How to prevent iPhone being erased with iTunes in case it's stolen?
Hi there all,
I want to know if some of you guys know about any Cydia Package that prevents my iPhone from being erased with iTunes in case someone steals it.
I know there are a lot of packages out there that helps track your iPhone, but if the thief is smart enough, he/she will turn of the iPhone and later on, turn it ON just to erase it.
Please any suggestions I will really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

If the iPhone is wiped out, it will be more easily for the thief to use it for him, I want him to get the iPhone useless (NOT ERASABLE, so in the mean while I can track it down with Cylay and even lock the shut down).
I really don't care about the data I have, no one will care when you have a $600 phone on your hands. What you will want to do is ERASE IT SO YOU CAN SELL IT OR USE IT.
I pretty do much with the 4 digit Lock Code because it would be difficult to make the combination (or at least time consuming).
You put a tracker like Cylay, fine. You lost your iPhone, you look for a laptop to track it down.
You start to track it down, OK you get its location.
In the meanwhile, I (the thief) just plug it in my laptop, open iTunes, Click Restore and Ta Daaa!!! New iPhone for me! Without any junk and UNTRACEABLE!!!
If he continues to try to erase it I will be ABLE TO TRACK IT DOWN as it will be turned ON, 4 Digit Locked in LockScreen and with Cylay running.

Obviously all you have on your phone is a couple of Britney Spears CDs and pictures of your miniature poodle. Me- my data is far more valuable than the phone. I want my data wiped immediately if not sooner if my phone goes missing.
