It seems as though Google killed Miracast compatibility now that Chromecast does screen mirroring. If you are like me and have one of each devices, you still may want to mirror to a Miracast device.

Required: Root

Navigate with a root explorer to your build.prop file located at /system/build.prop

Add the following line to the file:
Code:
persist.debug.wfd.enable=1
Save your build.prop file and reboot.

You should now see Settings > Display > Cast Screen > Menu > Enable Wireless Display

You should be good to go

I did the buildprop edit. Phone connects to TV but the sound is from the phone. Anyone else have this? Thanks

That's actually kind of cool. That would solve my late night movie watching where I want to watch on the big screen but have to turn the volume low. Is the audio synced at least?

The problem I Post d about sound only coming from the phone was because of viper android sound mod. I deleted that as it also made my headphone jack inoperable unless I had a 3.5mm jack with a mic plug.

Yes, It work with Moto g lollipop 5.1 Gpe and Ezcast dongle. But the video lags a lot with MX player... And there after the all mirroring lags...
Any settings need to be twisted...

I added this initially when I couldn't get my EzCast working however, I don't seem to need it now. I can full screen cast normally on 5.1, even though performance is poor
