Restart service if start_sticky on Xiaomi

Service does not restart after a user kill a application on Xiaomi devices even we use

@Override
public int onStartCommand(Intent intent, int flags, int startId) {
    return START_STICKY;
}

Xiaomi devices have extra permissions called “auto start” that allows services be restarted automatically after they were killed.

I did not find how to check autostart permissions programmatically.

But we can redirect a user to permission screen by this code

<br><br>
String manufacturer = "xiaomi";<br><br>
if (manufacturer.equalsIgnoreCase(android.os.Build.MANUFACTURER)) {<br><br>
    //this will open auto start screen where user can enable permission for your app<br><br>
    Intent intent1 = new Intent();<br><br>
    intent1.setComponent(new ComponentName("com.miui.securitycenter", "com.miui.permcenter.autostart.AutoStartManagementActivity"));<br><br>
    startActivity(intent1);<br><br>
}<br><br>

Also for Huawei:

<br><br>
if("huawei".equalsIgnoreCase(android.os.Build.MANUFACTURER) && !sp.getBoolean("protected",false)) {<br><br>
        AlertDialog.Builder builder  = new AlertDialog.Builder(this);<br><br>
        builder.setTitle(R.string.huawei_headline).setMessage(R.string.huawei_text)<br><br>
                .setPositiveButton(R.string.go_to_protected, new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {<br><br>
                    @Override<br><br>
                    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialogInterface, int i) {<br><br>
                        Intent intent = new Intent();<br><br>
                        intent.setComponent(new ComponentName("com.huawei.systemmanager", "com.huawei.systemmanager.optimize.process.ProtectActivity"));<br><br>
                        startActivity(intent);<br><br>
                        sp.edit().putBoolean("protected",true).commit();<br><br>
                    }<br><br>
                }).create().show();<br><br>
    }<br><br>
