Sign [Q] Tab 3 Kids Rom on Nexus 7

Hello,

I am very new to the android community converting from ios, I am looking to purchase 2 tablets for my boys this Christmas. I am not willing to purchase any leapfrog or similar devices because of their limitations. I found that Samsung has developed a tab 3 kids edition with kids mode which seems to be very nice.

My question is, I would rather purchase a Nexus 7 over the Tab 3 because of the system specs. I am curious if it is possible to install the rom from the tab 3 into the nexus 7? Has anyone tried this or is it even possible?

Here is a link to the rom;

I have already looked into Kidoz, Kids place! and zoodle but none of them look or when tested on my friends nexus 7 were sufficient.

Nope Samsung has touchwiz rom, which is specifically made for Samsung. I don't know of any ports over to nexus. However I'm not sure what kids mode would have that you couldn't customize with any other rom/launcher/app combination.

You could set up a second account on the device and restrict things on it. Just set a password on your owner account and use it like an "administrator". You can restrict use of the app store, browser things like that.
