I'm going to be giving a phone to my grandma who will be using the phone half a world away. I wish to be able to customize this phone remotely after I've given this phone to her. For example, she may feel that the default dialer is too confusing -- I want to be able to change it, or at least allow another app to directly make calls to all (including emergency) numbers.

The thing is I have no idea what changes I may need to do (it all depends on her user experience), so I was thinking perhaps if I created a custom ROM that removed all permissions requirements (so for example, ACTION_CALL would only require normal, instead of system, permissions) I'd have the most flexibility in adjusting the UX.

No one else but my grandma will be using this phone, and no apps will be installed by anyone but me, so security doesn't seem to be an issue.

Is this a good idea? Would this be hard to do, or would it just be a search and replace job in the code?

thanks for any help!

customize it before you give it to her. It's better for her not to be using an insecure phone. the granma spy police might try to hack it
