Enable Android screen mirroring to Chromecast on your rooted device

Enable Android screen mirroring to Chromecast on your rooted device

Google just flipped the switch to allow Android screen mirroring to Chomecast for a few devices, but if you don’t have one currently supported, you’ve been pretty much out of luck.

Thanks to r3pwn over at XDA Developers forum, through an experimental app, you can now enable the beta feature on your rooted device by installing an APK.

Devices the method is said to work with include:

  • ASUS PadFone 2
  • Droid RAZR MAXX HD
  • Sony Xperia Z
  • Sony Xperia Z1
  • Sony Xperia Z2
  • Sony Xperia ZL
  • Sony Z Ultra
  • HTC Droid DNA
  • HTC One M8 (Including GPE)
  • Motorola Moto X
  • Motorola Moto G
  • Samsung Note 8 Tab
  • Samsung Note Pro 12.2 Tab
  • Nexus 7 2012
  • Oppo Find 7
  • Oppo Find 7a
  • OnePlus One
  • LG GPad 8.3
  • LG G2 Mini
  • NVIDIA SHIELD

There have been mixed reports for the Samsung Galaxy SII and Galaxy Note 2. It’s “tested not working” with the HTC EVO 3D, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and most older devices.

r3pwn notes that you need to have the latest version of the Chromecast companion app installed, if you don’t have it you can download the APK here, root access on your Android device and Android KitKat (most likely at least 4.4.1). As with all sideloaded apps, make sure you enable the install of apps from “Unknown sources” under Security in Settings on your device.

Try it out and let us know in the comment section below if it works for you!
