This will remove the RCS Service/ VoLTE Service icons that appear on the device after rooting.

Note: This requires ADB to be installed as well as knowledge of Push/Pull commands.

Step 1: Download Attached File.

Step 2: Type the following command
Quote:

adb remount
adb push (location) /system/app/imsservice/imsservice.apk

Step 3: Reboot


I will make a flashable zip when I have the time. For now this works just as well.

(a) thank you! I can report success here. I'll post back if anything odd comes up, but so far so good.

(b) don't forget to mount system R/W in your instructions, either from the device or with "adb shell mount -o rw,remount /system" or something

(c) I added a reference to this post in my how-to notes as one of the recommended next steps

Thanks again!

This should work.
Put the file into your root folder of C:\adb
open up cmd and type
Code:
cd C:\adb
Copy and paste
Code:
adb shell mount -o rw,remount /system
Then
Code:
adb push imsservice.apk /system/app/imsservice/imsservice.apk
I made a batch file.

Code:
adb wait-for-device
adb shell mount -o rw,remount /system
adb push imsservice.apk /system/app/imsservice/imsservice.apk
Make sure to restart your phone after it's done pushing the apk.

You don't need to change the permissions afterwards?
And I don't know why mine is different but I found my imsservice.apk file in /system/priv-app, not /system/app

So i pushed it through ES File finder, you just need to set permissions afterwards or com.google.phone will crash repeatedly. Installed in /system/priv-app

I either did something wrong or this eng boot is causing problems. Battery life is horrible, the phone runs very slow and random reboots. I set the cpu to interactive and tried ondemand, And flashed a clean install of the stock firmware (pb6) and factory reset before flashing the eng boot and rooting. When I get home from work I'm going back to stock. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help?

Perhaps you could try posting in the right section?

Yeah I renamed the original file in /system/priv-app/imsservice/imsservice.apk to imsservice.apk.bak and copied it into /system/priv-app/imsservice and set permissions to 0644.
Everything worked out smooth which is actually surprising because it's odexed.

If you do it using the ADB push method, you won't have to set permissions (I didn't). On my Verizon Galaxy S7 (SM-G930V), on the most recent OTA, the file was definitely in /system/app YMMV, apparently

Perhaps because this process gets completely disabled like the app was completely removed... because it just might be the case.

If you took a look in my Root guide at the bottom I told how to fix the slow/lag of the engBoot.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/veri...-knox-t3410624


to fix the lag and overheatness
Install this first or another other kernel/CPU changer
This one works fine: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ladiutor&hl=en
  1. Open up the APP
  2. Go into the CPU settings
  3. Set CPU Governor to ondemand
  4. Apply on boot (You don't have to.)
