Re: Lenovo k8 note cast screen can't find any device

Hi* Mate. Read my previous posts and you might understand that using the term which you used is not viable on an authorised Company site. You better call it "Developer access".

And buying the company (Motorola) is not the clause here. The software placed-in is by the company who developed Android. We are not talking about any company customisation but a simple "Stock Android". And the build.prop or a 'similar' file is present in every phone in one way or the other. And there is no use to get a "Developer access" to do so when you bought it from a registered seller.

I am a Developer and I know that it's not such a big issue but a mind-set of Google can be seen here as they want Chromecast to be involved and so hence through their Stock Android. Company has to agree to those Those T&C.

But a simple patch for this can easily solve it. Or a simple way to do this is to take this feature out from every phone of this series. Peace :)

Re: Lenovo k8 note cast screen can't find any device

I am trying to find a way to cast my phone's screen to the laptop. 

Laptop supports Miracast.

When I try to search for devices in Settings on the phone, it doesn't find my laptop. However, my other phone Mi detects it in settings.

Tried with my Android TV too, still no luck.

After researching I found that I might have to enable Wireless display from the 3 dots, but there are no 3 dots on the top bar. (As if no code has been put up for casting)

So can anyone tell me how to cast my phone screen without using a 3rd party app?

It's because lenovo k8 series only support casting through chrome cast devices only. I am also facing this problem and now came to know that k6 series supports normal casting but not k8 series

Its a known issue and Lenovo isn't going to fix this.

The only way is rooting the device.
