Hi,

Has this been abandoned?  I'm on version 5.12.22 so I assume it didn't make it to live versions?

Is there another way to achieve freezing a task?  I know how to use ADB Wifi.

Thanks!

If you have ADB Wifi:

To disable: pm disable com.package.name
To enable: pm enable com.package.name

That doesn't work.  I assume the package name is what it is called up to but not including the .apk ?

I'd still like to know why freezing didn't get out of  5.9.3.beta.5

Freezing/Unfreezing is now called Enable/Disable App . It's still in the ADB Wifi action :)

Many thanks for replying!  I am trying to freeze Alexa, because it takes up too much battery when I'm not using it.   However, neither

pm disable com.amazon.dee.app_2.2.250163.0

nor 

pm disable com.amazon.dee.app 
 
has any effect whatsoever.

Have I missed something?

Thanks!

Update:

It appears I needed to do pm disable-user to make the icon disappear from the screen and application list after which pm enable-user was ineffective.
However, pm enable restored Alexa to the application drawer, but not the shortcut to the screen!

Is there a way to get the stdout of a command to the screen for debugging purposes?  I cannot find anything by googling.

Thanks!

Hi again.

If you use the helper in the ADB Wifi action (magnifying glass above the Command field) it'll generate the necessary commands for you :)

To get the output check the %aw_output variable after the action is ran.

Hope this helps.

You've been so helpful, one last thing.  I expect you can tell I'm fairly new to this.  How do I check the actual value of   %aw_output   ?  Can I display it somehow?  If you could point me at the relevant docs for that, it would be great!

Thanks very much!

You could use the Text Dialog as the next action in the task for example and use the variable in the Text input :) 

Hope this helps!
