    Android no longer allows apps (like Tasker) to change the status of Airplane Mode.

    From a user's perspective, this is stupid.

    Surely from some other perspective, it made sense. Anyone know what that would be?

    The same reasoning behind they're SD Card restrictions: Security. I know that to you, as an user, letting an app handle the status of radios might be convenient, but from a security standpoint, it's not. You leave the doors open for a malicious app to take control of your radios, turn them on, and allow a targeted attack.
