Guys, I don't really know what can or can't do with reactivation lock on...


1.So, I kinda know that I can't flash any CUSTOM or STOCK ROMs, or even CUSTOM Recoveries, am I correct ?

2. Can I do an wipe via recovery or factory reset on my phone with RL on ?

3. Is there anything more I must know about RL ?

And why don't you turn it off when doing so, and then enable it ?

Bro sorry I didn't' make me clear, the point is if anyone steal my phone (expensive, hard working phone) they can flash ROMs or recoveries when RL on? They can wipe the phone?



I wanna know if they can still use my phone or they gonna get a Brick... or even better if I could track the phone, coz they can't wipe so I put an Anti-thief app, block the uninstall of it and got it back.

The perfect answer for me is:

1. Yes, you are...
2. No, you can't
The third one you surprise me with the answer... ehehe

OK, I see. Afaik, you should be secure. That's the point of RL.
