Default Carrier IQ How to Remove

As the great and wonderful nosey company they are T-Mobile added their version of carrier IQ our phone. Having paid $600 dollars for my phone I feel I should get to choose what is and isn't on my device. All that being said T-Mobile seems to have been pretty sneaky at hiding carrier IQ deep in the settings and it doesn't really show up in most task managers. Even in titanium back-up I couldn't freeze it.

So you want it gone, well here it is.

You need a file explorer such as Root Explorer and then there are 6 files to remove.

Go to system/app and there are 3 files with carrier IQ listed delete all 3. ( Sorry I already deleted them so I don't have the exact name)

Delete IQ-tmobile-release-signed.apk
Delete IQToggle.signed.apk

( Sorry I already deleted them so I don't have the exact name of the 3rd if someone posts I'll update it)

Then go Data/Data and remove the 3 carrier IQ files.

Delete com.carrieriq.tmobile
Delete com.carrieriq.tmobile.IQToggle



I removed these with no issues, but as always do this at your own risk, I am not responsible for your phone.

Or you can simply just flash a stock d802 rom and not worry about it being wrapped up deeper into the framework. They did that by design.

Some people dont like flash ROMs so its nice to have options.

Im saying that freezing/removing those doesnt fully remove it. Its embedded in the framework.

How am I supposed to know? The NSA is gonna surveil all of us regardless of carrier iq being on or off. But if it's off it should be off.
