Like the lojack for Intel AT Laptops that works on the hardware level so that it can still be tracked when the OS is wiped or re-installed. I like the idea of the software being not only hidden but resilient from the thief.

SeekDroid lets you hide the app on the phone so nobody knows it's there. You can remotely locate, lock, or wipe the phone if it gets stolen or you lose it. Unfortunately I know of no hardware-level solutions for theft recovery like on the Intel Vpro-enabled laptops.

Looked into SeekDroid and I have to say I'm already impressed with the software! Got it all installed and working, this will do what I need it to. Thanks for the info!

Sounds like a cool app, for those interested there are pro (paid) and lite (free) versions available.

The only app i know that works great is Avast. I have only tried it using CM (Which our phones will have soon enough since the BL is now cracked ) it will remain hidden on your phone even after a factory reset and the app is password protected.Search market for avast

cerberus is pretty good too.
Lock it down, wipe it out, track it. hide the device from app tray.
