    Hi team,

    i have a severe issue in handling the mobile. I lost one very important file, so for recovering that file, i rooted my android coolpad note 3 mobile. From then, the mobile gets slow in performance and unwanted apps were found in apps under menu. Tried to enter Safe mode, but mobile doesnt responds. Kindly suggest some way to handle this situation.

    Have you downloaded any suspicious apps from untrusted places such as from a browser? Have you install any apps that don't have an icon image? Have you tried some antiviruses to see if you can remove it? Maybe try this app from Play Store as it can uninstall system and user apps System app remover (ROOT) - Android Apps on Google Play. Illegally downloaded files and apks can cause these.

    If you can't suceed, then i suggest backupping with Titanium Backup and wiping your phone.
