Default [Q] Now that FTV is rooted, Can we enable miracast support for phones

Hi!

Miracast function is present in fire TV but is limited to Fire tablets only. I was kind of wondering if we can enable the Miracast functionality on the FTV for other devices since it is rooted.

thanks!

co-ask.
I tried an miracast.apk from other tv box, I can see firetv from my nexus, but the casting stucked at starting. It could be compatibility issue or permission issue as I didn't root my fire tv.

I did the same thing. Kindle HDX 8.9, Sero 7 Pro, and Dell Venue 8 actually say connected, but nothing happens.
