Does JuiceDefender interfere with Anti-Theft?
« on: May 06, 2012, 11:05:13 AM »

JuiceDefender usually deactivates services like GPS or the data connection, when the screen is off. Does this interfere with Anti-Theft and especially with its capability to locate the device?

JuiceDefender has a feature to be deactivated via SMS in order to allow tracking apps to work:
But the JuiceDefender feature is not as mature as Anti-Theft (they don't hide the incoming SMS, they store the remote deactivation password in plain text in the device, there is no way to limit incoming SMS to certain trusted telephone numbers, ...). Therefore, I wonder if there is an easy way to deactivate JD directly via Anti-Theft? Or may be this is not even required, as Anti-Theft automatically overrides JD when the device is marked as lost?
