Default where can I get the z4root.1.3.0.apk that is clean

I went to MediaFire and downloaded it to my ascend and my antivirus said it was infected. So where can I get a clean version.

Your antivirus will always say it is infected because of its nature (it is in fact a virus of sorts but like cowpox it is a virus that has been twisted to benifit us as cowpox is the smallpox vaccine) and some agressive means it uses.

If you are worried about your source use my guide I swear on my life it is 100% clean.

Btw you can download it directly to your phone. You don't need the PC to get it.

You can download it anywhere, but disable the antivirus. It gives false virus warning, or some antivirus program delete data from apk file (which cripples the app). For explanation search for "virus" on this page (or many more over the whole internet) :

I will give you a link to download an 100% clean z4root; either download it from your phone, or put it on your desktop (computer) and copy it to your SD Card.

This is the most recent one, 1.3.0:
z4root.1.3.0.apk - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download

I have a clean copy uploaded on my server as well if needed.

A antivirus on these phones isnt really necessary as its based on linux, but it doesnt hurt to have one either I ran AVG's on the stock 2.1 when I was on it.

I'll beat the dead horse here: z4root will show up as a virus because it is a rootkit. It's supposed to alter settings to give you full admin access, therefore most AV programs will detect it as a rootkit, although Lookout does not do so.

Thats probably the safest way. I got my Z4Root when it was still in the market also. Then it got removed, then all those malware apps were discovered, oh the times have changes in a short six months.

Yea I got several apk files backed up on my laptop lol.

I'll admit I use 'pirated copy's of some apps if I just need to use em once. But if I continue to use em I pay for em. Just bought two this week

I think all apps need a trial version just ppl can see if they will actually use it.

I also make donations to free app dev's if I continually use their apps like CWM. If we dont support the dev's that are kind enough to put their time n effort into apps they'll either stop doing it or charge more for em.

I just rooted my phone yesterday using the file from Tokenpoke's guide and it's clean. However, I had a minor issue when i downloaded it from my phone. It gave me a "parsing error" message. So I had to download it from my computer and put it on my phone and it worked perfectly.

If I want to donate to the people who made CWM how do i do that? Do I donate to the developers of ROM Manager?
