Technical Details

DroidRooter.G is a local root exploit that is used to gain system privileges on a device running on Android version 2.2 (Froyo) or version 2.3 (Gingerbread). The binary and source code are publicly available, but there is yet any report or finding of this exploit being utilized by Android malware.

While hack-tools and similar apps may be legitimately used by the device's authorized user, they are classified by security programs as riskware because in the hands of unauthorized users, they can also be used to cause damage to the user's data or the device.

If you are confident that you are aware of the risks involved in using the program and consent to its use, you may choose to keep it installed on your device.
