1...Does norootfirewall only function in relation to 'apps' or would it have an impact on a RAT that came from an email?

 

2... How does norootfirewall function? Does it prevent a 'trojan' from phoning home, and thus the hacker can not get remote access to your phone even though there is a RAT on your phone?

I wouldn't worry about the RAT function as you would have to manually download the RAT, but I don't believe it does as it just blocks apps sending info to the internet (need an antivirus for that). But i think it would block the trojan from 'phoning home' as it would have to travel through the internet to 'phone home.' Thus making the firewall useful for that, but you would still need an active antivirus to block the infection from happening in the first place.
