both methods require a root explorer.

Method 1:
navigate to the system folder
find "App" folder
Change the name of "dtcp_apk.apk" to dtcp_apk.bat

Method 2:
Navigate to system folder
find "App" folder
change permissions of Dtcp_apk.apk to all blank

Hope this helped someone.

You go to the setting of ES,then at the bottom of setting menu, it has Root setting. Go there and checked all check boxes. If you can, that's mean your KF is rooted.

Adding a Boot Animation

Thanks for this info. I used the 2nd method and it worked immediately. Are there Boot Animations for the KFHD? Or can Boot Animations from, say my LG ICS Spectrum work?

if you have adb available, you should be able to do this without a root explorer.
use one of the following codes:

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
mv /system/app/dtcp_apk.apk /system/app/dtcp_apk.apk.bak
exit
exit

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
chmod 000 /system/app/dtcp_apk.apk
exit
exit

adb shell
su
mount -o remount,rw /system
rm /system/app/dtcp_apk.apk
exit
exit

The first one will rename it. The second one will clear its permissions. The third one will remove it completely.
It should go without saying, but its not my fault if you screw something up, or if it is necessary to have this apk in your system, and you use the third method. I haven't tried it, but it should work. I do know what the commands do.

Didn't also work for me with es file explorer the first time i've tried it, although i've enabled all root options.
Rebooting the device helped me, but it's also important to make sure that you give the explorer the permission to change system data ;)

Thank you so much!!! Method 1 worked great. Also renamed the odex file to .odex.bat through root explorer. Note, in root explorer you will probably have to push the little 'Mount R/W" button once you get into system/app

    all those settings are checked-- I somehow managed to delete the APK and I still have ads

    I didn't attempt to delete the apk, I just renamed it, following the first method in the original posting. I get wallpapers, such as film reels, book spines, chess pieces, and draughts pieces, which change when the screen locks and unlocks; but no product ads.

    Thank you! I used method 1 with Root Explorer the first time and ads were still there on reboot. I navigated back to the file and it had indeed reappeared with the .apk extension but method 2 worked like a charm. $15, my ass! I already paid for the damn thing!
