    hi All, I have been using the X7 and the X8 for almost a year now and all is sudden I am getting pop up advertisements every few minutes. This even happens on the interface and the explorer window as well when doing file management.

    Is there any solution to this as feeling extremely frustrated.

    The device is Neo X8 Plus running Android version 4.4.2

    Appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

    I had this issue once and had to reflash the firmware!

    Is there a procedure to do this and is it difficult to do. Do we loose all our apps and data ?

    Yes, you will lose all user apps and data.
    But it will remove the ads!
    Do you know if you installed anything dodgy that could have lead to these ads?
    Like I said, I had this issue once and tried all sorts to get rid of them but reflashing in the end was the best solution.

    Is it definately the X8 Plus that you have? (X8-H Plus is different firmware)
    If yes, then below is the firmware file and guide...
