[TUT]How to remove  MonkeyTest and Time Service Provider for SKK LYNX

Sorry guys, I don’t have enough time to make an update in SKK LYNX due to I’m busy in my work and  family. I made a short tutorial on how to remove this unnecessary and annoying apps.
Are you tired and stress of this unwanted apps “MonkeyTest and Time Service Provider” that always appeared in recent apps? As my opinion this unwanted apps are like a worm or virus in android phone that you can’t delete or uninstall easily. It always came back when the phone was restart even I deleted it in setting/apps. I don’t know there function but I think this app has nothing to do with your device.

I’ve noticed in “system/data/data/” which MonkeyTest file folder uses session id which means has access in your internet or data connection. I think their main purpose to earn their money in ads without knowing it but I don’t have enough evidence and I just warned you. This Agingtest.apk which included in “update v1.6” has binded of this two malware. I tried to delete Agingtest.apk and successfully “TimeService doesn’t appeared anymore even on restart. One more problem is “Monkeytest.apk” which “pgk.apk”  the real path file name (using luckypatcher to determine the file location).
I also deleted it using rootexplorer found in “system/mnt/asec” but still appeared in my recent app. Then I’ve checked again in luckypatcher but the new file name is “”. I tried to delete it and change permissions but always failed to delete. Unfortunately my last sort is to flash again Stockrom V1.2 then I will make an update flash thru custom recovery. Which I will not include AgingTest.apk that binded the two malware. I believe this update can install even on rooted or unrooted Skk Lynx.

StockROM v1.2
Custom Recovery (Philz,CTR,CWM,TWRP)
Note: Before flashing make sure to clean your rom or wipe all via custom recovery
1. Flash Stockrom V1.2 via SPFT. If you already in V1.2 no need to flash it again. Just proceed to the next step.
2. After flashing download updatev1.6 then move to sd card folder. Go to Custom Recovery (philz touch/CTR) then navigate to mount system and mount data. Install updatev1.6.
Then Reboot.

After all the studies, This is a malware called “Ghost Push Malware”. My opinion was right that the attacker want to earn money from Ads. This malware affect 80% of Android users mainly Kitkat (Android 4.4). The  best way to remove this malware is to flash the original Firmware or Stockrom. Then update to Lollipop or new version if available.

    • @kasha
      That's true even playstore doesn't know what apps bind this kind of malware. I hope someday or later can increase their security in terms of accepting app in playstore.

  6. Good my kitkat lenovo has disable function built…+ permission control…+autostart management built in settings security….

    As my experience this two malware interacts in all of your apps and games and draw pop up ads on it plus it has a command that auto download and install an app. This probably happen when you install an app outside google play like what i did….good thing my device have this disable button in app setting…so i dont need to delete it…

  7. Hi guys! I am also suffering like you all with monkey test and time service. It pops ads unnecessarily without notifying you and install apps without your permission. It won't go even after factory reset! So best way is to complete firmware flash. But remember to install a good Antivirus so that u wouldn't suffer like this ever again. And never install apps outside play store. Then enjoy your mobile! 🙂

    • I personally helped almost 35 people out of this. Those who don't have a stable rom for their drvice that tutorial is for them.. Flashing with original rom is the best idea. but this virus can be removed without flashing thats my point.

  8. Having same problem here…. I have like five apps that keeps coming back. Monkey test, time service, easy touch, cool browser, and privacy guard and i didn't install any of these…. PLZ HELP…. Pls i need detailed explaination … Thx

  9. Hi i installed the 360 secure and just disable the monkey test and time service not remove
    But every time I turn on the Wi-Fi ، viruses become active again
    any solutions to remove this viruses for ever
