Opinion? um yes I suppose so. Experience? again yes. The deal is you need to be able to see the files on the internal flash drive of the phone. the SYSTEM files to be specific. and not all AV programs know what Linux or unix files are and can lead to a broken phone. Clam av does a great job as does the AVG Linux android app. Would I recommend Jailbreaking / rooting a Phone to scan it for Viri? Absolutely NOT. There are healthier ways to spend your time. But You asked could it be done. The answer is yes *Don't try this at home kids.... We're what you call...... Professionals* to steal a line from Jamie and Adam.

I wasn't talking about Linux or UNIX at all -although I have some knowledge about them. You have concentrated your comments on the UNIX/Linux and the calm AV while my machine is Windows (as I said) and my AV is Kasper. So again I declare the issue clearly. Can I use my machine's AV for removing the mobile's malware (if I access into mobile)?
sorry!

Please allow me to clarify.
1) On a rooted or jailbroken phone? The answer is yes.
2) Would I use kasperski from a "Windows" OS? The answer is No (do to differences in the file system architecture)
3) I realize that You were Not talking about Linux and that I was. (More than likely do to communication differences)
4) My post About Linux and not being a Paid advertiser is for lack of better explanation a joke meant to make a few penguins on here laugh.

I am sorry if I was not clear. I would not recommend What you are asking about doing as you can ruin the phone from Windows. You asked if it could be done and the answer is yes but a better question is why would anyone Want to when there are Apps that run from the phones that are better suited?

One more note on this then I am out of here. Windows AV software Does and Will see rooting software used to root an android phone as a Virus even though it is not meant that way. With that said there is a risk of damage using ANY windows based AV to scan a phone regardless of it's OS.

With linux I think that can be the case because android is itself based on linux.

Arita I use Linux for many things including data rescue from Windows and MAC machines, Android phones, iPhones, and many others. I also surf with it if I am looking for info on questionable software, simply because you can run into nasty infected sights websites if your not careful. So Linux Is a logical choice.

On Android, you can use a mobile Anti-Virus like Avast. I don't know what to say about Symbian, i heard that there's an app which scans your phone for viruses.
