I installed Screen2Auto on an unrooted phone using the script from the Inceptive.ru website. There are a few glitches but it works overall.

Would Screen2Auto work better on an unrooted phone if I used AAAD to install it?

Also, since I've installed Screen2Auto using the script from the Inceptive.ru website, can I just update Screen2Auto and have it work? Or do I need to install an updated version using the script?

Navigation within Screen2Auto works well with my car's touchscreen (Chevy MyLink) but using the car's touchscreen within an app is clunky and inconsistent when running Screen2Auto on an unrooted Galaxy S7.
I've tried enabling "Alternative touch", anything else I should try to make the touchscreen more responsive within an app?

I got a New phone (Moto Ace 5G) and installed Screen2Auto exactly like I did on my G Stylus.

"Installed the latest Android Auto(6.1.610544) and enabled developer mode, checked unknown sources box.
Installed Screen2Auto 3.4.6 and went to Other setting and Clicked the AA Unlock. Reboot phone.(I had issues with this option not being available/not doing anything on my Moto G stylus phone.)
Select apps you want too show up in Screen2 auto settings.
Then installed AA Phenotype patcher, selected screen2auto in apps, and Patched, reboot."

When I click Screen2Auto on my Car Stereo it opens and just says " No messages during this drive"

Doesn't' show any apps to select or anything to open?

What is this SU Connector for?

There is a Magisk Update to V23. Does anyone know if S2A works with Magisk 23.0?
Touchscreen works on S2A launcher Home only, but not in-app, not after I launch an app.

After Android Auto loads I click on Screen2Auto icon and S2A appears correctly.
Then I can use the touchscreen of my car display to launch an app, for example I click on MX Player, but after the MX Player app is started I can't use touchscreen of my display car anymore! Touchscreen of the car becomes not responsive (only except for S2A round button).
It have to control all the functions by my smartphone only.
Same issue with any other app.


->After installing the SU Connector app. I can use the apps that are in great S2A eg: MX Player, navitel, youtube vanced ....

My phone:
- Samsung note 9 Exynos
- Andoid 10 (ROOT)
- AA 5.9.604634
- Magisk 22.1
- AA AIO Tweaker V.4.0.2
- S2A 3.5.2-beta
-> SU Connector

My car: Mazda CX-5 2017 (KE) - 59.00.540

Did you try with unrooted and AAAD? Does it work?

When I installed Screen2Auto using AAAD, Screen2 Auto didn't show up as an app available in AA (Galaxy S7).
I haven't tried a later version of AAAD because I'm out of downloads for the month.

I think the developer of AAAD did himself a disservice by limiting the downloads to one per month for the free version. It'd be better if there was a free trial period. I'd gladly pay for the pro version if I was sure everything would work correctly.

I might be wrong, but if you have the latest android auto app you might need to install AA AIO TWEAKER by shmikelsa as well

Thanks for the Reply! Couldn't get the AA AIO to work, but I reinstalled an older Android Auto version and patched with phenotype, and it IS working !

Prefer the Fullscreen of my jailbroke iphone SE. Anyway to get the picture to Fill the screen? I've tried Auto Fullscreen(fit) in Settings, it doesn't change. Significant space lost on screen. Here is a pic of iphone vs Screen2Auto on my Car Radio with the same App.

Az érintőképernyő csak az S2A launcher Home alkalmazásban működik, de nem az alkalmazáson belül, nem azután, hogy elindítok egy alkalmazást.

Az Android Auto betöltése után rákattintok a Screen2Auto ikonra, és az S2A helyesen jelenik meg.
Ezután használhatom az autóm kijelzőjének érintőképernyőjét egy alkalmazás elindításához, például rákattintok az MX Player-re, de az MX Player alkalmazás elindítása után már nem használhatom a kijelzős autóm érintőképernyőjét! Az autó érintőképernyője nem reagál (csak az S2A kerek gomb kivételével).
Csak az okostelefonommal kell vezérelnie az összes funkciót.
Ugyanaz a probléma bármely más alkalmazással.


-> Az SU Connector alkalmazás telepítése után. Használhatom azokat az alkalmazásokat, amelyek nagyszerű S2A-ban vannak, pl .: MX Player, navitel, youtube vanced ....

A telefonom:
- Samsung 9. megjegyzés: Exynos
- Andoid 10 (ROOT)
- AA 5.9.604634
- Magisk 22.1
- AA AIO Tweaker V.4.0.2
- S2A 3.5.2-béta
-> SU csatlakozó

Autóm: Mazda CX-5 2017 (KE) - 59.00.540
Húzza jobbra a képernyőt, és ott lesz az mx lejátszó. Én is megtettem, és akkor sikerült.

Same problem on my OnePlus 8Pro, what version of AA did you downgrade too?

    For those of you having screens with punch holes and notches, use this Magisk module, then apply it via Developer options > Notch.

    Use the custom settings for your device, do not install the ones for Pixel and OnePlus if you don't have one. Different settings will be available from the Developer options for you to try.

    See screenshot from my Moto G8 Power on CrDroid 11 (sorry for the blurriness, I'm using the Desktop Head Unit emulator on my computer in order to avoid going back and forth to my car for testing). I'm using Extras for AA with Substratum in order to reduce the navbar size.

    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.
