  1. Hello,YP, please I intend to downgrade my HT7 phone dat runs on 5.1. I hv actually being having issues with the fine, with apps installing by themselves without my permission. Even when I turn of Installation Unknown Source, it turns it on by itself, then my fine keep blinking and fluctuating. I have tried almost every none solution such as installing addons detector, factory resetting of my fine, changing my google password etc.but all to no avail. So felt wiping the android OS and reinstalling it will do the magic. Pls Sir what do you think?.

    • Hello Anonymous, I think your HT7 has been infected with MonkeyTest time virus. Re-install the OS and it will fix it well for you. If you can't do it, get someone who can help you reinstall the OS otherwise known as Flashing back the stock rom.
