Avast was installed on my Nexus 5 right after purchase.  Avast would not allow me to Automatically enable GPS.  So I rooted my phone via CF, but I still get the same result  ???.  I'll use Prey until this is corrected. 
I've used Avast products for years on many machines and have always been happy.  I'm sure this is just a glitch that will be resolved soon.

The same issue is with Nexus 7 3g and Android 4.4.

Same issue on my Nexus 7 V2 2013, anti-theft working brilliantly until upgrade to kitkat 4.4 now tells me phone not rooted, (which it is again)
I have tried uninstalling and re-installing as advised on another thread but still saying "not rooted"

the new build has been tested and is now beeing further improved.
it's better to wait a little longer than to release bugs.

have a good one,

Still waiting for the repair for installing anti theft on Android 4.4 Kit Kat.  Any word on when this fix will be released??  It's supposedly been in the works for a while.

I'm anxious as well.  I've got two new Nexus 5 running 4.4 (rooted, Cataclysm) and I've upgraded my Nexus 4's to the same.

Hello,

sorry for the delay. The update will be deployed on monday.
It always takes some time to finish an update due to quality managmentent processes.
The update has to be tested thoroughly.

Have a nice weekend and don't lose your phone :-)

When there's a update version, do we have to uninstall/reinstall or will updating it allow root?

Any updates on this? I'm still not able to use this on a rooted Nexus 4.

Dear customer,

Our update fixing the issues with android 4.4 will become available today.

Due to changes in the android system, you'll need to un- and reinstall (instead of updating).

Thank you for your patience,

Werner

Looks like new update is available in Google play store.

Anyway, during installation it says that in order to get notifications (e.g. sim change etc) one needs to install also Avast mobile security?

Is that correct? No more Anti theft stand alone without the whole package of mobile security?
