That's the same s*** with the new APIs for the app Tasker. With Tasker you could make a task to accept and reject a call. With the new APIs from Gooogle, it is only possible to accept a call. Rejection is not possible any more.

It is a mess as I had a task which speaks out the name of the caller to me and I could accept or reject the call by voice. Now I can only accept the call or let it ring until the call is forwared to the mailbox. It is really annoying as the phone keeps vibrating for 30 seconds before the call is forwarded to the mailbox. Just stupid.

Xiaomi Mi 9T, A11, MIUI 12.5 Stable
AA v7.0.614134

I had S2A (v3.6.1) working (apart from the minor problem with darkening the brightness on the phone)

However, I received OS update - really a minor update (nothing visible) but it updated Google Play Services to Aug 1

Now, I have a problem:
- S2A icon showing on AA screen in the car
- When I click to S2A, it opens and shows the list of enabled apps
- When I click on any of the apps, list of availible apps moves from bottom-horizontal to left-vertical, phone changes the orientation and the app opens on the phone, but app does not 'project' to the infotainment

I have tried with different apps, experimenting also with settings in AA and S2A. I have updated to S2A 3.6.2, and even fully reconfigured AA, AIO Tweaker and S2A but I can no more obtain the app opened in S2A to display on the infotainment in the car (only the S2A itself displays)

Any other tip I could try?
Thx

:( It sucks cos on my old phone the custom had Disable flag_secure and it allowed screenshotting in any app. Also when I used to use s2a and AA it worked fine with Netflix and Amazon prime video. On my new phone I don't think this option can be enabled.
Tried the xposed module to disable flag secure and yes it doesn't work on android 12, i hope someone will find a way someday

Maybe you used AAAD (root not required) and/or you have an old version of AA and/or Google Play Services

Anyway, no chance for me to have S2A icon without patching.
And there is no problem in AIO Tweaker/patching:
- It makes S2A enabled and I can start it from AA
- From S2A I can click on any of the apps I selected for S2A, apps (like YT, Music, Video) start playing on the phone and even audio goes over the car speakers, but apps do not 'project' to the AA

I tried even with an older S2A Beta v3.5 (somebody suggested me) but the same as with the latest v3.6.2

I'll check if I could see anything from the logs - if not, I'll uninstall S2A, no luck (most important is that official AA works properly)

Giving up with S2A, tried different versions, different set-ups, always the same as described above

Btw, I tried also AAMirror - I can also patch it by AIO Tweaker to show in Android Auto, but when i open it, I cannot make it to 'project' to car (similarly as with S2A, audio plays through the car speakers but video does not display to infotainment)

However, CarTube works flawlessly: I also patched by AIO Tweaker to show in AA, and when I open CarTube, it plays (of course, YT only) and projects video to the car with no issues

So for me Screen2Auto vanished from AA completely.
Even reinstalling didn't help.

I will check Google play Services today in the evening and try to get it back.
Same thing happened to me a couple days ago. Was working fine, then got in the car and poof... Gone. I've tried everything I can think of to get it back, rolled back AA version, still no luck. I did check and AA auto updated on 11/29, but I'm almost positive I didn't see the issue until 12/2 or 12/3..

I have exact same issue. Always worked, didn't update. Its on the phone which stays in the care. Automatic updates turned off. It just magically stopped working today just after midnight.

Same version.
Before I was on 21.24.

Update: I could revert to the old Google Play Services. Afterwards, Screen2Auto apperead again in the app list of Android Auto on the phone. Unfortunately, Android Auto stopped working with the old Google Play Services. Moreover, after 10 minutes Google Play Services autoupdated again and I was in the same situation as before. So right now there is no solution. Let's hope for a quick fix.

    Screen2Auto and Fermata Auto for Android 12

    Dear all, I managed to have S2A working again on Android 12...I'd like to let everyone know that I am NOT a developer and I'm just reporting here the steps that worked for me.

    ROOT REQUIRED

    - Uninstall any previous installed AA version (Except the factory one, if available) and install the AA 6.9.613744
    - Enable 3rd party and developer mode on AA again
    - Download and install (no need to open it) the latest version of Screen2Auto, Use Lucky Patcher to clone the app and save the cloned app somewhere in your device.
    - Uninstall S2A
    - Download and install KingInstaller 1.2 (Find Attached)
    - Use KingInstaller to install the cloned version of S2A previously saved
    - Use AA AIO Tweaker app to patch the app. Reboot.
    - Open S2A and give all permissions.
    - Use HideMyApplist to detach Google Play store to update the AA app (If you're running Magisk Canary Release download the Zygisk - LSPosed module to make HMA work). Create a Blacklist template in HideMyApplist and you select the Android Auto app, click on save. (top right icon). Always on HMA Go to "Select Effective Apps" and look for google play store and tap on it, enable the following "Enable Hide", "Enable all hide methods" applied the blacklist template. Save (top right icon).
    - DONE!

    Use the same process for Fermata Auto if you're interested. I don't really know if all these steps are needed to make it work but I would recommend to "stick to the plan".

    PLEASE GIVE FEEDBACK IN ORDER TO CONFIRM THE FLOW.

    Cheersss

    I tried that. The link in that post is broke.
    There was absolutely not a single link in that post #1940.
    It was only a name of the sh script that stupid browser or webciew might want to show as a 'link'.
    But again, it was just a name of the sh script - I didn't give links to the posts, one should use search or read the posts in thread (as I didy) to find that script, and other ingredients

    Btw, I'm using LSPosed module Hide My Apps:
    to detach AndroidAuto (and YouTube because of Vanced root) and I never, ever have a problem.
    Playstore always reports that all my apps are up to date, and never bothers to update my detached apps although I'm e.g. on the old AA 7.0.614174 - screenshots

    I have screen2Auto working on two non-rooted phones. Installed screen2Auto with AA Ease. Uninstalled AA and started installed 6.6 version and opened developer options and ticked download from unknown sources. But playstore forced AA update on both phones to AA 7.1.614574 but kept the original settings and all apps. Screen to auto and Fermato auto work very well for over a week now. Thanks for help.

    Non rooted Samsung Note 8 and 9(android 9)

    I tried this method with AA 6.3. While PlayStore no longer knows AA is installed, AA itself asks to be updated, and will not proceed unless you do.
    Anyone else have alternative solution?
    I use AA 6.9 and it only warns that I need to update when I start AA, but it doesn't block me to use. Don't use too old AA (6.3)

    Edit: I updated AA to 7.0.614174, S2A still working for me and no warning when starting AA about the needed updates

    You have to install the repacked S2A with King Installer.
    On my A11 I have installed repackaged S2A just as apk, with absolutely no need for King or whatever!

    The whole procedure was described in one of my posts from the beginning of Dec, stll running S2A, Fermata and CarTube with no problem

    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...

    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.
    5
    Warning! New version of the Screen2Auto v2.2 released!

    -Completely rewritten application code.
    -Changed the interface and settings menu.
    -Quick panel replaced by launcher.
    -Increased download and work speed.

    -Return AAUnlock to the application (phenotype patcher is not needed).
    -Alphabetically sorting applications in menu.
