Unless you install S2A with AAEASE, Google detects it and blocks 3rd party apps.

That's because AAEASE changes the package name when it installs it. You'll have to search for a way to do that manually if you can't install with AAEASE.
But my aa stream is installed through aasase and there is no screen output

Why my screen goes sleep after 15 seconds of inactivity in screen2auto ? I have to run it again and with second try it stays ON always. Everytime I start the car i have to repeat it or open s2a twice before using. Any solution to that ?

I found that if I check option in "restore screen" called "touch brightness activation" then everything is ok and screen doesnt goes black at sleep time setted in settings of phone unless im in settings of phone. If I put my s2a in settings then it goes black after 15 seconds.. next thing is that this touch brightness activation from time to time puts my phone with max brightness if I dont even touch phone screen. It must be bugged at android 12. Can devs look into this ? Its annoying rly..
Im at android 12 OS but at android 10 and 11 same thing happens.
I would use s2a without any setting set under screen restore part of s2a settings.
I hope you will find a solution in new update.
Thanks

Of course, I supposed that - but wanted to know which app and where from

Now, anyway, I found myself - for somebody else who might also want to know:

Are people having trouble using AAEASE? That seems to be the simplest straightforward way to install S2A these days.
I've had no issues on my non-rooted Pixel 6 pro even after multiple updates to play services and Android Auto.

I installed S2A via AAEase (am on Android 12). The package name has thus been changed and "installed via Playstore" is also displayed. When I reset Android Auto (i.e. wipe all data) it shows S2A. This lasts about a day (sometimes less) and then it suddenly disappears. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this and how to fix it. Google seems to find a way to recognize S2A after all.

Edit:
It would be interesting if there are other users observing this strange behavior. And it would be interesting what phones and what firmware is installed.

I have: POCO F3 with firmware FW V13.0.3SKHMIXM baseband - MPSS.HI.2.5.c1-00017-0426_2344_a5fbaccbf3

    Hi. This my not help many posters because I have been lucky so far. Installed screen2auto with AA Ease back in December on non root samsung note 9. It was installed on AA 6.7xxx version and android 9. App still present despite AA updates and phone on android 10. Never had to reinstall s2a app or clear cache and it works very well in wireless AA set up.

    The only 3rd party app that disappears every couple of months is carstream. Solution is to uninstall app from my phone and reinstall from AAAD pro and it shows up in app list.
    is not necessary to uninstall carstream. If disappears you can start carstream from phone, close it, and it will appear again on android auto.

    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,
    B.D.

    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 **):
