I'm looking to start a service when my device boots up on Android but I can't seem to get it to work. Here's the code I'm working with:
<receiverandroid:name=".StartServiceAtBootReceiver"android:enabled="true"android:exported="false"android:label="StartServiceAtBootReceiver"><intent-filter><actionandroid:name="android.intent.action._BOOT_COMPLETED"/></intent-filter></receiver><serviceandroid:name="com.test.RunService"android:enabled="true"/>
And this is the second part: public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) { if ("android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED".equals(intent.getAction())) { Intent serviceLauncher = new Intent(context, RunService.class); context.startService(serviceLauncher); Log.v("TEST", "Service loaded at start"); } } Is there something I'm missing?
