My LG Stylo 4 Has Been Hijacked by Remote Administrator and OS as Well as Kernel Have Been Modified


Okay....Let me see if I can adaquately explain what has been happening to me....About 6 months ago I started to notice my phones acting weirdly....My first tip-off was Google help saying I was using a modified OS and that I should contact the Manufacturer....At this point I knew nothing about any of this computing/coding business....So I commenced to doing research....Along the way the name G-Suite kept popping up....So I determined at this point I had an administrator over my phone due to the fact that important settings would be grayed out so I couldnt use them....It got so bad that I couldnt work(I use my phone for work....DoorDash,Postmates,etc....)They would cut off my data,screw with my maps,so on and so forth....I would usually figure out a workaround to these obstacles....What I havent been able to figure out though is how they are taking my apps and modifying them so one minute they are working and the next they arent....I also noticed that the headers are color coded....I havent figured that one out yet although I suspect it has to do with Parallel Spaces....Oh they also apparently have an exact clone of my phone so any password changes I make they also know....I have tracked this to the Legacy Project as well but have no idea what to do with this info....I have found a good buddy in Termux but they will go in there and remove files so it doesnt work anymore....Just the other day I received an extortion e-mail from someone purporting to be the perpetrator....lol
If anyone could help me break this Admins hold over my phone and possibly even track who it is....I would be so grateful....

The only way to be certain that you have a virus-free phone is to replace your current one.

Can you do a factory reset? Should be in System->Advanced, at least that is were it is on my phone.
If not, then you need a new phone.

There have been several posts like this in the past year. The commonality is lack of any evidence, wild claims that (from a technical standpoint), CANNOT be true, etc. Danwilliams1989, LynxLyon, LynxLyon2, and Supermarketjedi...now this one.

What ACTUAL EVIDENCE do you have, aside from speculation?? How, exactly, is this a Linux issue?? Post evidence and tell us how this is Linux related..otherwise, take your complaints to the police.
