Hi Guys,

I've created GUI app to easily sideload your apks to the FTV.... I will be updating it over time with extra bells and whistles.

Please be advised I do not take any responsibility if you root your device and it gets bricked.

The link below will direct you to the download page where you will find the app.



Download website link:

http://goo.gl/woVu0s

1. Unzip the folders to "C:\FTV"
2. Launch app "Amazon FireTV Utility App.exe"

I've only tested it on Win8, but should work on Win7 as well.

Enjoy

1. Unzip the folder to "C:\FTV"
2. Launch app "FTV Side App Installer.exe"
3. CMD will launch automatically and run the ADB commands.
4. Once its all done it will confirm "Success" in the CMD window.

I've only tested it on Win8, but should work on Win7.

Enjoy

P.S I don't take any credit for the adb.exe and dll files. Just the frontend GUI interface.

What did you code this in? VB?

If i could suggest something, You can code a radio button that says AutoPilot and another that says Llama where it would download the apk from the web or include them in your zip file. Autopilot allows to automatically boot into xbmc upon reboot and llama lets you change the home button action.

If you go the download apks on the fly route can you use this command line to download the files
bitsadmin.exe /transfer "AutoPilot" "https://diegomejia.globat.com/android/AutoPilot.apk" c:\FTV\Autopilot.apk

another suggestion is backing up folders on fire tv, for upgrading xbmc versions.

wondering how hard it would be to automatically detect the amazon fire tv IP. Either scan for a series of ports that are open on the FTV or you can say make sure the FTV is off, scan the network for all IPs then have the user power on the FTV and scan it again. Compare the IPs and if done correctly there should be an IP that appears on the second list thats not on the first. Sorry for all the requests i just think its cool what you did and know these features would mean alot
