I recently updated my SGS20+ to Android 12; Stream2Auto is still present within Android Auto, but it crashes as it starts; I sent a few debug info. Anyone can help?

What about the post #2012, prev page, last week, with the guide for A12, did you read/follow, does it work for you?

No. My phone is not rooted and Screen2Auto DOES crash, it is not simply blocked or something similar.
If that's the only way, I think I have to give up using it.

Even if S2A crashes for an API update in Android 12 / Android Auto 7, I think it should only be fixed to use the new ones.

What does the function audio focus on connect do in the settings of S2A?

I disabled it and until now I did not have the random music pauses I mentioned before.

If I enable Audio focus, then my infotainment Radio mutes immediately when I open S2A

If Audio focus is disabled, then Radio continues to play and mutes only when I e.g open YouTube from S2A and start playing a song/movie

Hence I keep Audio focus disabled

Thanks.
Somehow on my phone this function is buggy. Sometimes it pauses music, sometimes not.
For me it is better to disable this function and use Tasker instead to play/pause music.

I found this tip on fermata auto topic, it was written by Fcartone:

"I found the right version to use to have a normal working android auto with custom app. you need to uninstall android auto update and use version 6.9 but not a random one but the last one 6.9.613744, on my test phone i was on 6.9.613724 and wasn't work say me i need to update but with 6.9.613744 work perfectly for now"

I've tried and it works for me. (Samsung s21, android 12).

I've set up S2A on a rooted phone and it works as it should.

The only thing that bothers me is that when I get an email when I am connected to Android auto, I don't have and I don't hear notification from my email app (AquaMail).

How can I make my notification sound play on the car? I still get sounds and notifications for WhatsApp for instance. But not for AquaMail. What am I missing here?

That is a generel Android Auto bug. Sometimes there are no notification sounds.
You can clear data and cache and hope that it will work next time.

I had the same issues with a lot of apps...

I guess you changed the DPI-value somewhere.
any idea where I might have done that? I have tried everything. I uninstalled screen2auto, femeta and the like. I used root installer trying to uninstall android auto. I have updated to the newest android auto from the playstore and it is still showing spiltscreen. Afraid I will have to have to reset the phone.

    Of course, my problem was how to disable the automatic updates of the Play store, and I found the AuroraStore proposal interesting, but I solved it by disabling the updates directly from the play store.

    Here is my tested "working solution" of ScreenToAuto:
    (I state that I have a Xiaomi MI10T lite with Root)
    AAuto 7.4.620964 (but I think any version could be fine taking into account what is written below)
    Aease 0.4 (although designed for unrooted phones, it did its job with my rooted)
    Screen2Auto 3.6.3

    P.S. about using AA Aio Tweacer .....

    I have not patched s2A with AA Aio Tweacher (not used / not installed);

    -s2A installed via AAEase which evidently reads the "modified" package of s2a
    -I still removed the automatic installation for Google Play updates, so I can determine if and which update to install ...
    and… magically it works !!
    Ok, so I found AAEase v0.4 on inceptive.ru:

    I see/understand now that there is no need to manually download Screen2Auto (also from inceptive.ru) - since AAEase offers by itself to download/install both Screen2Auto and Fermata

    Screenshots attached

    I also installed CarTube by using AAStore:

    Currently I have the latest Android Auto but I have detached AA from Google Play by use of Hide My Apps (HMA, LSPosed module), to prevent further updates:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...te-android-auto-utility.4194239/post-86119983

    Also, to prevent Phenotype changes in background by Android Auto, I executed the shell script aa_block_3rdapp_hack.sh from @sebi3481:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...te-android-auto-utility.4194239/post-86091595

    Everything works fine except a minor issue that apps opened from Screen2Auto do not close on disconnecting from Android Auto (I'm pretty sure that it worked on my older phone) although Close apps when S2A exiting is enabled in S2A

    Thanks a lot for the info!!

    I suppose it is not so easy anymore to root the phone as it was in the past with 1-click, right?:(
    Don't thank him, because it is not true. On my Samsung Note 9 I can use S2A and operate the apps via touch of the car media system without root.

    You need some settings in S2A.
    Go to "Other settings" and enable "Alternative touch" and try the profiles. For me Profile 3 worked best. Also enable "Automatic shutdown of SELinux". Touch will then be usable.

    one instruction that i have never figured out during the install of screen2auto. When setting up permissions it states "And also give permission to capture the screen. Can someone tell me where/how this is done?
    I always send this command using a PC, otherwise the warning will pop up every time you use S2A

    "Disable cast warning"

    Adb shell appops set ru."whatever S2A is renamed" PROJECT_MEDIA allow

    Application features:
    - The main reason for creating this application is working with Android 9 Pie
    1. Сompletely new application combining AAMirror & AAStream features.
    2. Additional functions: clock, dimming, selection of resolutions, etc.
    3. Ability to choose the automatic launch of any application at A2M startup.
    4. Floating button to control the application from the HU screen.
    5. Ability to reset if incorrect output and resolution distortion.
    6. Many other chips...

    Installation and setup:
    1. Download and Install Screen2Auto
    6760829d5c83bfb472ea0a96d8b0efde.png
    2. Enable developper settings in Android Auto and enable Unkown sources in developper settings.
    1. Launch on the Android Auto mobile device
    2. Open the menu, tap the tab "About Android Auto"
    3. In the menu that opens, tap on the gear (settings). Then we crawl to the very bottom of the menu that opens: "Version 4.5. *** - release".
    4. 10 times tap on the display of the version of Android Auto, a window will appear where we must agree with what we are doing. Click "Yes."
    5. Go to the menu (tap "three points") and select the tab "For Developers" that appears in the menu
    6. In the last line, put a checkmark "Unknown sources" or use other settings of the developer's menu.
    3. Use the AA AIO TWEAKER from @shmykelsa for activation third-party applications.
    4. Launch the application and perform the initial setup of permission recovery. Click on the button and save them.

    5. Make the necessary settings as desired.
    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 go to Settings → Reset settings and select the WM SIZE RESET option. Resolution will be restored to factory.

    The only way (similar method from the Fermata player thread) I found to overcome the problem for now is:
    - Use Android Auto version 7.0.614104 (tried v7.1.614554, it does not work in any way).
    - Rename the Screen2Auto app v3.6.2 (change the ru.inceptive.screentwoauto name) with Lucky Patcher or any other rename apk app.
    - Uninstall the original Screen2Auto and install the renamed one.
    - Enable Unknown Sources on AA and patch/add the newly renamed app to AA with AA IO Tweaker as you normally would.

    I tried turning off/on the car, disconnected and rebooted the phone, Screen2Auto hasn't disappeared yet.

    hello how do you rename the apk with lucky patcher ... i'm interested thank you
    Lucky Patcher actually calls it "Cloning".
    There are also other apps like ApkRenamer and Apk Editor Pro, but haven't tried them.
    An example of cloned app, that has been renamed to ru.inceptive.screentwoautp using Lucky PAtcher clone operation ("p" instead of "o" at the end) (** I'm not responsible if Lucky Patcher has injected anything malicious in the apk, I hope not, I'm also using the apk **):
