i Root is marked as a trojan by Symantec

Long story short, it IS a TROJAN.
Q: Was my phone successfully rooted?
Q: Was I 100% satisfied?
A: No, more like negative 100%
I wanted to create symlinks so that whatsapp would now actually store stuff on the external SDcard (which required root).This worked once the phone was rooted but ….
iRoot seems to use KingRoot to do the business. What I had not bargained for, was the extra payload in the deal. It installed several other apps(which I manually removed uninstalled) but the damage had been done.
I then noticed everytime I connected my phone to the internet, LookOut would go crazy, reporting threats in apks that suddenly started being downloaded as security threats adware or riskware.
My phone would slow down and popup windows with sexually suggestive ads ontop of the screen, would show up no matter what I was doing.
I decided to un-root and uninstall kingroot.
I then googled and installed KingRoot individually but the same issues occured.
I unrooted again and uninstalled KingRoot and other neferious software that it seemed to have added, but the situation got to the point where after one week of manually deleting random folders it created, I narrowed it down to an with a name similar to “com.push,alarm” and so far, my phone seems to be close to normal again( having internal memory running low because whatsapp fills it up).
Too much pain for very little effort..
