This is vRoot, isn't it? Has this software been deemed safe now? I was going to use this but read that there were possible security issues that hadn't been addressed yet. There were fears that the CHinese were stealing IMEI numbers or stealing certain info. Is it OK to use now?

I rooted my phone with vroot and now CWM works as it's supposed to. I'm not sure what the original problem was, but it's fixed now!
