Is there a way to remove some permissions of already compiled apps?

There are so many apps in the market and I don't trust all of them. Is
there a way to remove some permissions of the already compiled apk?
It doesn't matter if I cannot sign it anymore with the original
certificate of the developer.

And is there also a way to add an error-handler into the .apk-file, so
that the errors of the requested permissions will also be supressed?

Greetings, Martin

Sure it does.


If you do not want the application on your device, do not install it.

1. Could not load 'clearsilver-jni': make: *** [out/target/common/docs/offline-sdk-timestamp] Error 45

Hi All

I am buiding Android on RHEL 5.2, x86_64 machine for beagleboard...
I got an error "make: *** [out/target/common/docs/offline-sdk-timestamp]
Error 45"

Details of the buid machine:

java version "1.5.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-b64)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0-b64, mixed mode, sharing)

GCC version:
gcc (GCC) 4.1.2 20071124 (Red Hat 4.1.2-42)

I have pasted here the last few lines:
target Dex: framework
target Jar: framework
Docs droiddoc: out/target/common/docs/offline-sdk
Could not load 'clearsilver-jni'
java.library.path = out/host/linux-x86/lib
make: *** [out/target/common/docs/offline-sdk-timestamp] Error 45

However beagledroid/out/host/linux-x86/lib/ contains the file

Please can you suggest what needs to be done in order to get rid of this
