I installed the cerberus anti-theft. But i want to protect it of be deleted by a factory reset.

Is this possible without root the device?

Thanks

Thatīs right. But to doing a flashmode it take time. But a factory reset itīs too easy. So if i can block the factory reset it will be great

almost all methods of resetting a device takes 5 mins at the most

i dont think you can block such a thing easily, anyway why not just use a lockscreen passwd, you cant actualy get past that unless you have USB debugging on

only smart theifs know how to reset a device via hardware

Sure, that is one option, but i do not really like use the pass every time my mobile is lock.

I would like to put a pass into the factory reset option on settings.

actualy if you have a lockscreen pass it asks for the same pass everytime you chose a option such as factory reset or anything alike or partial alike
