    Is there any possible way to restrict and/or change permissions granted to applications? Slacker radio simply has no business accessing sensitive log info...

    Thank you. I need to spend some time learning a scripting language so I can stay out if the market for important stuff like that.

    Permissions denied app. Works great but not on system apps like slacker. Well I don't advise it. Freeze slacker.

    I downloaded LBE and it works like a charm. I can now select specific permissions to allow for individual apps. So far so good, I have restricted access to my contacts on several apps and they still run fine. I can also change allowed permissions for system apps simply by "un-trusting" them and moving them to the "monitored" queue.
