Smartphone screen on Anddroid Auto HU car screen
For root devices only!








Application features:
- The main reason for creating this application is working with Android 9 Pie
1. Сompletely new application combining AAMirror & AAStream features.
2. Additional functions: clock, dimming, selection of resolutions, etc.
3. Ability to choose the automatic launch of any application at A2M startup.
4. Floating button to control the application from the HU screen.
5. Ability to reset if incorrect output and resolution distortion.
6. Many other chips...

Installation and setup:
1. Install Screen2Auto
2. Enable developper settings in Android Auto and enable Unkown sources in developper settings.
1. Launch on the Android Auto mobile device
2. Open the menu, tap the tab "About Android Auto"
3. In the menu that opens, tap on the gear (settings). Then we crawl to the very bottom of the menu that opens: "Version 4.5. *** - release".
4. 10 times tap on the display of the version of Android Auto, a window will appear where we must agree with what we are doing. Click "Yes."
5. Go to the menu (tap "three points") and select the tab "For Developers" that appears in the menu
6. In the last line, put a checkmark "Unknown sources" or use other settings of the developer's menu.
3. Install Penotype Patcher, use it and patch Screen2Auto.
Attention! In 2.+ versions phenotype patcher is built into app menu. Therefore, there is no need to install and use it. Use button "S2A Unlock" and follow directions.
1. Launch Phenotype Patcher. Click the menu (three dots) in the upper right corner and select the Apps List tab.
2. Put daws on third-party applications (Screen2Auto, Fermata, Car Stream, ect). Others do not touch.
3. Return to the main menu and press the PATCH button.
4. Reboot the device (you can use the button from the application menu).
5. Phenotype patcher can be removed.
4. Launch the application and perform the initial setup of permission recovery. Click on the button and save them.
5. Make the necessary settings as desired.
Warning:
If, after turning off the smartphone or exiting AA (turned off the car, closed the emulator, removed the USB), the resolution of the smartphone did not return to its original state (the recovery settings, failure, smartphone features, etc. were set incorrectly, etc.), you need go to Settings → Reset settings and select the WM SIZE RESET option. Resolution will be restored to factory.

Don't forget to use the button (if you want course):


Warning! New version of the application released!
Thanks to everyone who offered delicious coffee!

Great features. Thanks for the work. Do you have a github link?

BTW, What is "AAMM"? Is that a separate app? Thanks.
Never mind I just found out your project previously named as Android Auto Mirror Mod(AAMM).

AAMM and S2A are different applications. For example, AAMM doesn't work on Android 9.

I see. But in your post you mentioned

Permission will be restored to factory.

Do you mean we should install AAMM and S2A both?

Such a bug happens on some models of smartphones (Samsung) that do not support non-standard resolutions. To do this, a reset function was introduced.

Sorry it was a mistake (S2A settings)
I think that S2A will combine all the functions (AAM, AAM +, AAMM and AAStream). This is the main idea.

Replace AAMM by Screen2Auto, they are quite similar, Screen2auto can be considered as an "upgraded" version of AAMM

WM SIZE RESET : it reset the screen resolution to default settings
WM DENSITY RESET : it reset the DPI to default settings

I'm sorry this is my mistake. I transferred this phrase from the manual to another AAMM application. Now I fixed.

No, these are just settings

root your phone
download and install screen2auto
use phenothypepatcher to patch screen2auto
reboot
enable developper settings in android auto and enable Unkown sources
then you'll be able to mirror your phone screen on your Head Unit
