[Q] I want to remove GPS from phone, is this possible?

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Is it possible to completely remove the GPS (not just the icon) or is this impossible without bricking? I assume that any apps which require fine or coarse location permissions from the GPS will then not be able to function? Do you think I can disable the GPS by deleting this file? system/etc/permissions/android.hardware.location.gps.xml Will it remove all allow-gps permission granted to all users? (HowTos)
