  1. Upon Checking the now refreshed/factory-reset device, it seems that the malware was able to take control of legitimate system apps, instead of mimicking them: com.android.systemui com.google.android.webview Unfortunately I was not able to get the apk's of the infected files before I refreshed the device as the malware was preventing me from doing a lot of things. I notice now that these can now be "disabled" from the apps settings, while before the refresh the "disable" button had been grayed out.

  2. Hi MAM, As stated in my original post and my reply, I have tried Debloater several times and it did not work for me.
