Want to remove CarrierIQ (AT&T sypware)? and improve battery life at the same time?
1. Download EZ Package Disabler (Samsung)
2. Open EZ Package Disabler and find 'Android System'

Click the search "magnifier" from the top right of the home screen.

Type: Android System into the search box.

Select Android System (not the check mark or the star, the actual name itself.)

Select MANAGE and scroll down the list to the end; IQService will be there.

I repeat my previous post: "No MANAGE option found". Or as @jaaluk posted: "No MANAGE button".

Click the search "magnifier" from the top right of the home screen.

Type: Android System into the search box.

Select Android System (not the check mark or the star, the actual name itself.)

Select MANAGE and scroll down the list to the end; IQService will be there.

This still exists?

:confused:

This is surveyllance tool.

This is another motive that they don't do Stock Rooted Roms by default.

I purged this when i had my first 2.2 froyo.


The device is mine...

(Not rooted)
The manage button is present in the latest version of Ez Package Disabler Pro ... version 2.5.5
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hecorat.packagedisabler

1. I clicked the button to disable bloatware it found 48 items.
2. I disabled anything that was blatantly AT&T or Samsung garbage.. (Still disabling stuff little by little)
3. I disabled carrier iq as described here.
4. Remove garbage like VR gear, Facebook, Instagram.. (If I recognized it I flushed it)

My phone boots so fast now! Tons of garbage gone.. Battery life was the point so I will see if I get a usable phone again.

What is the difference between EZ and package disabler pro? What you prefer?
Ez has the ability to disable certain sub component within a process while package disable pro only allow you to disable the whole process. While EZ is more powerful, don't bother getting it as the licensing mechanism has been broken for a while and the dev has not bothered to fix it so you wouldn't be able to use the app even if you purchase it.

You can disable packages and you can disable services within a package. For instance with 'Carrier IQ' you are disabling a service within the Android System. If you disable Android System the obvious result would happen, don't do that. But you can and I do disable Carrier IQ
I found a better package disabler! It doesn't have as nice of a front end but it works just as well and it imports the same xml files. It also disables 109 packages from the gates! I think it's best friggin feature is, it NEVER goes down.. You still can't disable software updates but it is really powerful. (in addition to using a disabler ALSO disable anything you can disable under DEVICE|APPLICATOINS|APPLICATION MANAGER <make sure to click more, show system apps> -- then disable what you can/don't need.. If you can disable here it stops it from running most efficiently)
Notes: You can manually disable anything except "KLMS Agent" and this works still.
