Fixes the issue. However, it causes the "add to homescreen" from any Web browser to fail, since this patch is a home screen override. To allow for shortcuts to be added, you must: clear this app as a default home screen > add desired item to home screen > launch car home and when given the "complete action using" option, choose to always have the patch as home screen. It's lengthy, but hopefully it will save others the time I lost trying to figure out why my device was not creating shortcuts.
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.
Where's the 4.3+ support?!?! It will prevent your Home button from taking you to the Home Screen when CarHomeUltra (CHU) app is NOT in use BUT, if you are running on 4.3 or higher, it does NOTHING for acting as a Home Button for the CHU app when USING the CHU app. Which is what it is intended for!!! Hence, the app is utterly USELESS!!!
Kills home button When not in car ultra the home button does not work anymore. Does great in car ultra though. Be a long time if ever that Google will fix this. Android 4.3 Note 3. Bummer. Applaud the developer for giving it a shot!
Not really working on Note3 Doesn't seem to work on the Note3 as intended. Home button still doesn't work and all inbound calls now answer with speakerphone, whether in car mode or not. Rating is for the effort, CHU is otherwise great. Hopefully 4.4 fixes this issue.
Not so good I understand the purpose of this patch, and my Galaxy S4 needs it. But now Touch Wiz won't jump to the first page when the home button is offere pressed. The screen flashes, but remains on same page. I also have the impression it causes a slight delay to access the home screen.
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
