Default [APP][4.0.3+ & GB][XPOSED] BootManager

Run only the apps you want at system start.
With this app modul you could prevent selected apps of running on system startup. Only apps with the permission BOOT_COMPLETED are shown in the list. System apps are marked with an exclamation mark.
To restrict system apps you have to donate. ReceiverStop accepts this donate key too!

Important:
This app needs the Xposed Framework. The framework requires root access for installation. Don't forget to enable the module in Xposed. You can grab it here: Xposed Installer

Donation:
  • No self-promotion in the app.
  • System apps could also be selected
  • You support this app and further development!

Xposed Repository: http://tinyurl.com/ogfq3t7
Changelog: http://tinyurl.com/k75vfbv


My personal intension to create this app:
IMHO the best way to prevent apps from beeing executed at sytsem startup is with Xposed - and there was now module/app available. So i created one

Translation:
You could find here a interface to translate the english strings: http://tinyurl.com/okycacj
A free account of www.oneskyapp.com is required to edit. Additional, please attach your email address or send it via PM


Description for non-developers:
Each app with permission "android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" is placed in a (Windows slang) "startup folder". For my 200 installed apps that are about 33%. On system boot every of these apps gets started. Possible options:
  • app shows a notification
  • app starts a (hidden) service in background
  • app exits again (eg user has set an option)
If you disable an app in the BootManager it does not get that event and is not started at next system boot.

ReceiverStop
An app still starts at system boot? Android has many other events which could start an app!
Example: Skype has the permission "android.permission.MOUNT_UNMOUNT_FILESYSTEMS" . This means, (again Windows slang) if you insert a DVD into you drive, "autorun" is executed and starts Skype.
Note: As your sd-card is mostly always inserted, this could be used to start apps at system boot....

Other triggers are: A BlueTooth device (dis-)connect, connection type changes (2g/3g/wlan) or power adapter is (un-)plugged.
All these could be restriced with my other app "ReceiverStop". Be carefull and do not disable the wrong.
Btw, ReceiverStop accepts also the donate key (from my webseite) of BootManager.

First, your tinyurl links are broken for me...
Direct links:
http://bootmanager.apk.defim.de/
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pk.bootmanager

Then I think minimal informations (and screen shot) about application would be preferable in this thread.
Not just the link that redirects to homepage or Play Store...

There's not much to say
All links are working, except www.xposed.info which is down. Maybe you ask here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401

I created this thread, because Xposed entry requires one. What's about the things you list?

You should post change log here also, so every mate can know what changes made in new version instead of opening every time that site.

No changelog here. You have alway to click somewhere, either to open this thread or play store or xposed repository...

Simplest way: use playstore which shows changelog on update
