I need to control an android phone by another android phone using bluetooth.

Same as Teamviewer, but via bluetooth.

Suggestions ?

I have root and xposed.

So far I found only apps that use Wifi, or that transmit to a TV. Not what I need.

To make it more difficult: one of the devices is android 4.1

Edit 1: I said mirror before. It was wrong. I meant control. Need to view and control another device.

Edit 2: It may be something different than bluetooth, as long as no internet be required.

    Bluetooth is too slow to transmit video data like it is needed for screen mirroring/sharing. – Robert Aug 29 '19 at 16:57
  • It's fast enough. There's an app called "Bluetooth Remote Camera" that I stumbled while looking for this. If it's that fast, then it's great. – Lucas BS Aug 30 '19 at 11:57

    Technically screen mirroring is very close to video streaming. See this related question: stackoverflow.com/questions/32414806/… – Robert Aug 30 '19 at 13:35

    Would a battery powered WiFi access point (i.e. a RaspberryPi) be acceptable to link the two Android phones? – Morrison Chang Aug 30 '19 at 20:29

    Android has a Wifi mode called "Wi-Fi Direct" which allows to connect two Android devices without any need for a third device like an access point. You can check the screen mirroring apps if they support Wifi direct. – Robert Aug 31 '19 at 13:35

RemoDroid is the answer.

Works through WiFi Direct.

Works on older phones by using older versions (0.15.4 worked on my 4.4.0, same version installed on both).

Not bluetooth, but works.

Thanks Robert for showing the way
