#3 on my list would be disabling BigBrother features

but I got scared by geekmaster's stern warning about possible bricking.
Does it still apply? Does it apply to KT 5.1.2 ?
yes it is.

RE 3)

Looks extreme. if you are so worried lookup blocking things via editing your /etc/sysconfig/iptables file (there are links on here with lists)

Less radical. can be reversed. does the job in the main.

Also a "gentle" log nerf might not hurt (redirecting the output to > /dev/null say)

one might disable OTA updates

Hope that helps. They are all fairly low risk assuming you do them correctly.

Don't brick your device - it's not required.


The enormous DO NOT DO THIS really should be warning enough.
