    Greetings! I've been all over the Internet for an answer and a download and maybe a dummy proof guide.

    My phone: Elemment Flash (Yeah totally unknown brand from Chile)
    Current OS: Lollipop 5.1
    Power+Vol Down menu is in chinese.
    Reason of the search: Malware got into the OS so not even factory resets help.

    So, I know my phone is not supported by Clockwork and probably not by TWRP or TRWP (Forgot the order of the letters) either, so I need a guide on how to do the task.

    Most important part is finding a ROM, I got no idea what other phone may be like it to say "I can use a ROM for that one" but I don't fear at bricking the phone, it's already a brick with the malware that drains the battery, so is there any place around here to find a ROM based on Lollipop 5.1 or (In the best case) the stock 5.1 ROM?

    And just to save some time, I've ran all the antivirus and antimalware apps I found, they all detect stuff like "SMS Shield is disabled" but not the REAL error and if they do it says "It's a system app and can't be removed" so the problem persist. Disabled unknown sources, checked the device administrators, no luck at all.

    I hope anyone here can help me as I need the phone and getting a 100% battery go down to 1% in 2 minutes due to malware is not fun

    Android roms are incredibly hardware specific, so the chances of finding one for an generic unbranded piece of hardware is virtually zero..

    Unless you get lucky and the company backs it? Or if there is a chilian developer comunity for that device..


    Sorry

    You'll most likely need to get in contact with Elementt for it to be re-flashed with a good original ROM. I presume you are in Chile? The Chinese menu is because it is a Chinese phone, I think Elementt may only be the importer.
