4.2 Car Mode Patch

4.2 Car Mode Patch


This is a patch that restores the Home button override for CarHome Ultra while your Android 4.2.x phone is in Car Mode.

Requirements:
1) You must have CarHome Ultra installed


It works with standard and alternative Android home launcher apps and Car Home Ultra.

After installing the app, press Home and then select this app as the default home screen app.

One issue with this patch is that the Home button will no longer center the default home screen. I do not anticipate having a fix for this.

Please bare in mind that this is a patch. The issue can only be correctly fixed by Google with an update to Android.

Recent changes:
1.03 - CHU home launcher shortcut will work when in Car Mode

1.02 - Will now stores chosen home screen until you clear data on 4.2 Car Mode Patch

Big GS5 Problems After installing this on my GS5 I had major problems if I restarted my phone. None of my startup apps launched, the wifi radio would never turn on, and I couldn't turn off my screen. Even trying to manually launch any of these things wouldn't work.

Took a while for it to work correctly It took several minutes, and a few settings changes, for this to work on my phone yet it finally works correctly - I'm using an HTC One M8(Verizon) running 4.4.2 KitKat, and I did need this patch for Car Home Ultra to map my Home button correctly.

Won't let turn screen off I can't turn my screen off after boot until home launcher is cleaned from recently running programs several times. That's annoying.
