Something a bit like Windows Task Manager, that logs?


Aug 12, 2021
Hey guys

I've a Mi Box 3 Android TV Box and I want to use adb to try and disable the system update routine.

It's currently at Android 8 and I need it to stay that way, but every time I connect to the internet it automatically tries to update.

I thought about trying to use a network monitor to see which sites it connects to and block those on my router, but it jumps in so quick with the android update that I cannot risk it, so disabling the update routine I'm hoping might be a solution.

I've tried some activity loggers but they don't show it.

Wondered if anyone out there knew of an app that might be a bit like Windows task manager, but can write to a log file all the programs that open and close etc.

Grateful for any advice.
