Yatse works great for controlling my FireTV via my Android Phone (Galaxy Note 3) as long as I'm in XBMC.

However, I'd like to use my phone as a remote for the Fire TV main menu, inside Netflix, etc.

Anyone know of a good way to accomplish this?

I'm trying to do the same with Tablet Remote, but it appears to rely on registering itself as a system input device on the FTV, once we're able to adjust the input device it should work.

It would be a shame if we had to have root + access to input devices to do something as simple as remote control via phone/tablet, but I guess I'll take it any way I can get it at this point!

I'm looking for an answer on this question. Wondered if there is a fix for this yet, or someone was able to figure this out?

You need to be rooted to install google play. Once rooted, use the directions on this link and you should be good to go. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2790207
