Things can be just so easy.

after trying a while with framework-res.apk i got rid of the usual black background in launcher by just setting
<bool name="config_enableWallpaperService">false</bool> to true in res\values\bools.xml

compiled it back and updated it via cwmrecovery zip installation :)
Also livewallpaper are working.

UPDATE: Thanx to @superkoal
Xposed Module

but u still need the files from next link to get them working:
Files in Post 3 klick

"Here are the files ex framework-res
http://ul.to/oqs87yb6 "

just installed live wallpaper picker and a few from original 4.2.2 rom.

now i only want to find a settings.apk, that is working completely.

one is only apps column working, and other apk. only the others, don't know how.

Sweet! Can you post your compiled file in a CWM installable zip?

http://uploaded.net/file/8awolkyk

just install via cwm. for sure do a backup before.
i'm not responsible if something went wrong, with this installation.
ALSO Do A BACKUP of your original Framework-res.apk!!!
Also don't forget to install Gallery.apk or livewallpaperpicker, else it is not possible to select any wallpaper.

so after a factory reset i wanted to try it again.
sems that i might have installed some other parts from another rom, like systemui.apk-

Here are the files ex framework-res
http://ul.to/oqs87yb6

after this, u might see the green background. Just start your favourite launcher and set any wallpaper u like.
Have fun

What is the difference between the two downloads? I downloaded the first one, but have to wait an hour before I can download the second one. Should I install the second one and not the first?

I'm having trouble installing this with CWM. I have my system and data mounted to an external drive and CWM doesn't access it. It keeps saying folder not found, then it reverts to what I assume is the original internal data folder on the FTV itself. I'm not sure how to access this internal folder now using a file explorer. Any thoughts that don't involve messing with unmounting my external drive?

**Edit** I manual replaced the framework-res.apk using root explorer, then realized I needed to install your second files as well and now it works prefectly! No more black background for me. I've got a spinning galaxy and stars!

Thanks for the work on this!

That are good news,
thanks for reply....

now i also got rid, of some amazon apps. now have around 127mb /system free storage.
removed ftvlauncher, whisperplay,gamecircle,demomode and a few other things with titanium backup.

also stock launcher switcher worked now when press homebutton. Can someone pm me a few aosp 4.2.2 stock files from settings app and from tablet? i get crashes in settings.apk maybe i have to install a few more stock apks, that don't come with aftv in stock.

btw. Tabletui is working with adb shell am display-density 240
settings.apk is in splitscreen (crashes in different accesses). played around with some themed xposed modules and lolipop theme.
will try the next weeks, till i got my setup finished ^-^

That is cool that you're testing the limits. Tonight I plan to make a video about my setup. I've used a lot of the various mods/tweaks available for the ATV and have a kick ass setup.

so just push the framework-res.apk to sdcard and replace it w/ the one in the system folder? because I did the install via cwm to no avail and I installed the 3 apks in the background.zip manually

be sure mount /system in cwm manual. should work, or replace it manually via fileexplorer and to be sure
chmod 644 /system/framework/framework-res.apk

and don't forget to have a backup via cwm to be safe...:)

I am curious what Amazon apps you've removed and what other mods you've done. Can you update what you've been up to with the FTV?

I only made a backup of all amazon apps, i might to remove, with titanium backup before i uninstalled them.

f.eg. amazon app store, circle, movie, mp3, photo (installed gallery2.apk from a 10.1 cm stock rom) installed clock.apk from rom to exchange amazon screensaver and replaced it with a clock. but i messed to much around, so i had to go back to my backup i generated with cw recovery :)

also deodexed apps and framework files to get a little more space on sys. also deleted files under vendor/amazon (here are the overlay-files stored.

sadly i'm out of time for this week to extend my tsteing in getting a full settings.apk working wich i had before i messed up while replacing all system apks from a cm 4.2.2 rom

That screenshot looks awesome! I want to try it when I have time. But I also noticed you have ROM manager installed. I never even thought about using it, probably because I have twrp on my other devices. How's it working for you? Are you able to use the stock remote?
That's a much better option than plugging in a USB keyboard every time you want to do something in recovery.

Took me a while to get it straight, but below are my simple instructions for us that aren't fluent in all things Android...


Download schybiorz's files from this thread.

http://uploaded.net/file/8awolkyk
http://ul.to/oqs87yb6

Extract "framework-res.apk" from the zip file in the first download above. Copy the "framework-res.apk" file to your FireTV. I used AGKFire.

Extract and install the apk's from the second download above. You can just click on them from ES File Explorer if you've pushed them, or use AGKFire or whichever method you use to sideload apps.

I also installed the "Gallery.apk" file, downloaded from the following thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1953999

Backup your FireTV "framework-res.apk" file. I used Root Explorer from the Play Store. Navigate to the /system/framework/ directory and copy "framework-res.apk" to your sdcard somewhere to save as a backup.

Connect to your FireTV using adb from your computer and type the following commands:

adb kill-server
adb start-server
adb connect [FireTV IP Address]
adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount /system
cp /sdcard/AGKFire/framework-res.apk /system/framework/framework-res.apk
chmod 644 /system/framework/framework-res.apk
exit
exit

Then, just reboot your FireTV. Take note, in the cp (copy) command above, the copy-from location (where I have AGKFire) needs to be where you have the apk file on your FireTV. So if you have it in the root of the sdcard, the command will be as follows:
cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework/framework-res.apk

I tried to flash schybiorz's zip file using cwm, but for some reason, it didn't replace the "framework-res.apk" file, which is why I did it manually as indicated above. I also didn't do a cwm backup, so proceed at your own risk.

I use Nova Launcher, so I have to use a mouse to pick wallpapers from LiveWallpaperPicker or the Gallery, but live and static wallpapers work wonderfully now though!

Needed this!!! Thanks for the detailed instructions, because I tried before using a mouse I copied the original framework-res.apk and put it in another folder, then pushed the downloaded framework-res.apk to sdcard...but got an error when copying the downloaded one. so now I guess I can just go ahead and run the command cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework/framework-res.apk and it will copy it?

You will have to enter the commands as I listed them...well, as far as I know. I did quite a bit of Googling. You must make the system directory writeable, which is the reason for the "mount -o rw,remount /system" command. Then, the chmod command sets the permissions once you have copie the modified framework over.

But I did just notice that someone made a xposed wallpaper enabler module in the 'FireTV Themes and Apps' forum. Which may be the better way to go...easier anyway.

Can we please upload them to a free web hosting? Uploaded.net while claiming it's free isn't. When ever you try to download a file via the "free" link, you get this:

The free download is currently not available - Please try again later! Premium account users are not affected by this temporary limitation.

Thing is, over the last 6 months to a year, that is the message you always get, doesn't matter the time of day.

So please do us cheap peeps a favor and put them on a free site.

thanks

You can also use any 4.2.2 wallpaper and live picker apk you want. no need for mine. but feel free to upload them on another hoster.
Important is the fact, that the wallpaper service is enabled in framework-res, wich is now easy done via xposed-module ^-^

Ya, but I can't download the framework-res file either, and while googling brings up may places that have the file, I do not know if they have the changes you did for the AFTV.

So if someone could be nice and upload the files to another file hosting site, i'd be thankful.

    I just followed aftvnews. "backgroundenabler" was not one of the apks. Closest i have is wallpaperenabler. So I can just set this to launch on boot from the nova settings?
    Is the aftvnews guide incomplete? I'm only just starting to mess around with this so any info you think might be useful would be great. Thanks And thanks for working on this it's really cool if I get it working like you did!

    aftv has a complete guide. Click

    if you follow it step by step then all should work. Everything is linked there
