[HELP] Got an UMI Cross, found trojans and need help flashing a new rom

Hi all

I just got an UMI Cross recently and from reading about the possibility of trojans on chinese phones, the first thing I did was install a couple of different popular scanners (ESET was one of them)

The 2 scanners I tried both found trojans (UUPAY) and so what I want to do now is flash a new ROM onto the phone, I have found some new roms but now I am unsure of the best way to go about flashing the phone.

I know I need to install CWM or something similar but not sure on the best way to do this or even if its universal (in terms of installing)

So, any help is appreciated

Thanks

Right, it's easy peasy , download this and plonk on your sd card http://www.needrom.com/mobile/ctr-recovery/

download mobile uncle tools and select recovery update, selecting the zip on your sd card, all done!

I downloaded the latest flash rom from there, does that mean I have to use Flash Tools?

Cheers
