x-post from General since I can post in here now.

Here is a modified stock AT&T Contacts.apk file without the permanent Yellow Pages contact at the top. The is for rooted users only.

Replace the Contacts.apk in /system/app using Root Explorer. Change it's permissions to RW-R--R--. Reboot!

WARNING: Do not use this for any custom ROMs, only for use on a stock AT&T ROM! Also, remember to make backups...

(I've included the stock one also in case anyone forgot to make a backup

UPDATE: TwoPumpChump (TPC) ROM modded Contacts.apk can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...70&postcount=8

UPDATE: UCLC5 ICS ROM modded Contacts.apk can be found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=2062

It's not possible to make this compatible with other ROMs?

Some users tried with twopumpchumps ROM and say it failed. I don't have a Contacts.apk for the other ROMs but if someone posts them, I can do the same mod for those.

Is there some trick to it? I installed it and Yellow Pages is still there, even after reboot.
