I recently rooted my Android phone and so I was able to add system apps (-> move a normal apk to the system space).
The reason I did this, was because of an Anti Theft app, now it can't be removed (unless with titanium backup etc.)
My question is,
Will my anti-theft app survive a hard reset to manufacturers defaults now, and will it still have the correct data for me to trace my phone?
I am using a Huawei G700 + Cerberus Anti Theft

Yes after hardreset your anti-theft will be there on your device as the app is converted into system app.

Dude system apps are those which cant be accessed without root access. most of these are system apps, pre-installed apps, and your os.
they are not deleted by any means until you clear your system or sometimes flashing a new rom.

so dont worry while factory reset, you won't lose it.
