I have purchased a totally new phone (G2) and when I got it, it was already with a custom ROM with SU and a clockwork recovery. I have a receipt from the purchase with date and time. I need to be able to prove that the ROM and recovery were installed before I made the purchase.

How can I find time of rom or recovery installation?

  • It will probably be hard to prove without a doubt that you didn't install the ROM. Any timestamps on the phone can be edited with root. – Stephen Schrauger Oct 9 '14 at 18:11
  • Files are rewrote with updated timestamps as well. I researched for a couple of hours, found a bunch of hooey. Wasn't able to find a conclusive answer for actual system creation time on device. – HasH_BrowN Oct 9 '14 at 20:44
