[Q] Non-rooted S3 questions
So I feel like I know my way around rooting and putting custom roms on android devices. I've done it multiple times and love the features doing those two bring to your device. I recently received a GS3 from my employer and this will be my main device for work and personal use. But the company I work for has an application that is installed on every phone with company information on it so that the app can do things like wipe the device remotely if the phone is lost/stolen for obvious security reasons. But this application also restricts side loading apks and root users on the devices as well.
The application is Maas360:
I actually work with the helpdesk of the company, and we have what Maas360 calls 'security policies' that include the settings restrictions for each of the devices with android or iOS... some of the restrictions set in place are like I said with not be able to side load apks, no root users, must have a screen lock with pattern or pin (depending of which security policy is applied), along with other little things.
1.) Is there a way to get the Samsung bloatware off the device by flashing a Stock, non-root custom rom?
2.) Is possible to side load apps with Maas360 installed? The usual setting of 'Allow the installation of non-Google market apps' is grayed out and unchangeable currently...
If there are any other suggestions, those would be great as well. I just want my device to have the flexibility and openness of what a true Android device should have. Thanks
