Since ICQ is removed now the latest update gave us a smith app. From the looks of it they track data use like the amount of usage . It's more like a throttle to help keep towers from gettin overloaded ..

Smith.apk is the updated version of htcloggers.apk I broke back end of September - http://infectedrom.com/showthread.ph...rity-Elevation

I'm guessing it may never have been HTC's program, new signatures are not HTC's on the APK. Besides the signature change it looks like the main change was it is not using TCP ports anymore but Unix domain sockets. Everything else is essentially the same app with just a new name.

By default it looks like it looks at battery and CPU speeds? I noted this in the previous apk version as well. It has the capability of enabling System & Battery log collection it appears but I have not dug into it completely still.

It has an option to upload to FTP, but its disabled by default and the only codepath to update it ive seen so far is by dialing a secret code *#*#SMITH#*#* and enabling it.

I do not see anything to do with throttling or anything network related - for now it looks semi harmless outside of wasting some cycles - it just looks like its capable of uploading full system logs if a user checks the box in the menu accessible only by key combo and fills in an FTP address. I do not see a remote enable as of now...

Before I removed all of it, I forced it to stop. I lost connectivity for the second before it restarted itself. Same when I deleted it and all its junk. Lost cell service for a second and it came right back.
