Auto Carrier IQ Process Killer will automatically detect and kill the IQMSD process that runs as part of the overall Carrier IQ logging system. The process will not restart until the next time you reboot your phone (at which point this app will kill it again). Note that you must have super user installed for this application to terminate the Carrier IQ process as it requires the super user privileges to kill the IQMSD process. Therefore, for unrooted phones, install the free version of this application called "Carrier IQ Process Killer", also available on the Android Market.

Note this program does NOT kill all of Carrier IQ. It only stops the IQMSD process that is part of the overall CIQ package. Therefore, other CIQ detectors will still detect the presence of Carrier IQ. Note that it is impossible to completely remove all components of Carrier IQ unless you install a custom ROM and custom Kernel that is free of Carrier IQ.

Prior to purchasing this application, please verify that your phone has IQMSD running, and that your phone is rooted properly. This test can be done by installing and running the free app, "Carrier IQ Process Killer".

Recently changed in this version

Version 1.2 addresses issues with slower phones not granting the application super-user rights quickly enough.

The next release will provide for an option to prevent the notification from showing up in the status bar when the app successfully kills IQMSD.
