Hello,
I bought a new indash for my truck the Sony xav-601bt and it supports mirrorlink technology for gs3. Pretty much the unit becomes an extension of your phone all the way down to playing angry birds on it if you wanted to. However I cannot connect it and after searching and speaking to numerous Sony tech supports that had no freakin clue of what to do I found that Samsung neeeds to release the app for it to be compatible. If anyone has it or runs into it I would appreciate it if you posted it here. Its supposed to be released on 8/29 from a rumor I read. It goes by the name Samsung drive-link I believe. Any help is much appreciated

I have the same problem - I installed a xav601-bt in my car wanting to use mirror link. Google maps is so much better than the $2000 nav unit in our brand new Honda Odyssey ... but I digress. I saw that Sony-asia has released a firmware update for the unit. Took my chances and installed it (NOTE THIS: had to take off the faceplate and press reset to get it out of the reboot loop) installed fine but neither the "mirror link" nor "telenav" app work. Properly. USB device not recognized. I understand I need an app for the phone. Mirror link or drive link. This will be perfect if they get it to work - I want my Google nav to display on my head unit. Controlling it would be bonus. C'mon Samsung, get it going!

One nice thing I did find though if you pair your phone with bluetooth then click on Bluetooth settings for sony automotive you can enable not only calls but audio and that way you can still listen to everything that goes on in your phone such as spoken turn by turn navigation, music, YouTube, Netflix,etc. Still can't wait for official rollout though. I wonder how they will get around the "USB device not supported" error message when plugging in via USB

I have a Galaxy S2, and just bought a XAV-701BT. The guy at the store said that I would be able to use mirror link with my GS2 when the app was released at the end of this month, but from what I am reading it looks like it will only work on the GS3.

Does anyone know if I will be able to use mirror link on the GS2?

I have already installed the new firmare on the XAV-701BT

If anything i'm sure the APK will be floating around the web somewhere.

I found this video on YouTube of someone running mirrorlink on a galaxy s2 and when they ran it, this app called tmserverapp seemed to run. I found the apk file I will try and play with it later anyways here's the video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsT1l8bLOfU&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Here's the apk file needed at http://d-h.st/GrA
I think it needs to be moved into the /system/app folder and set the permissions to rw-r-r

I tried to add the apk file with no results. Also when i try to install the app I get this error "there is a problem parsing the package". Maybe someone can figure a way to install it

Maybe because you have the international version. On the us Verizon version it is not there. Either way if you already have it, there must be something else missing then

It seems you need a UK account to download the app. I will try to make a fake one later to try and download it.

Edit: I made a UK account but I still can't download any apps when I try to log in with the Samsung app it says account does not match country. I tried to change the time zone in Settings to UK and that didn't work. If we could get someone from the UK to download the app and upload it for us it would be great

    I'm on it.

    I've done some 6 or so hours of decrypting the code in this app and have managed some simple customization's but I have not yet found the piece that automatically switches back to the DriveLink app when you manage to get out of it into the android operating system. I'm thinking it could be part of the mirrorlink apk that comes preinstalled on the phone. I haven't had the chance to decompile it and look through it yet but I will try to do it tomorrow if someone can post a link to it or PM me, if not I'll just yank it off my phone. I own both a GS3 and the 601bt so I'd like to get this working as well. I'll try to keep you guys updated but my work on this will be limited to a few hours a day since my wife and I just had our first baby.

    sooooo

    anyone tried deodexing stock rom??

    Ok I finally got this working the other day on a stock ROM without having to deodex. I used the following script to Odex the TMServerApp.apk to create a TMServerApp.odex for my stock ROM :

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1879128&highlight=denied

    As there is a problem running some of the commands in the auto script I ran them manually until I found this link which was hidden in the original post :

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=31874711&postcount=57

    It will require purchasing Chainfire's adbd Insecure v1.30 app as the standard Jelly Bean adbd doesn't allow most of the commands to be run in the Auto Odex script due to more security. Alternatively run the steps in the script manually like I did before I spotted the Chainfire modded adbd.


    So now I have a fully odex'd version of the TMServerApp.apk installed and it now works with my Alpine ICS-X8 :)


    I will be sending my donation shortly AuRoN89. Thanks for all your hard work on this.

    j0ep0 and I are going to collaborate and see if we can get this app tweaked the way we think it was intended to be run. I've setup a Github and plan on trying to convert the Smali files into a jar that can be compiled and easily changed. If anyone would like to contribute let be know in a PM. If you want a link the the github I'll post it up as well once we get the two files out there and are working.
