Moderator’s note: This question was raised as part of troubleshooting a false SIM card notification in another thread. It has been branched to a new discussion so that it can receive the attention it deserves without diverting the focus in the original thread.
I just rebooted to Safe Mode (got SIM error) to see what Bluetooth apps were still launching in Safe Mode (checking from Apps->Running).
Of those that are still running that are actively using Bluetooth:
- Mi Fit (Offiical app for the Mi Band)
- Mi Band Tools (Gut feeling is it might be this one.)
- Tasker (Doubt this one; I have no Tasker scripts that are using Bluetooth)
QUESTION: Why are these apps booting on startup in Safe Mode? Safe Mode shouldn’t allow any installed apps to launch, only system apps. (It’s the whole point of Safe Mode!) I’ve searched on Google and I can’t find any reports of this. I’m not rooted, and I don’t have any sideloaded apps. (Moto X1, Lollipop, RW 2.0.)
