DONATE TO ME
Thank you for this app.

I am running the latest version.

I am not rooted (do i need to be) and xposed is NOT installed. So basically stock AFTV with XMBC 13.1 and this app sideloaded using adbFire.


When i first ran the program it works as expected. I can go to Amazon launcher from FireDTV. However, afr the first few times, it doesn't work anymore. Pressing Home button takes me to Amazon Launcher everytime now.

U need xposed and rbox module installed. After that it works perfectly.

Root/xposed isn't required for this launcher. Even though the xposed mod makes the launcher work better, it isn't required. The launcher should still work without it.

- The reordering is not saved 100% of the time. It will often lose the order I have used. Additionally, when I enter reorder mode, sometimes all the icons move randomly, instead of the selected icon being moved along the grid.
- After extensive use, firedTV seems to open new instances of itself each time i press the home button, instead of reopening the launcher. I am not sure if this is actually happening, of it its just lag from my system.

Thanks again!!!

FYI - I am on the Xposed framework that sets a launcher.
These are my observations as well. I think I am going to see what happens if I "freeze" the launcher using Titanium. At least that way maybe I can retain the order of the icons better. It is very annoying that moving icons around is so glitchy. I appreciate all the hard work, but I would expect within a minute of normal testing this would have been readily apparent.

You can access Settings by using the Options button on the remote.
