An issue many may run into when installing a custom ROM and restoring their apps with Titanium Backup may be broken push notifications. Why is this and how can you fix it?
Android 8.0 includes a useful feature with it which shows you the information about the background apps as persistent notification. These are the apps running in the background on your device.
