    "Begin by downloading the following file:

    DroidXRoot_v2.zip"

    "Download the attached archive and expand it to a folder you can find (eg. c:\DroidXRoot_v2)"

    So i was trying to set up for rooting my phone last night. But when I downloaded the DroidXRoot_v2.zip file available through the link in the stickied thread, my computer detected a virus upon unzipping.

    I tried unzipping to the directory suggested c:\DroidXRoot_v2, Mcaffee popped up saying it detected a trojan in the xploid file, and when the expanded folder showed up there were only 2 files showing. I think it was the su and superuser.apk that were missing.

    Any ideas on how to get my antivirus to ignore exploid until I can push it onto my phone and virus that bad boy up?

    Turn off your anti-virus "On-Access" type scan that looks as every file as it is accessed. Then just turn it back on when you are done rooting

    it says to turn off antiv virus cause it can interfere with things...or is that on the incredible thread...either way, turn it off.
