Are there any activities missing that could still be included in the conFIREator?

Ideas?

-USB Debugging
-Apps from Unknown Sources

Thanks for the ideas. But this is not only possible with activities, you need a modified settings app for these commands (except for restarting, you need root privileges for this, or a corresponding authorized app).

Okay, let's see:
  • Restart Device -> Simple Reboot
  • turn on ADB/USB -> you have to install modified settings app from PlayFire as system app
  • Network Info (to look ip address from device) -> you have to install modified settings app from PlayFire as system app
  • System Info (to look Software version from device) -> you have to install modified settings app from PlayFire as system app
  • turn on unknown sources -> you have to install modified settings app from PlayFire as system app

Is there a tutorial on how to install an app as a system app? Or can you point me in the right direction.

For this you need root rights!

First you have to download the modified Android TV Settings app from PlayFire:
TvSettings.apk

Then copy the app into the system app folder and MUST restart your Fire TV to install it automatically.

Code:
adb push C:\TvSettings.apk /sdcard/
adb shell su -c mount -o remount,rw /system
adb shell su -c mkdir /system/priv-app/TvSettings
adb shell su -c chmod 755 /system/priv-app/TvSettings
adb shell su -c cp /sdcard/TvSettings.apk /system/priv-app/TvSettings/TvSettings.apk
adb shell su -c chmod 644 /system/priv-app/TvSettings/TvSettings.apk
adb shell su -c chown root:root /system/priv-app/TvSettings/TvSettings.apk
adb shell su -c mount -o remount,ro /system
adb shell su -c rm /sdcard/TvSettings.apk
