Android Nougat 7.0 on Motox Pure 2015 -- rooted

I can't save shortcuts to home-screen anymore. None of the installed browsers save to home-screen. Google maps doesn't save to home-screen.

I just tried to save a directions shortcut from Google maps and it said that the shortcut was saved, but it is not.

Added edit: Here is a log entry while saving the Google maps shortcut:

[10-06 09:18:46.584 1146:1179 W/BroadcastQueue]
Background execution not allowed: receiving Intent { act=com.android.launcher.action.INSTALL_SHORTCUT flg=0x10 (has extras) } to com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox/com.android.launcher3.InstallShortcutReceiver

I'm starting to think this has to do with one of my battery app background restricter apps. I am testing that out now.

  • SOLVED: I allowed com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox to run in the background and that fixed the problem. – ajnabi Oct 6 at 13:32

SOLVED: I allowed com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox to run in the background and that fixed the problem.

In my case the app that was restricting was called BackgroundRestrictor.

I also have both the RootBooster and Hibernation apps running, and they didn't need any adjusting.
