Hello, just wondering how or is it possible to make my android application run in KIOSK mode(want only my app running and no access to close it)? Planning to create an app like inventory application.. when boot to android OS a specific app will run and there is no access for navigation(home, back) keys, please give guide on how to?

Thanks in advance.

I read in the other forum that it's possible by building custom ROM. How do I start building custom ROM?

Thanks and more power!

To build the Android source code, follow the instruction in these links.

To hide the navigation bar, install the " Full!screen App." from the Google play.
Or you can enable/disable the navigation bar in your application.

You can run android KIOSK mode without rooting your device as follows. Screen pinning allows you to select an app to pseudo-lock the screen to. From the app overview screen, hit the pin button on the bottom-right of the app you’re interested in, and you’ll get asked for a confirmation if you want to pin the screen. Once pinned, the status bar (top of the screen) disappears, and the navigation buttons (bottom of screen) are individually useless. Depending on how you’ve set your Screen Pinning settings, you also won’t receive any notifications from your device.
To exit pinned mode, press the ‘back’ and ‘overview’ buttons together, and you’ll get kicked to the lock screen. Once you unlock your device, your app will no longer be pinned.
