version 1.1

Attached File  File Manager com.adv.fm.pro .jpg   17.85KB   2 downloads

Attached File  File Manager com.adv.fm.pro v.1.1.jpg   110.02KB   1 downloads

Might be malware or similar. Scan wouldnt pick it up

can't uninstall because this package is an active device administrator

 

Just remembered- disable wifi connection

 

Using
Root uninstaller -
3rd apps - File Manager (if its not showing do a search)
Reset
Reboot Android
Settings - Apps - File Manager - Running tab - Stop button

Root uninstaller -
3rd apps - File Manager  
Uninstall
Manage device administrators
Settings - Security - Device admistrator -
look for
"Android Settings" ()
Deactivate
Settings - Apps - File Manager - Uninstall :vampire:

Uninstalled


Cant repeat steps but tried to write as soon as trying to get rid of and uninstall.
 Tried a couple times because it keeps you from uninstalling or deactivating "Android Settings" administrator :ouch:
