Anthony Prieur (see  here for a project of his) kindly points out that

A change was need to get the AutoStart working on Android 4.x. Android 4.x needs the app to start ASAP so if any delay (like postDelayed with 30s) the app is not lauched/killed. To fix you need an async task starting as quick as possible (in less than 5sec)

Thanks a lot! We'll want to make our autostarter work cross-version.

Anthony also shares this piece of code with us that does the trick for him:

	public void onReceive(final Context context, Intent intent) {
		new AsyncStart(context).execute();
	public class AsyncStart extends AsyncTask<Void, Integer, String> {
	    private Context context;
	    public AsyncStart(Context context) {
	        this.context = context;
	    protected String doInBackground(Void... params) {
	    	while (true) {		
				boolean mounted = installConfig.isInstallPathMounted();
				if(mounted) {
			    	  Intent serviceIntent = new Intent();
				else {
					try {
					} catch (InterruptedException e) {}
	        return null;
