Does it matter what version of Android I'm running (Samsung stock JB)? I just see 4.0.3+. I know some modules I'ev used only work on say Samsung, Xperia, vanilla etc. Is this compatible with all?

hey common, I just told you what I use and what I want from your app and asked whether or not it will happen.

As far as I know, its generic, so yes, it should work with most. You need whatever requirement there is for the latest xposed framework. If it doesn't work properly, just post back with your findings.

Quick reply - thanks! I'll check it out tomorrow and report back if there's any problems.

In your first post you said "please, add to this app an ability to turn off any apps." This module can already block any user-installed apps from startup, and if you donate it can block all system apps as well. I can only assume that you want the full functionality without having to donate in which case I suggest you attempt to learn Java/C++, study programming logic, study the Android SDK and Xposed Framework, and build your own Xposed module. Then once you see the hours of work involved perhaps you'll be able to appreciate all of the hard work developers put into their projects and you'll see that the small amount of the donation is a bargain for the amount of work involved.

In your second post you said "why is it hard to make just one mod(app) for Xposed which will control boot like Startup Manager and maybe have something else." As I said, this module already blocks apps from booting just like Startup Manager. The only thing it doesn't do is force apps to startup that normally wouldn't, but I don't see how this would be at all useful. Regarding "maybe have something else" I personally cannot read your mind and I'm pretty sure defim can't either. I will assume that by "maybe have something else" you mean "why can't it also control all of my kitchen appliances and force them to bake me cookies, as I feel that's the most likely meaning of your ambiguous statement. Again, I would suggest that you attempt to learn Java/C++, study programming logic, study the Android SDK and Xposed Framework, and build your own Xposed module. At that point you should see that the "maybe have something else" is impossible.

My point is, you just said that the other app is better. You did NOT say what specifically you think this module is missing.

defim did a very good work, and with donation you can get an activator that work for both stop receiver and boot manager.

The GUI isn't the most beautiful on earth, but it works without flaws and doesn't kill battery in an abusive way or eat ram like cookie monster eat cookies, while other solutions i won't name do most of the time. (but they was probably the best at their time of creation, the world goes on and things change)

Regards.

french translation

Hi!

I've done a new & better french translation, at least without so much spelling mistakes.
Hope this helps!

:good: that's good !

oh just a little detail:
could you remove on my file the final dot on these 4 phrases?
Code:
<string name="settings_logging">
<string name="settings_iconhide">
<string name="settings_vibration">
<string name="settings_fastboot">

and that will be ready to release :)

    The fast boot feature works well and the gap is significant.
    Even if the BOOT_COMPLETED permission doesn't seem to be enough to manage everything Boot Manager remains an useful module (once again :))

    Awesome module!!

    However, I've found an app that ignores this module: Network Speed (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=netspeed.pt).

    You block it, reboot, and in the xposed log it appears as denied:

    [BootManager] 2014-05-15 01:22:41 denies: Network Speed -- netspeed.pt

    However, the app auto-starts anyway. (Also, this app is bugged and always auto-starts, even if inside that app you don't enable the autostart option. I tried this module just for this app but it fails :( ).

    I think this app listens for the network connected/disconnected/changed events, if you install the app, you could see the permissions (in german)
    Netzwerkverbindungen abrufen (network)
    WLAN-Verbindungen abrufen (w-lan)
    My other app ReceiverStop could prevent that an app could receive these broadcasts, it should help

    Reboot Tailspin

    After updating BootManager from 2.0.5 to 2.0.7, my Xperia Tipo Dual w/Android 4.0.4, went into a reboot tailspin. This happened already under two attempts, separated with a restoration from Nandroid backup. There is always a chance that something else might matter, but I post this in case someone else ran into a similar experience. At this moment I am hesitant to try 2.0.7 again, but might do it if there were a need to pursue this more.

    Have you also updated Xposed to the new 2.6? In it's thread are some more reports about reboots

      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!

      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 :)

      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 of BootManager.

      @NeuDroid: You have other apps by me installed? Some are "patched"? Thats the problem.. All apps by the same developer (exactly with the same certifcate signed) can not have different signatures. Try to uninstall the modified :)
      @[email protected] & @svil3 Yes, I'm working on an update

      @chester.anjan: As nobody complained, it seems :) Nougat support was added some weeks ago

      I use multiple apps made by defim. It's one of the many reasons why I am still on Nougat. I would consider jumping ship and moving to Oreo if these apps by defim got updated.

      Me too. But since LineageOS moved all my devices to Oreo I had little choice if I still want to get updates ;).

      None the less it *is* possible to live without some of the Xposed modules I used. Defims Bootmanager and LightningWall are substitutable. (AFWall+ and AppOpps (mentioned two postings above). While AFWall+ has a supporting Xposed Module, AppOpps is more inconvinient if you do not want to purchase it. (But it is very cheap to buy ;)) You can override the autostart permission. But you have to do it app by app. If you use the payed version, you can sort by permission and add the autostart permission as a sorting option. Then it is quite as good as Boot Manager.

      But I still miss a working ProtectedApps. But Oreo has something now. And there is also a "fork" of Xprivacy (PrivacyLua) aviable.

      It would be really nice of defim[1] if he would clarify from time to time if he is still working on Oreo or if his modules are "dead". Right now it feels like rovos work on Xposed for Nougat and Oreo ;)

      [1] @defim: Please do not confuse it with a request for an ETA! But as a donator I think it would be fair to know if waiting for it is an option. I would rather not use your modules at all if you only continue developing because of your donators. Your software has done a good service for many years and that was much more worth for 10 € that most of the other software I paid for ;). But I would love to switch back to your modules - just because they are easy(er) to use than most other bloated Apps.

      Good method for permanent permissive mode on boot. Works well with this module

      Sent from my Nexus 5

      Next release 3.1 does also support enforcing mode
