The working/non working sideloaded apps, accessories & modules thread for Root & Non-Rooted AFTV2

I'm starting this thread so that some of the new or regular users have somewhere to compare accessories/sideloaded apps & experiences with each other, please help each other & add any good compatible apps or xposed modules so we have a place to find new stuff for our Amazon Fire Tv 2. There will also be a working & non working section. Add any in the comments with some information (version numbers too if needed), & if there are problems with them? I will add them to the main front page (post1).

We can only operate this if we all work together so feel free to add any working or non working in the comments below.

PLEASE NOTE
I don't want any downloads to any wares (this is standard XDA rules) or links to apps In any form even google play store or amazon links too, the only exception to this is if you have a link for a guide on Xda forums to get the sideloaded app or accessories to work (not the download to any APK's!!!!).

I have noticed that you need to turn off usb debugging in the developer section otherwise the usb port will not function correctly on the AFTV2!!!!

Some apps also may need Root access, Google Apps (Gapps), Google Framework, Xposed & or Xposed modules to make them work & sometimes will require a reboot of the system, I will as & when add this information next to the apps when possible.

Posted this same thing, but only for accessories in the fire TV general section last week...

My xbox360 wired works just fine, FYI. I play naught 2 regularly using it. Only issue I've noticed is that the top bumpers do not register (white light doesn't blink when pressed), there is no menu button, and my mouse cursor disappears when the controller is plugged in...

Is it plugged into a hub? Or straight into the usb port at the back?

plugged into the hub, I'll go put it in direct and see if it registers... I'll just edit this post afterwards

Sorry, life happens..
Works fine direct connect, no difference I could detect.
I was wrong about one thing though, the top bumpers light the white led, the bottom triggers do not. However, the d pad and sticks don't light the led, but both work for navigation, so maybe they work in a game that uses them.

I did notice depressing the sticks (either) does the same as the green button (ok/enter), had not noticed that before.

I will try my boys unwired xbox 360 pad with the charge plug plugged in later & see if that works? Which hub are you using? I would like to add it to the working accessories section? Make & model number please If you don't mind? 👍

Guide to get the PS4 Controller working on the AFTV2


Ok so i saw this & copied the work around if you want to go to the original thread the link will be at the bottom of this page.

Here is what you have to do.
I had to pull out my windows install to run the SixAxisPairTool to get the PS4 controller to pair. There is a Mac version but no matter what I tried it kept saying there were no controllers on the USB bus.
In the ADB shell you need to pull the Bluetooth MAC address from your FireTV Stick using this command:
$ settings get secure bluetooth_address
Take that value and plug it in to the tool and then you will be paired.
To get the controller to work with the PS4 again is as simple as plugging it in via USB to the PS4.
It's not quick to swap back and forth as you need to rerun the pair tool to get the controller to work with the fire tv again.

The original thread is here (look at post 4 for the guide)-
http://forum.xda-developers.com/fire...iretv-t3250644

Make sure you give him thanks on his thread if this works for you.
