Can somebody explain me the logic behind how Instagram can still be the top app in my wakelook detector app even when it is disabled with Package disabler??:O

  • I assume there's some other app calling to it – which is still possible even when disabled (intents can be addressed directly; the app then acts like a "library" and offers the addressed functionality). I'd try checking with logcat whether there's an indicator on who calls it, see our logging tag-wiki.

  • Alright nice! I looked into the "logcat" thing and found a way to do it just using ADB. Basically: ADB shell: logcat. Now... The logcat outputs a ****load of text, is there any good ways or tools to filter it? Kind of to spot wakelocks and such? I guess ctrl+f would be good, but anything better? Aug 13 '17 at 0:56
  • On Linux, I just pipe things to grep (eg. adb logcat -v time | grep -i instagram). Be welcome to check with my list of ADB helpers to run on your PC. If you're on Windows, DroidExplorer might be a good choice. Also note the specific logcat helpers there.

  • I would imagine what describe for linux, would almost be the same as ctrl+f in a word document on windows for me :) And thanks for the link, but I really do no know much about coding, and many of the tools looks quite complicated :O Aug 13 '17 at 13:57
