Leanback for Fire on Fire Stick 4K
Install test but not usable - Build steps for Leanback Launcher for Fire on Fire Stick 4K


Initial preparation (done from macOS)....


From terminal.....

Code:
brew install gradle
brew install maven
brew cask install android-platform-tools
brew cask install android-sdk
Download alpha2 repository as ZIP, then extract
Download alpha3 repository as ZIP, then extract

Remove from alpha3 extracted directory.....
  • com.google.android.leanbacklauncher_1.11.2-100-4443508-1011102100_minAPI21(nodpi)_apkmirror.com (2).apk
  • com.google.android.leanbacklauncher_1.11.2-100-4443508-1011102100_minAPI21(nodpi)_apkmirror.com (2)-dex2jar.jar

Copy Android.mk from alpha2 directory into alpha3.....

From terminal.....

Code:
export ANDROID_HOME="/usr/local/share/android-sdk"
sdkmanager –licences
cd /alpha3/path/goes/here/
./gradlew tasks
./gradlew assembleDebug
Code:
adb kill-server
adb connect x.x.x.x
adb devices
adb install /alpha3/path/goes/here/app/build/outputs/apk/debug/app-debug.apk
#adb logcat com.rockon999.android.leanbacklauncher:V

Perform crude workarounds for errors....


ERROR 1

On TV: “Cannot Open App – The installed version of Leanback Launcher cannot be opened. Please check for an available update on your library”.

On adb logcat (altered due to first posts rule): Could not find a launchable intent

Edit app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml to include <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/> prior to HOME and DEFAULT to the code below....


ERROR 2

On TV: Brief flash of Launcher for 1 second, then auto-close

On adb logcat (altered due to first post rule): WallpaperService not running, FATAL EXCEPTION: AsyncTask #2

Edit WallpaperInstaller.java crudely on the installWallpaper method with return; only



Have not currently identified which Play Services to sideload for Fire OS 6.2.5.8 (Android 7.1 Nougat), these appear to be:

Google Play Store (Android TV)

Don't think so as last commit on alpha 3 was 10 months ago.
