Android OS Updates in Kiosk ModeSolved

2 years ago

Hi there,

Does anyone have Android in Kiosk mode set to automatically update OS? I’m trying to get this to work, as I will have about 125 Androids in Kiosk mode that need their OS updates without exiting Kiosk mode.

Hey Andy,

Thank you for reaching out to us!

Hexnode lets you update the OS of your devices while they are in kiosk mode. When the update is initiated, the device will shut down and install the latest available firmware. Once the OS has been successfully updated, the device will automatically go back into kiosk mode.

However, there could be slight behavioral changes as the OS update is handled by Android, not by the Hexnode UEM app. Hence, there could be slight delays for the kiosk mode to get enabled.

Hope this clears your query.
