Hey Guys! How to remove the internet connection form Boox M92

Hello
I have a M92 device.
But I don't want to use it to connect with the internet
I just want to read books not news on the website.
So, is there anyone can tell me how to remove the internet connection or wifi connection.
It seems that m92 is based on ANdroit. Therefore, relevant modifications shall be accessible.
Thank you

Nickmann

Wifi is switched on only when you browse the web and when you leave the web browser you may decide whether leave WiFi on or let it switch off.

So, if you will just read books, WiFi (and so internet) will be off.

Maybe in a following firmware release there should be a separate wifi management screen, with global on-off, as in most smartphones/pads/computers.

I see. Well browsing is not very exciting using m92. It might cure you. If not, it could be possible to open M92 and remove (forever) the circuitry. Also it could be possible to erase a driver or remove links to web browser.

Maybe some of Linux gurus could tell you what has to be deleted.

EDIT.
Addded missing not above.

you can install this firmware. It is from a device where there is no module Wi-Fi

yes, I think the Linux-based framework is possible to do that kind of thing

Be careful, the common M92 are "international model", Booxtor said that the chineses firmware aren't for the international model. It could be working or not ...

I think the most elegant solution is to rename (or remove) from the firmwaire de wifi driver, before to patch the device.

An access by SSH seems possible : http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=163826. I image,you can locate the driver and rename it.
