HDMI output via MHL with no restrictions
I'm trying to find a way around HDMI output restrictions. Certain video streaming apps will not load with an MHL cable connected (example-starz play, the Optimum App, the Xfinity App).
I tried flashing CM10 just but didn't work (plus HDMI output was pretty much broken). I'm looking for either a custom rom that "hides" the fact that I have an MHL cable connected, and will just mirror my screen regardless, or some sort of hack. I've been doing a lot of googling, and so far I've found an app called HDMI virtual switch (Hdmi Virtual Switch) which didn't work for me, and a lot of talk about modifying the file "/sys/devices/virtual/switch/hdmi/state" to change it to a 0 instead of a 1 (when an MHL wire is connected, this file has a single "1" in it, when you unplug it, it has a single "0" so I think apps are checking this file to see if I have an MHL wire connected) every time I save the file with a root explorer type app, it just get's set back to "1" again while the cable is connected. I'm desperate! I'll flash anything to get this to work.
Thanks in advance
