    The 51 years ago thingy is known, but not yet fixed. Not sure if I'll succeed, but I'm hoping that specifying a notification timestamp is also going to keep the phone from just displaying how old it is...

    The project is alive. But it's not in heavy development. Even "light" doesn't really describe it. I'm trying to figure out a way to spend at least a few hours per month on it. So far I'm not managing to reach that goal.

    I AM intrigued though: how did you end up with an Android device that doesn't have its own cameras and you are using USB ones? I mean, I work with such devices at my day job, so I know they are there, but for professional use, not off-the-shelf consumer devices.

    Agree that this might be awesome. I have recorded the request in the backlog, but TBH, priority is below sea-level. With current pace of development, this will not be supported for a long time.

    Don't think I can do much about this one. Please try clearing app data. This one is a problem: I have a task open to try and fix this one.

    Errrr That's some serious mess you got there.

An uninstall should clear it completely. This sounds like a dirty ROM upgrade...

    It seems that kam333 has the solution for you. Explain: VAB already tries to register itself as a start-on-boot service. Why your device won't start it, I don't know. The only reason I have seen Android do that for was if the app kept crashing. You mention no such thing. TBH, Tasker should not...
