Flight mode turns off wifi but not the modem (cellular)
After hours of trial and error, I flashed the custom firmware (v.0.7.3) onto the modem like described here: https://github.com/the-modem-distro/pinephone_modem_sdk
They also describe how to flash the stock firmware.

I got the modem finally running using "sudo mmcli -m any -e"

After this odyssey, I am happy, the modem works again. I almost ordered a new one since it seemed bricked.

Activating flight mode doesn't affect the modem. It only turns of wifi. And also, I have to manually reactivate the modem after waking up the phone...
I will rename this topic accordingly.

I've tried a lot of things and maybe I broke something. Does somebody know, how to determine, what is affected by flight mode?
Now, that I know, how to flash the modem, I wonder whether it helps to re-flash the whole OS to solve this or is the modem in a state preventing flight mode from changing it? Then flashing the OS wouldn't help either. Any way to check this?
