I just need to root it so i can install anti-theft avast root version so if the phone is factory default eraset its installed right back.
yes it protects avast from being wiped with a factory reset by making it a system app, but a simple /system wipe from custom recovery, flashing a new rom or flash a ruu will remove it.
its useful if the person that find/steal your phone is not an experienced user but it can be erased easily by everyone here on xda.
however im using it myself, its a nice app, used it maybe 1 or 2 time to find that I left my phone at my job.
