Programming for android: Registering ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED programmatically on newest questions tagged android – Stack Overflow
OK so I have searched and searched, but can’t seem to find a reference that declares that this shouldn’t be possible. Basically what I want to accomplish in my app is to allow the user to register or unregister the broadcast receiver for ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED.
I try registering it using the code below, but no dice. If I add it to the manifest then I can recieve the events, but with no way to turn it off (from what I can tell). Is there no way to register and unregister a receiver for ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED?
IntentFilter bootFilter = new IntentFilter(Intent.ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED); mBootCompleted = new BootBroadcastReceiver(); registerReceiver(mBootCompleted, bootFilter);
