This should work on any Jellybean Android 4.1.x ROM built from AOSP, like CM10, AOKP, etc.
Please read this entire post before doing any of this!
This feature is now in AOSP fully as of Android 4.2!!
After reading about the recent discovery of multiple user code being in JB, I decided to mess with it.
^^ Um, yes, I took it from Him.
And it works on TouchWiz, Just so you know.
Okay guys, we can work with multiple users
on this device.
Before we begin, here's what you need:
1- Root access granted
2- Terminal Emulator
[from Google play] OR adb enabled
3- Busybox installed [increases the range of commands accepted by the emulator]
Now open Terminal Emulator, and type these codes to see the maximum users allowed
It would show nothing.
To change the maximum users allowed, type
setprop fw.max_users <your required number>
Mine is 4.
To create a user, type
pm create-user <username>
To remove a user, type
pm remove-user <usernumber>
:- the primary user number is 0
. The users you have created would have numbers from 1 and onwards.
If you want to change the user names after creation, go to [B]/data/system/users/userX
is the user number, from 0 and onwards.
0 is the primary user.
The second user can still access your messages, contacts, etc. It's best if you set a lock screen password on your own user, and select another launcher for the second user, hide all the sensitive applications using some application hider.
If you are on the second user, most of the data from the primary user is hidden (you can not acces it).
- unlocked levels in Angry Birds
- google account
- home screen
But there are a few exceptions:
- all the apps are there, as if they were just installed
- the recent apps menu
- the use-app-as-default-setting (I don't know the official name). For example: if you set Apex as default in the Guest account, it will also be default in the primary account.
- your messages!!
Original Method for 4.1 below:
1- created maximum users
2,3- created new user TEST
4- home screen of new user TEST
5,6- removed user TEST (user #1) (primary is #0)
wouldn't cost you anything.
