And in your village, viruses don't do that, right?

Anybody with rudimentary computer knowledge knows viruses are a single type of malware

Yes

It's seven times easier to infect a rooted Android than an unrooted Android.

You'd be shocked at how silent some viruses are, some are even undetectable by some antiviruses.


FYI, your experience doesn't even apply to 30% of Android users, not according to the link I provided earlier.

I don't know what to classify your post as - ignorant or willfully ignorant.

Educate yourself!

[b]in a wierd way, you are the ignorant one here.. all your post though... you realize that avast would see any. bat file as a virus?? meanwhile a bat code extensioncan be a programming language that helps, but because avast doesn't know the extension it sees it as a virus? .. same applies to. tar extension, .sys, .bin.. look closely under my pics, thats the extensions i enabled the avast to detect as virus, i can decide to remove the .ink extension and avast would stop seeing any. ink extension as a virus, same applies to all other extensions... root acess has nothing to do with avast or virus or what not.. root allows a user to alter or modify the Android system partition to any thing the user so desires.... with root you can easily detect any bad system file and edit it.. but without root the avast you so highly praise is only limited to USER DATA PARTITION, and can't save one from SYSTEM DATA PARTITION if a bad file or corrupt file gets in their.. avast doesn't cure virus or get rid of virus, avast restricts some certain extensions from getting into your phone if it doesn't recognize it or sees it as a malware, it doesn't make the file a virus.. it means avast devs simply don't want the user taking risks... STOP DOING THIS.. STOP EMBARASSING Nathan2222[/b]

Enough e-altercation going on already.
The only disadvantage i could deduce as an HHP engineer is that OS alteration voids your warranty when i'm to work on it.

What am about to share many of you dont know. This is the real disadvantage of rooting your andriod phone.

From my experience of using android phones the only disadvantage of rooting i have observed is that, Rooting removes the protection and security of an andriod phone. When i say ''protection'' i dont mean, protection against virus, becus andriod phone dont contact virus.

When i say it removes the protection, i mean, yr privacy protection.
Last week i was using a friend's rooted android phone, so i Decided to do some experiment and i went into the root section of the phone. I did some things and like magic i got the password of his yahoo mail, gmail and Facebook account. Since then i knew android phones has no security.

If i hold any rooted phone, i can get the password of the person's Email, the person's conversation ( like 2go, facebook conversation) and even the person password to all social network.

If you use some banking apps like diamond bank app on a rooted phone, its a big risk to you, becus a tech expert can easliy get yr bank infomation and and stuffs like dat.

So rooting yr phone depends on what you use the phone for, if u jst wanna customise yr phone, play hd games, delete unwanted sys apps and minimise yr data usage, u can root yr phone but BeWare Of Hackers....


how did u get to the root folder? or its directory

1.each apps ask for permission to save password and encrypts it inside the app… there is no collection point for password
2. Bank apps neither ask to save password and if you watch the keyboards change to avoid keylogging
3.android os does not save passwords of apps
except phonelock
4.except you have a malware stealing passwords, keylogging or presents fake log in face I DON'T BELIEVE IT.

have u heard of what they call database? Each andriod app has it database in the root folder and can be accessed if u know yr way. Some apps database like whatsapp re encypted in the root folder, but can still be decrypted using some methods. So believe it or not.

you mean you can decrypt all those apps ..STORIES not even american NSA can decrypt them…. IMPOSSIBLE
You can present a fake app front, use screen capture apps or keyloggers but to decrypt 250 or 500 encryption codes e.g blowfish… ..Impossible
