Hi!

This is an xposed module that enables the wallpaper service on the amazon firetv1 (not compatible with AFTV2 atm).
It is based on the findings of @schybiorz, so many thanks to him!

You will also need to sideload following apk files from his thread's download:
com.android.systemui
com.android.wallpaper.apk
com.android.wallpaper.livepicker.apk (optional if you want some live wallpapers)

Link to the thread

I tested it with NovaLauncher and both images and live wallpapers work fine.
Also widgets work fine now!

(updated with systemui package also being mandatory)

Atm this is NOT compatible with FTV2 devices, as it would require different apk files.
I will update this if someone mods them accordingly.

Have fun!

You should post a link to the background apks I was confused which link it was took me like 5 min to figure out lol.

You should still provide his link so if he gets any $$ from downloads he won't lose nothing.

It also does not work on my FireTV followed the instrcutions,sideloaded all 3 apks, tried 2 different launchers. I can select live wallpaper but it just won't load (regular wallpaper works fine) so something is wrong. Any idea what it is?

@patt2k

no problem, cause his xposed-module is only the tool, to edit framework-res on the fly (no need to install via cwm anymore ^-^

u still need the other files mentioned in my post.

Happy backgrounding to @LL ^-^

I can't get live wallpapers to work at all without CWM. When I select it it does nothing but I was able to change regular wallpaper which is still great

any ideas on how to fix it?

@schybiorz @superkoal I can make a video if you guys want to see what I mean.

Yea i did from your uploaded link. So I can't use any live wallpaper I want ? Even the nexus wallpaper does not work.

It's weird I did install.. I even did twice to make sure it's installed. What else can I try ?

You can try to make the wallpaper.apk a system app (move it from /data/app to /system/app and reboot).
Might be necessary, haven't tried without it.

Link2sd can do it so I will use it for that. You mean any live wallpaper I want to use make it system app right?
