Remove the cardo-updater agent from OSX

I have the intercom from Cardo Systems, and it is really good
BUT when I updated the firmware some time agoe, it decided to install some software that  takes port 8080, which is one of those really common ports used by a lot of applications out there. So it really becomes a problem…

Now I figured this out after using lsof

Then I got the PID, so now I could do a ps -ef, to figure out WHICH parent process started it.

Ohh PPID = 1 🙂 That is the launchd-process


OK so now we know it is the launchd process.
So first just find it in launchd

Now in order to unload it we need to find the path to the plist file


As you can see above the plist file is :

path = /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.cardosystems.cardo-updater.plist

Allright, so now we can unload it

And that is it !
