So I used an app from the play store (don't remember which, I'm sure it was the first on the list) and before I did any changes with analytics enabled and disabled it showed CarrierIQ was running. I did the bash script chmod them all to 000 and ran the app again with both analytics enabled and disabled and it showed carrierIQ wasn't running. so I don't know what to tell ya. I may have gotten a false negative with the analytics turned on but I still went ahead and disabled carrierIQ

It needs to run as root in a shell on the phone. The mount command makes the system partition writable. You should reboot after this for the changes to take effect (and for the system partition to go back to read only).

I take no responsibility. If you don't know what you are doing, don't use these.

Code:
# Disable CarrierIQ
mount -o rw,remount -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p45 /system
chmod 000 /system/app/HtcLogLevel.apk
chmod 000 /system/app/HtcLogLevel.odex
chmod 000 /system/app/HtcResetNotify.apk
chmod 000 /system/app/HtcResetNotify.odex
chmod 000 /system/app/QXDM2SD.apk
chmod 000 /system/app/QXDM2SD.odex
chmod 000 /system/app/Smith.apk
chmod 000 /system/app/Smith.odex
chmod 000 /system/app/UDove.apk

chmod 000 /system/priv-app/IQ-tmobile-release-unsigned.signed.apk
chmod 000 /system/priv-app/IQ-tmobile-release-unsigned.signed.odex
chmod 000 /system/priv-app/IQToggle_v1.1.3.signed.apk
chmod 000 /system/priv-app/IQToggle_v1.1.3.signed.odex
chmod 000 /system/priv-app/MyBreeze.apk
chmod 000 /system/priv-app/MyBreeze.odex
chmod 000 /system/lib/libiq_service_tmobile_2.2.so
chmod 000 /data/data/com.carrieriq.tmobile
chmod 000 /data/data/com.carrieriq.tmobile.IQToggle
Code:
# Enable CarrierIQ
mount -o rw,remount -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p45 /system
chmod 644 /system/app/HtcLogLevel.apk
chmod 644 /system/app/HtcLogLevel.odex

chmod 644 /data/data/com.carrieriq.tmobile.IQToggle


Isn't it supposed to be mount -o remount,rw and then the rest?

(btw, mount -o remount,rw /system /system works also...)
