Default Warning! Samsung's My Magazine Home.apk

Warning!

Samsung's My Magazine Home.Apk reads your contacts as mail is received -

and a side effect bug. If "My Magazine Home.apk" is removed from the system folder and you have email notification switched on - you will get an error, email will stop working if you attempt to open your incoming email from the notification bar...

Default App Ops? - the answer? Maybe?

This is a function of trust I guess -

On my ROM, Beanstown106's Jellybeans Rom for Note 3 - *MJE version; I opted to put My Magazine back but go to App Ops, find Magazine, and revoke permissions for reading contacts, and updates etc... Will it work, dunno?

To further prevent "stuff" from happening with Magazine, I cracked open SQL Lite editor, found the My Magazine database, and looked in the config table - stripped it of all personal account information (e.g. contacts, music, video, etc) - whatever I can find... whacked it...

Have a nice day

I have two My Magazine's listed:
"sstream.app" & "com.samsung.android.app.lounge"

I've looked in both and i dont see any personal info anywhere.

more info?

The permissions required to run the app tell the tale. I saw the permissions and immediately closed the app. I got no time for that jibber jabber.

The interesting part is freezing it causes the problem. So whatever actually hands email notification over to My Magazine still tries to do it. I wonder if figuring out what is handing it off could be patched up.
