I hereby discontinue support for my Fire TV Guides and Apps. I've been a big fan of Fire TV devices for the last 2-3 years, but Amazon has now with each firmware further limited the possibilities of a configurable Android environment and even destroyed standard Android commands. This goes too far for me now.

I can recommend the following devices to anyone who wants to have a reasonable and much better Android TV experience, which I now use myself and am enthusiastic about:
  • Mi Box
  • Mi Box S
  • Sony Android TV (ATV3 platform, eg. XF7, XF8, XF9 or higher)

There is no root option for Fire OS 6.x at the moment and probably there will be none in the future.

please write output of "adb shell pm list packages | grep google" and send me the gapps logs:
  • open_gapps_debug_logs.tar.gz
  • open_gapps_log.txt

To start an app use:
adb shell am start -n com.package.name/.MainActivity
You can find out the package names and activities with the App "Activities".

Example:
adb shell am start -n org.xbmc.kodi/.Splash
