I got a system update this morning on my Samsung Galaxy tab pro 8.4 and I have not experienced a crash using Chromecast, and I've been trying to get it to crash by pulling down the status bar. My Tab is stock.

Are you using the Mirror cast enabler? And it wasn't the 5.0 update right?

Well it is because LG and Samsung modify their status bar to include volume sliders, even if you disable the sliders the code still exists and this clashes with the way casting apps operate.

So for the fix, I asked my good friend @HomerSp to take a look at this error for me, now he doesn't have an LG G3 and this didn't benefit him at all, but he did it to help me, and for the fun of it, so all thanks should be directed to him.

He has built us an xposed module that stops the crash, as far as my testing has gone it seems to be working fine now.

The APK is attached.

Homer tells me he doesn't have paypal at the moment so don't worry about donating, if you really feel compelled to then please donate to charity, or give it to me and I will ensure that it ends up with either Homersp or a charity.

Are you a samsung user that found this page?
This module might fix your errors too, its worth a try it can't cause any harm as you can simply deactivate it if it doesn't work, or gives you different errors.


THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! IT SOLVED THE ISSUE ON MY NOTE PRO, AND I'M SO HAPPY!

Sorry for the yelling, just so excited to use Chromecast again!

Today's update to the Chromecast app fixed the System.ui crash. Along with being able to cast from all devices. And not needing to be on the same Wifi network to be able to cast. Also no longer need the Chromecast app to cast. Can now cast directly from chromecast apps. (YouTube, Netflix...) I've tested it on my Samsung Galaxy tab 4 8.0 and all works well. Still thanks to @Lennyuk and @HomerSp for the original fix, as this was the answer to all my Chromecast problems.

Update - system.ui is crashing again 😠

Wow thanks for this! It worked like a charm on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 (NF9 firmware).

Is there a way to apply the changes without Xposed? I'm rooted but don't want Xposed on my system, would prefer to manually edit/flash any system files that need changing.

Which firmware version are you on? still no crashes? I'm using a Modified Stock ROM xKat 6.0 (based on XXUCNJ1 ) and it still crashes when using with chromecast...
