    Post Remove /Bypass Lockscreen With Recovery

    Thanks OP! Found my old Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 in my closer after years of not using it. Decided to charge it up to play with it only to find it was locked to a pattern! Came across this thread via Google and it was EXACTLY what I needed. I already had TWRP installed from back then, so it was...

    Post [APK Request] All4, ITVHub, My5, RTÉ Player, 3Player, and TG4

    Yeah I can't believe there's still no proper All4 app for Android TV. So frustrating. I've been using the All4 (com.channel4.ondemand) app for a while now on my Shield, but wish there was a proper app to use. This version works with the a remote, but it's super clunky selecting stuff.

    Probably for a lot of them that would be enough, but some don't seem to work at all. Like that XUMO one seems to crash immediately. Also don't forget that not only do you need the amazon appstore installed but you need to also "own" the app as well. Hopefully JJ-KwiK can get some of them to...

    I ripped those apps and added them to my Mega.nz folder. They are unmodified, so if they need modification, maybe JJ-KwiK can help out with that. Grab them from here: https://mega.nz/fm/n1FyAQiI Edit: Decided to test them on my Shield unmodified to see how they work. Shudder - Runs fine...

    Well I got some good news. I booted up my Fire stick and grabbed the CBC Gem app. I then ripped it and sideloaded it to my Shield. Turns out there is no Amazon app store requirement and it works perfectly on the Shield. Even Android TV launcher compatible so you can place it on the home screen...

    An article on MobileSyrup says the CBC Gem app is supposed to come to "Fire TV and Android TV" on April 15th. Did Android TV get screwed or is it available somewhere for us? It's definitely not on the play store. https://mobilesyrup.com/2019/04/10/cbc-gem-amazon-fire-tv-android-tv/

    Thanks! Here's the tlc go app that I ripped from the fire stick a while back when I had it set to US region (I am in Canada). I don't know if this is the latest version, but hopefully it still works. https://www.dropbox.com/s/p21x85ojl3guznn/TLC%20GO%20%5B1.8.0%5D.apk?dl=1

    Is it possible you accidentally hit select on the remote and told it to install? I know when I turned on my one Shield tonight (7.1), it was presenting me with a "What's new in 7.2.1" full screen update menu. On the right side there was 2 options, to install or remind later. I believe by...

    Post The Ultimate AT&T TV and FIRE TV APK Repository

    Is there currently a working My5 app for the Shield that is meant for remote controls? I know the Fire TV version supposedly works if you have the amazon app store installed, but since I am in Canada, it doesn't allow me to "purchase" the My5 app because I am not in the UK. So I can't navigate...

    Post Third Party Remotes with Voice Search

    That remote uses Wifi Direct instead of Bluetooth. This new remote uses bluetooth, so you shouldn't have any issues with it not pairing. I use a fire stick remote on my Shield and it uses bluetooth and works perfectly. Never unpairs or gives me issues.

    This comment wont help you sadly, but it looks like the new Fire Stick 4K from Amazon have a Bravo Now app. In the past, people have been able to rip these apps from the Fire devices and modify them to remove the amazon requirements, so the app will run on the Shield. Hopefully someone can...

    Post Why do you have a rooted device?

    The files are located in /system/usr/keylayout You just need to find and open the .kl file that is used by the remote/controller you have plugged in.

    Post Why do you have a rooted device?

    Ridding yourself of ads is definitely a good reason, but I mainly rooted so I could edit the key layout (.kl) files for specific remotes. For example, I am using a Fire TV remote on my Shield. By default it has BACK, MENU, HOME, PLAY/PAUSE, REWIND, FAST FORWARD buttons. I personally don't...

After...

    twrp seems very finicky when it comes to screen issues. On my 4K TV it just shows up as no signal. On my 1080p TV it worked, but I briefly switched inputs to switch over to my PC because I forgot to copy over the supersu.zip file. Soon as I tried to switch back to the input with twrp, black...

    Post how do i remap amazon 4k remote centre button? as a select button for nvidia shield

    This should be fixed I think in the Oreo update. The remotes should now correctly send the DPAD_CENTER command when pressing select on the remote. I know it was fixed with the Alexa Voice Remote (Fire TV 2nd gen i think?). Voice button is still crap as it rarely works properly (activates the...
