I'm having a problem with WidgetLocker lock screen on mt rooted GT-I9070, cuz it takes time to start automatically after the boot and till then there's no lock on the screen. I was wondering if there is a way for making the app run in background while android boots by adding scripts or any other means. Tried making it a system app... it started up a bit faster but not enough... Please let me know if there's a solution.

GT-I9070
Android 4.1.2 (DDULP8)
Kernel- Cocore-E 8.6
Recovery- TWRP

Did not try to search auto start on Play store?

Try something like this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=com.autostart

I am not sure if it will work, but you can try...

Thanks

The app is already set to "Appear on boot" and it does start when the android boots, but almost after 2 minutes. That's quite slow since its the lockscreen. I want it to be visible when android starts, just like the stock android lockscreen appears when the device boots. For that i was wondering if it could be made to start at the same time when android boots so it'd be available instantly after boot. Just want to make the app load much faster after boot.

well, when you use tasker, that won't help as tasker itself needs to start, and that takes time :P
for me widgetlocker starts up right after booting, but i always wait a minute or 2 to let android boot before doing anything
