TC55 - EHS - disable home / back buttons - Kiosk Mode

Just checking.. simplest option for disabling Home / Back buttons on TC55 is to use kiosk mode?  However to disable kiosk mode the only way to do this is to push new config file via USB.

Just thinking about updates by stagenow being rather painful if went this direction.

Users are accidentally tapping home button.

Apart from pushing a new

Apart from pushing a new config file through USB, you can also enable and disable kiosk mode from your own app (probably from a password-protected admin screen) by broadcasting an intent with action set to "com.symbol.enterprisehomescreen.actions.MODIFY_KIOSK_MODE":

//Disable Kiosk Mode:

Intent intent = new Intent("com.symbol.enterprisehomescreen.actions.MODIFY_KIOSK_MODE");

Intent.putExtra("enable",false);

sendBroadcast(intent);

//Enable Kiosk Mode:

Intent intent = new Intent("com.symbol.enterprisehomescreen.actions.MODIFY_KIOSK_MODE");

Intent.putExtra("enable",true);

sendBroadcast(intent);
