I also put z4root and Superuser in the ZIP - it's probably flagging z4root ("rageagainstthecage" is another Android apk for root access).
Darn anti-virus programs! Again, apologies that this hack is so cryptic - the problem here is that Cowon really REALLY did a bang-up job to lock this down as best as they could. Normally I would just whip-up a ROM replacement and you'd run that, but their recovery is doing a certificate verification. I also tried fastboot and that didn't work out too well, so far (semi-bricked the device, but recovery was still working so I fixed it).
If I can get fastboot to access a system.img, that might be a way for users to get mods - but it would still need adb.
