There are several apps on Google’s Play store, which basically allow to remove permissions from apps. They do this by modifying the binary
AndroidManifest.xmlinside the APK file, repacking and then reinstalling the modified APK.
Currently, I am looking at Android exploits to gain root access. Most of the instructions out there, are about downloading some closed source binaries. Since this is a very sensitive topic, I like to see the source code and at least be able to build the programs myself.
I always wanted to have a multi-user Android on my tablet. But I have Android 3.2 and the only update available is Android 4.0, which additionally has some reports about performance and stability issues.
