Turning Off Cell standby

    I have read the above threads and can't seen to find something that directly relates to my problem, although I may not completely understand some of the mentions things to do.

    I have a Zenithink C93A Android version 4.1.1 and it IS rooted.

    My battery life indicator shows the following after turning on the tablet.

    1m 43s on battery
    Cell Standby 62%
    Screen 15%
    Android System 15%
    WiFi 10%

    I don't have the Cell Phone dongle attached to the tablet.

    I have put the tablet in Airplane Mode, as suggested, but it still shows that the Cell standby is using most of my battery power.

    I have Juice Defender ultimate and have set the setting there as well to not have the Cell portion turned on.

    Is there some way that I can completely disable the Cell System in the software. I will never use it on line, expect for the WiFi Network here in my home.

    Help and suggestions will be welcomed!

    I found the following script file since i wrote my question above.
    Does anyone know if it will work with my android 4.1.1 version?

    mount("MTD", "system", "/system");

    Looks like it is exactly what is needed to remove the European phone stuff, which I think is causing the problem. If so, how about a step by step instruction on how to apply it.

    If this works, it will probably be very helpful to many other users!

    A big thanks,

    If you don't know how to run a script, I wouldn't run one that removes system files. If you remove the wrong file somehow you've turned your tablet into a clip board (to rest papers on while you write on them). One little overlooked typo could do that.
