    hi guys,

    The other day, I downloaded an app called "Children Tracker" from the xda website.

    The app was really good, but not exactly what I was looking for. So when I tried to uninstall it, I realised the App has no uninstall option and it looks like it's constantly running in the background asking for "Access" permissions from Superuser - which of course are being denied. :mad:

    How can i manually disable this app and remove it safely?

    Thank you
