Almost works Turns my screen off just fine. It's getting it to turn back on and stay on more than a second that was an issue. Superuser now grants specifically root user permission and gives no notifications. Default permissions granting root access apparently weren't enough.

Works great until unplugging HDMI cable I planned on using this in conjunction with AppRadio Unchained. Works great when I plug it into the head unit, screen goes black but I can still operate the phone from the head unit. However, when I get where Im going and unplug my phone, the phone starts to have issues. The app will shut the screen off in half a second after screen on, comes back on, shut down, and repeatedly does this making navigating to anything on the phone impossible. I have to reboot my phone to be able the use it properly. Still trying to figure out what is going on with it. Using a LG G2 rooted running G3 ROM
