    I got this Note II just last week which the damned shop staff must have fooled around a bit because it has this little image hidden somewhere inside promoting some Japanese adult video site. I've tried wiping the partition and user data thing clean a few times. Formatted the micro SD card a few times too but it's still there. Seems like it's hidden in the phone itself because it'll come back after a while even without the micro SD card inside.

    The image is called Untitled-1.jpg and it can't be deleted or moved. It can only be edited or shared. Those are the two options and nothing else.

    Does anyone here know how to do a real wipe of the phone? It's kind of troublesome for me to bring it back to the shop because it was bought from another state by a friend as a gift.

    The virus or whatever seems to be hidden in the phone itself because I've tried to wipe the partition and done a factory reset a few times without the micro SD card inside and it's still there.
