why wasn't this mentioned in the first place?
This is an OLD thread!

YOU should have created a new one instead of posting to old threads. ;-)

It could not be listed in the first place because it is not my Thread and even not a tutorial which needs to be updated.

Additionally you could have found this answer if you just google for it.

Since JellyBean 4.2, it is no longer possible to toggle the Airplane mode. I love Android more and more :( Some day, they will decide for you which app you must launch...
For once, this was a good decision from Google. It's a huge security risc if each app can toggle airplane mode.
