Handy Theft Protection Software
XDA-Developers user popol256 has created an application that goes a long way to prevent the theft of personal information if your phone gets stolen. This app is easy to use ad isn’t a very large file.
Most of this kind of utility aren’t free or they rather large after installation, this one doesn’t even need .NETCF, its written in open C++ source all for free.
Its features include
- Remote wiping of the device (Call history, emails, text messages, contacts and more)
- Get the call history and SIM contacts sent to you
- make the stolen phone call you
- All other tracking software features…
all you have to do is download the software (NO .cab just 2 files to insert), run it once to set-up configuration then forget about it.
In the case the phone is stolen, the software will send you a SMS with the thief’s phone number, it’s GPS position, the CellID in case the GPS pos is not available.
You’ll then be able to act on your phone remotely by sending it some SMS.

Getting an upgrade is a big deal to us power users: it’s our little Android Christmas, where after a long time (for plenty of us, at least)...
The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
