  1. hey, try "noroot firewall" and block "shell.apk" then you can allow all other apps that you use online, I no longer have a problem from enginee and whone
  2. auto installation of enginee really cant be remove but can be block via firewall, the app shell.apk even if removed still shows up on the "access list" on the firewall. If given permission, enginee automatically installs but if blocked no auto installation occurs
  3. @Crytix i cant edit post (i already mentioned this)
  4. i was finally able to send a report, i tried disabling the shell.apk, enginee somehow stopped but a new app is auto installed something with "whone" in its name, if i remember correctly it was found adware by malwarebytes i tried a factory reset, and it gave me an option to restore backup, how do i delete the recovery/backup file?
  5. @mbam_mtbr i cant find shell.apk on the app list package, it doesnt show system apps also i kept on monitoring my data and there is also another app that would spike 1.5mb then followed by an "enginee" notification being installed, the weird part is that this particular app doesnt show on my system apps, its called "OS Services"
  6. i cant send a report, theres an error, i forgot the exact words but it means that i dont have an email app to send report also i think i found it, the source, i was monitoring my data consumption when suddenly a pre-installed app called "shell.apk" downloaded 1.5mb then a message pop up from malware about enginee as a threat i dont think its coincidence. but i still need confirmation
  7. im not sure how to share the result but heres link https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/7977270656abfe7ca99095817dcb35c432a7a0c7249b309054bc97b3acbffa93/detection
  8. damn the enginee is back again, there has to be something thats triggering this
  9. yeah but it got my attention and started pulling some strings and i ended up in a website that make military weapons in america, its the same one sending the url for auto installation, i think their spying on us
  10. based on virustotal graph, i found a link which if you try to load it on desktop it auto download the same apk file and that is the enginee app if i could blacklist this link on my phone it should stop the auto installing right?
  11. @florinch i just tried, it didnt return... yet @MAM i checked it on virustotal, 14/62 engines found this as infected files, i rescanned it and 22/61 Also i dont know how to edit my post to remove the download link
  12. Hi, i need help and i hope that someone here can help me, im currently infested by a virus or malware that keeps on coming back, it never stop it always install itself and it has the capability to 1. read phone status and identity 2. location 3. modify/delete contents 4. find accounts on device 5. download files WITHOUT notification 6.retrieve running app and run at startup 7. draw over other apps 8. read sync settings it looks very dangerous it could steal info from my phone, based on my research those who are infected by this app also receives msgs with links and it seems that the phone itself created that message and sends to itself right now i have no idea on how to remove this problem, also rooting is impossible currently because my phone is not supported on any rooting services and i yes i tried everything, emailed them if they supports rooting my phone and they all say no. i was able to grab a copy of the enginee app in apk format maybe someone is interested on simulating it on an emulator (im doing it right now actually)
  13. I once have issue with infoprovide app auto installing issue but is now solved, but the other app called "enginee" still not fixed, it keeps installing by itself and i have no idea which app is causing this problem i also found out that enginee is categorized as guerrilla.ak
  14. alternative removal FWUpdateProvider: Install the USB drivers for your device (Google has a list of some universal USB drivers here) Download the ADB binary for your particular OS (Windows, Mac, Linux) Extract the zip file into a folder that you can quickly access. On your phone, go to Settings and tap on About Phone. Find the Build Number and tap on it 7 times to enable Developer Options. Now enter Developer Options and find USB Debugging. Enable it. Plug your phone into the computer and change it from “charge only” mode to “file transfer (MTP)” mode. On your computer, browse to the directory where you extracted the ADB binary. Launch a Command Prompt in your ADB folder. For Windows users, this can be done by holding Shift and Right-clicking then selecting the “open command prompt here” option. Once you’re in the command prompt/terminal, enter the following command: adb devices You will see that the system is starting the ADB daemon. If this is your first time running ADB, you will see a prompt on your phone asking you to authorize a connection with the computer. Grant it. Now if you re-run the adb devices command, the terminal will print the serial number of your device. If so, then you’re ready to move on. Enter the following command: adb shell Execute the “pm list packages | grep '<OEM/Carrier/App Name>'” command (without quotes) to find package names. Execute the command like so: “pm uninstall -k --user 0 <name of package>” command (without quotes) to uninstall a specific system application. example: pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.fwupgrade.sysoper
  15. debloater didnt work with my phone, but i was able to remove it by a different approach, through shell commands, i uninstalled it, but when i check it on debloater it says only disabled so i guess its fine, also one of the app that keeps installing is gone the "infoprovided" app no longer install but now the "enginee" app is more persistent than before. every couple of minutes that im online that app install itself. I also notice that my default browser keeps adding 2 app on my homescreen the "loopscoop" and "2048" with Chinese Characters, even if i delete data and cache of the browser it keeps coming back im not even using it, I'm thinking of disabling my default browser and switch to my usual browser. Maybe malwarebytes can help
  16. lately two app keep returning and are found to be a virus, i always uninstall them, and i think the culprit is the fwupgradeprovider, it cant be disable, today my phones' UI system tuner suddenly changed its arrangement, when i check the UI setting, its still the same as before
  17. its becoming a problem, it must be taken care of as soon as possible to prevent leak of information
  18. its installed the enginee app again, ang requesting for location, storage, it could hack my device maybe my accounts
  19. if i were me, i will first install the app on an emulator such as memu or bluestacks, scan it there, test it for a few minutes, if everything is good, transfer it to my phone the emulator acts as a sandbox, its like testing something before actually installing directly to your phone
  20. This FWupgrade thing is dangerous, i know that because 2 unknown apps were installed automatically the first app is called infoprovider (or infoprovided) it opens a small bubble head with a picture of a brown dog (pretty weird huh), the 2nd app is called enginee i dont know what it does and i dont wanna know and removed it immediately, after a couple of days the infoprovider app installed again and removed it immediately, this problem should be taken care as soon as possible.
  21. didn't work, i used debloated just now, when i scanned again it wasnt disabled
  22. ok what is adups because i dont have one installed only FWupgrade which is found to be a malware
  23. i got the same problem, but i cant disable or force stop it both are greyed out, after a couple of days, 2 unknown apps were installed automatically when i went online, the apps are "infoprovided" and "enginee" both are found virus
