Customize Your Startup with Bootmanager Xposed Module
If you’ve got a lot of apps installed, many of them are probably set to start at boot. However, this may not be optimal if you’d rather have a speedy startup or more free RAM. Luckily there are several tools you can use to attack this problem, and now one leverages the power of XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s fantastic Xposed Framework (thread) to make installation a breeze.
Created by XDA Senior Member defim, BootManager lets you easily customize which apps are allowed to start at boot. To install the application, you simply download the APK from the Xposed repository, from the Xposed app’s repo browser, or Google Play.

And if you’d like to look at the output log file, it’s as simple as viewing /data/xposed/debug.log with a grep for BootManager.
To get your hands on BootManager, head over to the module thread.
