Start Android application without launcher

http://stackoverflow.com – How to start an application that has no launcher activity? Story behind the problem: I have an application that is basically a BroadcastReceiver that waits for a couple system intents like BOOT_COMPLETED. The problem is that as my application has no Activity, it doesn't get started and so it receives no intent. Android 3.1 release notes mention that intent options can be overridden to start up applications but I assume it requires another active application to do so. P.S. Write all the ways you know. ADB commands as well. (HowTos)
