Hey Kaluta,

I am using an Australian Exynos S21 Ultra with an Indian 4.0 Beta update on top.

Can confirm that AA works with my Kia Rio 2017. Ok google detection is can be flaky (could be my accent tho).

Haven't seen my phone disconnect so far (I work mostly from home, so further testing needed).

I see google promising fixes for AA every few weeks.

Given that the Beta is running Android 12, I feel AA would be more stable in general. but then again AA is updated over Gplay as well.

I suggest trying the beta and roll back if you have a bad experience.

Long story!

At the time my xsa was not running the latest firmware ( I think the latest firmware is out now). Had to flash an Indian firmware first to be able to flash the beta zip. I chose India as 1) It's one of the only countries part of the beta program 2) They use the exact model as us in India. 3) A lot of devs in India, more XDA support if things go wrong

Working fine for me, even wirelessly with AA in a 2018 Audi A4 and AAWireless box.
Always worked flawlessly, cabled and wireless, Android 11 and now the 12 beta.

I've had issues before with cables and dust in the port, even with my s20 Ultra (nothing to do with this beta) . I usually use 3$ cables (Ugreen or Baseus branded from Aliexpress). But for my car, I use a pricey 20$ Belkin cable. I suggest trying a new cable/Samsung original and maybe uninstalling the app/clearing data + cache...

If your software version ends with AUHD, you flash the firmware (a .bin file) given in this thread.


Use ADB sideload commands to put the update.zip (rename your .bin file first) on to your phone ..
