I believe (don't quote me on this and someone else correct me if I'm wrong) that it means the device has been reported as stolen or lost and certain functions may be limited.

Thank you, do you know if it will work using SafeStrap? I had some problems with the display and a no sound on speakers (lots of dead pixels) and amazon allowed me to keep this, but they said she need to deactivate it in order to sync content on the replacement

in that case there's a good chance it won't get updates or connect to the amazon store.

safestrap shouldn't be an issue as its not amazon software.

safestrap will not work with the chinese binary...you have to roll back too earlier software factory reset to get rid of all chinese applications then reroot with supersu to get a fully functioning safestrap. if it is a black listed unit flash thor gapps and dump amazon all together or at least mostly
