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 (Fig. 1).

Fig. 1 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. Uninstalling it (Fig. 2) fixes the problem with a phone randomly killing background applications and not starting them on boot.

If you have changed your mind, you can restore hwaps application by issuing the following command:

adb shell pm install-existing --user 0 com.huawei.android.hwaps

Spaudžiame enter ir nustatymai grįžo:

Vėl keičiame DNS nustatymus ant savojo Huawei B525

Huawei B525 4G router: new firmware – no more changing DNS server manually?

Recently I upgraded my Huawei B525s-23a 4G router’s firmware (new software version, Web UI version only to find out the trick to change DNS servers has stopped working:

No more DNS settings for you

After a brief inspection with browser’s developer console, worry not, DNS settings are still here (it’s Huawei, so they are hidden of course); to show the settings navigate to Router -> DHCP, press F12 and enter this into developer’s console:


Press enter, and the settings are back:

Change DNS server on your Huawei B525 again!
