Right now, I am looking into building custom Android OS. Here is my constraints,
-- It is a custom build for a new Android tablet
-- It should launch our own app when the OS boots. This app will be main entry to the tablet. Need to lock down/remove all the other apps and launcher screens
-- Device drivers are need to be changed while building according to the hardware
-- There is no constraint on which version of Android need to be used
Hardware details of the tablet:
1.2Ghz Cortex A9 processor,
a 7” display of 1024x600 resolution
comes with Android 4.2
Do I need to look for building a custom ROM or with a new design of Android launcher app I can enable these? For installing new device driver I hope I need root access. I have searched a lot of tutorials on all the topics. Can anyone suggest me where should I start with according to my needs?
Let me know if I need to provide any more details.
