I understand that that there is a setting.apk for bluetooth. It would be nice if you include in this thread. Thanks

Not sure what I'm doing wrong but I'm not able to install any apps on the fire stick using the tool. Command window just states,
error: device not found
- waiting for device -

Waited for about an hour and tried again but no luck.
I have turned on for ADB and installation of unknown apps on the fire stick. Also both the computer is on the the same network. Any advice?
Software version is 54.1.0.1

did you do the right commands? you have to connect to the firetv first using "adb connect ip of fire stick"
example: adb connect 192.168.1.17
