Thread: Disable dock autoplay/music app?

  1. #1
    Default Disable dock autoplay/music app?
    I have a Audi that i can dock my iPhone to. But the car is 8 years, so there is no settings in the car for that connection.
    The problem is that the car, or the iPhone, always autoplay the music i have in the Music app. Even if i pause the music it starts playing again after a few seconds. So i guess that the car issues this command.

    But i would like to play music from a streaming app, but it is not possible since the music app starts playing all the time.

    Is there a tweak to disable this autoplay feature, or disable the whole music app?

    Curious...
    Is this connecting via Bluetooth or hardwired?

    Could you setup an Activator action to auto-open a different app (like Pandora, Spotify, etc) when you're phone connects?

    I also found an Activator action that allows an app to launch when another app is first launched. For example, if the car launched the Music.app, Activator will then launch Pandora, instead!

    It is hardwired. Open up another app wont help. It would play for a few seconds then the Music app overrides it. So the best thing would be to disable the Music app. But i dont want to delete it completely.

    But i haven't tried to open up the taskmanager and kill the Music app, dont know if it starts again. If that works and could be automated it could be a solution. But maybe the "car" just issues another play command and the phone restarts the Music app.

    How about an Activator that Pauses the Music.app when you connect Power?

    Pause wont help, that is what i have tried so far. A few seconds later it starts again.

    Will try to kill it tomorrow.

    Ok, so I'm working on a tweak for you! I've been able to disable the 'Play' function in the Music.app but I'd like a Toggle in the Settings.app to turn it on/off.

    Does that sound useful?

    That sounds really cool. Would be very excited if it worked =)

    I haven't tried the link that you posted. But i've tried a little more how the Music app behaves. And now i'm starting to wonder if it is possible to solve this at all.

    As i said before, if i connect the iPhone to the dock connector in the car the Music app starts playing. Pressing pause on the phone only pauses the music for 2-3 seconds.

    Now i also tried to kill the Music app to see what happens. Now the strange thing is that after a few more seconds, maybe 5-10 now, the music starts again. But this time the Music app does not appear to be started on the phone. At least it don't show up in the task manager. But swiping left in the task manager, to reveal the Music controls, i can still pause the music.

    Also i'm using iOS 6.1, missed the iOS7 train. But still hoping for a jailbreak for 7.1.1 now that SpringPaper is available.

    For now i'm using a streaming app from a Norwegian radio station that i would like to use instead of playing music in the car.

    Oh, okay...
    I was making this for iOS 7. I doubt anything has changed in regards to the function that I'm disabling, though.

    That being said, do you have any other devices you could try this on before installing it on your phone?

    What I've tested is the ability to even play music from the Music.app. Regardless if I press the play button or tap on a song (which automatically starts the song), the music WILL NOT start.

    Actually, I just remembered!!! My wife is still on iOS 6! I can test it on her phone!!!

    So, here's the deal. I can't get the switch to work, yet...

    I can keep trying to figure it out or I can send you the tweak w/out a working toggle.

    I tried it on my wife's iphone (6.1.4) and it worx to stop the Music.app! Downside is you'd have to keep installing/uninstalling of you ever want to use the Musuc.app.

    What would you like?

    Sure, i dont use the Music app that much, but dont want to take away the possibility completely. It is worth a try, and maybe you figure out a way to get the switch to work. You have already done more than i could ask for.

    I just hope Audi wont outsmart your solution =)

    This toggle is driving me CRAZY!!! LOL!

    Anyways, here's the basic version. Uninstall to regain function.

    Let me know how it goes...

    Did you see the new tweak, DefaultPlayer?

    I wonder if you'd benefit from it!!!

    I haven't heard back from any Devs yet. I keep trying to get the Toggle to work but fail everytime! Wish I could get it completed so I could submit it for you and be done.... Sorry, bud.

    What you have done so far is much more than i had before =) It works good enough for me even without the toggle. I can noe use my phone to listen to streaming in the car.
