    I have just upgraded from a G1 to the HTC Desire, and it's running Froyo courtesy of Cyanogen 6.0.1 - and the phone is excellent and running fast and all is very good, except for one thing.

    When I reboot the phone, certain apps are failing to start and these are 'meant' to be running:

    • Swype. It works perfectly, but when I reboot, I have to Settings > Language and keyboard to recheck the 'Swype' box. I obviously want this to stay checked so I can choose swype as the input method (or it keep swype as the input method as it is when I shut the phone down).
    • WeatherBug Elite - used to start on boot on my G1, I have to start it manually now...
    • Twidroyd - again, used to start on book with my G1, but now has to be started manually.
    • Bar Control - same as above.
    Other apps, such as Locale, and the gapps all start as normal on boot.

    Any ideas? I even installed 'LaunchAfterBoot' as the idea is you can add apps you want to run on boot - but it doesn't seem to be working for me.

    Any suggestions?
