noCIQ (Carrier IQ removal) for EI22
Because your privacy matters!
11/16/11: Hello, InformationWeek readers!
Any of you who have been around since EB13, who have come from the Evo 4G, or really, who have had a Sprint Android phone at all in the last few years, probably know what Carrier IQ is. If you don't, see the second post.
This mod does precisely what it says on the tin - removes Carrier IQ. For good. No more background process, reduced battery drain, marginally better performance. This package is best suited for stock ROM users and ROM/theme devs - ROM users, you will likely see this mod included in most if not all ROMs from today (11/9) on.
Wipe cache (main menu) and dalvik-cache (under Advanced) in CWM, and flash as normal.

Q: Can I flash this on an odexed ROM, including stock?
A: No! You must be on a deodexed ROM.
Q: I get FCs!
A: Ensure you wiped cache and dalvik-cache. If issues persist, try other common troubleshooting steps. DO NOT report bugs unless you get an FC every single time in a certain place.
Q: This broke (theme/mod/app/etc.)
A: Theme/mod: is it noCIQ-compatible? If not, that's why. Ask the creator to update it. DO NOT USE THEMES/MODS FROM OLDER VERSIONS. Anything else: no. It didn't break it.
Q: I'm a ROM dev/themer. May I use this?
A: Absolutely. Please credit me if you do - other than that, go wild.
