Kill APP command does not work under 2.2. Any tasker alternatives?
what app do you need to kill with tasker? you can just set it go to the home screen
Slacker would be one example. Going to the home screen when I un-dock doesn't stop the music.
oh good point. i know theres no way to interact with apps other than opening and killing and now 2.2 stopped that. maybe see if they make a plugin for slacker (locale plugins also work)
Found how to make it work
1. get rooted
2. install locale execute plugin
3. install busybox
Then create an local plugin execute task that runs @! killall -q process-name
Just put the name of the process you want to kill where "process-name" is
Its a pain to setup, but not bad after you do the first one. Works great
So this "locale execute plugin" works with tasker or you're using locale?
Sorry. Yes the plugin works with tasker.
EDIT: found a small problem it appears it only removes a background app. Will not kill service or foreground app even running as super user
I understand this is blocked by design, but there are legit uses for automation.
There has to be a way.
I am new to android. Does anyone know any commands to change a process to run as background?
That would solve it, I believe
I found a nice solution for killing pandora on Android 2.2.
This doesn't technically kill the whole app, but it kills enough of it that the next time you start pandora it will auto play again. It does the job for me anyway.
the 2.2 fix
I use my fix listed above in the following post. Download the profile from my site if you want to see it working.

I am having trouble getting the Locale execute program to launch without Locale installed. How did you work around this?
Did you try the method I listed above? It works great for me, and doesn't require root or a locale plugin.
