DAVdroid does not request autostart permissions



  • Installed DAVdroid from F-Droid on LineageOS 14.1. When I go to Privacy Guard, there is no entry for Start at Boot, meaning DAVdroid never requested autostart permissions. Even if I disabled Privacy Guard it wouldn't allow autostart as it was never requested.



  • You don't need an explicit autostart. DAVdroid sets a sync interval and is then called by the Android base system at a scheduled time. Then it performs a the synchronization.
