Additional customization options allow OEM-specific changes to our product core. These settings will be automatically downloaded during the installation process and applied during the first boot. Below you will find an introduction to the different Device Provisioning options.
Note: The OEM-specific device configuration is downloaded automatically during the installation of emteria.OS with the official installer application. Later changes to provisioning options on our website will not be automatically applied to already running devices.
Note: The Device Provisioning is available in the Advance and Premium plan.
Watch our tutorial video for Device Provisioning on our YouTube channel.

Device Provisioning options
Authorized SSH Keys
You can use your universal licenses for automatic activation purposes during the setup.
For further information on license groups, and licenses see or Introduction to Licenses.
After adding your universal codes, you will see all your universal codes activated for automatic activation during the setup.
For each universal code from this list, you can select a license group. This code will grant access to all unused licenses in the chosen license group. If a new device, which was not activated before, will use this code for activation then an unused license from the chosen license group will be used for this activation.
Devices that were already activated before will use the same license again.
During the initial device setup, you will see options for using these codes for automatic device activation.
Set up your initial screen options like the preferred initial screen rotation or
the orientation lock.
You can set your own boot animation and the default wallpaper.
For more information read our tutorial on how to change Boot Animation.
Here you can customize device administration and ownership settings.
You can disable individual applications or application components, if required.
For example: com.android.smspush or com.android.mms.service.
Define additional third-party modules and drivers which should be automatically installed during the initial setup of the device.
Define additional packages which should be automatically installed during the initial setup of the device.
Note: The user will have the possibility to ignore the recommended settings (disabled components or additional packages) during the setup wizard.

Authorized SSH Keys
Here you can add Public Keys in OpenSSH format to the list of authorized keys.
Note: When creating a new SSH key pair, make sure it has the RSA format.
E.g. ssh-rsa AAAAB...XYZ==
Additionally, Name and Comment have to be filled in.
You can also Enable or Disable built-it connectivity components.
Here you can set settings to overwrite system default values.
|Secure||Int||show_ime_with_hard_keyboard||1||Always show keyboard|

Here you can set customized values for standard system properties.
Note: Modifying System Properties through Device Provisioning has advantages over e.g., altering the config.txt and cmdline.txt, as these changes are persistant over OTA updates. Additionally, they are automatically for every image flashed with the emteria installer, so that they automate an otherwise repetitive task.
