adware is a software that automatically displays or downloads material( often unwanted) when a user is online.

But our modern day hackers continue to be more and more creative. They embed an adware in a normal app like facebook or whatsapp then after the user has downloaded the app, advertisements will be displayed more often on the user’s screen which is somehow annoying.

Even more interesting is that, after flashing the android the adware won’t be erased, it will be right there with its pop up ads.

It might go further to download items on your phone when data is enabled, draining all your data up! 😬

When downloading apps its imperative you only do so from a legitimate app store like google play store.


  • download your phone’s firmware. It has to be the exact type of firmware your android is running on or else the phone might brick.
  • Create a backup of your data
  • Flash the firmware using SP flash tool .

Better yet you can go to a phone repair shop which they’ll do the job in a span of 10 minutes.

After the virus clean up, install Malwarebytes- anti malware, Its an antivirus that deep scans your phone for any malware or virus and protects the phone from the virus.

The app is found on the play store.
