    I am looking to see if anyone has been able to remove the WI FI option completly from the settings menu, or at least to hide it from users.


    Thanks

    Why would you want to do that?

    This is the hacking section of the forum. They can come up with the weirdest ideas just to see if it can be done!

    Weird maybe guys, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't give stuff a try... WE ARE HACKERZ! :D

    jdixon71, it's quite easy to mess with the settings menu... BUT be warned, you do so at your own risk...
    BEFORE YOU START, ALWAYS TAKE A BACKUP OF THE FILE SO YOU CAN RESTORE IT!

    I am assuming you have iFile or can somehow SSH onto your device and edit a plist, right?

    If so, you need to go to var/stash/Applications/Preferences.app
    In there you will find settings.plist
    Edit that file.

    You need to remove the second item in the first array section that looks like this...

    <dict>
    <key>bundle</key>
    <string>AirPortSettings</string>
    <key>isController</key>
    <false/>
    <key>requiredCapabilities</key>
    <array>
    <string>wifi</string>
    </array>
    </dict>

    If you are doing it on iFile (which is easier) with the property list viewer, just delete the key 2: in the "items" array.

    Now look at the settings App. No more wifi... Presto!

    Happy hacking!

    Thanks I will Try it

    The reason for doing this is it will be used as a data storage device only a sort of glorified slide show device
