Answered No-name clone phone issues


Novice Member
I have been given a clone of a Samsung phone. As far as I can make out it is an ALPS M10 made in China with Android 5.1 However this Android seems to be a ripoff as underneath some of the text is in Chinese! It is also infected with malware that AVG can't remove. IMG_20190303_123823027.jpg

I have rooted and used recovery tools to install new Android roms on other phones but as this is a no-name I don't know which TWERP to get for example.

Is there a way to totally zap the existing ROM and write a new Android OS to it rather than going the normal route?

NP. There are several Chinese users on those forums that are well versed in the types of devices you have picked up.
