4) How can i trust AndroidTamer?
In Simple terms you can’t, We have build it in our premises there are chances that malware of infection could have cropped in. However there are still things you can do if you do not trust us.
- Review our VagrantBuild script you can also build the same system at your home using the script.
- Review our package building process and if you want build your own packages using our build scripts.
- If you still don’t trust the OVA then use your own debian distro and use our package repositories instructions on how to use it on a debian 8 compatible system are listed here
5) Sourceforge adds malware / addware why do you still make it available via sourceforge?
Frankly, sourceforge has added adware’s but so far no instance of adding adware on ova files or non exe systems. Besides this is the reason this time the download location also has my google drive link and i have hosted the checksum on my own website also. so you can verify the checksum in case you want to.
