What I want to achieve is to be able to take an existing ROM, and customise it for my organisation. I want to be able to remove the initial set up that you get when you flash a new ROM, e.g. name, Google account etc. Do you know how I would achieve this, or the files I would need to edit?

I also want to remove some APKs and preload some APKs, I think I know how to do this its just a case of replacing them in the system folder?

Also I want to preload some Wifi settings on so set it to know our SSID and PSK, is this something which is possible?

Thanks for your help!

1st for rom you will use as base, get permission of its developers before doing it...
2nd the setup wizard you are talking about(i guess where we have to touch android) is by app in system/app named SetupWizard.apk but i think you should not delete it. it also controls few other things.
3rd replace/delete app you know about...(system/app)
4th i don't know much about preloaded settings... all i know is you will need to edit smali files of apk....

Hi

I've been playing around with this, I've extracted the ROM to a working folder and made a few changes, e.g adding and removing APKs. Then I've repackaged the ROM, but when I copy the .zip onto my SD card and try flashing it, I get an error:

Install /sdcard
Finding update package
Opening update package
Verifying Update package
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted

I can't install CWM on this device so its just using the Android System Recovery 3e

Is there something else I have to do to get it flashable?

okay.. so first get cwm recovery as you say you dont have cwm... then while making a zip with android kitchen make sure when it ziplangs all apks then it signs your rom zip... make sure you press enter or press y and then enter...
while flashing rom with cwm you get this error again then in 'ïnstall zip from sdcard' select 'toggle signature verification' then try again if still no luck rply back....
and it seams like you used this guide and you found it helpful i guess and you dint even pressed a thanks button... i don't know why you guys enjoy all stuff and don't even press thanks button.. i am not asking you for money... it wont cost you anything...

Hi

Thanks for this, I've got it sorted now.

I can't install CWM as its not compatible with my device, but it was just that the zip needed signing for my device. I found info on another forum to sign it properly, and its flashing fine now.

Thanks for your help.
