    Installed autostarts some time ago. Realised recently some stuff was running at start (like Maps) which shouldn't be so I looked at it again. Virtually no options on the main menu and no info on any apps. Seemed pretty odd so I checked the SU app and autostarts is no longer listed.

    How do I re-enter it - when I ran it it told me I needed to be rooted, but didn't ask for permission.

    Tried removing and re-installing it, didn't help.

    odd cant help with that but just checked mine since Gingervillain and the only app it lists is android system. I assume its gingerbread compatability.

    Yep, that's what I get, 'Android system' listed under the three options, nothing else.

    I think it probably is a 2.3 compatibility issue.

    I read that there's an incompatibility between the theme chooser and autostarts (not limited to GingerVillain), and that autostarts only works with the default "system" theme.

    I can confirm that if I switch the "system" theme autostarts begins to work again, and is still OK after I switch back to "green hornet". However the "fix" doesn't survive a reboot.

    Good info. Sucks though, 'cause I really don't wanna switch from my Honeybread theme setup.

    The dev is aware of the bug, but I've emailed him a bit more info. Have also asked if he is working on a fix or if its down to cm
