Chinese tablet keep random rebooting? Trojan cause?

Oh dear!

I have a trojan embedded in the system files of the elecost q10.1 tab and am suffering random reboots. I cannot remove it and think I have to un-root and manually remove or flash a new rom?

I ran Stubborn Trojan Killer and Malwarebytes and yes I have a trojan, Android/Trojan.Dapper.Agent.Apw in the googlesync system file. The device is un-rooted. I have disabled Googlesync app.

My questions really are,
A) Is this the cause of the above instability?
B) How do I remove it? Is it a case of rooting/renaming file? Apparently someone else removed it and it bricked the device.
Or can I just install a new ROM?

Any pointers, even to best rooting method, would be really appreciated!


I'm trying to put up a comprehensive post but keep getting exceed spam threshold error!
