Thanks monu...

i already referred that...

but my problem is that i want to start service at Boot up...

here's the code m working...



and here's the LocalService.java




and AndroidManifest.xml



i don't want anything on foreground... the service should be running at background...

but with this code i get "The process stopped unexpectedly" error as i launch the emulator...


can you please tell me what's wrong with this code...

Thank you so much
