I've had trouble with tb before. For example today I supposedly backed up those IQ apps and then when I tried to restore them tb just told me they were being restored but never finished the process. I had to force quit tb.

THis is from the link posted by "just some dude."

I did "update 1."
UPDATE: there are two files you need to freeze .comHTCIQagent 2.2 and IQRD 2.2
But carrier IQ app said I still had the software so I explained how I supposedly removed them with tb but when I did "update" 2 they were still there...

Then did "update 2"
Update 2 Thanks to Graphics Anomaly!
In case anyone is going to try this, here are the steps again:

1 - Use Root Explorer
2 - Go to "/system/[COLOR=#F8941D ! important][COLOR=#F8941D ! important]app[/COLOR][/COLOR]" and delete (or rename) "IQAgent.[COLOR=#F8941D ! important][COLOR=#F8941D ! important]apk[/COLOR][/COLOR]" & "IQRD.apk"
3 - Go to "/system/bin" and delete (or rename) "iqd" & "iqfd"
4 - Boot into recovery, clear cache and dalvik, and reboot.
5 - Sprint/HTC tracking crap. (:

I haven't done update 3 or 4 yet because I don't quite understand what to do with 3... maybe I'm supposed to create that file and add those lines?

...and I haven't done 4 because I haven't motivated enough to feel like typing all that.

UPDATE 3 Thanks to Bacidath for the original tip and Graphics Anomaly for confirming!


UPDATE 4 run this script in terminal
rm /system/lib/
rm /system/lib/
rm /system/lib/
rm /system/etc/
rm /system/bin/iqfd
rm /system/bin/iqd
rm /system/app/IQRD.apk
rm /system/app/HtcIQAgent.apk
rm /system/app/IQRD.odex
rm /system/app/HtcIQAgent.odex
rm -r /data/data/
rm -r /data/data/

Remove those files to get rid of all IQAgent in the ROM. Graphics has confirmed that there are no issues with removing those files & his Evo is working fine.
Thanks again for all the input...Oh and granite I've been around and posting. I have at least 1 or 2 unresolved threads if you haven't seen them.
Device = Evo4G > Samsung G4
ROM = rooted stock for now
Kernel = stock for now
