Skulls.P is a combination of several previous Skulls variants. Skulls.P contains component files from Skulls.D and Skulls.N among other variants. Skulls.P also drops SymbOS/Mabir.A and several Cabir variants on the phone and component files from Fontal and Doomboot trojans. The Doomboot component dropped by Skulls.P prevents phone from rebooting, so if your phone is infected with Skulls.P, it is critical not to reboot the phone. As Skulls.P breaks the application manager and application installer, the only currently working method of disinfection works with phones that have removable memory card.
CAUTION! This method will work only with phones where memory card can be inserted without removing the phone battery.
CAUTION! this method will remove all data on the device including calendar and phone numbers
Sometimes Doomboot.F installs the corrupted file on memory card, so try to boot without the card. If the phone still does not boot use the instructions below.
