Anyone having issues on moto phones, Can you please, try the attached moto version.




I have created this little android app for my own use. The main purpose of this app is to install any app that is on you android phone/tablet to FireTV/stick. All you need is the adb turned on your FireTV/Stick and Allow installing apps from unknown sources.

Here are steps copied from Amazon
Turn on ADB Debugging

You must enable ADB on the Fire TV device before you can connect to the device.


From the main (Launcher) screen, select Settings.
Select System > Developer Options.
Select ADB Debugging.
Get the IP Address

You need the IP address of your Fire TV device on your network to connect ADB to it.

From the main (Launcher) screen, select Settings.
Select System > About > Network. Make note of the IP address listed on this screen.

Now Just open the AGK fire app attached below, enter you FireTV/Stick IP Address and select the app you want to install on your FireTV/Stick.

Credits goes to alexjlockwood for "https://github.com/alexjlockwood/AppListLoader" which is the backbone for my app.
Also Thanks to all the wonderful tutorials on android app development on the web.

Any Suggestions are welcome. I will try to address as soon as I can.

I don't know how many people tried this app and felt it to be useful, but I am posting a new Version of this app. One small request if you use the app, please post a comment , any comment greatly appreciated.

It should work. I haven't tested any. I have fire stick only. Any device that has adb over network turned on should work.

I think ADT-1 uses port 4321 so when you set your ipaddress add :4321 to the end of it. Thanks for testing.

Can't get it working
I have enabled adb and install of unknown apps, but no apps are installing to My Fire TV. When I select an app to install, I see a window pop up very briefly that says "Installing app", but then nothing.
