Android :: Force Apps To Start On Boot?

Dec 3, 2009

Unfortunately, I've had to uninstall several apps that I liked because they force start on boot and my Droid was becoming completely laggy because of too many apps starting on boot. I understand that some apps/widgets need to start on boot, but others its completely unnecessary. At a minimum, make an option in settings to let the user decide if we want it to start on boot up.

I just uninstalled Note Everything, Estrong File manager and Weatherbug because they were starting on boot. I love MixZing and I am kind of annoyed that it starts on boot, but its an app I "need" so I can't uninstall it. I'll probably email all these devs and ask about giving the option not to start on boot.

Motorola Droid X :: How To Choose Which Apps Start On Boot

Sep 17, 2010

Is there a way to have programs not auto-start, like Quickoffice, that we would like to use from time to time and not get rid of it completely just by renaming it?

General :: List Apps With (Automatically Start At Boot) Permission

Aug 28, 2012

Is there a quick way to show all the apps installed on my Android device which have the "Automatically start at boot" permission?

I know there are a few "startup manager" apps that allow to modify startup behaviour, but most of them require root access and moreover they also require auto start at boot permission to work.

I'd just like a way to figure out which of my apps have that permission so I can decide which is worth keeping and which to uninstall.

General :: How To Interrupt Android Boot Sequence To Force It Boot To Linux Kernel Only

Sep 12, 2013

I am trying to do some low level performance testing related to device processor cores through adb which I feel it is affected by Android background services and system stuff.

As I know that the Android boot sequence stages are as follow:

1.Execute Boot ROM code.
2.Execute the boot loader.
3.Load the Linux kernel.
4.Launch Zygote, which initializes the Dalvik VM.
5.System server which loads the Android system.

So my question is how can I interrupt this sequence to force it stop on stage 3 to load Linux kernel. This can implement my intermediary performance testings before loading again Android system.

Does Fastboot or Clockworkmod recovery can load my device to a kind of Linux kernel?

Android : How To Start An App After A Force Stop?

Oct 22, 2010

If I Force Stop an app (via Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->Any App->Force Stop) will the app ever start up automatically again or is the only way to start it up again to have the user start it. I have an app that starts a service. The service registers an alarm I've defined, with the Alarm Manager and this is recieved as expected. In my manifest I've defined a TimerIntentReceiver, to receive that alarm I've defined. If I Force Stop the app then is it possible to have the Alarm Manager "wake" my app up via the TimerIntentReceiver I've defined. I'm not seeing this happen. Once I Force Stop my app it never runs again unless I manually start it. Is there anything I can listen for, apart from BOOT_COMPLETE, to start up my app? Or does the user always have to start all apps.

Android :: Force App To Always Start With Activity1 Use Of Home Button?

Sep 2, 2010

This app has multiple activities: eg: Activity1 -> Activity2 -> Activity3. If the app is opened after the Home button is used while in Activity2, the app returns to Activity2, but the desired functionality is for the app to always start with Activity1 from the launcher. Adding a finish() to the onStop() for Activity2 does cause app to start with Activity1 following use of the Home button, but then Activity3 causes the app to revert to Activity1 when it finishes, rather than Activity2, which is also undesirable. Is there a way to force the app to always start with Activity1 following use of the Home button? code....

Android :: Start A Service During Device Boot-up

May 24, 2010

I have written a class which extends the Service class of android and would like to launch the service during device boot-up. From the service I would like to receive the intents such as boot completed and screen off and on. Currently I am using a BroadcastReceiver to get the boot completed intent and then on starting a service to receive screen on and off intents. But I would like to remove either the broadcast receiver or the service. Any inputs.

Android : How To Control Which Services Start At Boot?

Nov 23, 2009

Is there way to control which applications/services start when the phone boots? Every now and then, the voice control, moxie mailer, etc will be running when I don't use them, need them, or want them to run. I'd like to be able to control which items are running in the background, much like an 'msconfig' in Windows.

Motorola Droid X :: Way To Force START An Application?

Oct 22, 2010

I have two apps that I must manually start on each power on: "Call Filter" and "Phone Found". Surely there must be a program that allows you to START selected apps at power on. I know there are many apps that allow you to prevent and app from starting, but I have not seen one that allows you to start selected apps. [DROID X, 2.2, not rooted]

Android :: Start Service At Boot Based On User Settings?

May 6, 2010

I'm trying to write an app that consists of an activity that manages a background service. However, I want to implement a user setting for automatically starting the service up at boot time. I have user settings implemented with SharedPreferences and I have the services starting up at boot by using a BroadcastReceiver and listening for BOOT_COMPLETED. However, I can't figure out a good way to implement a setting so that the service is only started at boot if said setting is enabled. I can think of a few cheap ways to do this (such as messing with onCreate() in the service, or creating/checking for a file on SD card) but I want to follow good practice. There must be a good way to do this because there's tons of apps out there that do it, I just can't find anything online about how to do it.

Android : Need To Start Bluetooth Settings Activity Force Closes With Null Pointer Exception

Nov 19, 2010

I'm trying to bring up the standard window for Bluetooth Settings (with Device name, Discoverability etc). However, general approach with startActivity(intent) ends with NullPointerException pointing to onCreate:135. Checking with the Android code, I've found that at line 135 they get some extras from the intent. So I prepare the same extras (names I've found in android core BluetoothDevicePicker interface) and issue it -- the same effect with NullPointerException. Might be the wrongs names of the extras I prepare? So is there a way I can see those extras (with names especially) from the intent the system itself submits when I open Bluetooth Settings manually acting like a user. Code...

Nexus :: 2.2.1 Update - Force Close Launcher / Won't Boot

Oct 12, 2010

I've noticed my Nexus acting a bit buggy since the 2.2.1 update. Lots of force closes with the launcher. (which is exactly why I shredded and burned my old MyTouch for). After FINALLY getting a THIRD 16 gig card, after the other two got "damaged" costing me so far 25-30 gigs of content, I loading it up with movies and songs for my vacation. I go to reboot and it keeps looping the boot animation but wont boot up. Getting really close to kissing Android good bye as I've had NOTHING but bugs and damaged SD cards and an overall terrible user experience for a year and a half with two phones. I know we're only really two years into development but how much longer do we have to wait for a finished product that I don't have to keep making excuses for? More to the point WTF is going on with the boot loader on my phone and how do I fix it?

Android :: Time To First Screen - Boot Up And Application Start Time?

Aug 25, 2009

at the moment I am thinking about a new app and need some information to decide whether to develop on Android or an alternative OS. I am particularly interested in "time to first screen", "boot-up time", "time to first Audio" and "app-start" (can be any from the android market or even one of the pre-installed ones) time? Does anyone know a source or perhaps measured those numbers?

Android : Should I Still Force Our Apps To API Level 2?

Oct 7, 2009

Google suggests in Dev Guide that we set the API level as low as possible to cover most of the devices. Somebody recently pointed out in my app that when they are typing in the password the automatic suggestions pop up making it annoying. I found out the solution, but is only available in API level 3.I guess my question is, are there devices out there that use Android 1.1 still?

General :: Force Android To See Apps?

Nov 10, 2012

So I have been flashing a couple of roms lately and everytime I flash a rom, the new ROM sees all the apps that are installed. However, it's not doing that anymore and I have 1GB left of storage with no apps installed. Is there a way to force android to see these apps? If not, is there a way to just wipe all of the app data that is on there so I can start over?

I just tried a factory reset and it didn't erase anything
