    By mistake i have installed some battery booster apps on my android 4.2.2 and got infected, i have uninstalled those apps and
    performed factory reset but to my surprise virus is back. threats: 4
    1 : com.vwydya.snslxcjby (trojan)
    2: com.nb.superuser (trojan)
    3: com.nb.superuser (potentially unwanted app)
    4: com.clrrlixw.hmotzhoh (potentially unwanted app)

    I have disabled auto reset before factory reset but failed.

    my device seems rooted by malware (anti virus says so while cleaning threats)

    Please help

    A factory reset resets the phone by removing anything you've changed - it doesn't change any system apps. If the virus installs as a system app, a reset won't touch it. Reflashing the ROM will get rid of anything, though. (The download mode is like a separate operating system - it shouldn't have gotten infected - and that's how you reflash the ROM.)
