I’m no Android expert by any means but all I can say is that certain apps show requesting autostart permission while others don’t inside the Android app settings. It’s the case on both of my devices, one is running Android 5.1.1 (will be upgraded in the next few hours) and the other is on 7.1.2…
On the Android 5.1.1. I also have a pretty old app called Autostarts, which not only lists the apps being started by default on boot, but also all the apps which get triggered when certain aspects of the device change like Wifi getting enabled & disabled, headphones being plugged, etc… It’s really suprising which apps by default get notified by pretty much anything that’s happening on the OS. With that mentioned app Autostarts the root user can disabled that behaviour per app per status change. All I can say is that while many appear there which you’d think have no business being there DAVx5 is appearing in none of those categories which per se is very good unless it hinders DAVx5 from funtioning properly.
If anyone wonders the Autostart app is this:
DAVdroid crashes when using wrong values in the SIP address field
DAVdroid crashes when using wrong values in the SIP address field in the contacts app.
Steps to reproduce:
- Edit a contact
- Add “internet call” field
- enter “Skype: blahblah” as value
- Force a sync
DAVdroid crashes unexpectedly.
For Skype please use the appropriate field for “Instant messenger” or “Chat”. There is a label named Skype there.
