Leaked Sprint Galaxy S II ROMs Void Of CarrierIQ.

  • December 13, 2011 2:57 pm

Nobody’s favorite mobile tracking software, CarrierIQ, is getting the shaft in Sprint’s upcoming Galaxy S II update, according to this ongoing thread (more recent leak from today here) over at XDA which highlight two recently leaked ROMs: EK02 and EL13 — the latter removes Carrier IQ.

If Sprint/Samsung are going on the offensive by removing CarrierIQ on the Galaxy S II due to unanimous consumer (and governmental) condemnation, very soon we could see a carrier (or even a mobile landscape) void of the invasive software.
