If your phone is rooted and the game detects it, then it will ask for root access in an attempt to prevent you from cheating, blocking ads, etc. If you deny root access, the game will most likely exit or crash. You have two choices if you really want to play the game: Play on a non-rooted device. Install Xposed Framework with RootCloak module on your ...

It shouldn't be... There is no viable reason I can think of for a game to request or need root permissions. If this game is from an official channel like Play Store, Amazon App Store, or F-Droid, do not grant the permission and remove it immediately. This should also be reported to the appropriate app market and given a comment or review warning other users ...

I had this headache for long time. But, then I discovered this app by Adblock. This works on rooted android phone. And blocks all the ads displayed by various applications on your phone.

As the comment below nicely requested, this has happened to me on an old phone before. Apps that I never installed would appear on my homescreen, etc. It was because of an app ...

That's most likely a MIUI app called Lazy Swipe: Lazy Swipe (source: Miui; click image for larger variant) This app might have come pre-installed with your device. I wouldn't consider it malware until proven otherwise. The "random search presets" might even be possible to deactivate. And if you don't like it at all, you can simply deactivate it in ...

The easiest way to fix it (without even voiding warranty because we will be flashing an official firmware image) consists of a few small and easy steps: (Assuming you have already installed Samsung's USB drivers) I take no responsibility for damaging, bricking or otherwise damaging you or your phone, but that's how I flashed since a few years now and it ...

I'm not sure why you are certain that malware has written to /system. As pointed out by @GiantTree, no 3rd party should have been able to write to it. This partition is protected at all costs by your system, which is also what makes rooting so difficult on your device. In practice however, there is a rather high chance an exploit was found and not made ...
