Hello.
I just bought a brand new Ulefone S8 Pro from Gearbest.
While connecting to my company's wifi an alarm from their security service (Esentire) picked up a trojan signature hash: Triada.aw
Anyone had this problem before?
How can I root this phone and which ROM should I flash?
Thank you.

Don't know about your phone specifically but you should be able to find a way to disable that app (others too maybe) their are many tutorials on web eg
https://www.xda-developers.com/unins...t-root-access/

Or maybe apps like Package Disabler or Debloater etc will work for you. But if you can find a root method & custom ROM, that may be better (best to use a well known one from a trusted dev here on XDA)

Hello, I have the same problem and I have sent several emails to the company to eliminate the Trojan of the sound recorder ... but they still do not answer.
I'll keep sending more emails, but ... if some developer does twrp for our phone, we can root it and delete it.

Yes, Ulefone just doesn't care. You can try ADB, then uninstall that app. The apk stays on the phone but inactive. That's what I have done.

The problem of the Trojan of my ULEFONE S8 PRO is the sound recorder, and it is installed in the system part, so if I do not root or install TWRP I can not delete it. If any developer can help us and give us some solution ... I sent several emails to ULEFONE and they do not answer. The Trojan was detected by ESET NOD 32 MOBILE.
Thank you

They will not remove it it's what they built into system & it is working exactly as it was designed to work, I believe. It's just that most people would probably class it as a Trojan due to it's behavior.

you should freeze it like @r1kkman.

Yes, with TWRP or CWM we could root it and delete the apk, but with ADB you can uninstall it. Then just the apk package sits in the priv-apps folder, without harming the OS.

Hi, thanks for the help, I uninstalled it by the ADB method, I do not intend to buy more phones of this brand, they do not respond to the emails that I sent them. Very bad company.

Mobile Uncle Tools might fix it, download on your computer and plug in your device and click "Remove China". It deletes all detected Chinese apps.
