Voodoo Carrier IQ detector

Voodoo Carrier IQ detector


This app's goal is to let you find out as easily as possible if your Android device hosts CarrierIQ rootkit or not.

Results cannot be blindly trusted but the accuracy is decent already.
* Work is in progress: We are actually writing an optional public reporting feature, that will allow to build an wide database describing Carrier IQ installations.

How to remove Carrier IQ? Call your carrier, convince them to change of policy.

Important note:
Some anti - Carrier IQ fixes are not detected yet and can generate false positives (now improved a lot)

This is an open source app, please contact me for collaboration & contributions, we will work together.
You're welcome reviewing its source code. It's a security app after all.

Emailed the dev; they actually told me they no longer work on it. Makes sense, though. It WAS last updated back in 2011 December. A word of advice: DON'T install this app; it's a waste of your time; There are alternatives on the Play Store.
