It is a bug, and has nothing to do with your system.
The first 2014 Android update to Tiny Death Star introduced a myriad of problems and bugs, including, but not limited to:
- defaulting all custom settings.
- refusing to set any custom settings; therefore:
- asking you to set notifications every application start
- asking your to connect to Facebook every application start
- forcing you into perpetual tutorial mode; therefore:
- locking you out of completing Imperial Tasks
- locking you out of Salvage Droid missions
- not resolving the "no Retail Value greater than 8 on Android" bug.
As of the time of this answer posting, there has not been an update to resolve these issues.
When I asked Disney Mobile Support (firstname.lastname@example.org) about this issue they responded in late March with the following email:
The developers are aware of the issue and a solution is being looked into. In the meantime, to help us with the investigation, please include the following details in your reply:
