This week we found out you could use the Chromecast Android app to mirror your screen to the TV set, no matter what you had on the smartphone/tablet screen. The feature was limited to a few privileged devices, like the Nexus models or the latest LG, HTC and Samsung phone, but today it appears that this function has been made available to most Android models, too.


Forum member r3pwn tried to enable it for all devices and skipping the pleasantries, here’s a download link for you. This is a project in experimental phase, with dozens of devices still being tested right now. The user didn’t make the feature, he just came up with a way to enable it on Android devices. It will be required that you use the latest version of the Chromecast companion app and also root access must be available on your device.

KitKat is also required, by the way. Among the devices that seem to support this achievement are the ASUS PadFone 2, Xperia Z1, HTC Droid DNA, Motorola Moto X, Oppo Find 7, LG G Flex and many more. Confirmed as non working are the HTC Evo 3D, ASUS PadFone X, Galaxy Nexus (strangely) and Samsung Galaxy S II. So, did you try it? Does it work for you?
