ACTION_PRE_BOOT_COMPLETED is published after every system update and this information is available in /data/system/called_pre_boots.dat. However, in Nougat this file is removed.

Question: Is this file moved to some other place? or renamed?

Why we need this: We are executing our code after every system update and relying upon PRE_BOOT_COMPLETE broadcast which happens only after system update. In order to test this code, we delete 'called_pre_boots.dat' file and simulate system update which in turn publish PRE_BOOT_COMPLETE broadcast. After Nougat release, we are unable to test our code.
