I posted earlier in this thread but I'm back with more questions for other fellow users. (Digiland 1010Q user here)
So following the craptacular forced update in January, I was left with no root and some forced apps like Clean Master and Accuweather.
Following advices from this thread, I then regained root with vroot, which installed SuperUser (the app that looks like a blue shield with a lion on it). It came with another app that seemed kinda bloaty, so I uninstalled that one through normal means, no issue.
In March, I noticed that a wireless update came out, but I quickly disabled the "wireless update" app and disabled it from auto start.
Question #1: Does anyone know what this March firmware update did besides remove Clean Master? Did it remove Accuweather? Did it improve/add/remove any functionality on the tablet? I'd be very interested to know from people who have installed it, especially rooted users to see if they lost root again or not.
Lastly, ever since february or so, I have on occasions seen some games auto install on my tablet, without my consent or knowledge. They are easy to uninstall, but I'd obviously like to clear this up. After downloading several anti virus/malware detectors, several saw nothing, but the few that did always came back with 2 possible culprits: Accuweather and the vroot SuperUser. Before touching my vroot superuser, and since I suspect it might indeed be that bloatware Accuweather that DIgiland forced on us back in January, I'd like to know if anyone on this thread has actually UNINSTALLED accuweather from the january update? I've read from users earlier in the thread that they had frozen it from starting, but I'd rather see it gone completely if it's safe.
Question #2: So, has anyone uninstalled Accuweather completely? If so, what tool did you use for it? I really like ES File Explorer so I was looking to do it through there.
Finally, my question 3:
Question #3: If I end up successfully uninstalling Accuweather completely and unknown games keep appearing on my tablet, it would pretty much only leave vroot SuperUser as the culprit. If I was to uninstall that and replace it with a superuser app from the google store, can those app run completely silent and only on demand? I had KingUser before the january update and that superuser app always loaded itself in memory when I booted the tablet (as seen in running apps), but I kinda like that the vroot superuser doesn't seem to run at startup (at least I can't see it in running apps until I use a function that requests root and loads it in memory). I play some games that refuse to boot if a superuser app is detected and I'd like to have one that stays "silent" unless the user requests it.
Thanks for anyone who could help me clear up those 3 questions.
