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.

I have a weird issue with Screen2Auto. Everything works as intended, both touch and streaming. The problem is with disconnecting - after phone removal from a headunit, there is 80% chance of hanging some elements of UI. Sometimes recent apps button doesnt work and after locking the screen it fails to wake up until hard reboot. In other cases, after a minute phone is bootlooping or literally nothing happens and everything works great. Disabling screen cast from S2A before disconnecting from a car seems to somewhat reduce amount of crashes.
I have an Asus Zenfone 6, stock android 11, rooted. The issue persists regardless of "restore screen after disconnecting" is on or off. No settings combination seems to fix it.

EDIT: latest S2A, Android Auto 6.8 - issue was present on older versions aswell.
Same ****ing problem, Xperia 5 II, Motorola Edge Plus, continous bootloops, the only smartphones which work without problems was Xiaomi Mi 10T and MI11, but now S2A doesnt' work with Mi 10T and I dont' know why...

Google forced me to update Android auto today. I installed 6.8 and screen to Auto is still working, but I'm already getting the notice you must update Android auto soon.
Anyone have Android auto 6.9 version working with screen to auto?

I tried 6.9 and it didn't work on my phone. Do you have any specific settings or version of any particular app like Google play services etc that allows your screen2auto to work. I got a new phone but same model as my last phone and I use every version app as the last phone, cleared data, did everything the same as last phone and my screen2auto still won't work or show up in aa

After updating Android auto to version 7.0,the icon S2A (version 3.6) is gone. but I downgrade back to Android auto 6.9 ,it is back. my phone is pixel 3 with Android 11 and it is rooted. I even tried to flash my phone,but still can not make S2A work with AA 7.0. So does S2A not work with new Android auto 7.0 (it is released on 15 Oct) ?

Has anyone here tried using King Installer to install S2A on an unrooted phone? I have S2A on my unrooted Galaxy S7 using the ADB method but it has some issues. I'm wondering if King Installer would make S2A work better, or does it matter once installed?

You might try this. Worked on my Unrooted Samsung A50 today.

I was able to get Screen2Auto working today using AAAD. Installed S2A version 3.5.6, but touchscreen wouldn't work after opening an app. I uninstalled S2A but couldn't reinstall version 3.6 because AAAD only allows 1 install per month unless you pay. So I uninstalled both apps.

Then I installed AAStore (search github.) Installed Screen2Auto 3.5 beta using AAStore. It works, touchscreen and all. Android Auto version 6.9.613713, Google Play Services version 21.39.16

Now I have to figure out why this A50 stops recognizing USB all together after unplugging and re plugging several times. I plugged it into a PC and it recognized it, then worked again in my car. Until I unplugged it again.

Edit: Where are the instructions for adb install method?
Edit2: Nevermind, found them in post

When you unlplug the phone from car, before you plug it again, you need to restart your phone. I have samsung galaxy s9 plus and with this method works all time.

Interesting, Thanks.
That kind of sucks, what's the reason for that?
It won't even charge or anything when I plug it into my car now the next day. Never had that problem with any other phones like my Motorola.

Official site is here:

There is already a v3.6.1 available.

Changelog is here:

I don't speak russian. Therefore I used Google Translator to translate the changelog. Unfortunately the translation is a mess. Therefore I didn't understand the changes.

The Android Auto app vanished from my smartphone. Nevertheless, Android Auto is still running.

I think, Google will force me to update Android Auto in the next days...

Does anyone else have the same topic?

Go to settings/apps and select see all apps.
Choose Android Auto then scroll down to "additional settings in app"
This still works on AA 6.8

    The only way 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 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.
    2
    you can try to untick the USB debug mode in android developer options

    Would you upload this modified apk? Thanks in advance...

    Or better pm. Just for another " new blacklisting " when it's public.

    I found this post on the AA subreddit.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/AndroidAuto/comments/raelqc
    I've installed Adguard and disallowed Android Auto(and Google Play Services,AA alone didn't work) from using cellular and Wifi data. Will see if it works.

    Edit: This didn't work, S2A still disappeared.
    I'll just keep clearing Android auto app data or using my jailbroken iPhone in the meantime.

    Good News! I haven't seen anyone verify AA 7.0 working with Screen2Auto.

    I just installed Android Auto 7.0.614103. Then the latest Screen2Auto 3.6.1, used AA Phenotype patched and Rebooted.


    It works!! This is on my Rooted Motorola Z3 Play. Haven't tried yet on my main phone the Moto Ace 5g. Only thing is I need to get the video fullscreen like it is on my Ace 5g now.

    Edit: Just did the same process on my Moto Ace 5g. It works as well, and the video fills the entire screen. Must have to do with the different aspect ratio of the 2 phones.

    Slightly postponing the release date as it is necessary to test - November 22
