Already pretty much requires root. It needs a rom that is deodex'd which almost all of them are custom roms which are rooted.

One reason you need to patch it in cwm or bsr is due to it needing to 'fix' jar files. If you read why this isn't a background app (security issues and holes at start up and system may shut it down when memory is needed)

The way it works is tweaking with the permissions given to apps and changes values they receive.

There is an app like that. It needs root. Called privacy blocker. The "patching" takes 10-20mins depending on your phone/tablet and sometimes it doesnt work.

Also Privacy blocker doesnt notify you when it blocks something. And because of the nature of the app, most newer apps or updated ones block it.


in short, an app that does what you want is time consuming and does violate the copyright agreement of apps since it would be 'modifying' something some one owns and has distributed on the google play store. This app svyat made doesn't modify the app that is owned by its creator but modifies how an open source OS (android OS) deals with it's permissions

I have a problem with the PDROID patch I made for Cyanogenmod 7.2 Rc1 (kang, unofficial build by Adfad approx 20th April) on Lg Optimus One. I try to patch the rom, it completes, I flash it but when it comes to boot the bootanimation freezes and to use the phone I have to remove the battery and flash again the "restore" patch. What am I doing wrong? I've already tried mounting /system.
Thanks.

The 'official' Linux patcher got discontinued. There are still older versions floating, as were reposted a few posts above your question, but if you want PDroid in Linux, your best bet is either patching the source directly or running a Windows VM.

Can't wait to test the upgrade! I refuse to upgrade to ICS until this works. Once you have PDroid, you can't go back to a ROM without it!

Anything I can do to help, let me know!

Again, for Checkrom V6 search the rom thread.

Patch made by Sileshnair and working perfectly.

Same here, since the first leaked roms for SGSII, only upgrade permanently after PDroid for ICS comes out

+1 I have no interest in upgrading without Pdroid...
I have a "Donate" button...for those of you that feel compelled to do so.
However, I don't feel I deserve it. Nor will I guarantee any results in return from any such donations.
Although I do appreciate the gesture, a simple thanks will suffice.
