Default Using avast! Hard Reset Protection

If I somehow brick my custom ROM and need to back up to a previous state, will this security app cause problems and not allow me to fix my phone?

Just wondering! Thanks.

I always used that,and never had a problem flashing roms (didnt turn it off before flashing)
i think it only stops say if you lost your phone, and somebody found it, and they did the hard reset option in storage (factory reset)
doesnt think it stops it at all at the custom recovery/ODIN level

Ah, that makes me feel a lot better. Thanks man.

But does that mean they could instead flash a backup or something onto the phone to bypass that "hard" reset?

yes, if a computer geek finds it you're done

but with sprint you can have them blacklist the EMEI
on GSM they could still use your phone
