    how would i create a script to run or start an application just as if I was to run it from the launcher

    I want to use phone prioritizer to run the script at a scheduled time so it runs the app at a scheduled time.

    any help would be appreciated.

    might be able to add it to the init.rc file, but im not sure off the top of my head.

    Will ask around.

    init.rc is in the base folder once you've adb'd into your phone.

    I got the init.rc file and backed it up so I can edit it and replace it it does not work and i will on the safe side make a nandroid backup of the whole phone.

    but now what is it I need to add to make it work,

    and have you had time to check this out with any other devs,

    lastly is there a forum I may be abe to get help on this in depth, I understand that this is not a high priority to many, no need for it to be but I'd like to make it happen for my phone

    Thanks again to You RedFury and any other devs who may jump in on this in this thread or behind the scenes
