I am trying to use my phone as controller and my 42 TV as display. Chromecast is casting the thing.

  • I have tried Show Touches and Show pointer location as described here in Developer options. However, I do not want to keep Developer options active all the time. Also, some of the features fail too often, causing epileptic continuous blinking in different colours.
  • I do not have any other option (etc Show GPU view updates) on in Developer Options.

Phone: Oneplus 2
OS: CyanogenMod 13

    Have you tried the "Show Touches" option in the Developer Options?

  • @benjamin Yes, I tried it. I do not however want to use Developer mode continuously. Either of the modes also fails too often, causing severe complications. Aug 25 '16 at 11:50

    The blinking you are describing is most often caused by activating "Show GPU view updates" - which adds a red overlay to views rendered by the GPU. The developer options are the easiest option I guess. You don't have to enable "Show pointer Location" most likely. Maybe there is another way though which is better suited for you

  • @benjamin No, I do not have Show GPU view updates on. It happens just with those two settings. Aug 25 '16 at 12:11

No support for this in Android 6-7 by default without the developer mode.
