Does anyone know how to edit the Autostarts? I can't find it anywhere...
Nevermind... I got it...
I would like a tutorial if you found one.
My guess is that it controls the apps that start when you boot up the phone.
Hey.. this guy took my Signature style...
Yeah that's a little odd to say the least lmao.
I would also like to know what this guy is talking about specifically.
Its an app that allows u to to edit what starts at bootup. Its a paid app called" autostarts".
it allows ALOT more settings than jsut start up though.
I use it, its useful to keep things like city ID from popping up without messing with the apk itself.
Basically the app gives you a listing of criteria ("after start up", "SMS sent", etc.) and shows you what process would start when the criteria is meant. Some annoying bloat apps like Amazon mp3 are set to start at random times like "when location changes". You can go through each criteria and switch off the process/app from starting. I've had it for awhile and I dont think its detrimental in any way as long as you dont go crazy or stop an important system app from running. It also doesnt permanently stop an app from working. I can set amazon mp3 to not start when my location changes but could still start it normally whenever I want.
I still next extensive reasoning's to buy market apps that aren't Root related...
Not sure what you mean here...
Autostarts is root required
I am meaning, root software that grants access to parts of my hardware to alter....
Why pay for something to change the start screen when you can get some one to do it for free and then just load it?
I believe its only a dollar, and as far as I know, the only way of preventing certain apps or processes from starting under a specific condition. Not all of them are from bloat apps, built-in ones like music launch at certain times as well. Its not just changing what starts when you turn on your phone.
Sorry, I still dont understand what your saying I think lol
