    Welcome to Android Central! Have you identified the virus? Or are you assuming you got hacked because of certain behavior you're seeing on the phone?

    The forums at XDA-Developers.com will probably be a better place to get advice on flashing that phone, but we'll see if anyone here has experience with it.

    If you've identified the virus, have you searched the web for any specific methods to remove it?

    How did you do the factory reset? From the system settings menu or the Recovery Menu?

    Which virus has been identified?

    You might want to try doing a factory reset from the Recovery Menu: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/h...awei-p10-lite/

    Unless you specifically approved an app containing the virus to be installed, the chances of you being infected are slim to none. Android doesn't allow such "drive by" installations. Even if you did somehow get infected, a factory reset would wipe them out. The only time I've heard of malware surviving a factory reset is if it's a dirt cheap clone phone from some no-name company like what you'd get from Wish. In those cases, the malware was inserted as part of the OS by the phone manufacturer, so it survives a factory reset, and even a full re-flash.

    You also seem rather hesitant to give us much information. So understand that our ability to first determine if you are, in fact, infected, and then help you delete it is severely hindered by your lack of info.

    I meant what's the name of the virus? If we know the name of the virus, perhaps we can do some research about that particular one to see what can be done.

    So you're saying your antivirus software told you that you have a RAT, but it couldn't tell you the name of the exploit? Can you show us a screenshot of the antivirus report? http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...d-central.html
