Android 8+ crash at boot_completed RRS feed

  • Question

    I am currently developing an Android application and I have a mysterious problem on Android 8 to 9. When I restart my phone, I receive an alert message to warn me of the failure of the application (mainly by the service started during Boot_Completed), but the services of the application are still functional. By my stack trace, I can say that the problem comes from the broadcast receiver that launches any other service.

    Unfortunately, I was unable to find a fix to that issue.

    Below, you can see my broadcast receiver.

    [BroadcastReceiver( Name = "com.parroinfo.SERVICE_STARTUP", Enabled = true, Exported = true, DirectBootAware = true)]
        [IntentFilter(new[] {Intent.ActionBootCompleted, Intent.ActionLockedBootCompleted}, Priority = (int)IntentFilterPriority.HighPriority)]
        class ServiceStartup : BroadcastReceiver
            public override void OnReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
                 if (AndroidUtils.isVersionBelow(BuildVersionCodes.O))
                            context.StartService(new Intent(context, -type-));
                            context.StartForegroundService(new Intent(context, -type-));

    Below, you can see my declaration on my manifest.

    <receiver android:exported="true" android:name="com.parroinfo.SERVICE_STARTUP">
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED" />

    Below, you can see the stack trace of the problem.
