You need to place the file in a pre-existing installation. Meaning if you have Toolbox V14.2 installed you need to place the micropatch in that directory. Default path for installations is: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Datastream\Fire Toolbox Vx.x\

Where the x's above represents the toolbox version (example 14.2)
That worked, thanks so much!!! 🎶

Can another person confirm if the micropatch works as well? Just making sure before putting out the new build. (after fixing the Updater of course)

Micropatch out 🤞
I've tried 14.3 and it worked (downloaded the "PlayServices-9.0_x32.7z") and installed the apps, but while cleaning up, the toolbox deleted the file "GoogleServices.7z", so on my second tablet, installation failed.
I was able to reinstall the toolbox (which restored "GoogleServices.7z") and install the Google apps on the second tablet, but observed the same file deletion happening.
Looks like something's off in your cleanup logic.

Other than that, good work!

One step at a time I suppose. Thank for bringing this to my attention, and I'll be sure to look into it. :D
 
@Datastream33 I wanted to do a double thank you for putting this Toolbox together. Double because after I used it to set up a tablet for my three year old great-grandson, I went in and ran it on a Fire HD 10 that I'd set up myself and had been using for a year, and danged if I wasn't able to get rid of Launcher Hijack and a bunch of other stuff I wasn't crazy about and add in a few more hacks I didn't even know about before.

Keep up the good work!

Why, thank you so much! It overjoys me to hear that you're enjoying the Toolbox and what it has to offer! Thanks for taking the time to share your appreciation, it really does mean the world to me! :D

Not a big deal, but I've been using the downgraded launcher, with Lawnchair2 launcher and I have to double tap the home key to actually get to the home screen. The first tap tries to bring the home screen up, but the current app comes back immediately, would be even better if the first tap brought the home screen up straightaway.

Great program either way.

I think maybe Datastream33 should include a note about disabling OTA updates either in his first post or in the Toolbox itself. Every time Amazon pushes an update, everybody who didn't disable OTA updates flocks to the forums and complains that they had to run the Toolbox again.
Using v14.0 just downloaded this morning that shows build date today (4/8 12:22am)

OTA Updates will not disable. Automatic updates are disabled, OTA Updates stay stuck on Enabled even after clicking it - no error message.

I did test on the tablet, and check now says "No updates found" so it is indeed still enabled.

HD 8 (2020), 7.3.1.8 (it looks like this firmware version may no longer work for OTA disabling? if so, suggest adding that to the instructions and/or tool text)

I can't seem to debloat/hide any of the Amazon apps. I tried Complete Debloat, Standard, and manually hiding an app, but the Amazon apps are still there in the launcher.

I'm using Fire HD 8 Plus (10th gen), 7.3.1.7

Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!

I am very happy to report that based on the latest release (V14.x) that I am able to successfully uninstall and then reinstall/update Google Play Store on 2 devices -
has been keeping my/our devices as current as possible, was done via V13.1 before

2019 HD10 went from Play Store 24.6.31-32/PR34955343 to 24.7.20-21/PR366188017

2020 HD8 (on Fire OS 7.3.1.3) as well, and it just patched and undated Play Store, without having to manually uninstall and then reinstall. It recognized that the latest has been downloaded, simply went to "Extract" and then INstall Play Framework, then Play Services, install Account Manager and then finally install Play Store (same changes as above). Then, it launched Google Play Store with message to wait about 10 minutes before signing in ... and, just like HD10 - had a few Apps to update. Reboot devices and it is all good.

Still has a 3rd HD8 sitting here on the side, going to do that later - just so to have a baseline & reference point to go/fall back to, in case of errors or someone need a bit of help to check.


BTW, on a different & side note/off topic - I toss the towel in on the rooted/BL unlocked 2017 HD8 / Gen 7 - traded it back to Amazon for the much newer HD10 with the price dropped down to $95 + tax. Got an instant credit of $20 in Gift Card value and mailed in the old HD8, factory reset & put the original firmware on it - got $19 on the 20% allowance ... with another $3 bonus Gift card value elsewhere - my net cost came to about $56 with tax. It's a nice deal - almost 2/3 off its original "full" selling price. Got a decent case to protect it and with the Toolbox kit - it is all good, faster & more responsive; and, I can sideload and run more apps. HD8 2017 running Android 5 and even with newer/better custom Rom, just too far behind & struggled to keep up - Android 9 customized for the newer HD8's and 10's are better, superior and more responsive.

Again, Datastream33 - with sincere appreciation and mucho thank you for tackling the challenges to make Amazon's Android life experience for end users like us a breeze !

Since the tool was broken yesterday, I used v13.1. Now how can I update? the button shows 'Google services (manage)' instead of 'Google services (install)' What have you done?

    apology first if this is off topics. after i use firetool on my system, i notice two unknown icons on my screen. I have done search but could find nothing relevant. i hope someone can shed me light on these two. One pops up once in a while on top right of system notification. it shapes like a compass arrow and only appears for a few seconds and gone. A typical navbar layout only have 3 icons: left arrow, home button and an apps view button but mine has an extra one on the bottom left corner. it shapes like a house and inside have two toggles, left one pointing up and right pointing down. i click on it but see no visible changes. no idea what it is
    Can you share a screenshot of the unknown icons, the house icon on the navbar is for amazon smart devices the reason its not working for you is because the toolbox disabled it, I believe you can disable the navbar via the toolbox and use a third party one if the house icon bothers you that much.

    On most tablets, you have the option to choose "none" when choosing the method to unlock the lock screen. Then you can then turn the screen off and on without seeing the lock screen at all. Is there anyway to accomplish this on the HD 10 9th?
    That option has just been added to the Toolbox V14. It's under Lockscreen Management, and it's the third option - Disable Lockscreen.

    How's it going guys?

    I sincerely hope everyone is having a great Sunday so far and you continue to have a blessed day!

    Excitingly, version 13.0 of the Fire Toolbox has been launched. When it comes to this update, I have to say it might be one of my favorites! So let's dive deeper and see what V13 brings to the table!

    The Return of Themes!​

    In the batch version, theming support was added in V2.0 and it kind of makes me laugh with the realization that it took this long for the .vbs version to obtain theming support. All be it, it was a little more difficult so I guess that's why? Anyways, unlike its batch counter part, not all themes are there. Currently the Toolbox supports the Terminal (the theme you know and love) and the Classic Blue (the OG theme from batch Toolbox) themes. More themes are planned to be added in the future, and I'm even thinking about letting the user create a custom theme but we will see. When you first launch V13.0 you will be asked to set a theme and from here you can select what theme you prefer. Furthermore, if you'd like to change the theme down the road you can do so from the Theme category in the Settings. I hope this spices things up a little bit!

    Modify System Settings and the New System UI Subtool.​

    Introducing a new subtool for the Modify System Settings tool. This subtool is designed to manipulate certain aspects of the System UI such as the system clock, Power Notifications, Do Not Disturb, etc. Its also important to note that the Navigation Bar option has been removed from the General subtool and added to the System UI subtool instead. I've also taken the liberty of optimizing the code for both subtools. However, please note the System UI subtool is designed for generations 8 and above (simply because it changes strings that don't exist in previous gens), but don't worry... gens 7 and below can still modify the Navigation Bar as usual. Hey, while your in the Modify System Settings tool don't forget to check out the new switches that replaced the boring old buttons.

    Sideload Apps: Installing to new users and presenting error codes​

    You know, if only we could find a way for users to stick after reboots. If you aren't aware, one of the tools in the Toolbox that is designed to create and manage users is the User Management tool (self explanatory i suppose and you probably worked out what the tool does but i digress). You may be wondering... "what does the User Management tool have to do with the Sideload Apps tool?" well you'd be asking a legitimate question and I suppose I should get to the point! Well, in this update the ability to install apps to different users (other then the default user like in the past) has been added. However, It's unfortunate because users created by the User Management tool simply are deleted after a restart... meaning this addition of sideloading apps to others users doesn't have a use quite yet. However, Installing to Toolbox created users, and Freetime users are all in the works and this addition is just a step closer... but we will see if either of these solutions are doable to begin with.

    In addition, the tool has been reworked and as a result, error codes are now able to be produced in the event of a failed installation. Meaning, when an install fails you will now see the reason why and can act accordingly. I will admit though, this probably should of been added a long time ago but hey what can you do?


    Wait, that's not everything this update has to offer! Please take a look at the changelog below for further details!
    Changelog (V13.0)

    • Themes: Reintroduced themes and added theming engine.
    • Settings: Added the "Classic Blue" theme.
    • Startup: On first run, the user is now given the oppertunity to select a theme.
    • Startup: Checking for updates will now occur even if there is no Fire tablet connected.
    • Modify System Settings: Replaced buttons with switches.
    • Sideload Apps: Sideload error codes are now displayed when a sideload fails.
    • Sideload Apps: Added ability to install apps to other users.
    • Modify System Settings: Added System UI subtool.
    • Modify System Settings: Moved Navigation Bar from General to System UI.
    • TBShell: Updated to include recently added settings.

    Don't have V13.0 installed yet? What are you waiting for? I'd recommend installing V13.0 directly from V12.1's Updater, simply because not only will it save you time, but it will also save you storage! If for some reason you don't have V12.1 installed you can download Toolbox V13.0 from the Downloads section of the OP!

    Traditionally, its time for my favorite part of the update process... letting you guys know just how much I appreciate how awesome this community is, the wonderful support you show me and each other, and the amazing folks who've helped me out with a warm pot of joe! THANK YOU so much for everything and I truly feel honored to be able to be a part of this amazing community and to meet such fantastic people! All of this is what keeps the project going!

    Well, I believe I've gone on long enough! I hope you guys enjoy the new update and until next time... Peace! :D

    How's it going everyone? I hope you all are having a great Easter Sunday so far!

    Let's talk about today's release, and check out the most noteworthy changes in detail! Without further ado, let's get into it!

    Google Services Rework​

    Ah, the Google Services tool. A tool that massively needed a rework!

    I originally thought that all Google Services would update themselves in the background, and it seems that I couldn't have been more wrong. I soon realized that only the Play Store would update itself, while the remaining services stayed at their installed versions. This was a problem because In previous versions, the Toolbox would install services targeted at Android Lollipop. This meant if you were using a 10th gen device you were running outdated versions of Play Services... which could result in some interesting effects. One of these side effects being the inability to install purchased apps and use in app purchases.

    The rework now takes all of this into account. So, instead of sideloading the Lollipop apks like in the past... it downloads the correct Play Services targeted at your tablet's Android version and installs them. This ensures you are running services designed around your Android version. In addition, I'm also happy to announce that this also results in app purchases being restored, and purchased apps being downloadable without needing to install Play Games on your tablet. I'd also recommend those who have already installed Play Services with a previous version of the Toolbox, uninstall and re-install Play Services using Toolbox V14.0.

    Automate - Premium (In-app purchase)

    Toolbox Updater Upgrade​

    When releasing the micropatch for V13.0 not too long ago I soon realized another (i know, i know you are probably tired of me complaining about the Updater not being perfect) issue that was in fact, effecting the way updates are pushed out. I soon realized that it was either the micropatch or the update, as the Updater wasn't capable of handling both at the same time. Meaning, if a micropatch was pushed out... it would overwrite the update and prevent folks who haven''t downloaded it from doing so... as the micropatch would show up instead.
    Well in V14.0 this issue has been resolved and the Updater is now capable of handling both Updates and Micropatches at the same time!

    The New and Improved Welcome Tour!​

    I've decided it was time to update the Welcome Tour and give it a more impactful approach. Instead of living in the Welcome Screen, it will now display before the Welcome Screen and guide the user through the UI using a more unique method (you'll have to see it for yourself to understand what I mean). I'm just hoping this tour helps new users understand the Ui more easier then the previous one, and plus, I gotta say its kind of fun to play around with!

    Reduced File Sizes​

    Yeah, you read that right! The main goal of this update was to try and reduce the overall storage taken up by the Toolbox and it's files and I have to say... I think that goal was reached!

    Installation File:
    • Before: 321.50 MB
    • After: 115.70 MB
    Archived Version:
    • Before: 370 MB
    • After: 145 MB
    Toolbox Installation (installed/unarchived)
    • Toolbox V13.1 and below: 500 MB
    • Toolbox V14.0: 215 MB

    Toolbox Web Browser:​

    In this update, the browser has been updated to allow resizing of the window! This should help with those websites that just need a little more space (*cough* ApkPure *cough*). In addition, the bug causing the "Loading Webpage..." message to appear even after the webpage is fully loaded has been squashed! Hopefully these changes makes using the Toolbox's browser a more enjoyable experience!


    Wait, that's not everything this update has to offer! Please take a look at the changelog below for further details!
    Fire Toolbox V14.0 - Changelog

    • Toolbox Updater: Rewritten from the ground up for better performance,reliability, and update detection.
    • Toolbox Updater: Micropatches and updates are now seperated, and managed independently.
    • Push and Pull: Added additional details to the pulling/pushing prompt.
    • Google Services: Reworked and improved.
    • Google Services: The correct Play Service file(s) relating to your tablet's Android version are now downloaded and installed.
    • Welcome Tour: Reworked and improved the tour and its UI.
    • Modify System Settings: Removed the category selection on launch, and replaced it with a tabbed system.
    • Toolbox Webbrowser: The window is now scalable.
    • Toolbox Webbrowser: Fixed the "Loading Webpage..." message being visible after the webpage has finished loading.

    Haven't downloaded V14.0 yet? Head on over to the Downloads section of the OP and get you V14.0!

    I want to thank you guys SO MUCH for sticking around, showing your support, downloading and using the Toolbox, supporting the project with donations, and just being all around great people! As I've always stated, it's what keeps this lovely project going! :D

    Well, that's all I've got for now and until next time guys... Peace!
    6
    Alright, that was quite painful!

    Anyways, upon opening the Toolbox, you should see an update in the Toolbox Updater. I had to push the micropatch through the update channel in order to add a key directory to the Google Services folder. As mentioned in the changelog DO NOT install this "update" unless you already have V14.0 (or V14.1) installed.

    I made some key changes and reworked the download process. Please try it now and let me know how it goes! I'm seriously hoping this solves the issues as that took quite a bit a time, and I want to apologize for that. Anyways... 🤞

    What is the Fire Toolbox?


    The FIre Toolbox is a collection of useful tweaks that can be applied to Amazon's Fire Tablets. The Toolbox aims to turn a stock Amazon Tablet into what the user wants it to be, and to enhance the Android experience. The project aims to help users who are less tech-savy, or those who want an easy, reliable, and fast method take full control over their devices without having to run the risk of rooting their tablets. With a clickable UI, and lightning-fast performance you can return the power back into your hands.

    Device Compatibility:
    • Amazon Fire 8/8+ (2020)
    • Amazon Fire 10 (2019)
    • Amazon Fire 7 (2019)
    • Amazon Fire 8 (2018)
    • Amazon Fire 10 (2017)
    • Amazon Fire 8 (2017)
    • Amazon Fire 7 (2017)
    • Amazon Fire HD8 (2016)
    • Amazon Fire HD10 (2015)
    • Amazon Fire HD8 (2015)
    • Amazon Fire HD7 (2015)
    • Amazon Fire HD7 (2014)
    • Amazon Fire HD6 (2014)
    In this forum, you may hear the word "generation" being used when talking about Fire Tablets. Just know that "generation" effectively means the same as "what year was the tablet manufactured?". This may seem confusing and as a result a reference table has been provided for you below.

    screenshot-2020-12-15-174539-jpg.5158661

    Getting Started:


    Getting the Toolbox up and running with your tablet is surprisingly a very easy procedure. The only thing required is for you to enable Developer Options and ADB on your tablet. So, without further ado, let's get started.

    At this point, please read the section below, and make sure to follow the correct guide that is made for your tablet on how to set up the device so it works with the Toolbox.

    FIRE HD 7, 8, 10 (2018 - 2020) Guide:

    1. Turn on your tablet and go to Settings > Device Options > About Fire Tablet and tap on the Serial Number until you unlock Developer Options.

    2. Press the back button and find the new Developer Options and toggle it on.

    3. Scroll down till you find USB Debugging and enable it.

    4. Download the latest version of the Toolbox from the Downloads section of this page and install it onto your PC.

    5. *Plug your tablet into your computer and allow Windows to install the necessary drivers (if you haven't done so already).

    * If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the drivers for "Fire" WILL FAIL. This is normal and is to be expected.

    6. Open the Toolbox and wait for it to setup the environment and start ADB (It may appear that the Toolbox is frozen, just please give it a second).

    7. If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the Toolbox will inform you that additional driver setup is required and will ask for your permission to download and install the required drivers. Click the "Yes" button, wait for the download to finish and follow the driver setup. If this for some reason doesn't work, please follow this guide to manually install the drivers.

    8. At this point, If drivers are setup properly... the Toolbox will inform you that the "device isn't authorized. Please authorize your device now."

    9. On your tablet, you should see a new prompt asking if you want to Allow USB Debugging and should show the computer's RSA key fingerprint. Tick the box that says "Always allow from the computer" and hit ok.

    That's it, the Toolbox should recognize your tablet and will take you to the main menu. Enjoy!




    FIRE HD 6, 7, 8, 10 (2014 - 2017) Guide:

    1. Turn on your tablet and go to Settings > Device Options and tap on the Serial Number until you unlock Developer Options.

    2. Find the new Developer Options and tap on it.

    3. Scroll down till you find Enable ADB and enable it.

    4. Download the latest version of the Toolbox from the Downloads section of this page and install it onto your PC.

    5. *Plug your tablet into your computer and allow Windows to install the necessary drivers (if you haven't done so already).

    * If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the drivers for "Fire" WILL FAIL. This is normal and is to be expected.


    6. Open the Toolbox and wait for it to setup the environment and start ADB (It may appear that the Toolbox is frozen, just please give it a second).

    7. If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the Toolbox will inform you that additional driver setup is required and will ask for your permission to download and install the required drivers. Click the "Yes" button, wait for the download to finish and follow the driver setup. If this for some reason doesn't work, please follow this guide to manually install the drivers.

    8. At this point, If drivers are setup properly... the Toolbox will inform you that the "device isn't authorized. Please authorize your device now."

    9. On your tablet, you should see a new prompt asking if you want to Allow USB Debugging and should show the computer's RSA key fingerprint. Tick the box that says "Always allow from the computer" and hit ok.

    That's it, the Toolbox should recognize your tablet and will take you to the main menu. Enjoy!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    » I don't see my tablet listed in the supported devices, how can I request support to be added?

    * For the requested tablet to be supported, we need a little more information from you in order to add support. Please download this .zip file, extract the folder within the zip to the desktop, and run the Identify.bat (make sure your tablet is plugged into the PC) file to get the code name of the device. Once the code name is found by the tool, press any key to copy it to the clipboard. Now reply to the forum with the code name, and the tablet's complete name. See the example below for reference:
    Tablet: Amazon Fire HD8 (2018)
    Device's Codename: karnak

    * Please note that any devices produced before 5th generation unfortunately cannot receive support. I'd recommend visiting the forum for your device and rooting if possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    » What does the error "one of more ADB enabled devices are connected. please remove all devices except a supported amazon fire device." mean?
    This error occurs when more then one ADB enabled devices are connected to your computer. Because multiple devices are connected, the Toolbox isn't sure which device to send the commands to so it simply closes and asks that you remove all ADB devices except the Fire Tablet. You may see the following terms being used in the PLUGGED IN list the Toolbox provides:
    Code:
    G0W0xxxxxxxxxxxxx
    This is likely your Amazon Fire Tablet. Furthermore, any connected device connected via a usb cable to your computer will likely be a single string (such as the one shown above) and will not contain any special characters.
    Code:
    emulator-xxxx
    This likely means an Android emulator is running on your system. Ensure programs like Bluestcks, Nox, Android Studio, Genymotion, LDPlayer, Virtualbox (emulating android), etc aren't running in the background while attempting to use the Toolbox.
    Code:
    192.168.0.xx
    This means a device is connected to your computer via TCP/IP (wireless debugging) and has ADB debugging (USB Debugging) enabled. Ensure all devices that run Android in your household are either disconnected from the network temporary, or ADB Debugging (USB Debugging) is disabled. Examples of Android devices that may have ADB enabled: Fire TV, Android TV, phones, tablets, etc.

    » How can I remove a Google Account from my tablet?
    Because of the missing accounts section in the Settings app it will be a little more difficult to remove Google Accounts directly from the tablet. The easiest way that I've found is to visit this page: https://myaccount.google.com/security, sign-in to your Google Account, scroll down to "Your Devices" and click the "Manage devices" button. From the list of devices find your tablet and in the upper right-corner click the 3-dot icon and from the list select "Sign out".

    » How can I run the Toolbox on Linux?
    As of now the Toolbox will not run on Linux natively. However, the Toolbox is being completely re-written in Visual Basic and will hopefully be able to be ran on Linux in the near future. At the moment, the best way to run the Toolbox on Linux is to use VMWare and emulate Windows.

    » Will this tool root my tablet?
    Unfortunately, the Toolbox is not yet capable of rooting any of the supported devices. There are plans to include root methods for a few select tablets but will take some time before they are ready.

    » Why is the Toolbox being marked as a virus?
    The Toolbox (and it's installer) isn't signed with a software license and therefore your computer isn't sure who the publisher is which may worry some anti-viruses, effectively producing a false positive that flags the Toolbox as a virus. The same issue goes for Windows smart screen as well. As always, I take your security and privacy VERY seriously! If you do not feel safe with installing the Toolbox due to virus concerns, I respect and support your decision. It is always up to the user and their judgment! :D

    » Where did the Changelog go?
    Due to the changelog's length it has been given its own post entirely. You can find it here.

    » I found a bug/issue in the Toolbox, how do I report it?
    You may leave a post on this forum. Please include the error/issue and possible ways to replicate it, then copy down the error information (if the Toolbox presents any) and paste it as a post here on the forum. If you could also share a screenshot or video that would also help greatly. In addition, please make sure to also include what tablet you have and what tool the error is coming from and I will do my best to fix it ASAP. Thanks!

    Amazon Fire Toolbox Meets VB.NET

    New Year, New Language, New Toolbox

    Toolbox-VB.png

    What's up guys?

    First off I want to say that this will be quite the lengthy post. Please bare with me.

    If you aren't aware, today is a very special occasion. Today marks the 1-year anniversary of the Amazon Fire Toolbox! :victory:

    Let's go back in time to the very beginning and see how the Amazon Fire Toolbox was first developed.

    It all started with this post. The removal of ads from the lock screen on all Fire devices. A simple string located in the Android Settings Database governing the lock screen ads was all it took. At that point, I knew what I had found was very important and thus shared it with the XDA community. However, some commands were needed to run and a few permissions for Automate were required to get things up and running. I've always strived to make things as easy as possible. So I sought after creating a batch file complete with a UI and everything... just to automate the permission granting, and automate installation so less tech-savy people could run the adblocker with ease. So, I fired up Notepad and began to write out this script. While I was doing this I decided to see what other things I could tweak on the tablet. So, I began to change things... "What if I could automate the installation of Google Services?", "what if I could automate this... what about this... perhaps this"? and on and on. At this point, I realized I could make the automation script for the adblocker something even bigger.

    As a result, I scrapped the automation script I already had and began to develop what I called "The Amazon Fire Toolbox". An all-in-one tool for Fire Tablets that could put the control back in the user's hands. The community over here on XDA reacted quite positive about it and encouraged me to keep going... to make it better. Because of you all is the reason why the Toolbox is as expansive as it is today. You guys made it happen!

    Release after release the Toolbox grew, and so did its impact. Today we are on Version 6.5 and so many new features have seen the light of day. it's just so crazy to think that this small project has gotten this big. Sure, we've suffered through some hard times, with a few features not working, the Toolbox being marked unfairly as a virus, and just things, in general, were broken... but you guys stuck with me through it all and I want to say thank you!

    Now here is where things are taking a turn for 2020. The Toolbox will now be shifted over from the batch programming language to VB.NET! I'm hoping with this transition the Toolbox will thrive even more. My reason for doing this is because like a gentleman here on XDA pointed out... the Toolbox deserves so much more. In addition, the Toolbox will run on PCs that aren't running English (this time you don't need to do anything special to get it to work), I'm planning on coding it in such a way that the Toolbox may be able to run under Linux using Wine, and best of all, because the UI is made in Visual Basic we no longer need the button injector, therefore, the Toolbox shouldn't alarm AVs any longer.

    Now, please note that the Toolbox is still being developed and a lot of features aren't present. However, I will be releasing an installer here on XDA that will allow you to install the VB version of the Toolbox and check out what is/isn't working all for evaluation purposes. When the Toolbox is stable and finished I will release it here on XDA for download.

    See how the Toolbox has grown since launch:

    What do you guys think about this? Is it a step in the right direction? What would you like to see in the new version of the Toolbox? Please share your thoughts with me, I'd love to hear them!

    HERES TO A HAPPY 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE TOOLBOX!

    [UPDATE]Amazon Fire Toolbox V7.2

    What's up guys? I hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday so far and you are safe and healthy!

    Firstly, I want to give thanks to all of you who have been so patient with me and I also want to give a huge thanks to those of you who wished me luck on the cert exam. I'm happy to say that I passed and am now MTA network certified! Thanks so much for all the support! :D

    Now brace yourself! It's gonna be a long post! :p

    With that being said, today marks the release of the Amazon Fire Toolbox V7.2 update! In today's release a few bugs have been dealt with, some of the UIs have been reworked, some tools have received new subtools/enhancements, and new device models are now supported.

    Alright, let's take a quick look at the highlights of the V7.2 update. Probably the most important out of the lot is the support for the new 2020 models has been added. Please let me know how things go with these tablets and if you come across any issues with any of the tools while tweaking these tablets.

    There has been a lot of talk of custom wallpapers for the lockscreen and how to achieve the goal of applying the wallpapers to the lockscreen easily. Fortunately, in this update support for setting custom wallpapers has been added to the Lockscreen Wallpaper tool. This subtool is designed to automate most of the process of setting a custom image for you (however, some manual steps are required, but the Toolbox will walk you through it). Unfortunately, this method only works for generations 8 and above. I'm currently looking into a solution for gens 7-4.

    Now let's talk User Management. The method of storing users created by the Toolbox has been re-written and instead of storing the users on the local PC, they are stored on the tablet itself. This should prevent the Toolbox from showing the users list on a tablet where those users don't actually exist. In addition, the subtool Switch Users has been added. NOTE: THIS SUBTOOL MUST BE USED TO SWITCH FROM A CUSTOM USER TO THE DEFAULT USER OR THE CUSTOM USER MAY BE REMOVED BY THE SYSTEM!

    Next, we have the Manage Everything Amazon tool changes. Because of the revamped User Management tool it is now possible to debloat custom users using the Disable/Hide Amazon subtool and even the Restore Everything Amazon subtool will work with custom users. Enjoy!

    Finally, we have changes to the Settings. When you open Toolbox V7.2 for the first time you will find that the settings icon has changed from the [:] to a cog icon. It's also important to know that the Settings UI has been revamped. I will let you take a look for yourself. Hope you like it!

    Hey, that's not all that changed! If you are interested in everything that the update has to offer, feel free to take a look at the changelog below for more information:

    NOTE: When you first start the Toolbox it will appear to be frozen and unresponsive. This is due to the Toolbox setting up the environment and starting ADB for the first time. As a result, please do NOT close out of the Toolbox. It should be responsive again in the next 10 seconds. Please also keep in mind that first startup is the only time this should occur. Thank you for your understanding.
