    Hello,
    I'd like, using tasker, to start a Service of the app : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fragments.notch.status_bar

    Can someone help me to configure a task ?

    If I try to creat a Task and call : com.fragments.notch.status_bar.StatusService
    but i get an error : Android denied.

    This is the manifest :

    That's because the service is not exported. Only the app itself can start it.

    Ok,
    there is no way to emulate the boot sequence?
    At boot the service starts without showing any UI.

    Thank you for your tips.
    I solved!
    1. I used apktool to decopile del APP
    2. With notepad I edited the Manifest and simply changed : android:exported="false" to android:exported="true"
    3.
    Then I generated a new APK with apktool
    4. I signed the APK with uber-apk-signer
    5. I installed the new APK just generated

    Now tasker can invoke the service com.fragments.notch.status_bar.StatusService
