It may be that removing that broke some service that was being used by the ad serving aps on your phone. A useful tip if so. That apk does not produce ads by itself though, or else everyone would get them all of the time.
well, i can't imagine what else would do it... unless it has something to do with subscribed feeds data that is stored in /data/data/
all i know is that it surely appeared to be the culprit on my phone after much searching and log hunting, and when it was removed i never had such ads again.
