Requires root!Reboot your phone in a given interval and start an application

Reboot your phone in a given interval on a specific time and start a specific application after reboot. The idea is to restart Android and an application periodically to clean up cache and memory leaks if the application has to run over a long time.

And if you don’t need to restart an application, still this can help to close memory leaks. No background services - reboot is scheduled by system AlarmManager. Before reboot is applied, all apps get a shutdown call to save there data. This helps to prevent data loss!

Configuration allows

  • selection of reboot interval from every day to every 30 days
  • selection of reboot time from midnight to 11pm
  • selection between hard reboot (complete restart) or soft/hot reboot (only restart apps)
  • selection if you want to start an app automatically after reboot
  • selection of any app to be started automatically after reboot

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.

Download F-Droid
  • Version 3.0 (3) - Added on 2015-04-04

    Permissions
    • run at startup
      Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
    • close other apps
      Allows the app to end background processes of other apps. This may cause other apps to stop running.
