I am wondering if there is something similar to the Cydia Background Manager application for iOS that can be used on Android devices. I am looking for something that will allow me to force an app that goes to the background to stay in a foreground state like you can do with the Background Manager application. This is the app I am referring to just in case... cydia.saurik.com/package/kr.slak.backgroundmanager I see that this has been brought up before, but after reading through those threads I didnt see any mention of how to or if its even possible to control how the app is running like you are able to do with the Background Manager app. My current device is not rooted. As I understand it if I were to root my motorola xoom I would have to do something to the bootloader which would in turn wipe out my apps and what not. Thank you.
