How to avoid android service from being uninstalled?

Postby » Fri Jan 29, 2010 1:23 am

Hi ,
I am working on an Android service which will be OTA downloadable and I have few questions about it.

I see that after OTA downloading and installing the “TestService.apk” that I developed, I can go into settings->applications->Manage Applications and remove the service from the device.

• How to avoid an application or service from being uninstalled from the device by the user ?
• Is there some setting that we could enable in the AndroidManifest.xml to achieve this?
• Can the above be achieved without any OEM integration?

i am using Android SDK 1.5

I would appreciate any help in this regard.
