    Rooted Tablet

    Just installed AVG on an El Cheapo tablet. DXtreme. It's capable enough for my limited use. But AVG gave me a warning that it isrunning in high privilege mode (rooted). Is this an issue for me if I have no plans to mess with any of the software?

    For a moment I thought you wanted some Viagra, then I saw it was "rooted"

    i wouldn't think so, AVG is fairly well used. I use aVast and give it root permissions on my android xoom2

    Given some of your recent postings you'd likely know where to pick up the "El Cheapo" version of that as well.

    Found the following answer from Android on a forum:

    That is absolutely normal since you do have root permissions.
    Luckily, any app that tries to access that will first need to be granted those permissions with Superuser.

    So, if you do not know what an app is but it asks for Superuser permissions you can deny. If you do know what it is, feel free to allow it.

    These settings can be switched if you ever hit allow or deny by accident.

    And for that reason, it is okay to ignore that threat.

    Thanks TD. AVG faq was singularly unhelpful.

    When I saw the thread I thought your tablet was broken.

    Rooting a droid isn't as involved or in any way as frowned upon as jail breaking an IOS device.
