Which antivirus/security application(s) are we using on our U8815s/U8818s?

Also, are there any useful/fun root apps aside from the usual file explorers and ad blockers.

Running B927.

I've tried several av/security apps and have settled for avast! Mobile Security.

Yep avast here too. It has a good ui and a lot of features, even a good firewall, and the root anti theft feature is just sick :D it puts files in system to stop avast being uninstalled etc.(something like that, cannot remember what it did but it sounded cool)

How is the firewall feature different to a more established root firewall like DroidWall.

I currently use Sophos for Android.
Does Avast! have ads? And does it scan SD card data as well as apps?

It doesn't need it, its just there are a load of apps now on Google play that are malware and people don't want to get a virus. Also, if you loose your phone then most av apps have a missing phone section, which wipes your data
