Hi chaps/chapesses

Quick question that someone can hopefully help answer..

Chromecast screen mirroring on my S2. I currently have Jellysnap rom on it due to the fact that the utter! app doesn't work properly with my Bluetooth car adaptor (Avantalk) when using Cyanogenmod 11 Kitkat (I really like it because of its offline capabilities as I am on PAYG with no mobile data) .

I was just wondering if anyone has had any success screen mirroring their S2 to their Chromecast with any kitkat rom. I don't really want to start over again installing kitkat if at the end of it, the screen mirroring doesn't work so I was just wondering if anyone out there in xda land had already tried it?

Ive searched the forums and cant see this question relating to the S2 with a kitkat rom but can see others have asked the same about other devices...
If no one has tried it, I might just bite the bullet and report back on any success/failure...

Hey y'all,
Let me push this topic a little bit. Since it was opened a lot has happened in that area. After r3pwn has closed his thread, because google has implemented native mirroring support into the chromecast app for Kitkat devices, the platform for discussion was closed as well.
I'm facing similar issues as the topic opener. I'm using my i9100 with cm11 m12, latest chromecast app, which works fine, e.g. YouTube. However, once I start screen cast, the TV screen becomes black. After each few seconds the app tells me, that the cast connection was disconnected and the chrome standard screen is shown on TV. After several trys the screen stays black. Does anyone have an idea how to make this work.? According to several posts it should be possible...
