Enabling ‘My Xperia Theft Protection’ may brick your Sony Xperia device

“My Xperia Theft Protection” (MXTP) is one of the new features found in the more recent devices of the Sony Xperia line – namely the Xperia Z4/Z3+, the Xperia Z4 Tablet, and the Xperia C4 and Xperia M4 Aqua. MXTP is unique in such a way that it offers bootloader level security to your device – in layman’s terms, this will not allow a thief to just wipe your device clean or flash a new ROM without knowing your Google login.

Some people have said that 2015 seems to be a low year for Sony Mobile, especially with the generic reviews the Sony Xperia Z4 has received – and this coming from a year of loss in 2014, despite the success of the Sony Xperia Z3.

Sony’s Xperia Z5 rumored to launch September, Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM inside

The reviews for the Sony Xperia Z4 were pretty underwhelming, especially with that weird “Japan only” market release.

Verizon to release Sony Xperia Z4v in the US

Sony has been criticized for releasing a new flagship that wasn't really much of an upgrade from their previous one, the Xperia Z3, forcing them to release it as the Xperia Z3+ in the international market, rather than the Xperia Z4 that was announced in Japan. Now you can add another new confusing device to the mix. Verizon has just announced that they will be the sole distributor of the Sony Xperia Z4v in the US.

MXTP puts Xperia in lockdown mode under suspicious circumstances

While features like Android Device Manager and Sony's own My Xperia are helpful in trying to locate, ring, or lock your missing smartphone, it also lays open your device to being wiped clean by whoever has taken or gotten your gadget. And that means all programs, including the two aforementioned features, will also be removed. Sony has come up with a solution called My Xperia Theft Protection (MXTP) to ensure that only you will be able to wipe your own smartphone clean.
