    How to change system settings on TC70

    Adam Wozolek

      I am in the middle of deploying a number of TC70s using Soti Mobicontrol as a MDM.

      I can't find a way to easily remotely push changes to the system settings like "screen_off_timeout".

      Any advice is greatly appreciated!

          Hi,

           

          This procedure worked for me with SOTI Mobicontrol on a TC70 KitKat:

           

          • Send the following command to the device: watchsettings on
          • On the device, make the desired settings change
          • Send the following command to the device: watchsettings off
          • Select the device on the web console and expand the Logs section on the right side of the screen
          • In the message column, look for an event that looks like this:
          • Custom log (URI:content://settings/system SETTING:screen_off_timeout VALUE:60000)
          • From the above you need to extract the settings type, settings name and settings value. The type will be system (sys) or secure (sec)
          • The command format will be writesecuresetting -<settings type> <settings name> <settings value>
          • For this example, the type is system so we will write –sys, the name is screen_off_timeout and the value is 60000
          • When put together it forms writesecuresetting –sys screen_off_timeout 60000

           

          This works for a number of settings. Unfortunately not for all of them.
