If you have a Samsung phone, Enable "Reactivation Lock" from Settings->Security.

Wouldn't you have to use a custom PIT file to realize this? I think the best thing at the moment is the reactiviation lock, which is coded into the bootloader as far as i know.

Try Android Lost. If you convert it to a system app, you'll have a great security app (the best, in my opinion) that should survive a reset.

Great idea! I would like a developer to make a recovery (such as CWM) that could be able to give you an option to put a password on the recovery. That'd be awesome.

Try using Hidden Eye. It captures a photo using front camera every wrong password. The full version have an ability to send the photo to your email. Check it out.

Never underestimate a kid whose poor in cash but rich in time.

Cerberus does all of the things mentioned in this thread except create a hidden partition and survive a new rom flash but does survive factory resets.

If the person was tech savvy enough to flash a new rom then they are tech savvy enough to change the IMEI to circumvent blacklisting. The reality is that the vast majority of people would at most do a factory reset on a stolen device.
