    I heard that it is easy to bypass eset security with rooted phones... is there no solutions to secure rooted phones?

    Well, once you have root on a linux system, you can do pretty much everything. That's why it's called rooting :).

    Anything that wants to gain Root has to elevate via SuperUser. So it shouldn't be an issue.

    but someone who has access to your phone can connect it to a computer and delete eset...
    I was just wondering if it was possible to secure a rooted phone... clearly no

    Not true. If USB Debugging is turned off (and you set a password) plugging into a computer will NOT give access to remove apps. USB Debugging is needed for that. I would also disable unknown sources unless you are installing something and disable it again afterwards. If you are still worried about this ( and have a Nexus S) you may want to check out Whisper Core as they off Full Disk Encryption for Android (free). This will prevent this type of issue.
