If I only had a real camera instead of this cell phone, there would be awesome northern lights in the picture. But now it's mostly black :)

Taken in Espoo, Finland. It's very rare to see the aurora here.

Don't count on that you can remotely erase your Android phone

Just found my old phone that I was going to give away already for some time. So I decided to back up all photos from it and do a factory reset.

I have used the ring feature from Android Device Manager (with a browser from Google Play) many times to find a phone or tablet, and it has always worked great. When doing this I have also set up the lock and erase feature for all my phones, just in case.

So, the old phone was now backed up, and I thougt it would be a great time to test the remote erase feature as I have never done that before. I clicked the Erase button and the screen went black immediately. It didn't wake up from the power button so I thought it's now erasing. After a minute or so the phone started booting. No Google logo was displayed, so maybe it just had a watchdog reset and it didn't go through a full reset sequence.

Surprise surprise, the phone wasn't erased! Only the one Google accound I used for remotely erasing the phone was having some sync errors, but all the emails and google drive connections for the other accounts continued to work just fine. Oh, I couldn't connect to the phone anymore in Android Device Manager so I couldn't track it anymore or try to erase it again. There was no way to know the erase actually failed if I didn't have the phone in my hands. Not exactly how I'd like this to work if the phone was stolen!

Well, luckily the phone wasn't stolen, so I signed in with my password to the one google account that didn't sync anymore, and the phone popped up again in Android Device Manager. Now it prompted to Set up Lock&Erase again, which I did. The phone seemed to quickly load something as the download icon flashed in the notification bar for a few seconds.

I tried clicking the Erase button again, and this time there was a dialog telling the phone is shutting down. It booted with the google logo, and started erasing immediately. After that it booted again and this time it really was erased.

Has anyone else tried this? Any ideas how to make sure it really works, without actually trying to erase the phone?

Kiitoksia! Laskupäivä takana, reilu 5 tuntia meni mäessä. Kyllä teki hyvää ottaa monot äsken jalasta puristamasta...

Nyt on askarreltu sen verran paljon, että huomenna tuskin näkyy auringosta vilaustakaan.

It was a bit cloudy, but the sun was clearly visible through the filters anyway. First time ever for me.

Aika paljon meillä on noita Barbie-kirjoja, mutta en muista että tämä olisi tullut vastaan.

Aika hauskoja, paitsi ensimmäisestä kyllä paistaa vähän vesiputous läpi.

Discovered via Slashdot: a Lego-based Rubik's cube solver made by a 12-year old. It first inventories the cube (takes about 45 seconds) and then solves it in a minute. Nicely simple!
