Someone has discovered an USSD bug that with a link allows anyone to hard reset another Android smartphone. I wanted to know which ROM are affected from this bug.

Aren't only the Samsung based Roms affected? Thought that CM7/9 don't use the USSD codes.

Cm7/9 are also affected
Just try *#06#
But touchwizz roms can make a factory reset through these codes
And cm7/9 don't support this code which performs a factory reset

ParanoidAndroid rc4 is vulnerable.

Edit: Installed TelStop as suggested, and all is fine. :D

Other words all i9001 ROMs Samsung ones from 2.3.3 to 2.3.6 KQI. And all CM9 except Ivendor RC 3 and above or based on it.

Hi @ all,

Cynob creater of the CyMod-ROM has offered a solution to remove this dangerous bug. He asked himself why the new telekom firmware doesn't encounter the problem and after a few tests, he discovered that the new buildin DialerTabActivity.apk makes the difference. So he offered the mentiones apk as odexed and deodexed one to change it with the original one. Root is required to copy it in the system/app folder.

All Credits to CYNOB

:laugh:EDIT: For me it works !!!:good:

Here is the referred thread.

He got mentioned about odex and deodex...so what am I thinking is this is the apk file built for GingerBread...If it really for GingerBread, of course won't work on ParanoidAndroid ICS...
