I've been wondering, since skins being so accessible in the community and easy to install and change the UI, does it provide a vulnerability to the system that could be exploited? Being a part of the 'Official Android Forums Foil Hat Wearing Society', this is something I need to know. (I realize I'm making a joke of this, but I really am serious and looking for an in depth answer).

Don't get me wrong here, I absolutely LOVE how easy and accessible it seems to be to re-skin Sense 3. It really is awesome to have these great customization options available through .apk without rooting. I also like that we are getting different skins and ideas coming from different minds than just HTC's. It is amazing, and how phones should be - customizable.

The other week I installed CypiS 'Amazing Sense' Sense 3.0 Skin (for the Sensation but it works on any Sense 3 device). However, it troubled me that there was not a way to uninstall the skin. I looked everywhere I could for a removal option but did not find one and eventually I just hard reset to clear 'Amazing Sense' from the system.

Is there any inherent security risks to adding third party skins to the system? Applications on the market have a security clearance list that shows any special permissions required so you more or less know what you are getting yourself into, and they pass through some semblance of an approval process by Google. Although, this does not mean everything they offer is safe.

I almost wish that HTC would work with the community's best 'Skinners' and gather up the best skins to make them available through official channels like the HTC Hub (I was even apprehensive with signing up for the Hub, but I really wanted more skins - although the ones so far are pretty blah). I would be much more comfortable knowing that it has gone through an approval process of some sort and came from HTC Servers rather than multi-upload.

I know I'm being overly cautious, I don't need anyone to tell me that. In a way I'm playing Devil's advocate here. And yeah yeah yeah I know enough to heed conventional wisdoms like only get apk's from trusted sources and trust people that have experience and a good track record in the communities. I'm not looking for the run of the mill answers. Hopefully someone can help shed some real light on this?

Weird question: If I ever want to un-install this, how do I do that?

If you're rooted, it's in the /data/app folder under "com.htc.skin.Glasskin-2.apk", just delete the file. If you're not rooted...I don't see a way outside of a hard reset.

I don't know if you're being overly cautious. Ever since I installed it, odd things have been happening. My credential storage password has been constantly reset on my phone. DroidWall (a firewall app) was showing me that my music players (Jango and Pandora) were trying to access the internet as root apps. They don't require SU to work. I reflashed my ROM/Kernel. Jango/Pandora still tried to stream music through the root port. I deleted glasskin, and suddenly Jango is going through it's normal channel.

I would advise caution if you use this skin. I'm considering reloading my NANDroid backup just to ensure it's cleared out. It could just be my ROM/Kernel/App mix that did it, but I won't let anything access the net as root. No thank you.

Edit: BTW, my ROM/Kernel are: SteelROM v1.2 w/ Silverneedle Test 5 Kernel

I would agree, after the last skin i tried (amazing) i think...caused bizzare behavious. e.g. If the wife texted me a song from Amazon player would start on its own and would stop the moment i put in the password. otherwise it would keep playing. Bluetooth to MyGig when using car dock would hang. I did a hard reset to make sure it was gone. Phone is normal now I am trying to get it back customized the way i had it.

It's an apk. You can uninstall it through your file manager, like astro. I have downloaded a few different skins from XDA, and they all can be deleted without root.

Are you saying you don't know how to install non market apps to your phone?

So are you guys saying this Skin is not-safe to install?
Should I reset my phone? I haven't noticed anything weird. I'm un-rooted.

Edit: I ran a Lookout scan. Everything appears fine and it working normally.

I know the answer is on this forum somewhere. But you can do a search on youtube and there a few videos that show you how to do install a non market app. But you can p.m. me if you like, thats fine.

I'm curious to know how it'll interact with Live Wallpaper backgrounds. I'll bet it looks amazing.

Maybe I completely spaced and missed it, but when I had the Amazing Sense Skin installed there wasn't an option to uninstall it in the stock application manager or in Astro that I could find.

You might want to check your download folder in Astro. It won't be in the stock application manager, I looked there too. But it is on your sd card depending on how you installed it will depend on where its at.

Works flawlessly... And yes, the live wallpaper CAN be viewed from behind the glass. Too bad the opacity can't be adjusted to be a little more transparent.

But by no means am I complaining. I love it.

If this helps, a skin can be deleted by going into menu, personalize, skins. Then hit menu over the one you want to delete and select delete.

Anyone else know of a place that has cool skins? I'd love one made of metal, chrome, wood, diamond, snake/lizard skin or any other natural or textured materials.

If you are worried you can delete the APK through AstroFile manager. It's in your SD card folder by default. Also, you can delete the skin by going into menu, personalize, skins. Then scroll over this skin and hit the menu button and select delete.

I've had real bad battery drain the last day or so. I'm not sure if this skin has anything to do with it.

I've been using this skin and a few others XDA for almost a week now. I haven't noticed any extra battery drain. You can uninstall it and see if there is any change. But if you find it is the skins please let us know. The last thing I need is something draining more of my battery.

I think I figured out the issue. I also installed the silverneedle kernel. When I changed that things stabilized.

You don't have to be rooted or anything. Once you're in the skin menu just hit menu-->delete. I don't think it will let you delete though unless you apply a different skin first.
