    yeah i just saw that article. nice to have apps tell you what you already know. too bad they can't do anything about it. yet one more reason to root your phone. most of the custom roms out have icq removed.

    Well, to be fair, Trevor Eckhart's paid version does remove the Carrier IQ stuff. I think it only works on select handsets at the moment though.

    I agree with ocnbrze. Nearly all custom ROMs have that stuff stripped out. Even clean stock ROMs do, for the most part. All AOSP based ROMs definitely do.

    I guess it is time root and flash my trusty EVO. I finally got one with GB and everything functioning perfect. My original EVO that I got June of last year did not like GB update. So here's going to the dark side of EVO at least until quad core HTC phone come out.

    If you are still using a stock rom and don't have CIQ removed or if you are on a sense based rom and still want to make sure everything is off. A guy over at xda posted this update.zip that will remove all the CIQ files for you. just download and flash via recovery it will do the rest. It even tells you what its doing as it is deleting them. If interested before you download here is the script:

    Code (Text):
    1. mount("MTD", "system", "/system");
    2.  
    3. ui_print("Removing Carrier IQ...")
    4.  ui_print(" /system/etc/[URL="http://iqprofile.pro/"]iqprofile.pro[/URL]")
    5.  delete("/system/etc/[URL="http://iqprofile.pro/"]iqprofile.pro[/URL]")
    6.  ui_print(" /system/bin/iqd")
    7.  delete("/system/bin/iqd")
    8.  ui_print("  /system/bin/iqfd")
    9.  delete("/system/bin/iqfd")
    10.  ui_print("  /system/lib/libciq_client.so")
    11.  delete("/system/lib/libciq_client.so")
    12.  ui_print(" /system/lib/libciq_htc.so")
    13.  delete("/system/lib/libciq_htc.so")
    14.  ui_print(" /system/lib/libhtciqagent.so")
    15.  delete("/system/lib/libhtciqagent.so")
    16.  ui_print(" /system/app/HtcIQAgent.apk")
    17.  delete("/system/app/HtcIQAgent.apk")
    18.  ui_print(" /system/app/HtcIQAgent.odex")
    19.  delete("/system/app/HtcIQAgent.odex")
    20.  ui_print(" /system/app/IQRD.apk")
    21.  delete("/system/app/IQRD.apk")
    22.  ui_print(" /system/app/IQRD.odex"
    23.  delete("/system/app/IQRD.odex")
    24.  ui print("Carrier Iq is removed.")
    25.  
    26.  unmount("/system")

    If you're rooted. Most people here probably are not so this won't help them.

    If you do have this on your phone, let me direct you to the All things Root forum: EVO 4G - All Things Root - Android Forums

    We look forward to you joining us. And why not install the free wireless tether app and burn some data at Sprint's expense for punishment ;) [unless roaming]
