Methods to Screen Record Apps Without Black Screen Issue

Method 1. Using App Cloner Application

You can use the App Cloner app to create a clone of an app with customized settings that can help you record screens without a black screen issue.

Note: Make sure the app is not an APKs bundle but a single standalone APK version of the app. If it is APKs bundle than download the single APK standalone version from the Web.

  1. Download App Cloner APK and install it on your Android.

    I tested the app on Android 12, and it is working well. If the above version force closes or not working on your device, try any other version from the web.

  2. Open the application and select the app that you wish to clone for screen recording on your Android.
  3. Here change the app name or app icon color. This will help differentiate the cloned app from the original.
  4. Now scroll down and click on Display options and enable the Allow Screenshot toggle.
  5. Move back and click on Cloning options and enable Skip library.
  6. Now click on the right-tick option to grant permissions and create the clone.
  7. Once the Cloned app is created, Install the app and (Enable Unknown Sources).
  8. Once the cloned app is successfully installed, you can record restricted screens without black screen issue on Android mobile.

If the cloned app you created forces close or crashes, you have to enable other options under Cloning options, (try different combinations); namely, local activities, local broadcasts, and services ignore crashes and check if these options help rectify the cloner app issues.

    I have Android 12 and I tried both methods… The Tai Chi application creates problems in the login section and entering the programs and does not allow us to enter the account.
    App Coloner also gives an error message and says: “this app bundle curtains 64-bit native code, which is not supported on Android 9 pie”

      For App Cloner, you need to use a Standalone Single APK File. Try APKMirror to Download APK. APKs Bundle will not work with App Cloner.
