Someone complained that it was a modded version of ATV Launcher so it was removed.

Another user was nice enough to repost it here:

Thank you man, I really needed this from a good source.

It's crazy that these untrustworthy YouTube guys are offering it up, without even giving SweenWolf credit.

I prefer to get the files from Wolf directly, but if that's not possible, you can ask people on this thread for the hash to confirm that any file from a secondary source is not altered.

Someone else had posted a link to the file on this thread that did not match the hash of the original file, and I'm not sure what the difference was, but the file was noticably bigger.

I can confirm that the MD5 Hash for Wolf Launcher 1.0.9

FS MAX running 7.2.5.5 LM FOS 1.1.3. Wolf launcher 1.0.9

When I change display mode in LM from 4k to 1080p, it works, but now I can no longer go back to 2160p. Only display modes listed are Auto and1080p and below. Selecting Auto does nothing.

(If I have a 4k TV, why would I set display mode to anything other than 4k, you may ask. Because most stuff I watch are 1080p and image quality is better if I let TV upscale to 4k rather than let the firestick do it. Of course when I do play 4k then I want firestick to output 4k)

Edit to add I am also seeing long boot time on fs MAX like several other users in this thread.

Have you tried temporarily disabling the custom launcher, going into the regular FireTV settings / display and switching the resolution back to 4k? This will give you an idea if the missing resolution is related to LM specifically, or a more general FireOS issue.

Right now only the 4k Max is on the newest FireOS7 version 7.2.5.5. Someone with a 4k Max will have to use something like Logcat to try to figure out what the OS is waiting on that is causing the boot delay. That would help in trying to find a fix.

I only have the 2nd gen Cube, and I don't think Wolf has the 4k Max.

I enabled stock launcher and set res back to Auto. Then back in LM, I switched to 1080p and nothing happened. Verified from my TV's info that it was still 4k. Rebooted. Now res was 1080p, and all res above 1080p gone as option. Changing to Auto did nothing. Rebooted and now in 4k and all res available. So it appears reboot is required for display mode change to take effect, and when current mode is 1080p, [email protected] and [email protected] are not present as options, only Auto

Another oddity is when I try to search in appstore, I get dumped right back to where I launched appstore from. This isn't specific to LM. I got this when I was using adb shell pm disable-user com.amazon.tv.launcher --user 0

What logcat do you need? I have adb working.

Hey guys, can the Launcher Manager make an app like Kodi the default launcher?

I have an Nvidia Shield TV Pro. The default launcher is ugly and infested with lame ads. Wolf Launcher only displays shortcuts without much content or widgets.

I've setup Kodi to have all Android app shortcuts and it lets you add lots of content widgets. I even tested it out a few months ago with some older tools & it worked perfectly as a launcher.

I like that the tools here are regularly updated, that's why I'm curious if they can work for this purpose.

It does let you select any app as launcher. However, this feature doesn't seem to be working on the firestick max. But the max is new and several things aren't working. YMMV

Hmmm...for my Shield Pro, I was told only the older "ATV" version of Launcher Manager works. So I downloaded that from the attachments.

When I ran it, I got the default Android pop up asking to choose a launcher/home screen. There were only two options: Wolf Launcher & maybe the Androud default.

I'm trying to reproduce the pop now by disabling the Launcher Manager & re-enabling it. But it now just defaults to Wolf Launcher everytime.

I'm not sure about the resolution switching. One thing that you might find more convenient is using the resolution switching shortcut on the remote. Press and hold [up] + [rewind] for 5-10sec.

Do you have a high end Sony? Is the upscaling on your TV really better than the Fire stick? I can't tell the difference between my Cube and my TV in terms of upscaling, but I'm not sitting close enough probably.

Regarding logcat, you would have to run it during the bootup process to see if there is any indication of what the system is waiting on. You may need to connect via USB if network access is not available on the stick during bootup.

If you disable wolf launcher, uninstall it, and try to enable launcher in the launcher manager, does it let you pick Kodi then?

The Launcher Manager ATV version is very weird.

If you uninstall Wolf Launcher...then enable Launcher Manager ATV...you only get two options in the home screen selection pop-up:
- Arc Browser (game collection app)
- TVUsage (security app)

So Kodi is not available as an option. And there's no way to select it from a list.

I wish it had some option that let you select your own app as a home screen launcher.

I am also seeing some issues with the ATV version of the LM (using v1.0.3).
On a recent new Google TV interface (TCL TV with official Google TV v11) the LM is not "catching" the Enable Custom Launcher command. It looks like it is trying to do something but fails.

@SweenWolf any ideas?
Thank you!

Looking back, it may be Launcher Manager Ultimate that let's you choose any app. Check out the second post on this thread, and see if that works for you:

You could try Launcher Manager Ultimate too to see if it works any better.

Yes! Launcher Manager Ultimate is the best solution for my Nvidia Shield Pro. I was able to set Kodi as the launcher.

Even when launching other apps, pressing the remote's home button returned to Kodi (as the new home).

I even "stress tested" by opening the Shield's task manager and exiting Kodi. What happened was that when the home had to be accessed again, it simply re-started the Kodi app.

Furthermore, if you read the text on the Launcher Manager Ultimate page, it explains how the app uses a layered process to make sure users can easily recover if anything goes wrong.

This covers all scenarios. What a great solution!

Thanks again Finnzz for responding to my posts - and SweenWolf for designing such a great and up-to-date solution!

Thinking about it, the Resolution menu in Launcher Manager is probably something written with ADB commands rather than by giving us a shortcut to the native menu. I just got a 4k capable TV and I was not right before. I see all the resolutions but as you said it doesn't trigger the TV to change when I select them. I'm also on FireOS7 like the Max. Requiring a reboot might be a difference between FireOS6 and FireOS7. Maybe there is a command to trigger a resolution switch without a reboot. Wolf may know.

You can use the remote shortcut to cycle resolutions ([up] + [reverse] for 5sec). It's a little bit of a hassle since you have to cycle through each resolution with a break in between.

I can say that the Amazon App Store search relies on the Amazon Launcher Manager, and won't work because it's disabled.

On FS MAX, SmartTubeNext stable will switch display mode to best match the resolution and refresh rate of whatever video you are playing. I verified this with system status monitor. So it IS possible, but perhaps with API calls, not adb.

I'm normally all for open source, but in the case of Launcher Manager, it's helping users avoid Amazon advertising, which I'm sure they are not positive about. Amazingly, Amazon hasn't patched FireOS to make LM unusable yet. They have killed older methods of enabling costum launchers in the past.

I don't doubt that the FireOS team is aware of LM and probably knows what loopholes it's exploiting to make it's magic happen. I'm assuming those loopholes haven't been closed because there is no easy way to close them without also restricting some of the capabilities that are important to regular FireTV users.

I worry that making LM open source will only help the FireOS team to bring an end to it faster.

There is another FireOS project here on XDA that leaves you with the Amazon Launcher but removes all the ads. That developer isn't even making his APK public because he's worried Amazon will patch against it immediately. It's just a very small closed beta.

It may be more reasonable to open source LM if FireOS does kill it in an update. At that point there is nothing to be lost to Amazon. And users will have to decide if they want to keep updates blocked to keep using LM, or update for whatever benefit it might bring and lose LM.

    ATV Launcher and Wolf Launcher both are dead.
    Why Kill them off? Even if they can't be used on Fire TVs they're still very capable Android TV launchers.

    Anyone know of some good widgets for Wolf launcher? that run without google play services...
    I can't even seem a weather one.
    thx :)
    I use yowindow but the one from techdoctoruk didn't qork for me so I went to my phone and installed the latest yowindow for free and the app transfer app that transfer your phones apps to your firestick.

    You install both of the apks below and make sure you have adb enables on your firestick and then connect to it through the app2fire app and make sure you allow it on your firestick and then you install the yowindow apk don't open it then transfer it to your firesrick from you phone using the app2fire app.

    Hi I brought a 4k max Last week and have been trying to see if I factory reset it ot would downgrade to an older firmware or would it stay with the one I installed
    No, factory resetting only clears data, it doesn't revert you to an earlier FireOS version. Downgrading is not possible. If you just got the Max last week and didn't mean to update it, return it and get a new one.

    Skipping updates during registration is pretty easy:

    Then block updates immediately once you are at the homescreen.

    I just noticed that com.amazon.tv.launcher apk shows as Leaks for me an actually opens a developer oriented utility. From that point of view, I guess LM 1.1.7 does show it, but for now, although the package is enabled, I cannot manually access the system's launcher. Any ideas?
    This will be fixed on next LM release

    LAUNCHER MANAGER ULTIMATE

    This app can disable Stock Launcher of Any Android TV (except anything running on Fireos 5), it requires Network Debugging to function.
    The way it works is it finds the stock launcher and disables it.
    It does that in a loop until "android" itself is set as default launcher.
    at this point if there are no Custom launchers are installed on the system then you will see only a black screen.
    So a custom launcher should be installed prior to enabling the custom launcher.

    some apps also broadcasts themselves as launcher and if they are installed as system app and are set as default launcher then it will also disable them.
    some launcher integrates settings in them so disabling the launcher will disable settings also.
    the apps who broadcasts themselves as Fallback home will not be disabled.

    There were certain cases where user uninstalled launcher and got blank screen, to mitigate that issue LMU will set itself as the launcher and call the other launchers on its behalf. so if the launcher is deleted then pressing the home button will launch LMU, from where you can disable custom launcher support.

    If it detects that after disabling everything it doesn't reach the "android" itself and is unable to find a launcher then it will rollback itself, enabling every single thing it disabled.

    Changes:
    1.0.8
    Fixed Settings Shortcut for Amazon Hud.
    Fixed Disabling of "Android"


    All other functionalities are similar to Launcher Manager from the First Post.

    This isn't a confidence-inspiring reply.

    I don't actually care if you took an abandoned app and updated it making it your own, but the second half of your reply is just unnecessarily confrontational.

    You could have just reassured me that your edits were safe, but you choose to be defensive instead.

    I think I'll remove your launcher and look for something via the Play Store.

    I've lost all confidence in Wolf Launcher.
    Look I'm gonna tell you and everyone what I've done with the launcher till now,
    I have changed the way it launches the app, on latest pro (any pro) it used to crash the apps.
    I fixed the title bar. I then optimized it for FireTV (not any other OS, which caused it to misbehave on some device) which i later fixed. Then some people were having trouble installing both ATV and Wolf simultanously. so i had to change package name which made me to change the launcher name also (that might have been wrong on my side). then i optimized the app once again for FireOS (it caused some freeze issue). Then to fix Setting of Amazon HUD (older version of FireOS), I had to add a code to handle settings (it only works on Amazon and no other device). I changed some sections to give user large wall (that was temporary fix). I removed some http links, but they are used either for update check or to change Network State in the launcher.
    Then i added "App Info" to the launcher, which i only added for non-system apps.
    Later i removed the large section mod and unlocked the widget for Firestick 4k.
    Then I added "Other Settings" which contained option to clear cache and Backup/ Restore function.
    i also added a code which starts the services of Launcher Manager (thats also mainly for FireOS and thats because of Boot Delay). I also added a stroke for tiles.
    thats all i have done to the apk. I have not done this mod to make any money, and i can assure you this app is safe to use. My only intention to mod this app was that this app was almost perfect and there was some bugs which i had to fix myself because the support of this launcher were down. And the only issue at that time was app crash for which i decided not to compile a launcher by myself. I am not forcing you to do anything, I am just clarifying myself, The apps which i have created are safe. and are to improve the user experience only.
    i do not like to or want to rip someone off. I started this mod for FireOS only and no other OS.
