Title: Device software customization

Abstract: Systems, methods, and other embodiments associated with device software configuration are described. One example method is executed by a personal electronic device (PED) having a read only memory (ROM) configured with a boot loader, a BASE ROM partition, and a customization file store partition (CFSP). The method includes receiving a customization package and storing it in the CFSP. The method includes invoking a one-time installation process to customize PED software, settings, characteristics, and so on, based on the CFSP contents. The method includes invoking a boot-time installation process to configure a file system filter driver on the PED to control access to CFSP contents based, at least in part, on a file attribute associated with the CFSP content.
