Default My Moto E stolen

Dear All,

My Moto E stolen today. I have android device manager enabled and already resquested a remote lock. But My phone is not online till now.
My quesion is if the thief boots into custom recovery and do a factory reset or reinstall a fresh rom, will ADM be able to lock it??


Thanks all in advance.

sry, but the device can't be tracked anymore after a factory reset.

Install Cerberus into system partition as soon as you root your phone, that's the only tracking app that survives a factory reset. It also works via sms commands even if data is turned off.

ADM won't able to locate it. Your best bet is the IMEI tracking, but for that you'll need to go to the authorities.
My friend told me,there was life outside the internet and that I should check it out.
I said "Cool.! Send me the link. !!"

Google should start a policy to block stolen IMEI on all google play service. And adm should be a system app.
