[Q] Need Help Creating a flashable ROM
So, I have been attempting this on my own for a couple weeks with little to no luck, and searching XDA hasn't really been fruitful, so I thought I would ask.
So I work in Tech Services at the library at my local university. My team is in charge of electronic equipment loans, and recently purchased 20 Galaxy Tab 3 10.1s for student checkout. What I am trying to do is make a straight factory ROM that is flashable through TWRP but with a set of 3 e-book apps added into system apps. The 3 apps I need added are Kindle, Overdrive Media Console, and Bluefire Reader (it is after all, a library). Doesn't need to be rooted or anything, but to speed up turn-around time, it would be nice if it would wipe data automatically as part of the flashing process so we don't have to worry about peoples passwords or account info being compromised. I have tried many different things, but can't seem to get A: the apps added correctly (they install but FC as soon as I try to open them) and B: a script added that would wipe before flashing the ROM. As far as I can tell through my research, it might be possible, but far beyond my skill and knowledge levels. Honestly, I am not even sure if flashing through recovery is the best solution. I have looked at Samsung Configurator as well as many 3rd party MDM tools and none of them seem to be able to do what I want. Possibly something that could be flashed through Odin?
Any thoughts, suggestions, advise, help, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
Moderators: If this needs to be moved, feel free to do so. I wasn't sure where it belonged, but figured this would be okay.
Edit: Don't know if it matters, but they are Wifi only models.
