kill background running applications in android programmatically

I am getting List of running background applications. To kill those applications by using:

List<RunningAppProcessInfo> listprocInfos =actvityManager.getRunningAppProcesses(); if(RunningAppProcessInfo procInfos : listprocInfos ) { activityManager.killBackgroundProcesses(procInfos.processName); // or activityManager.restartPackage(procInfos.processName); }

But It is not working please help me.

-------------Problems Reply------------

You must have special permissions to kill other applications programmatic.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.KILL_BACKGROUND_PROCESSES" />

Also there is no grantee this will kill the process. If the device is rooted try finding the PID of the process and kill it via command.
