Question [Q] Screen mirroring on Sony TV

Hello Everyone,

I am having some trouble getting my rooted, stock, sprint S4 to connect via miracast to my miracast enabled Sony KDL 65w850a TV.

I have tried to research this but everything on the forums, but everything that I am finding states it is for people with non stock roms/ kernals and/ or using dongles.

I was able to get my S4 to connect to my TV and share video via wifi direct, however, I can not complete a connection via miracast (both devices see eachother, however the miracast connection fails).

My S4 is:

rooted
stock rom
stock kernal
Android 4.3
Kernal ver 3.4.0-1927016
Knox has not been tripped

I did see here that hahansen3 suggested editing /system/etc/WFDConfig.Xml, to make the following change: <HDCPValid>0</HDCPValid>

The problem with this is that, I think this is for a Samsung TV.

Can anyone help me out with this, or does anyone have any ideas?

Would updating my S4 as shown here to 4.4.2 NAE help?

Thank you for taking the time to look and especially if you can help!

-T

It's because you are rooted. Then it won't work. Atleast that is the case for our S4. You have to apply a patch to make it work, but that patch is not for you s4.
Current:

Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505 | WanamLite v3.0

Retired:

Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 : AOKP 4.2.1
HTC Touch Pro2 | ROM: Valkyrie 6.5.23115TR2.5
HTC HD2 | DarkStone1337 [FroyoStone Sense - V3.2]
HTC Desire : Oxygen v2.1.3

Thank you Lennyz1988!

-So if I unroot and go fully stock, screan mirroring from my sprint S4 will work with my Sony TV via mirracast?

-If I do not want to unroot, will this( click me) not work?

I don't know. I don't have a Sony tv.

Just test if it works without root. You can always root again.
