I'm at the same point...trying to replace my raspberry pi with this (firetv is blazing fast), but need to get my lightpack working.

Does anyone have any idea where the source code for the android app is? I can't find it anywhere

I have some information for us!!

From a google group (I can't paste links yet, search for Lightpack Android affected google plus)

It is a group of android users who are trying to get lightpack working better on their android machines.

From FireTV wikipedia:

The device runs "Mojito," version 3.0 of the Android-based Fire OS which is compatible with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

From the google group:


Current version has the following limitations:
- Device should have Android API level between 14 and 17. That means Prismatik is broken for JB MR2 (4.2.2) and higher. High priority for this issue.

---------------------------------
is there any time estimate when higher version of android might be fully supported?
---------------------------------
Well, rought(sp) estimation - within week or two. (June 17th, 6 days ago).

---------------------------------



So that's good news!

I don't think that is the case here.

To test light pack I connected to my Moto X and installed the prismatik app. The phone does not have root, but Prismatik managed to detect and activate lightpack lights as well as I could control them.

The problem may be related to screen capturing, but we are not there yet. We need to make prismatik detect Lightpack first.

I'll keep investigating here.

I'm under the imoression it has nothing to do with screen capture. The issue is that the app isnt detecting the hardware. I think FireTV (as shared in the links I posted early on) doesn't enable usb access in any way and the hacks can make the hardware visible to us but not to the operating system.... in my humble opinion.
