Known Problems/Bugs[]

DeX not starting with Android Pie You need to use a HDMI Dummy to fake a connected HDMI-Display.

Android Pie (9.0)[]

With the update to Android Pie (9.0) DeX can be used without a DeX Station but needs a HDMI-Connection. This leads to the problem that DeX is not starting anymore with the method above mentioned. You need to plugin in a HDMI Dummy (like this https://www.ebay.de/itm/4K-VGA-Virtual-Display-Adapter-Dummy-Headless-Plug-HDMI-DDC-EDID-Headless-Ghost/323582850381?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649) to fake an established HDMI Connection
