Where can i find an Android Settings.pak that will work with AFTV or does it have it built in?

Do I need root to sideload it?

Yes, you have to sideload. See attached apk.

Thank you for the file.

yes, I know it has to be sideloaded but does the AFTV need to be rooted to use it? Do i need any additonal module to use it?

Not that I am aware of needing any extra module to load the Settngs apk.

As far as root goes, I do not know. I would suppose that some featues of Settings will be disabled and not work if root is unavailable. I installed mine after root, so I have no first hand experience. Do know that even with root, some features will crash when you try to go into them and crash your app as well. But I have not see any harmful impact due to this.

Default Bluetooth

I used the bluetooth to scan for devices and it picked up my Bose Soundock. Very simple. From what I read it won't work with devices which need a PIN

I cannot seem to install this. I have root using adbFire and granted SU, and have unknown sources enabled, but when I use adbFire to install it takes a really long time and never finish.

You can try to install using adb manually. I have installed this a few times and never had issues.

Are you connected to FTV correctly over the same subnet? Thats the first thing I would check. It is a small install and should not taken more than 5 to 10 seconds to install.

It must be the way you uploaded the file here or the way i downloaded it.
I searched and found another post with the file uploaded via a different service and downloaded it and it installed fine.
I found it here for reference:

Thanks for all of your help!

Is it possible to enable installation from unknown sources, so that you could install APKs from dropbox for example instead of sideloading them?
