Default [APP] Autowipe - For those with Froyo

Autowipe is back!

Greetings all,

As most of you probably know, Froyo (2.2) includes new phone wiping abilities. I've been working on an app to take advantage of this new feature and I'm excited to let others see it.

Unfortunately for me, I do not have a Froyo Phone! I am looking for some of you very nice people with N1s or Droids that have 2.2 installed to help me out with testing, as the Emulator can only go so far. Most importantly, I'm interested in seeing if the "Subscriber Id changed" action works when removing/changing SIM cards.

Quick description: Android 2.2 (Froyo)+ includes a new administrator feature. The administrator must be enabled by the user before it can perform its actions. This application focuses on the memory wipe feature of the administrator. If your device gets lost or stolen you can set up this application to automatically wipe the memory in the following conditions: failed passwords to unlock screen, SMS password received, subscriber ID changed (SIM card).

Screenshots and APK attached below.

Thank you very much!

Update 05 March 2011:

* Integrated a Test Mode into the app.

DONATE TO ME
Don't mean to be a downer or anything but isn't this what Mobile Defense and WaveSecure do already?

I don't think that those two programs are updated to work with the admin froyo settings, it's actually what is trying to accomplish.

But neither of those apps are free or are supported outside the US as far as I know.

You can at least set WaveSecure as admin, don't know about Mobile Defense. But still, keep up the work!

i really like this app bro. So when you say wipe, does it restore factory settings? or does it literally wipe everything so that u have to restore via adb or something?

Indeed, my intention is to release it as a free app on the Market to all locations.

Thanks for the compliments. According to the documentation it never specifically says "factory reset" but I'd guess that is what it is doing: Ask the user data be wiped. This will cause the device to reboot, erasing all user data while next booting up.

now that would be nice.... both phone and SD at that. That way if you get someone smart enough to track down how to bring up the bootloader and restoral menus, they won't have anything to work from....

Keep up the good work bro.

This is an excellent alternative, eh?
Can you please give us a version with "SIM"?
Thanks.
