The process of creating installation jobs on SureMDM is already explained in detail in a previous post. Click here to read it.

This post covers the steps required to prepare your Android device for silent installation from SureMDM.

Note: You will have to root your Android device and use SuperSU client in order to enable silent installation. Kindly switch to SuperSU in case you are using some other Super User client for managing super user permissions. Once you have rooted your device, follow the steps below:
