Default CronTab for Android: Run task scheduler on your android phone.

We can use crontab on our phones for scheduling various tasks such as reminders, backups, scheduled reboots, wifi on-off, etc.... So i creat this flashable zip file to enable cron on your phone.

- Required: Root + busybox, init.d support (if your kernel doesnt support this feature, u can use universal init.d, uni-init,... instead.

- How to install:
1, Just download the zip file
2, go to recovery and flash it
3, Done, let's go!

USE:
- the "root" direction is "/system/etc/cron.d/root". Just open "root" file and add your task

- there are two default tasks that i added into "root" file. u can also modify it as u want :

1- Clean Ram drop caches every 30 minutes

2- perform Superclean (cache, davik cache,...) at 1h AM monday every week (credit to zeppelinrox)

CHECK CRONTAB WORKING OR NOT

open "/data/clean_ram_caches.log" every 30 minutes to check the cron worrking or not:

or open terminal and type "pgrep crond", cron is working if the result is a PID (example: 425, 489,...)


Worrking fine on my L3. Should worrk on other devices also
