Dear All,

My Moto E stolen today. I have android device manager enabled and already resquested a remote lock. But My phone is not online till now.
My quesion is if the thief boots into custom recovery and do a factory reset or reinstall a fresh rom, will ADM be able to lock it??


Thanks all in advance.

Install Cerberus into system partition as soon as you root your phone, that's the only tracking app that survives a factory reset. It also works via sms commands even if data is turned off.

ADM won't able to locate it. Your best bet is the IMEI tracking, but for that you'll need to go to the authorities.

Google should start a policy to block stolen IMEI on all google play service. And adm should be a system app.
