Maybe it's a good sign, maybe the update will be posted soon.

Btw, official/leaked/whatever ROM 2016/Sep/12 as available from
http://www.needrom.com/download/ulefone-metal/

does no more contain Search Service and Opera Mobile Store, and scanning for malwares did not find ranything.

Don't worry, flasing via SPFlashtools works perfect. I"ve flashed TWRP, I've flashed that ROM and again TWRP. Using Windows 7, but there are drivers from XP till 10

As Ruslan wrote on first page of this thread, ROM 2016/09/12 is his work, it's official Ulefone ROM (2016/07/28), he just deleted malware from it.
Hopefully malware will be deleted in official ROM soon, or CM/AOSP appears.

The ROM still can be found under Download, The latest ROM, but unfortunately it's still the official ROM containing malware from Ulefone.
Download page is pretty bad anyway, no drivers for Win 10 (broken links), OMG:-o

Well, it is a nice phone, but ... the malware downloaded several apps to my phone, did activate the third party app install again and again, even resulting in getting me an unwanted subscription service (and the monthly fee for it).
The ROM from Ruslan cannot be downloaded from Needrom, and resetting the phone to factory setting does nil.
I tried to flash it with an old ROM from Ulefone, but only got some error message, which I had not really understood as I am not an IT experts (please see screenshot). So a official, clean and working ROM would be great plus an step-to-step instruction for dummies how to install it. Please.

The way Ulefone ignores all of this is just incredible.

@mdr: You can also root your device to permanently uninstall the malware. It's really not a complicated procedure if you follow Rusian's guide. It took me about 15 minutes to do so.

Yes, their ignorance reminds me Xiaomi:-(
@mdr : Not a word from Ulefone, I hope they'll provede malware-free ROM soon, we have to wait, or wait for custom ROMs.
I've downloaded the ROM from needrom without problems flashing according to description on needrom works (I've selected Firmware upgrade in SPFlashTool, not sure, maybe it also works with Download only?). You need to install "flashing" drivers in advance, for Win 7 and Win 8 it can be found on Ulefone download site, Win 10 drivers was removed from their site (there was just link and the page was deleted, OMG), but I can provide it, if needed (found them on internet, don't know where anymore).
As timar wrote, rooting and removing malware is also easy.
