Rooting your Android phone? Google’s rumbled you again


To all of you with older phones...

Your manufacturer no longer sends out patches for your device. You have two options..

* Continue using your device for financial stuff and have the whole thing compromised exposing all that data to the bad guys.

* Have a secure device but lose the ability to do financial stuff with it.

Bloody typical.

it's not just Google that has this idiotic mindset, banks do that too with their mobile banking apps.
