CrimsonLock: Anti-thief System Updated

If you have ever lost or have been robbed of your device, you will agree that is something horrible. On top of the economic loss, the information stored on our devices, even if it´s synced with our computers, is something we don´t want to leave it for who ever finds/steals our device.
XDA Member TrashKalmar has updated this great tool that will help us if we get into that horrible situation. Amongst all features included, sending a simple SMS can lock device, query coordinates from the GPS-receiver, make alarm sounds, soft reset, or even perform a hard reset.
This app is compatible with all Windows Mobile over WM5 +.
