What device and android version are you running? Did you try granting the permisions manually in settings?
Sky Elite 5.5 Octa, running marshmallow 6.0, arm64 . Thanks for the quick response

The permissions are blacked out and inaccessible. I could try turning on marshmallow permission manager but I don't think it'll help

Can you start the service or is the button not working? If you can which bit isn't working, the icon head or the actual volume dialog?

Edit: Try granting the permisions manually in settings, it must have something to do with your setup, tested on couple android 6.0 devices and worked fine after you've granted permissions. It needs both "display over other apps" and "do not disturb" permissions to start the service

Oki thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. :angel:

I think its related to device's architecture, app confirmed working on android 6.0 7.0 and 7.1.x arm devices but seems like arm64 devices have an issue with it, had another report of the same issue on op3 (arm64) on 6.0. I will try to get it to work in emulator and send you a debug apk to confirm if it's working soon :)
