On my Samsung Note 9 I can use S2A without root. When I connect it to the USB port of the car, I need to confirm 2 times, that AA may connect to the phone. Is it possible to to automate that?

More troublesome is that mirroing is sometimes lost (screen stays black although touch on the darc screen reacts), when I switch between apps or the cars AA launcher and then replugging USB can be required. This can happen also on fist connection. Is a solution for that known?
You could try tasker. But you need good knowledge to do that. Without root you will never use mirroring well.. That is the simple truth. And biggest problem, you will loose mirroring very often and always be in a situation needing to resolve things.. I used it without root at past. I'll never try it again.

I have an unrooted samsung Note 9 and wireless setup with a AA/carplay smartbox that piggbacks of my peugeot headunit. I downloaded S2A 3.6.2 with AA Ease and wireless mirroring works great for me. Can watch youtube, bbc iplayer and other media and works very well. It does time out on occasion especially on long journeys but I am satisfied with it and will not be upgrading S2A 3.6.2 to 3.6.3. Xlouk issues are probably phone to headunit compatibilty /interaction issues.​

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

I've never seen that pop-up.
I give all (six-seven?) permissions it asks for on the first run (but I don't recall did it ask for that one)

(Maybe it depends on the ROM...)

Btw, I see that PROJECT_MEDIA was already allowed:
Code:

Hi
I have Screen2auto installed by AAAD on a non-deployed Sansung A02s and after launching it I must always confirm "start now" on my phone. When I leave an app in Screen2auto and want to start another app, I also have to press "start now". Is it possible to somehow set it to be automatically confirmed?
Regards

Hi...I rooted an older phone and it has android 6.0.1. I did all the steps with installing AA... then S2A before opening AA and getting forced to update even though I turned auto update off. At one point I saw it on AA. But after all getting black screen on Netflix and others I started uninstalling and installing But now I cannot see S2A in AA to activate it for viewing on car screen.
Phone is a ZTE Z981.
Root checker gives the congrats message that I'm rooted.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Steve

Hi
I am using wireless AA/S2A 3.6.2 on non rooted samsung note 9. Under Setting Launcher I have the 'Permanent panel' option selected so that other apps are displayed in menu while a particular app is in use. On my car touchscreen this option allows me to select another app while other one the other one is playing. It allows me to open that app and the first app will stop playing but it is open in the background and I do not have to restart the app.

Sounds like S2A can work on a nonrooted phone so I've installed an older version of AA and then installed S2A from AAAD. I've turned off auto updates for AA but the only way I could continue was to update. I get into the app fine but Netflix and other streaming apps still show black screen with sound. Am I missing something? I've seen posts saying it works on nonrooted phones. I have a Samsung S20 Ultra on Android 11. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Using it on my unrooted Pixel 6 Pro. Latest Version of AA from the Playstore and used AAEASE to install Screen2Auto. Did Not have to reinstall Screen2Auto after last Playstore Android Auto Update.
Touchscreen does NOT work after I launch an app, solved this by using a Firestick remote.

That said, apps with DRM like Netflix/Hulu/HBO Max, etc... do not mirror due to Android blocking DRM video mirroring. Especially on Android 11/12. Netflix DOES work on my Rooted Moto Ace 5g with Android 10, but only Netflix version 7.99.0(build 14 35427). Hulu/HBO Max/ other DRM apps just black screen even on the MoTo.

I'd try CinemaHD, FilmPlus, or IPTV apps for TV and Movies. No DRM.

Thanks for the suggestion. Mainly I wanted to just make Netflix and others work but I'll try those others.

Are you able to mirror streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, etc?

Please check what has been discussed (maybe here or in other similar threads)

You cannot mirror Netflix because of DRM.
But people say that mirroring works with an older (and particularly that one) version of Netflix

    Hello,ni can't use S2A with my (updated) Galaxy S20. S2A starts, I can launch apps but then they become unresponsive to touch operations. Only the floating button works. I tried all the 3 alternative touch config. My phone is not rooted, I installed using AAAD and gave all permissions.

    Can anybody help?

    If you are not rooted, don't ask for solutions, or post problems. It has been posted 1000 times that the app needs root. If it works "good enough" for you without root, congratulations but it won't work for all, and not 100% full working.
    The best conditions to implement screen2auto is ORIGINAL (full gapps) rom. Not custom rom. You can heavily debloat the original rom after you have a working screen2auto. Customs roms have problems.
    Samsung phones are probably among the most compatible. Xiaomi not so much. Best android version 7,8,9,10. Probably the older Android version, the better. If you have a phone with fast cpu mirroring may be very fast, almost like it works internally. But it also has to do with car system also. If this is slow, you can't do anything.
    I use samsung galaxy note 8 (broken screen, i can't use it elsewhere) and opel corsa. It works very fast. I forget it is mirroring. I use android 10, original rom HEAVELLY debloated. 80% of android frozen.
    Some video in my system to know what to expect about speed , and some ideas (i also post some older versions of AA i had at past) :

    Use a Firestick Remote. That's what I do on my Pixel 6 Pro(non rooted.)
    did you untick Automatic shutdown of SELinux?, i have unticked it and all works fine with option 2 in alternativa touch. Mine is a Galaxy s22 ultra unrooted.

    Hy,
    Thé same for me....grrrrr!!!
    That's why Android Auto must be detached from Google Play to prevent the AA updates. There were numerous posts about, and how to do it. However, it requires root

    Start with downgrading Play Services.

    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...
    1d1ca5ad04e260cb8dfa7360d36cee00.png

    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 **):
