[Q] How to build a custom ROM with limited set of apps
I need to build custom Android ROM that only includes a limited set of applications and won't allow the user to install any further applications its purpose is to restrict the phone as a single use device so I figured out the following steps , please correct me if anything is missing
- Customize makefiles of the system applications in platforms/packages to remove them from the build target
- Add my set of apps to the build
- remove the PackageInstaller to prevent installing any apps in the future
- fastboot oem lock the phone
Am I missing anything ? Any better alternative solutions for a single application phone?
