How to exit from your app, or kill it

November 29th, 2010 by Davmont Leave a reply »

Get an Activity Manager, and then ask for a package restart:

ActivityManager m_activityManager = (ActivityManager) getSystemService(Activity.ACTIVITY_SERVICE);
m_activityManager.restartPackage(PACKAGE_NAME);

And that’s it, it just works.

I know its not recommended, and that it’s against activities lifecycle, but sometimes it is necessary for your app.

Have fun!
