    Just a heads up:
    I was messing with the Activity Launcher app when I came across TempControl system app. Being a tinkerer, curiosity got the best of me and I launched its activity.
    Turns out there is a hidden menu (most of it is in Chinese) where you can turn off temp monitoring. I presume this is the throttling mechanism that underclocks the CPU when dangerous internal temp is reached.
    As soon as I flipped the toggle, DTEK popped a notification saying an app tried to change system settings. Security dial is now on "Poor" despite me flipping temp control back on. So it seems I tripped some DTEK flag which can't be cleared.

    PSA: only way to fix/clear a failed OS integrity check in DTEK is to do factory reset.

    I'm not happy that I'll have to configure the phone from scratch but I guess I'm impressed that DTEK noticed the change immediately and told me about it instantly. In a way, I'll sleep a little bit better tonight knowing that DTEK actually does things in the background to protect me and it's not just a dummy stub with hard-coded green checkmarks without any logic behind it.

    Oh, wow! What a find. I've also heard that uninstalling the Facebook Messenger app can trigger that rating (sometimes this was resolved with a 32 second reboot). I also had an incident with my Priv where it was giving me a poor rating, but I resolved it by downgrading and upgrading the DTEK app (and a reboot).

    I assume you did try deleting app data for DTEK?

    Indeed i have. The issue is you can't delete it fully. It just deleted the updates.

    You can delete the app data for it (separately from code updates) but it won't help.
