This is the closest think to the default Google TV launcher that was rocking Android TV until version Android 7 Nougat, just before Google decided to change the layout of the default launcher. It can be installed on any Android device, not just Android TV but also any Android TV Box and Fire TV device as well including the Amazon’s FireTV Stick (Firestick). Credits to Evan Welsh aka Rockon999 for creating and maintaining this awesome launcher!

Features:
– Can open Bluetooth and WiFi settings without the stock launcher installed.
– Opens notification center, notification settings, and displays the current amount of unread notifications.
– Can display Amazon-downloaded apps in the store for easy updating and management.
– Can open individual app’s settings.
– Can sort applications by categories (video, music, favorites, etc)
– Stripped of all Google services (to prevent crashes!)

Limitations:
– Recommendations were removed (unfortunately they are too unstable and unworkable without root, though the developer is exploring a method of adding them back into the launcher in Alpha 3)
– As this is based on decompiled sources there are bugs that must be squashed
– The uninstall button in edit mode is broken via the traditional Android TV method. Instead use the Fire TV app menu.
– Also, the done button in edit mode is broken too. Simply use the back button on your remote

Basics:
– The menu button will open up an app menu.
– The edit favorites launcher in the settings row can be used to add apps you want easy access to. Press back to exit the selection screen.

PS

You should install LauncherHijack v3 for a fully functioning home button on the Fire TV devices.

Fire TV Firestick Test App Virus / Malware Fix

If you don’t want to reset to factory settings and all you want is to “turn off” the miner then you can install the attached APK that is a modded version from the original virus except the run.html is a blank page (without the minning script) and the Activities name from the AndroidManifest.xml were changed so it can’t start now, so pretty much the virus will think it’s working but it’s not. It’s a 100% secure and an easy fix to get rid of this malware!

The fix was created by XDA user “innovaciones” so a huge thanks to him for creating this very smart solution!

AceStream Engine (Android TV – FireTV Stick)

Acestream Engine is needed for any Android device in order to watch Acestreams. Also on KODI, other than the Plexus addon installation you will need this APK in order to be able to stream. No login is required, just install and run it at least once. Then you are set to go! This is the version for Android TV and FireTV Stick with autostart function so it will be ready to stream whenever needed!

Using Acestreams apk means you use p2p / torrents so I highly recommend you always use a VPN service in order to be secure. When using the torrent protocol your IP is easy to find so that makes you vulnerable. My recommendations for 100% secure VPN are:
