Lightbulb (ICS/JB/KK)All Devices) Universal-NFC-Deströyer 1.7

ICS/JB/KK-All Devices
The Deströyer is a simple CWM flashable script for delete all apk`s/xml`s/lib`s etc which are needed for NFC (Near Field Communication) function on "ALL° devices running ICS/JB/KK.
I have it created,because i have noticed that some same Devices have different features, one version with and one without NFC,like LG L5.
So its very easy to delete all NFC related files etc on Phones that not support NFC,because most Custom Roms have NFC inbuilded(CM,PA,Pac),
The other thing is that I personally never use nfc, but it still consumes a lil bit resources, and in some phones without NFC support can lead to deep sleep / wakelock problems.

My opinion is that to delete all the NFC related files are the best way to solve such problems,or when never needed.
Simply flash this zip in recovery(only tested with CWM at moment)and reboot,done!!!!

What is deleted:
system/priv-app/Tag.apk - (KitKat)

Its tested without problems on ICS/JB/KK with different devices!!!
Maybe its helpfull for some peeps!!!
When this thread is in wrong section,than many sorry!!!

Thanx+Cred`s to f3tus for test and suggestions!!!
Thats all,i wish a nice Day and many Greeeeetz!!!
Stay addicted!!!!!!

Changelog: update to 1.7,fixed installation aborted issue,totaly rebuilded
Changelog: update to 1.6,fixed some lil things and changes
Changelog: update to 1.5,added a forgotten thing to delete
Changelog: update to 1.4,now with support for all roms too.
