My brother sold my mum his old phone and used factory reset, forgetting that he installed where's my droid, it was locked. He hoped that flashing (only updated so far to ICS), would unlock the device.

Unfortunately it did not. And I believe I need to be able to access the device to root it, with the method I'm following.

Is anybody familiar with where's my droid and whether the locking is permanent? Does the control panel (if there is one? for WMD) allow you to manage devices like Google's device manager?

This is really stressful, I am at a loss with what can be done.

Oh wow, I feel like a right sod.

Apparently you can't unlock this device without a sim card, after a factory reset. Once a sim card was inserted, it just worked.
