The malformed PNGs isn't whats causing it as when removed it does not complain about them, but it does still throw an error about the public symbols not being defined.

Kinda sucks because this is the only reliable way to auto start kodi and map to home on rooted boxes

This is fixed in newer versions of apktool. Download the newest apktool and overwrite the apktool.jar in the resources folder (same file name).

I don't have an FTV2, but try this one out I just compiled.

Thanks for the reply!

It's been a while but it seems I get a new error.

Place the APK to be altered inside the 'in' folder, then press ENTER.

This happens as soon as I initially hit enter, it does not prompt me for the filename.

Thanks! I just got back from the holidays and about to test it out. I'll let you know how it goes. I have still yet to get launcher status on the firetv2 but LauncherHijacker shows it as such which is a good sign as thats how I have my firetv1 setup running 16.0. I dont want to mess with that setup as its working flawlessly, outside of some stutter on higher bitrate encodes.
