    I made an attempt to remove CIQ from my rooted mostly stock Precedent by directly removing thefiles myself, this resulted in a phone that would not boot. I recovered with Odin, so I am back to square one. For now I will just hopefully block CIQ with DroidWall.

    Has anyone gotten rid of CIQ without having to pay for an app or having to install a third party ROM?

    Why not just use Trevor Eckhart’s Logging Test App from XDA-Developers. Pay him the $1 and be done with it. After all he is the one that brought it to light.

    Mr. Eckhart is a good guy for finding the info on CIQ, but I should not have to pay anyone to remove something that could be potentially violating my fourth amendment and subsequent privacy rights.

    Worst case, I use my second amendment rights to protect my fourth amendment rights; shoot the phone; send a carrier iq a bill for a spent casing, the phone and loss of service.

    Yeah, I checked the Pandabomb CM7 and it came up clear. I was pretty happy about that.
