i was wondering if nobody tryed to disable the original launcher with llama or automate.

I actually use FTVStick with llama and 1 rule.
If the "Handy" restarts, launch Appstarter.

When FireTV is Turned on, a few seconds after Booting up, llama start Appstarter.
I dont need the Original Amazon menu and want to disable it all the time.

The idea is, a rule like "if ktv-launcher is foreground start appstarter", and if i push the "Home" button on remote, Amazon launcher start, llama will recognized that and start Appstarter.
So i dont need to root.

My problem is, llama is very old and not supportet anymore.
So the Rule "app in foreground" doesnt work, and i need to switch to another tool.
On a FireHD10 Tab i used Automate and it works to use a alternative launcher.
Every time i press the Home button, the amazon launcher appear, and after 1-2 seconds automate starts another launcher.

The problem, i cant use Automate on FTVStick, because i need a touchscreen to configure the tool.

I hope, anybody can help creating a Automate flow with the options to check if ktv-launcher is the active app and start appstarter,
or give me a hint how to do my idea without a touchscreen.

I was able to control automate using a mouse and keyboard but I don’t think you can monitor for foreground applications without access to accessibility services. I hope you can get it to work though as I would love this!

I use Appstarter and Launcher Hijack, and followed the "Disable bloatware..." thread...
Amazon Launcher is not on my device, home button works flawlessly to return me to "Top TV Launcher 2" and it used to work for AppStarter when that was my main launcher.

@TimmyP many Thanks.

LauncherHijack works Perfect.
It doesnt Start Firestopper on Boot, but it catch the Home Button.

I use llama with the "On Boot" Rule and LauncherHijack for Home Button.

Thank You !
