    Hi i have recently downloaded a bad apk file virus/malware of completely glitchy app

    This app has made it so i can't uninstall it because it is in the system apps file so I need root
    it has been replicating itself and pretending to be com.system.ui and installing other apps such as panel app Swype Kika emoji keyboard and solitaire

    So I decided to root to see if I can delete this malware I have rooted a device before and I got my self cwm
    and everything was working out great after I disabled my antivirus on computer I didn't get any errors saying root lost or anything so I go ahead reboot the system but i have no root just the recovery right now I'm stuck and have nowhere to go supersu won't even work root checker says I don't have root.

    If anyone's wondering i seem to have two malware files called com.swiping.whale.apk
    com.system.cap.hm.aupdater.apk

    These files were scanned using Malware bytes as this was the only app that saw the malware

    I got this after i downloaded this file on this website: **mod removed pirated site link**

    This is what i get for cracking i guess.

    I also tried a whole bunch of mods such as cwm and twrp and others

    I have tried doing a reset won't work files are regenerated after rest

    Also i am new to Andriod forums so if post this in the wrong section sorry.

    Any help much appreciated

    Hello there!
    Although I cannot provide help at this moment, sorry, I did remove the link you posted as we'd rather not promote sites that have paid apps for free, k? ;)

    In order to remove malware completely,I would re flash the stock firmware and then re root.

    AT&T doesn't like to release its firmware so not going to be able to find stock NJ2 that you can flash with Odin.
    I have used these files on several i747 to update or to fix bootloops.

    You can get the latest TWRP tar from here and flash with Odin but Philz touch works fine also

    I would get both downloads under NJ2. The system image and the bootloader modem zip.
    Good idea to get the stock recovery zip too.

    If after flashing the system then bootloader zip, phone gets stuck on the AT&T logo for more than 10 min, pull and replace the battery and boot back into Philz and flash the stock recovery zip. Do the battery pull/ replace again and boot into stock recovery and choose Factory Reset.
    You can flash custom recovery again later if you want.
    Factory Reset in stock recovery is a miracle worker sometimes.

    Flash SuperSU update zip then open app and let SuperSU update its binary and you are Rooted. You then can delete the bad apps

    You can get newer 2.65 from here
    https://download.chainfire.eu/921/SuperSU

    When you flashed the NJ2 ROM, did you preform Advanced Wipe first? Everything but SD card?
    The ROM was a complete firmware and should have been a clean install removing the corrupt apps with the old system.

    Yes, clean flash is wiping System, Cache and Dalvik cache before flashing new rom
