With this app modul you could prevent selected apps of running on system startup. Only apps with the permission BOOT_COMPLETED are shown in the list. System apps are marked with an exclamation mark.
Your device has to be rooted to install the required X-posed framework
Description for non-developers:
Each app with permission “android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED” is placed in a (Windows slang) “startup folder”. For my 200 installed apps that are about 33%. On system boot every of these apps gets started. Possible options:
– app shows a notification
– app starts a (hidden) service in background
– app exits again (eg user has set an option)
If you disable an app in the BootManager it does not get that event and is not started at *next system boot*.
An app still starts at system boot? Android has many other events which could start an app!
Example: Skype has the permission “android.permission.MOUNT_UNMOUNT_FILESYSTEMS”. This means, (again Windows slang) if you insert a DVD into you drive, “autorun” is executed and starts Skype.f000h
Note: As your sd-card is mostly always inserted, this could be used to start apps at system boot….
