    Default CarrierIQ debacle

    If you havent heard just Google it. Its a big story.
    If you wana run the tool to see if your X has this stuff on it,(according to the tool) mine did but its been "removed". Yet after the required reboot I ran the tool again to remove it and it removed it again so not sure whats what but it gives us something to do. You must be rooted.

    Yea, I'm still rockin' a Gnex. The signal strength/quality sucks, but hey, it's not two years old yet.

    Please consider updating this thread: http://forums.androidcentral.com/and...-status-2.html with whatever information is found.

    I'd really like to know what tool found this in the OP and how it was confirmed.

    It must be the app tool Im using then because it says Carrier IQ successfully removed along with HTC loggers every time I run it.
