If use use titanium backup to try and uninstall it, it should give you the package name on the confirmation screen. And then you can cancel the uninstall before you actually remove it. That may work for getting the name.

Found it using 7zipper 2.0 by viewing the details which required root access and was granted.

com.amazon.tv.ime

Just do the same steps as you would for dcp.

adb shell

su

pm disable com.amazon.tv.ime


And then it should no longer appear so you will never need to worry about the problems that could be caused by renaming it.

Ok so after testing using the method mentioned above it does in fact hide the on screen keyboard but it also completely disables the possibility of entering text in certain instances. For example, I enabled the above and disabled the similar method used for blocking. My FTV wasnt finding the update so I went to network settings and forgot my wifi network. When I tried to reconnect by selecting the network name there is no option at all to enter text of any sorts. I actually had to remove the password from my network connect unsecured and reconnect in to adb to disable the keyboard hiding to be able to reconnect to a secured network.

Anytme you use the "su" command you have to be rooted, so no it will not work on unrooted devices.

You can use ADB commands. I demonstrate on the example of an alternative keyboard which I develop - Fire TV Style keyboard.

How to install and activate the root privileges are not required (enter commands in the queue):
Code:
adb connect 192.168.1.134:5555
adb install /home/semitop7/FireTV_style_keyboard.apk
- (Instead of / home / semitop7 / - indicate your way to the .apk file).
Code:
adb shell ime list -a
- Pop up about such a list:
com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME:
mId=com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME mSettingsActivityName=null
mIsDefaultResId=0x0
Service:
priority=0 preferredOrder=0 match=0x108000 specificIndex=-1 isDefault=false
ServiceInfo:
name=com.amazon.tv.ime.FireTVIME
packageName=com.amazon.tv.ime
enabled=true exported=true processName=com.amazon.tv.ime
permission=android.permission.BIND_INPUT_METHOD
flags=0x0
com.example.semitop7.FireTVStyle/.FireTVStyleIME:
mId=com.example.semitop7.FireTVStyle/.FireTVStyleIME mSettingsActivityName=null
mIsDefaultResId=0x0
Service:
priority=0 preferredOrder=0 match=0x108000 specificIndex=-1 isDefault=false
ServiceInfo:
name=com.example.semitop7.FireTVStyle/.FireTVStyleIME
packageName=com.example.semitop7.mydpadkeyboard
labelRes=0x7f07001d nonLocalizedLabel=null icon=0x0 banner=0x0
enabled=true exported=true processName=com.example.semitop7.mydpadkeyboard
permission=android.permission.BIND_INPUT_METHOD
flags=0x0

com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME - native keyboard Fire TV Stick
com.example.semitop7.FireTVStyle/.FireTVStyleIME - Keyboard Fire TV style keyboard
Now, we activate the keyboard and put it by default:
Code:
adb shell ime enable com.example.semitop7.FireTVStyle/.FireTVStyleIME
adb shell ime set com.example.semitop7.FireTVStyle/.FireTVStyleIME
To revert back to the native keyboard type:
Code:
adb shell ime set com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME

I am following your instructions to replace the keyboard (with Swiftkey). When I try and run the Enable command I get "Error Unknown ID: com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME"
Looks like the actual ID is com.amazon.tv.ime/ .FireTVIME

Not sure what to do now. Any ideas?

I'm not rooted Fire 2 5.2.1.1

I'm not rooted Fire 2 5.2.1.1

This ID is specified for example. He's on my Fire TV Stick. Most likely you he has a different ID. To see your ID:
Code:
adb shell ime list -a
- Pop up about such a list:
com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME:
mId=com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME mSettingsActivityName=null
mIsDefaultResId=0x0

See after the line mId=
For example on my Fire TV Stick:
com.amazon.tv.ime/.FireTVIME - native keyboard Fire TV Stick
com.example.semitop7.FireTVStyle/.FireTVStyleIME - Keyboard Fire TV style keyboard

You can also use this command:
Code:
adb shell ime list -s
But if the keyboard is install but not activated ID udet not shown by this team. So I recommend to use the first command
Code:
adb shell ime list -a
.

Write your output to a command terminal:
