rectification. I hadn't noticed that "aaease" in the settings had to be checked for root permissions. Now works perfectly with touch via Samsung S7 root.

Everything workings fine without root? You don't have to press anything in screen every time to have screen2auto boot? Anyway it's good that it's working for you 8 months without root. Just from curiosity, which phone have you got, what android version, original or custom. But even if it's working fine for you, its not the standard..
I had months, i hadn't use screen2auto so i asked some things, to see if something changed. I hadn't any problem to make it work. Actually the problem was with the specific car (opel corsa 2016. Android auto doesn't work at all in this car without upgrading the headunit of the car. I probably im 1% which have make it work without upgrading in this car).
Yes, works great with wireless AA. I only have to authorise to start application.

Se non qualcos'altro, asase cambia il nome del pacchetto per S2A. È necessario poiché Google aggiorna costantemente Android Auto con l'elenco (nero) delle app che non devono essere autorizzate a funzionare

What is modified S2A ? From where it can be downloaded?
I understood that "AAease" modifies Screen2auto to be launched on Android Auto, and I confirm that I had tried to install it with "AAAD" and on Android Auto the icon was not visible while with AAease it worked.
With root permissions of course.

Three or four months ago I did install S2A to my phone and posted with all details (aaease was just one important step of three or four steps) - and it worked

However, I reinstalled the phone and didn't bother to install S2A once again (frankly, I practically used it solely just for testing the installation and later from time to time did it still work)

However, I do use Fermata and CarTube with Android Auto (but they don't require S2A)- that's enough for me to be able to use YT with AA

I don't remember now. What's supposed to happen?
S2A app has to open. It will be a new screen on the infotainment (head unit in the car), showing icons of all apps you had previously configured to use through S2A. Eg, icon of your browser, your email app, whatever

Then, inside that screen of S2A, you can open that browser, email, etc

That way you can practically use any app you have on your phone (even Google Play app, Settings, whatever) through S2A, on the infotainment screen

Thanks for the break down. But another member said it wasn't working because pioneer has a closed in firmware. My unit is the pioneer 4660nex

Google has released Android Auto 7.9.1228.Does Screen2Auto work without any issues in this version of Android Auto in Samsung Galaxy Phones running on Android 12?

    Can you deal with the problem that Android 13 s2a cannot be used?

    I have s2a working fine on A13. Not sure why you say it can't be used.

    Cheers,

    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...

    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 **):
