Yeah it only works over wifi Does anyone know a way around this?
Maybe you can try to connect to a Wi-Fi network that doesn't necessarily have internet like a router plugged into wall only, then have both Ethernet and Wi-Fi both connected to Amazon fire.

Any update on this now that the firetv has been rooted? Or has anyone modified the app yet?

If this was iOS it would be easy to solve as there are a half dozen tweaks to fool apps into thinking your on wifi. Surely there must be something similar on Android.

I'll check when I get home.

Why not use the XPOSED module and give it a try: http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.l...wificonnection

Ah, so something does exist! I'm completely new to Android so my knowledge of Android tweaks is limited.

I will give a try.

I side loaded the Xfinity app before root and it works "ok". Using a mele pro air mouse, I can get around the app pretty well. The only thing I notice, which I think I read someone on here before, is that there is some frame rate issues. The video doesnt seem to be 100% smooth, especially on live tv.

Anyone else notice this?

Well I can confirm the xposed fake wifi module works with the xfinity app to trick it to work over the lan. However with that module activated there is some weird stuff going on with the firetv gui, it bounces around the menu a bit. If I select say prime video it'll jump down to music, it's pretty weird.
