hi i am making an app to block the camera on android using admin privilages it works perfect on android 7 and below but once you hit oreo it no longer works and cant find anything of help in the docs as i am doing everything right (i think) but when my app launches i get option to enable it takes me to policy page then when i activate it returns me but i dont have privilages. But on older sdk it all works so dies anyone know what changed?

my manifest


xml policy

my MyDevicePolicyReceiver  class



my button in oncreate to launch


it is the security exception that get thrown after i enable admin privilages it like it is not saving but it works on older sdk
