I misplaced my phone last night, I can still call it and see notifications on it through join. But my location services are turned off so I have no idea where it is. I tried android device manager but that is no good and tried find device on the xiaomi website. I do have root access on the phone so is there anyway I can enable gps remotely or do something to figure out where it is?

  • Our lost-phone tag-wiki has a few solutions for you. Once you've tried one of them successfully, be welcome to answer your own question, describing step-by-step how you succeeded :)

  • I had lost phone some time ago and had GPS turned off like you. Bad news I didn't find a way to remotely activate GPS, even some people told me that is impossible. Dec 6, 2016 at 2:51
  • @ЈеднорукиКрстивоје same advice to you: the tag-wiki mentions two alternatives, one of them still being available.

  • there is a way using metasploit and meterpreter with a rooted phone but this is probably illegal where u live. therefore there is no viable way to do so
