Anyone else using Cerberus? When i change some settings the phone reboots. It also never takes a pic on incorrect password on lockscreen.

If you're using stock kernel then yes, it will reboot on settings save. This happens because Cerberus writes the settings to an xml file in /system/etc so that it can still function even after a factory reset (which wipes data but not system.)

Problem is the stock kernel blocks remount rw and writes to the system partition, thus the reboot.

You'll need to find a custom kernel with rw enabled.

I am running complete stock. Cerebrus works perfectly without any reboots. It even sends me an email of the person as soon as someone enters a wrong unlock code

You can do that from within the app, but you want to make sure you reset the dial code to something you remember too.

Maybe I'll install the flash zip style one.
