The root w/script is actually the easiest step, The brick part I heard only happend to a select few that updated magisk. I made sure not to update it and turned off the auto-update feature.

The root part I wouldnt work, it went pretty smooth for me.

Could be song 15 playing for example but highlight song 1, if you scroll, you start on top instead of scrolling at the song playing.

There is a button on the right side which says something like "jump to playing song" in music player try it.

3) going to oem system will always have splitscreen activated, I normally don't use this, is this a setting?

This is not splitscreen but it shows fuel left in that way as otherwise it would be stretched. It can be coded with bimmerworks app but I don't know exactly how I jsut leave it that way

4) did someone get idrive controls to work in other apps? like spotify

Yes I got it working you need an app called MTCD tools. I will send it via pm. Just install it, it will auto start everytime and make spotify control work. If it doesn't work sometimes, start first the original music player, then close it and then start spotify again. Anyways you need to start original music player first everytime to make keys work, this is the way the shitty head units are coded unfortunately, as the developers where to lazy to exclude key control service from music player app, it is binded inside.

BR
This app works without root? Iíd like to control spotify with the idrive, but I donít know to do root

I dont think any of the units discussed in this post have carplay built in, Its a USB Dongle you buy extra for a couple bucks.. There are units with it built in but I dont think any of the ones the majority of us are working with have it built in.

I dont want to speak on behalf of @Firefly1337 but im pretty sure he left due to audio quality concerns which is the major issue im battling since I also have done many sound mods ie technic harness / underseat sub upgrade / amp etc. So this having less audio quality is counter productive to everything ive done.

With that said the only alternative is the OEM / Carplay MMI Bimmertech stuff which is very overpriced if you ask me esp since Im coming from the crappy 6.5 screen. To get an 8.8 + diff headunit plus mmi I would be over $1000 and more towards $2000. We need to figure out how to unlock the Hexagon DSP in the unit and if that works we may reach the promiseland or atleast get pretty damn close .

To install it you have to root first then follow steps ( requires some IT / Android Knowledge, You can brick your device ) :

1 - Root the unit ( 1 click script here - ) :

2 - Install (Ed)Xposed ( apps in share below ) :

3 - Install iDriveListener.apk

4 - Enable it in the Xposed Manager app, reboot

You should now have iDrive control across all apps in Android ( not carplay ).
