Hi Andrey. I use Android 12 , Android Auto v6.9.613744. One day I got a notification from Android Auto : "You must update the app to use it." When i plug the phone into charge so Android auto updates itself even though auto update is turned off. What should I do ? When i downgrade again i can use Fermata Auto but when i plug it in again it updates again. Thanks in advance for your help. ( In higher versions, Fermata Auto appears on the screen but does not open at all. )

Sorry, but I don't have a solution. This issue is discussed here - https://github.com/AndreyPavlenko/Fermata/discussions/121

Today I got AA update 7.1.614594.
Why I am not getting 7.2? Should I download from apkmirror and install manually?

Video resolution button not pressed on youtube. It automatically selects the resolution. This problem on the car screen. There is no problem on the phone.

Thanks it works now!
But I have another problem. My car screen is not Touchscreen, so I see only the first 6 channels in my list. When I scroll down to the other channels the cursor bounces to the "taskbar" of the app, where I can stop the playback.
Is there any chance that the cursor goes to the other channels when I scroll down?
Unfortunately, there is no solution at the moment. The only workaround is to use phone.
Hello. Has it been possible to do anything to make the Mmi control work without touching with arrows or with a touch pad?

I can never make Fermata 1.8.11 to work. It always says "Fermata Control seems not to be working"

Are there any clear instructions how to install?

- Should I install both Fermata and Fermata Control, both by KingInstaller, or how?

- Should I patch both of them in AA AIO Tweaker, or only Fermata or how?

For the matter of fact Fermata 1.8.10 (it came without that Fermata Control - whatever that Control is) worked seamlessly!

    Sounds really nice!
    Let us know in a couple of days again, please. I still have no time to check myself these days...
    Thank you again.

    It's been a couple days and seems that changing permissions/ownership for /phenotype/shared directory is sufficient, everything still working fine (in my case it is basically Fermata and the coolwalk interface).

    Hope it keeps working on future releases, but for now I'll stick with this one 😊

    So see my post above (recently edited and extended), check the content from Terminal, use the other file explorer, etc - read through and do as suggested

    And usually you need root and root grant to read /data

    Starting from A9, A10 and/or A11 there were some changes (it has been long ago, I don't remember details and btw I always update), I know that I had to update my MiXPlorer to read /data/data.

    Fermata stop working on 7.0 too were I use few day ago. I think Google blacklisted it, maybe try to rename package name can be a workaround
    Seems like that :( Package renaming works, but I don't think it's a good solution. Google has many ways to block any app.

    Unfortunately, for both situations (checked or not) netflix gives only sound no picture 😔
    I'll update webkit in the next version. Perhaps, it will help.
