An effective AutoStart App
Hello all, I am looking for a good AutoStart app so that I can somewhat control what automatically starts when the phone reboots &/or powers on. I am working w/the Epic 4g and have had the problem of the Media Hub & DRM auto starting (restarting) after a phone call and/or fast reboot.
Can anyone recommend an app (paid or free)? I tried AutoStart Killer (by Easyfilter) but deleted it because I couldn't control the DRM or MediaHub Apps on reboot.
Thans for your help.

So far as I know (which admittedly isn't a whole lot when it comes to Android), you need to be rooted to have any meaningful control over which apps start or don't. I have a DroidX and that is what I had to do to get that control. Of course, HTC may/probably is much different.
Anyway, try AutoStarts from the Market. It is rated as very good... but you have to be rooted to control what starts or doesn't. I also don't have a REALLY good idea about how it works and I'm playing with it to get it to work. Then again, I don't know that ANY of these "auto start" control apps are going to be easy to use since they are starting to get into the guts of the OS...
I just wish that the AutoStarts dev would start a support thread here.
However, I WOULD suggest you be careful as keeping some apps from starting can have serious bad ju-ju effects on how your phone operates.

Ya just gotta LOVE how Android lets you customize your devices how YOU want them!
