I tried many things for many weeks when I first had mine and was unable to do it... (galaxy s6)
one article mentioned you need an app that's only available for the LG phone and force install it but when i did this it refused to run..

That LG software is supposed to refuse to run, that's the whole point. The very existence of this app in your phone enables the MirrorLink (you need to enable it in your phone settings also). Since the app refuses to run, instead of getting this app's display on your car's center console screen, you will get the phone launcher (home screen) instead.

I used this trick with my Galaxy S5, and it worked. I just got tired of the frequent need to reboot the whole system (phone and/or car media unit), so I changed back to Android Auto. It seems to be a bit more stable than MirrorLink (but not much).

I followed the guides and videos but still couldn't get it tow work..
mine doesn't like mirrorlink at all anyway, it rarely connects if i try, so maybe that was why... always tells me my device is not compatible..
Android auto works fine every time though..

Hi, For anyone interested I have a complete mirror of my phone with ALL apps working, it's slightly buggy at times and can take a little persistence to gain connection but it works, using Galaxy S5 Android version 6.0 and GENUINE Samsung charger cable.
