Anybody still there?
I'm new to the Android world and I'm pretty comfortable in the anti-theft/anti-loss area with my Macbook.
Basically, it has FileVault enable, firmware password protection preventing the theft from overwriting my OSX installation and Undercover software with a few guest accounts allowing theft playing on the laptop so I can take pictures, screenshots and log his input.
However, I didn't find a similar way for protecting my Galaxy Note from reflashing its ROM through Download/CWM mode. An Undercover-like solution isn't possible since Android doesn't support multiple user accounts, so I must allow the theft play with my own personal data so he'll think the device is unsecured. For critical apps like Gmail main account and Gtalk, I could install and app that asks for password. The Settings menu could be protected this way too.
Currently, all of my protection is limited to Samsung Dive and Android Lost, but any junior technician in the suburban area can learn how to reflash my GNote with a brand new stock ROM. Looks like iPhone or even Nokia (because of its non-mainstream status these days) are better provided with recover options, am I wrong?
