<string name="autostarts_prohibited">Has Prohibited</string>

Hi,
I followed the instructions to the letter.
I got to compiling and decompiling, then went to public.xml and against "Manage_autostarts", the value was "0x7f04008b" in my case,
however, when i went to smali/com/android/settings there was no folder named "autostarts\LewaManageAu tostarts.smali"

What to do about that?

    Xperia SL
    Existenz rom(4.1.2)

    Something in the smali folder is causing the error...

    I had this error too. "Error for input '.parameter': Invalid directive" happens because the smali files from the rar was creating using old tools and you're trying to compile using 2.x version. Download baksmali-1.4.2.jar and smali-1.4.2.jar and try with them. You can decompile with old tools and compile again with new tools and try now, or you can use these I've compiled like I said:

    Smali files for 2.x.x

    But the problem is that the references from 18 and 21 points aren't correct now but I think they're very close. Best use the last baksmali 2.0.0b9. I hope these can help all of you and improve this very good tutorial because I want this function in my phone :D

    I can compile the Settings file but it doesn't work to me, I'm using a Sony Xperia Z with stock ROM.
    Does not it work with odexes ROMs even decompile .odex file??? :confused:

    Not idea?


    Make sure that there is no space between autostarts and LewaManageAutostarts
    In Settings_header.XML

    Did you see if this is your problem?

    G.M.L.
