    I was reading up on the D2G root methods and have a problem:

    Every time I try to download the z4 root apk file, my anti-virus software (Kaspersky) tells me this file is infected, even on the xda site as well as the link(s) to it on this forum.

    It says:

    "Threat detected:
    object is infected by Exploit.Linux.Lotoor.g"

    I also get another pop-up that looks like the file is appended with something called "rageagainsthecage" and describes it as a Trojan.

    Any ideas what is going on here? Seems like the only way for me to DL this file is to turn off anti-virus, and that is not happening. Anyone got a link to a clean download?

    Also, after reading about 16 pages of the how to root your D2G, I am left wondering what the point is if you don't get improved battery life?

    Tx.

    Kaspersky...really? Why? Has Android ever been taken down once? It is bloat IMO.

    Inflected? nope, z4root is a great way to remove bloat. I used a droid antivirus program and it told me wireless tether was a threat...that was a year ago, lol.

    A/V is on the desktop

    Kaspersky is on the desktop, not the mobile - all I wanted to do was DL to my Windows7 Laptop and then copy that and bootstrap to my sd card. I can DL bootstrap, but not z4.

    Got ya, it isn't lookout. Yeah, I think you are good. My CA always says RSD is crap, but I know it isn't. That is the deal, AV SW tries real hard, but sometimes it comes down to user discretion.

    Lowered the bar

    Okay, so I browsed around and saw that other Kaspersky users had the same problem. I lowered the bar to let the file in, and then re-enabled. The Mod is running as we speak. Fingers crossed.

    Why did they take this off the Market? Because it's a mod?
