If I install Cerberus on a rooted phone, will it survive flashing the phone?!!


Depends on what you flash. Living on the /system partition, it will survive a . But flashing a new ROM would overwrite that partition and thus remove Cerberus.

If, on the other hand, you e.g. just flash GApps, Cerberus would survive – as that doesn't wipe/overwrite the /system partition.

  • and this applies to all other anti-theft apps, none of the existing ones survives wiping out the /system partition.

  • To my knowledge, that applies to all system apps – regardless of their purpose :)
