Those who want to use S2a without any problems can relax with magisk 20.4 course. I have tried everything (20.4) except the touch screen did not work. I gave up now. Continue with magisk 20.4. magisk 20.4 does not work on A.11 alone. so I came back to A.10. galaxy s20 Ulta

Good day all,

I've managed to install the following on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (hlte, SM-N9005) in the following sequence:

TWRP 3.5.0_9-0
Lineage OS 17.1 (Android 10)
Open Gapps arm 10.0 Pico 20201201 (anything more recent breaks the Android Auto)
Android Auto 6.1.610543-release (Developer Mode, Unknown Sources enabled)
Magisk Manager 22.0 (apk)
Magisk 22.0 (zip, flashed through TWRP)
Rootchecker (to ensure device is properly rooted)
Screen2Auto 3.4.5
AA-AIO-TWEAKER-3.0.1 (patched Screen2Auto)

Result:
When Im in my car and connect the usb cable Android Auto starts up nicely. In the Apps I do have the Screen2Auto App. When I click on the app. It does open and show me my phone apps. When I click on an app the app opens from my phone and I can for instance stream Netflix, Youtube, you name it. So far so good.

BUT there is one big issue: As soon as I select an app in my Screen2Auto app running on Android Auto in my car. The app starts but I can no longer control anything through touch on the car display. It basically becomes just a screen mirror. I do not loose touch capability on the main android auto bar, that still works. Also the floating home button that Screen2Auto provides keeps working; But no touch control in the window of the apps like Netflix, youtube, etc. It does notthing. So at that point I have to take the phone manually and navigate there to select what movie I want to play on Netflix. When I go back to the app drawer on Screen2Auto touch is back.

Very strange. Has anyone experienced this before ? Im a missing something obvious ?

Is someone able to assist me on this ?

Any help is much appreciated!


OK small update:

This time around I've installed:

Lineage OS 18.1 (Android 11) (Already included Android Auto 6.1.610543 after Google Playstore Update (Developer Mode, Unknown Sources enabled))
MindTheGapps-11.0.0-arm-20210220_134931
Magisk Manager 22.0 (apk)
Magisk 22.0 (zip, flashed through TWRP)
Rootchecker (to ensure device is properly rooted)
Screen2Auto 3.4.5
AA-AIO-TWEAKER-3.0.1 (rooted and used to patch Screen2Auto + Reboot as required)
Given root to Screen2auto and all required permissions enabled and allowed.

Just as before; It works but no touch in apps. I have touch in the Screen2Auto app drawer and clock; When I click on an App to open it does; But from that moment on no more touch in the app; I do still have touch on the floating home button and the double finger touch opens up the screen2auto app drawer and I have touch again.

Very Strange it's as if there is one touch service that is not properly transferring back to android. I do here the click sounds however on my car when touching the display; I just don't have any reaction.

Resolution will be restored to factory.

No. Screen2Auto screen rotation settings will only reset once you disconnect your phone from the head unit.

If you want to handle many different scenario of screen rotation, I advise you to use Tasker and Rotation Orientation Manager. It's not easy at first but then you can automate a lot of things

Ok I will try to test it today without systemizer.

Edit:
And... It works without systemizer! OP8T, A11, Magisk 22, AA 6.1.6, s2a 3.4.6. so I think that the thing is option shutdown selinux.

Yes. 3.4.6 is very good. Now is no problem with floating button and background.
Best thing is persistent quick panel (icons) like ios. Super! Thanks.
Also works at A 11, AA 6.1.6, Magisk 22.

    Any resolution to the fact, that for many of us car touchscreen does not respond to screen touches when in an app?
    Mirroring works fine, but unless we can control the phone from the car screen it is useless.

    Thank you
    1
    my touch is working fine with A11 using senulix switch but i am unable to get s2echo working thats an amazing idea and i desperately needs it
    1
    Same problem I have no touch on youtube for exemple
    1
    Yes all my android auto apps show. I already enabled those settings, as it's required for s2a to work.
    @BRANDENDEUCE, looks like we are both in the same boat - have you come across any solution yet? Im reaching the point where im enitirely stuck.
    1
    Same problem I have no touch on youtube for exemple
    Create a 2 app shortcut on s2a homescreen combining youtube with any other app. Launch the 2 app shortcut, then close. Then create a single app shortcut on the main screen for you tube, or just launch it from the list of apps. Also check to make sure your phone is unlocked after launching youtube (I loose car screen control if locked).
