with the actions using Elixir 2 or similar and have Tasker try to toggle the widget?

    Without root, Elixir 2 can only open the Settings screen where you can manually toggle Airplane Mode. It still can't toggle it for you. (I just tried it to be sure)

    Again, this is a system-level limitation. The only way around it is with root.

    I've toggled deep settings with Widgetsoid fwiw, no root required, on earlier phones.

    I can't believe that they removed this as an automation option.

    OK, I believe it - but I can't believe it, it's just stupid.

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
