Stop Huawei P Smart 2019 from killing my apps

If you have Huawei P Smart mobile phone, you may have noticed its annoying tendency to kill third party background applications randomly, even those set to be managed manually:

Settings -> Battery -> App launch

The auto-launch setting also does nothing (at least on my phone using excellent Blokada and Auto Auto-Rotate applications).

To fix this you’ll need to follow the steps outlined here. I didn’t have PowerGenie app they mention installed, but I did have something called hwaps, and uninstalling it fixed my problem with a phone randomly killing background applications and not starting them on boot.

Uninstalling hwaps using adb

You can restore deleted application by issuing the following command: adb shell pm install-existing –user 0 com.huawei.android.hwaps
