Trojan in Rom - How to Remove

I have a phablet with a Trojan (Expense Trojan). It is In-Rom. Security 360 or Malwarebytes cannot revove.

I have partitioned/deleted the usb card. I have rebooted to factory resets and it is still there.

360 Security says I may have to Flash the Rom? Root? I am not THAT tech savvy.

Hoe can I get that trojan off my phone/tablet? It gains access to presonal info and loads spam apps.

Is there someone in Los Angeles I can take it to? Advice?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Is this a Chinese tablet that has the built in malware cause a few years ago there were a bunch of them around the spyware is right in the system from the factory and the only way to get rid of it is to have a new rom installed.There are guilds on forums that can lead you through the rom insall but its really easy to brick it if you screw up. I wouldn't use it for banking or anything that has my identity but its fine to use otherwise. In other words disable the gps give it to your 4 year old and get another tablet . Not a Lenovo hahaha.

if you don't know Lenovo was caught doing the same thing with there laptops


Wow. I didn't know that. This is a Chinese phablet, but I have had this a year and this problem just started happening about 3 months ago. I only download from Google Play, so there are infected apps on that store.

I don't want to brick. I want to fix. Guess the only thing to do is replace the rom.


when did you install the program that told you you have the trojan and what program was it


Security 360 or Malwarebytes both told me. I installed a month ago after I started getting spam p o r n apps loaded on my tablet without my consent.


Download Monkey Virus Removal, (search in google).

Sorry but I don`t speak english,

Please traslate it you .

Activa la depuracion Usb en "opciones de desarrollador" (Si no la tienes ve a: ajustes> entra en la ultima opcion (acerca del telefono o tablet), en la opcion de: numero de compilacion dale clic a esa opcion repetidas veces rapido hasta que te diga que ya eres desarrollador. instalas los Drivers de tu tablet en la pc y conctala, ejecuta el MonkeyVR y listo. Suerte.
