comment Deleted some apk files - but the apps are still there after reboot
Ah, good! These may have been auto-updated versions of the original apps installed in /system/app. -- Thanks for accepting!

comment Internet filterer?
I see. I'm sorry for misleading you -- seems like I haven't remembered what it does all that well. :(

comment Internet filterer?
I honestly do not remember. (Anyway, showing an URL does not make much sense unless the app in question is making an HTTP request and not any other kind of IP traffic, no?)

comment Disable all mobile data-consuming apps
Are you sure this is enforced on the system level? I thought this option was more of a guideline that certain apps use to decide whether or not to enable push services.

comment Can Applications With Root Access Modify Their Own Permissions?
Each app's permissions are store authoritatively in its (compiled and signed) AndroidManifest.xml inside its APK file. Current Android implementations cache the permissions in /data/system/packages.xml, but as that is an implementation detail, you'll find little documentation on it. Anyway, changing this file as root (and quickly rebooting before the package manager overwrites it again) makes permission changes persistent across reboots.
