Great features. Thanks for the work. Do you have a github link?

BTW, What is "AAMM"? Is that a separate app? Thanks.
Never mind I just found out your project previously named as Android Auto Mirror Mod(AAMM).

AAMM and S2A are different applications. For example, AAMM doesn't work on Android 9.

I see. But in your post you mentioned
Warning:
If, after turning off the smartphone or exiting AA (turned off the car, closed the emulator, removed the USB), the resolution of the smartphone did not return to its original state (the recovery settings, failure, smartphone features, etc. were set incorrectly, etc.), you need to start AAMM, go to Settings → Reset settings and select the WM SIZE RESET option. Permission will be restored to factory.

Do you mean we should install AAMM and S2A both?

I see. But in your post you mentioned
Such a bug happens on some models of smartphones (Samsung) that do not support non-standard resolutions. To do this, a reset function was introduced.
Do you mean we should install AAMM and S2A both?
Sorry it was a mistake (S2A settings)
I think that S2A will combine all the functions (AAM, AAM +, AAMM and AAStream). This is the main idea.

Replace AAMM by Screen2Auto, they are quite similar, Screen2auto can be considered as an "upgraded" version of AAMM

WM SIZE RESET : it reset the screen resolution to default settings
WM DENSITY RESET : it reset the DPI to default settings

No, these are just settings

root your phone
download and install screen2auto
use phenothypepatcher to patch screen2auto
reboot
enable developper settings in android auto and enable Unkown sources
then you'll be able to mirror your phone screen on your Head Unit

Hello.
Maybe you need to set another resolution manually. Netflix may have internal mirror protection. I dont know. I have never used this app.

No there is no mirror protection for netflix, at least it was working with AAM and AA Stream, tried it with Screen2Auto via Android Auto emulator and it works fine

I got "Do not set the recovery options screen". What should I do?

You need to set it up first via the Screen2Auto app on your phon, go to screen restore settings tab and enable "Restore screen on focus lost"

Hello,
thanks for that wonderful app, i love the small back button, better then by AA Mirror.

One quick question:
Is it possible to restet the orientation when i go out of Screen2Auto but not disconnect from car?
Example, i start Screen2Auto then i go to Maps for example, now Screen2Auto is not activ (but not disconnect from car unit), so i want to set the Screenrotation to 0.
Is it possible, or is it only possible when i disconnect from head unit?

Thanks.

No. Screen2Auto screen rotation settings will only reset once you disconnect your phone from the head unit.

If you want to handle many different scenario of screen rotation, I advise you to use Tasker and Rotation Orientation Manager. It's not easy at first but then you can automate a lot of things

    YouTube videos doesn't play in full screen anymore after latest AA update and previous few updates does anyone have a solution for this problem ?
    From Extras reduce the task bar to 0.5, and from s2auto go to screen settings and on screen size choose Automatic fullscreen, need to be rooted.
