Maybe a stupid question, but does this also work with MicroG instead of Google Play Services? I could not find any mention of it in this thread.

I am running LOS18.1 with MicroG and would like to use Screen2Auto. I have tried different combinations of AA and MicroG versions but none of the tweaks work. Any insight on that matter?
I would be very interested to know if you've managed to make it work

No, nothing worked so far. I guess we would need help from a developer.

Found this thread and since you are already running a ROM with micro g i thought you might try this( if you havent already) and see if this solves the problem for you. Cheers!

Yeah, I have seen that thread, too. Unfortunately I get the same problems as @hagekic548.
With the old AA versions (6.3 and older) Screen2Auto is selectable in the launcher, but I get error messages about outdated framework services and when I connect it to my car head unit I only get the "error 8" message and nothing works.
With newer versions I can get AA working in my car, but Screen2Auto does not appear in the laucher.

I have tried a lot of different configurations and tools (and deleted some app data while tinkering once). So far nothing was successful to get 3rd party apps working.

I guess it should be easier to make the necessary modifications for MicroG ROMs as google does not have as much control over the phone as it would with Gapps.
Unfortunately I don't have the programming skills to do it and I have not found anyone who has done it so far.

Does the force widescreen fix the issue with cars with large screens? I have a 2022 tucson with 10.25" screen and android auto is not fullscreen (it takes around two thirds of the screen), unlike apple carplay sadly.

That's what it is for. Only it doesn't persist. I have to wipe data from AA and restore a swift backup for it (or manually set it up again) after some time before it works again.

You shouldn't have select them in first place.. It won't be seen in android auto, if they aren't compatible for android auto..

Who has the brilliant solution for disappearing of the third party apps of Android Auto?? Every day again I have to clear AA cache , then delete this and re- install AA in order that the third party apps appear in AA again. This is frustrating. Who has the brilliant solution??

Downgrading to 7.2 doesn't work, just shows no new messages in all 3rd party apps. Downgraded to anything lower than AA 7 and its a force upgrade....

hello
To solve the problem in addition to the firwall, I deactivated "Google Play Store" (after a clear cache) and reinstalled Android Auto 7.3.6 and since no more problem of update.

Ahh ok, so

1. Uninstall AA 7.x
2. Clear cache & deactivate Google Play store
3. Put up fire wall on Android? blocking AA?
4. Re install AA 7.x and AAEASE/AAAD then apps?

If deactivating or freezing play store yhrn how can we update store apps or install any app? I tried that one but as soon I enable google play store for a sec all third party apps disappear from AA Desktop

    Meet AA AIO TWEAKER, the new Swiss Army Knife for a less restrictive and more feature-ful Android Auto!

    Screenshot_20201204-143755694.jpg

    How do I use it?
    Allow root access, choose what you want, reboot, and then forget about it :)

    How does it work?

    This app uses SQLite commands to override some flags related to Android Auto into the Google Play Services.

    Google Play Services control a lot of features inside Android Auto. Some of them are core functionality of Android Auto, some of them are upcoming feature that are simply not yet released.

    What this app does is making some SQLite queries in order to alter some features of Android Auto. It contains the trick inside AA Phenotype Patcher to patch custom apps in order to work in AA (and the same script is contained) and with the same principle it unlocks some other things in Android Auto.

    Available commands (as of version 1.5):
    • Patch for custom Android Auto apps
    • Disable speed restrictions while driving (preview of messages will be shown always)
    • Disable six tap limit (the banner asking to pay attention to road will not be shown anymore)
    • Enable Assistant Shortcuts (you can learn more here: https://www.xda-developers.com/andr...llpaper-and-tests-google-assistant-shortcuts/)
    • Enable assistant animation in navbar
    • Disable launch of Navigator app at start
    • Disable red outline on battery icon when Battery Saver is active
    • Enable force Widescreen (or force disable it)
    • Force statusbar to be black opaque
    • Disable battery saver warning
    • Enable MultiDisplay
    • Set notification duration from 0ms to 20 seconds
    • Set media notification duration (on the bar) to up to 15 minutes
    • (BETA) Disable Bluetooth auto connect

    Hopefully more to come :)

    How is this different from AA Phenotype Patcher?
    It just contains more features, the project is actually a fork of AA Phenotype Patcher, and share a lot of core functionality under the hood.

    Can I use this app instead of AA Phenotype Patcher?
    Yes you can, but if you have already patched apps with AA Phenotype Patcher, you can leave it like that and simply apply the other tweaks. This app won't check if the apps are already patched via AA Phenotype Patcher, so you won't have a green check status at the start.

    How is this different from Sensible Android Auto: Xposed?
    This app doesn't need Xposed, which in some cases is one more pain to have. Also, it should survive Android Auto updates (unless the flag are changed) without any user modification.

    Can I use this app instead of Sensible Android Auto: Xposed?
    Yes, you can. The functionaility is the same, the only "advantage" is not having to install Xposed to make it work. This app won't check if you have SAAX installed so you won't have a green check status at the start. If you are familiar with SAAX and you want to keep it, you may not want to disable speed limitation and six tap with this app.

    Can the app be translated in my language?
    Translations are open! If you feel like you may be able to translate the app in your language, join translations on Crowdin so that the app will be translated in your language, or simply wait for someone else that will translate the app.

    • IMPROVED: many of the buttons texts have been re-vised to correctly report the activate/deactivate task that they will execute
    • IMPROVED: the most intense and time consuming tweaks will now display a loading bar that will prevent from a database corruption
    • NEW: the app will now proactively warn the user if no Google accounts were found in the device
    • NEW: music media tabs tweak! Get the new UI for music apps earlier!
    • FIXED: fixed a crash that used to happen while applying the patch for apps
    • IMPROVED: the status of the tweak will now be more realistic, switching to green status when the tweak is succesfully applied
    • IMPROVED: translations have been updated
    • IMPROVED: telemetry tweak has been revisited cleaning up some other analytics/tracing/logging by Google
    • IMPROVED: multi display tweak has been revisited allowing the new mode of cluster display with launcher

    Heya!

    Earlier this week a big update has been released for AA AIO TWEAKER. Version 4.0 introduced the following changes:


    • NEW: Multi Account Mode! Since in the past few weeks it has been discovered that having too many Google Accounts stored in the device, if AA AIO TWEAKER finds a large number of accounts, it will now prompt the user to either choose which accounts the patch should be applied to or use all with an experimental way of applying the tweaks. This should successfully prevent the error "Could not open database".
    • NEW: Update checker! AA AIO TWEAKER will automatically check for updates at start and will prompt the user if a new version of AA AIO TWEAKER is available. Not applicable to older versions.
    • NEW: When copying logs a link will be created to a pastebin which will contain the log. Copying and pasting a very long text is not ideal and having them into pastebin is better for sharing them
    • NEW: Tweak for activating the new day/night toggle
    • NEW: Delete car tweak
    • IMPROVED: UI of splash screen
    • IMPROVED: AAStream will now be displayed on top of the apps list
    • IMPROVED: "Reboot to apply" button will not appear if tweak is not applied successfully
    • FIXED: Telemetry tweak inserting two identical rows
    • NEW: Every tweak that requires a seekbar interaction now has a button to bring back the seekbar to original value
    • FIXED: Potential bug with file management resulting in sqlite3 not properly copied to device
    • FIXED: Visual bug in showing the saved value of Agenda and Notification Duration tweaks
    • FIXED: Status indicator for alphabet jump tweak

    Version 4.0.1 is the latest and it has some bug fixes:


    • FIXED: copy of logs
    • FIXED: list of accounts in the account chooser activity
    • FIXED: potential crashes when showing the reboot button
    • FIXED: experimental mode of multi account will now be applied to day/night switch tweak too
    • IMPROVED: patching mechanism has been revisited further more, hopefully narrowing down database access errors
    • IMPROVED: Welcome screen is now centered and will scroll if needed :)

    As always, download is available on GitHub
