Hi, I'm hoping for some help on what seems an easy task but is driving me nuts! 🤪

I have an android car headunit and I want to kill an app when the screen goes off. 
The headunit has it's own bluetooth app that never works right every time I get back in the car. 
BUT, If I manually force close the app before I get out of the car it starts it correctly every time I get back in
The headunit is Android 7.1.1. and is rooted

So basically this would be the task:
I get out of the car and the screen goes off (unit goes to sleep)
Kill the Bluetooth app (com.szchoiceway.btsuite)

Seems simple but I can't figure it out.

  • Create a profile with the state > Display State > Off condition
  • in the task use the Kill App action and enable the root option
Should do it, I think :)
