 Attention! Beginning from STB software version 0.2.18, all customizations of embedded portal is necessary to make using source codes of portal. After all customizations complete, it is necessary to make compiling and minimization of source code of portal. After compiling and minization all files of portal could be placed in home directory for further image making. Source code of portal (portal-dev-*.tgz is in directory with current release http://soft.infomir.com)

Disabling System settings, Settings menu and entering to embedded portal are realized by editing rules.js files that are located in related directories. These files content the lists of items (commands) of embedded portal menus: Settings, System settings, Portal loading/ (page 404). To disable/hide any of that sections you should change value from true to false.

rules.js files are located in the next embedded portal directories of RootFS:

  • /home/web/ - “Settigns”;

  • /home/web/system/settings - “System settings”;

  • /home/web/system/pages/loader - “Loader (page 404)”.
