    Hi,

    I am getting annoying ads in the notification bar as a little star and an ad in the notification dropdown. How can I find out which app is causing thse ads, or do I have to uninstall one at a time until I find the one serving them? My phone is rooted so I can look inside apks if there's something there that can tell me which one serves ads.

    It's prominently music downloaders or any downloading application.

    Good call. I've also seen reports of some shady live wallpapers pushing ads too.
