Both. Just a brief description of how it works: At the core of this technology is the Wi-Fi Direct™ standard, which allows for point-to-point connections between devices without the use of a router. From there, Miracast adds a vendor-neutral wrapper that originally supported the streaming of up to 1080p video and 5.1 surround sound. It uses this variation ...

Google Cast and Miracast are 2 different technologies and protocols. Miracast primarily allows wireless screen mirroring, and support is usually built-in in the OS in modern Android devices and Windows 8.1+. Google Cast additionally allows transferring external multimedia stream to the remote screen without decoding it on the mobile device, but support for ...

The following steps require both require root access and custom recovery TWRP. Pre N (Nougat) the long way. You could use the nano command to add and/or change values, but for ...

Yes it does, but probably not on the official ROMs. It is working on CM12 and recent CM11-based ROMs. The broadcom chip inside galaxy s2 plus supports multi-role (but with probably newer drivers), so it even doesn't disconnect from wifi while it is mirroring.

No, I don't believe the SGS2 Plus supports Miracast. This feature comparison shows the other phone having it but not the S2. However, from my understanding, since Wi-Fi Direct is supported it shouldn't be extremely hard for someone to get Miracast working on the device. This has been done for the regular SGS2, though I do not completely understand those ...
