yes but with old version of AAEASE, then patched by aaaiotweaker app, first comes to aa menu but after first use it dissapears..
Have you used file explorer to see that it renamed the package? It's under storage/emulated/ 0/android/data. If it wasn't renamed using AAEASE then Google blocks it pretty quick.
Should be ru.inceptive.screentwoauto but with the letters jumbled up.

Xiaomi 12
Having exactly the same issue.

Xiaomi MI6 running LineageOS 19.1 (Android 12L) , also tried with LineageOS 18.1 (Android 11) with/without root.

Tried with Mindthegaps and Nikgaps

I have tried almost all install methods:
1. Kinginstaller, AAEASE, AAAD without root
2. ADB without root
3. standard install with root
4. built-in AA unlock and AAIO Tweaker unlock with root

I can see S2A as installed in the AA version details, but NOT in AA launcher and not in car
I can see S2A in AA Emulator though.
On my Xiaomi 12 MIUI Global (Android 12 no root) - installation via AAEase worked like a sharm.

On MI6 on stock Firmware (Android 9) - S2A was also working well.

With another custom app - Fermata - same issue

Hi. Unfortunately, it is not possible to automatically start S2A. Automatic launch of Google maps makes Android Auto. Therefore, to autolaunch S2A is necessary to modify Android Auto, and this is impossible (after modification AA doesn't work).
is this still the case? really need to make it autostart

There are ways around this (if one analyzes the behavior of the AA program). I was doing the S2A clearing and reapplying when it disappeared, but it became a pain. I finally tracked down the issue and resolved it so that S2A (and coolwalk and vanced music) all stick.

Cheers,

And how did you manage it that it stays in AA?

Do you have an answer for us? How did you manage it?

I'm sorry, but as Google monitors this message board, while I do want to share, I do not wish to have Google patch this so that this is disabled on my own phone. For this reason I am declining to share my solution.

I'm sad that Google will not permit the .01% of us who are interested in modifying our phones to maintain such hacks.

I hope you can respect this. I will say that the solution is not difficult. Other than that, I'm afraid I must leave it to other individuals to identify how to solve this.

Cheers,
B.d.

HELLO,

I have installed aaease 6.2 on my rooted android 12 phone.
When using aaease to install S2A you see downloading the app and then it shows "installing" and the arrows keepng spinning forever.
What do I do wrong, do I miss some permissions ?

FYI, I just updated to Android Auto version 8.1.626474-release, via Playstore. Started getting a pop-up about update required soon.

Screen2Auto still working, didn't have to do anything. Pixel 6 Pro unrooted.

    What settings are you using on your phone and Screen2Auto app, because everything works fine with my Samsung s22 ultra (unrooted) with ford sync aside from the touch screen responsiveness. I cant scroll or tap using the car screen.
    My Pixel 6 Pro works great. I also have Ford sync in my Maverick and have no issues with touch screen. I was referring to all the other posts about people having issues.

    Looking back in the thread, I seems most are either using Xiaomi phones or Custom Roms.

    For those who are having trouble with touch response:

    If you're using Magisk, install the Magisk module su_connector (download here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/7dduzlef86y7ppj/SU_Connector.zip/file). Reboot after installing.

    You should then turn off alternate touch in S2A. The touch response should work normally in S2A after installing this, and not ultra-sensitive like it is with alternate touch turned on.

    What is the round button in upper left car screen for?
    It depends where it shows for you

    But try to click, it should put the open app to background

    Eg, open GMaps, press that button, GMaps should go to background.
    Open S2A and some app in S2A like browser; press that button and browser should go to background and you can open another app from S2A

    Play with and with the settings in S2A

    For those who have S2A working - did you upgrade from Android 10/ 11 to 12/ 13? For those who do not have S2A working consistently - did your phone come with Android 11+?

    From what I have experimented, if you have S2A working on Android 10 and are UPGRADING to 11/ 12/ 13 - it works. If you clean install (say LOS) or factory reset and set things up, it doesn't.

    This is independent of manufacturers or devices.

    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 **):
