Start service at boot

HI,

 

i have successfuly ported my android app  and it runs fine on my playbook (updated to the latest release).

 

On the android platform, my app starts at boot by using a BOOT_COMPLETED broadcast receiver.

 

I checked the API Support page and BOOT_COMPLETED is not listed inside the unsopported api permissions list.

 

Any clue to solve the problem ?

 

thanks

If it's not listed then many you need to bring it to thier attention many they don't. Know about. It.

Re: Start service at boot

if in the API Support page not listed then you cannot use this function..

Re: Start service at boot

Hi,

 

I installed Skype (Preview) available from AppWorld.

 

I noticed that it starts when the device boots and it seems the Android version ported to the bb10 platform

 

Could you share information (if possible) on how to implement such a feature ?

 

Thanks

 

Marco

Re: Start service at boot

Hello,

 

Unfortunately, BOOT_COMPLETED is not broadcasted for 3rd party applications. This is listed in the unsupported intents page in our docs:

 

http://developer.blackberry.com/android/apisupport/unsupportedapi_blackberry10_intents.html

 

Thanks,

Matt

Thanks Matt

 

I know that the boot_completed intent is not propagated in bb10.

 

Any trick to achieve the same result ?
