    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum and even newer to android OS features, capabilities. :confused:

    1) Is it possible to modify (customize) the android kernel from all chinese-made tablets (ie eken, epad, apad..), since it's an open source OS ?

    2) How can I write applications for those tablets in order to make them non-uninstallable by the users ? Is it just a matter of user/group permissions or I have to modify the kernel by creating these applications as resources/services of the OS?

    Best regards

    You'll have to root the device for either of those things. For the kernel, the source has been released by telechips.
    To install an app as a system app, put it in /system/app and set the permissions to 0644 (rw-r--r--)
