Is it normal for the "Circle" home button to remain white and be "invisible" in some apps? I think I was able to get everything converted correctly to Android but that's the one bug I am noticing.

Yeah, that's normal. Switching the tablet to "Dark Theme" fixes most of the invisible home button issues. I think I only have a couple apps that it doesn't fix completely.

I have an issue with the ESPN app on my Amazon Fire HD tablet 2021 version where authentication fails when I select my TV provider.
I had a similar issue with my older Amazon Fire HD tablet (also rooted) and it would seemingly resolve itself after a while.

When I reached out to ESPN about the issue, I received this response:


First, how do I get Silk browser installed on the tablet? I opened the Toolbox app but don't see Silk Browser as an option to install.
Second, any tips on how to get the ESPN app working if the tablet is not supposed to be updated?
Bumping this again. I'm hoping someone can help me with this. Thanks in advance.

Hi, just got a 2022 Fire HD 8+ from Black Friday. I see that it’s 12th gen and now just reading about some issues with this. I’ve managed to get the Play Store and Youtube working, but YouTube TV keeps saying I don’t have Play Services installed when it’s showing that it is. Any solution to this yet? If not, is there an alternative to this app? It’s one of the main apps I use regularly. Thank you!

The Silk Browser is available in the Shop Amazon app. It's free.

What error is the ESPN app giving you? I have some updated apps in the 3rd link in my signature. If you need another updated app, I'll pull it from my 7.3.2.3 tablet and put it with the other apps I've pulled.

Have you tried the Alternate YouTube replacement apps included with Toolbox? I find SmartTube works nicely, and so does YouTube Vanced, although it's now abandonware.

The error says "Authentication Failed" after selecting DirecTV as my TV provider and trying to stream anything in the app.

For some reason Silk Browser is not showing up for me in the Amazon Appstore.

Can you please put the updated ESPN app up?

I had a license for AdGuard, and used that instead of RethinkDNS. I blocked all internet access to the same 4 apps, so hopefully it will work as well.

I have, but unfortunately they seem to be just the regular YouTube, which I already have working fine. Need YouTube TV, which need Play Services to be installed fully. Do you know if there's a way I can at least cast it to the tablet from my iPhone?

Also, I tried MSG Go, to watch NY Rangers hockey, but it just keeps crashing on me as well, and that one doesn't indicate if it's dependent on Play Services.

OK for YouTube TV, I found a work around for now... I copied the URL from my computer, and then used that link to open from the Fire tablet, and that worked.

Now I just need MSG Go to work. UPDATE: got it working via same method as above.

Hi, I've just pulled out my Fire Tablet 10 Plus, Gen. 11 to use/update after it has been sitting dormant since the beginning of the year. Back then, I had used Firebox tool to clean up and get apps the way I wanted. As I recall I turned off OTA updating at that time (though not quite sure where to find this toggle at the moment), and current firmware looks to be 7.3.2.1.

I have downloaded the latest Toolbox to computer, but have not actually plugged in the tablet yet as I'm a little afraid to do anything that would mess things up. Would someone here be willing to refresh my memory/suggest on where I should start/what I should be careful of in bringing this thing up to speed?

As I recall, I had to turn off Play Store app auto updates for Amazon apps, but can update all others there, yes? What about updates to Amazon apps from the Amazon store? Do I enable OTA in order to update system and Amazon apps and do I not want to do that? If I don't go to latest operating system update, will my tablet be at risk (security-wise). Thanks for any help in getting me going again!

The ESPN app is available at the Amazon Appstore. I just looked and I don't even have that app. Just launch the Amazon Appstore and do a search for "ESPN". The Silk Browser shows as being incompatible with Fire tablets when I go to the Amazon Appstore on my computer. It's for FireTV. That's why it doesn't show up in the tablet's Appstore.

I did add Amazon System Webview to my Google Drive folder in case they updated that. Amazon Webview could affect playback of web video. Try updating that.

The ESPN app I have is already from the Amazon appstore. I was referring to the Silk browser not showing up for me when I do a search in the Amazon appstore.

Do you have instructions for downloading apks onto the tablets? I will try downloading Amazon Webview.

I just edited my reply while you were posting! Silk Browser is for FireTV, not Fire Tablets.

For dowloading .apk files, just point whatever browser you like to the link in my signature, download the .apk file to someplace convenient, and then open a file browser and go to the file and tap it to install.

You just need t make sure the tablet isn't connected to the internet, that USB debugging is on. Plugging it into your computer is perfectly safe. If you've disabled the OTA then it'll say in the options. There should be two toggles, and they should be off. If not, turn them off.

The point is, you don't want to update to the newest Fire firmware.

I followed your instructions but keep getting an "App not installed" message when I try to install Amazon System WebView.

That's strange. I pulled that from my HD8 (2020) with F/W v7.3.2.3 . I just downloaded the shared file from the link, to my HD10 (2019) with F/W v7.3.1.2. I tapped it and it installed without issue. Maybe your tablet needs a reboot? Try a reboot and try installing again. There shouldn't be a problem.

Okay, thanks much! I've gone to Developer Options and see the button ticked off on Automatic System Updates. I hope that this the only (one) button as that is the only one I see that seems to pertain to System Updates. USB Debugging is also ticked on. Should I be too concerned about using the old firmware in terms of security?

Am I correct in assuming I can download and update freely from the Amazon App Store? I recall that I need to turn off Enable Auto Updates for any Amazon app that shows up under my apps in Google Play. If apps are available on Amazon and Google Play, should I generally go with the Amazon option? In other words is Google Play primarily for the apps not available in the AppStore?

I've rebooted several times now and still get the same error message.

    Alright, a Fire 7 bought in 2021 is probably an HD 7 (2019). If this is the case, then I had a search around XDA and found you this thread. It is a guide to rooting the HD 7 (2019) and installing Lineage OS. If you don't want to actually root and replace, then Toolbox is much simpler but will still require a Windows environment to run.

    Toolbox does not "root" your device, so if you want root you'll be better off starting in the link I gave. Toolbox only issues non-root ADB commands to your tablet to accomplish what it does.
    I'll add that you may or may not like the result you get with rooting.

    I had put off rooting my 2016 8 inch Samsung S2 tablet for a good long while. It is a pain but I decided to do it because Android 9 is getting long in the tooth. After much consternation and jumping through some bizarre hoops due to only certain files working with the recovery loading process I installed two versions of Lineage. 17 didn't allow for all of the camera functions so I tried 16. Random crashes and other frustrations caused me to reinstall the stock Samsung firmware.

    The Android OS is getting more and more complicated. Have fun if you root but go into it with eyes wide open.

    I bought 2 4K Firesticks from Woot early Saturday morning (in bed on my "Open Box" but new Samsung Verizon LTE tablet that I grabbed on eBay). The one that came Monday was used in like new condition and had an old firmware but not so old that I could hijack the Home button. Otherwise fine and I have the update servers blocked on my router.

    The one that came yesterday was new in the box and a bit older than Monday's Firestick. I was able to hijack the Home button and block further updates with a debloating tool.

    $40 for both! And the newer Firesticks will likely have less and less functionality.
    I'm talking to myself again...

    I wanted to post what I think it bad news for those trying to block updates by blocking router access to the Amazon update servers. I bought 2 Firesticks as mentioned above. The newer one was used in great condition. It had a slightly newer firmware that than the older of the two. The one with the older firmware took 3 different commands used to block updates. The newer only allowed one of the three commands to run. I assumed I could stop he newer one from updating by blocking the Amazon update servers. I blocked six or so that were listed online in my Orbi router. Tonight when I started to use the Firestick that was in question it had updated to the latest firmware (6.2.9.4).

    When I first booted it and thought I had stopped the updates it was 6.2.8.9 if my memory is correct.

    So I am wondering if Amazon started to use another server or if maybe the servers used for the Firestick are different than those used for tablets.

    How to Disable Lockscreen on my Fire HD 10 Gen 11 with 7.3.2.6

    Fire Toolbox 30.3 is stuck at
    "checking to see if the device is locked with a pin or password"

    any advise?
    I'd just make sure my tablet was awake with screen on while connecting to toolbox. It should go ahead and continue then.

    If you can't get it to work, you can get Activity Launcher from the Playstore and use it to access the hidden activity that Toolbox would use. Install Activity Launcher and look (search) for the activity ""password.ScreenLockSuggestionActivity". Tap it and you'll get a choice of 5 options. Choose "None" or any other but don't choose "Pattern". If you choose "Pattern", you're setting yourself on a course for a factory reset.

    That depends on the version and year of Fire tablet you have. For the recent tablets, we don't have a bootloader unlock exploit so there is no "converting to Android" by flashing a vanilla AOSP Android image. Toolbox does the next best thing, though, by facilitating a bunch of ADB commands to disable the Amazon bloat and replace the launcher.

    At the moment, the only way to do it on Linux is by running a Windows VM under Virtualbox. There was talk of making it work somehow under WINE by starting up ADB in Linux first, but I haven't tried that personally.

    There is a project underway by @Datastream33 to make a Linux port of Toolbox. It's pretty far along and I've tested some of the tools included in the port. Datastream hasn't remarked about it lately so I don't know how it's going. In the meantime, you could load a VM and a Windows 7 image from M$ so you can run Toolbox. That's how I run mine.(y)

    I have a Fire 7 bought in 2021. Can I root it from Linux without using a Virtualbox?

    I would guess it's different servers. I have a blocklist in my signature that includes 6 addresses used in the US. They probably have other servers for other countries. You could use RethinkDNS to block the update app itself so that the app is blocked, regardless of the server.

    Hey, I know I'm a little tardy to the party... but I suppose it's better late than never... right?

    I'm happy to announce that today marks the 4TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the project! 🎉🎉

    2019, the year of the Toolbox's release... It seems like such a long time ago, doesn't it? (feels like 4 years to be exact ;)).

    Jokes aside, it's really cool to see how something that started out so simple, evolve into something much bigger than you could ever image. I mean, this project started out as a BATCH file for pete's sakes... its sole responsibility to remove lock screen ads!

    Release after release, the Toolbox grew, and so did its impact. Today we are on Version 30.3 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 been through some hard times, with the whole download situation that happened in July, the release of FireOS 7.3.2.2, the play services issue on FireOS 8... just to name a few. But you guys stuck with me through it all, giving your support, and just being awesome people!

    Speaking of you guys, I just wanted to take some time to THANK YOU all from the bottom of my heart for being the BEST community on the entire internet. @Jumbo100 and I were discussing this and we both came to the conclusion that this community is one of the few communities where everyone has just been so kind, caring, positive, respectful and helpful towards each other without there being rude and toxic individuals running rampid. Words cannot express how grateful I am to be a part of it. You guys are my world, and seeing everyone come together like this is has just been a blessing. Thank YOU all so much from the bottom of my heart. :D

    I also want to give a huge shoutout to a few close friends on the forums that I couldn't have done all of this without: @blaacksheep, and @Jumbo100. I mean, where do i even start? You guys are really carrying this thread if I'm being honest. No question goes unanswered, and you guys are always on here offering advice, creating magnificent guides (especially your workaround guides @blaacksheep), and just generally being amazing people. We all owe you guys so much! The community growth is largely because of your guys efforts! Words just cannot express how lucky we are to have you two. THANK YOU!

    So What's Next for the Project?​

    The goal for this year is to complete and release the Python Port (more on that in a moment). But, I'd also like to jump into the VB version and fix up some issues that it has. Work needs to be done, and some improvements need to be made.

    As far as the port goes, I'm about to let out some information that may cause some anger for some folks. I've thought long and hard about this, and I've decided that the port will be closed-source, much like the Windows version. Yes, I know there are plenty of reason why open-sourcing it would be better than keeping it closed source, but I'm just not ready for that sort of thing yet. I'm not saying it will never happen, just not at the moment. I hope you guys can understand.

    Thank you all for taking the time to read this post, I really do appreciate it! Please have a good rest of your night, and I'll see you guys tomorrow!

    HERE'S TO A HAPPY 4-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE TOOLBOX! 🥳

    Godd tactical plan ... you need/want FireOS 8.3.1.3 but ONLY f/w 8.3.1.3.

    Keep a copy of the the f/w download for "safekeeping" , if you ever need to do a future device factory reset ... Amazon support only makes the current update available and doesn't archive previous versions.
    I can see that. Is there no 3rd-party website keeping any of the desired Fire OS versions available? Would Amazon shut that down?

    If they frown upon this, I guess you wouldn't be permitted on any host using Amazon Web Services. Terms of Service or some such legalese but this may be something that might fly under their radar.

    Manual updating is not working for me.

    I go from Settings --> Device Options but when I go to System Updates, I get kicked back to Settings

    FTB won't re-enable either OTA updates. I'm not sure about automatic updates. It looks like I can make a change on the tablet but FTB won't show any such change.

    There doesn't appear to be any method available for pointing the tablet towards the firmware update that's sitting in the internal storage folder.

    I've restored all Amazon apps. The only thing I can think to do next is a Reset to Factory Defaults.

    The one thing that I don't want to do is to go online to do anything automatically there.

    I have Fire 8 (10th gen, 2020), and used (I think) v26 or so for the tool. I have system updates disabled so I can't see what version Fire OS I'm on but I haven't updated in more than a year at least.

    So is it worth updating to newer Fire OS for the tablet? Any significant updates? Does v30 of the tool do anything more/less that it would be worth running it and updating, or even starting again? I only use this Fire for basic use, media use.

    I still find the Fire tablets slow, this one was cheap it was worth it, is the 2022 version any faster in general use? Hate the pause and sluggish behaviour of it

    thanks
    If you've been away from the FTB community for a while you've missed a lot of excitement/angst/despair.

    From the FireOS 7.3.2.2 update (late November/21) there were some significant changes to how Fire tablets could be modded. Quoting from OP #1:

    " IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING FIREOS 7.3.2.2+ AND THE TOOLBOX (PLEASE READ)

    If your tablet is running FireOS 7.3.2.2 or above please note that some functions of the Toolbox may not work due to new restrictions in the new firmware. The following tools either do not work or have limited functionality:

    • OTA Updates - OTAs can no longer be disabled.
    • Manage Amazon Apps - Some system apps can no longer be disabled."


    This includes not being able to replace Amazon Launcher.

    Since then Amazon has added even more restrictions. @Datastream33 worked really hard to code various "workarounds" which are effective but are cumbersome and add to the "overhead" of the already limited system resources.

    So definitely DO NOT upgrade FireOS . Most of the FTB updates are related to the workarounds and probably wouldn't add any new functionality to your setup, although some of the FTB processes are improved.

    If your tablet is pre-f/w update 7.3.2.2, consider it to be part of the "Golden Age" of FTB mods ... it doesn't get any better!

    To improve the performance of your device consider reducing the number of apps installed to free as much memory as possible, especially for streaming media. Also consider cleaning the tablet caches periodically; services like YouTube can occupy as much as 250MB memory per hour.

    The newer Gen 12 tablets have moderately improved specs, but have their own problems running the Google Play ecosystem.

    Fire Toolbox V30.2
    All-In-One Toolbox for Fire Tablets!





    Introduction.png


    The Fire Toolbox is a collection of useful ADB (Android Debug Bridge) tweaks that can be applied to Amazon's Fire Tablets. The Toolbox project aims to help users fully customize and unlock the full potential of their tablets by putting all the power into their hands.
    The Toolbox doesn't touch the system partition meaning all changes made can be reversed either through the tools/subtools themselves or through a factory reset. This means the Toolbox does NOT void your warranty.

    Compatibility.png


    IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING FIREOS 7.3.2.2+ AND THE TOOLBOX (PLEASE READ)

    If your tablet is running FireOS 7.3.2.2 or above please note that some functions of the Toolbox may not work due to new restrictions in the new firmware. The following tools either do not work or have limited functionality:

    • OTA Updates - OTAs can no longer be disabled.
    • Manage Amazon Apps - Some system apps can no longer be disabled.

    We're looking into workarounds to the issues detailed above. Please keep an eye on the forum for further development.

    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


    GettingStarted.png


    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 - 2022) Guide:
    Before purchasing the tablet:
    • Make sure you uncheck the "Link device to your Amazon account to simplify setup" box before Adding to Cart. (See this screenshot, credits go to @ancientrael)

      if the box remains checked, your tablet will automatically update to the latest version of FireOS the second it auto-connects to your wifi.
    Booting the tablet for the first time:
    • Wait for your tablet to fully boot up for the first time (may take a few seconds to minutes).
    • When it boots, it will ask you for the language you'd like the OS to use. Select your prefered language.
    • Tapping the blue arrow at the bottom of the screen, you'll be asked to connect to a WIFI network.
    • Select ANY network from the list (even if you don't know the password).
    • Once it asks for the password, tap the "Cancel" button and it will take you to the previous screen with the Wifi networks.
    • At the bottom of the screen, you should now see a "Skip Setup" button, go ahead and tap that.
    • It will now ask if you're sure you want to skip fire setup. Just tap "Skip" once more.
    • You should immeditely be thrown into Fire Launcher. You're now ready to enable USB/ADB Debugging.
    Enabling USB Debugging:
    • Turn on your tablet and go to Settings > Device Options > About Fire Tablet and tap on the Serial Number until you unlock Developer Options.
    • Press the back button and find the new Developer Options and toggle it on.
    • Scroll down till you find USB Debugging and enable it.
    Setting up the drivers:
    If you are on Windows 10 or Windows 11 you do NOT need to following this guide because Windows will setup the needed drivers by default automatically. All you need to do is plug your tablet in and Windows will take care of the rest. Please wait until these drivers are fully installed before laucnhing the Toolbox for the first time.
    • Download the latest version of the Toolbox from the Downloads section of this page and install it onto your PC.
    • Plug your tablet into the computer, and Windows will start installing the MTP drivers. It will also attempt to install the ADB driver but will fail. (This is normal and to be expected)
    • Launch the Toolbox, and it should detect your Windows version and inform you that further driver setup is required. It will then ask you if you'd like the Toolbox to download and install the 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.
    • At this point, If drivers are setup properly... the Toolbox will inform you that the "device isn't authorized. Please authorize your device now."
    • 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:
    Before purchasing the tablet:
    • Make sure you uncheck the "Link device to your Amazon account to simplify setup" box before Adding to Cart. (See this screenshot, credits go to @ancientrael)

      if the box remains checked, your tablet will automatically update to the latest version of FireOS the second it auto-connects to your wifi.
    Booting the tablet for the first time:
    • Wait for your tablet to fully boot up for the first time (may take a few seconds to minutes).
    • When it boots, it will ask you for the language you'd like the OS to use. Select your prefered language.
    • Tapping the blue arrow at the bottom of the screen, you'll be asked to connect to a WIFI network.
    • Select ANY network from the list (even if you don't know the password).
    • Once it asks for the password, tap the "Cancel" button and it will take you to the previous screen with the Wifi networks.

    FAQ.png

    How can I run the Toolbox on Linux?
    The Toolbox is currently being developed for Linux systems in the Python programming language. If you'd like to see the progress of the port, you can do so at this link.
    Please be patient with me as the Linux port is being developed in my spare time and may take some time to complete. However, as the port progresses some builds will be released to those who'd like to help test alpha builds. More information on this later down the line.
    However, at the moment, the best way to run the Toolbox on Linux is to use VMWare and emulate Windows.

    My Home Button isn't working after using the Custom Launcher Tool?
    Due to the way the process works, it alters your navigation bar's home key to send a key event that can be picked up by Automate. Once Automate reads this event, it launches your custom launcher automatically.
    However, if the flow in Automate isn't running, the navbar key will not work, and nothing will happen when it's tapped. To fix this, either open Automate and start the "Launcher Invoker" flow again, or execute the Custom Launcher tool in the Toolbox, click the ":" icon (upper-right) to show the Tool Options panel, and click the "Restore Navigation Bar" button to restore the stock layout.

    Google Family Link won't work on my tablet?
    Unfortuently, no matter how hard we try, we still haven't been able to get Family Link to work correctly on the tablets. The Family Link app fails to install, and the Child account refuses to login. No matter what we tried, we couldn't get a Child account to work on the tablets.
    We believe this has to do with missing dependecies, and the tablets not being certified through Google's Play Protect platform. We're still activly looking into getting the issue resolved. Until then, it's recommended that you use an alternative such as Amazon's FreeTime, Eyezy, or another third-party family managing software.

    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".

    Can the Toolbox be used to root my tablet?
    Primarly, rooting a Fire Tablet requires the user to open the back of the device and short out a certain point on the motherboard. The Toolbox has been designed for folks who'd rather not bark down this alley. It uses the power of ADB to make changes, and is meant to be an alternative to rooting. In summery, the Toolbox isn't designed to root.

    The Toolbox is being marked as a virus?
    This is likely because the Toolbox (and it's installer) aren't signed with a software license. This freaks Windows out because it sees that there is no publisher, and as a result it displays a warning (smartscreen). In addition, some anti-viruses might also flag the Toolbox as a virus simply because the build is relatively new and there is no record of it in the anti-viruses database, resulting in a false positve.
    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

    I'd also like to take the time to acknowledge today as a very special day for this project! Today marks the 3RD YEAR anniversary of the project!!! 😄 🎉🎉

    It seems like only yesterday, that the first version of the Toolbox was released! It's just crazy to think that it all started in 2019, as a very simple batch file program designed solemnly to remove lock screen ads, and has grown into what it is today! If you're interested in what started it all, I'd highly recommend checking out this post. It dives a little more into the Toolbox's background and it's beginnings!

    I just wanted to THANK YOU all from the bottom of my heart for making the last 3 years so memorable! If it wasn't for the amazing support and this wonderful community, the project would've died a long time ago! You guys are the fuel that feeds the Toolbox's development!

    Through this project, I've gotten to meet some wonderful people that I'd consider to be good friends:
    @Davy49, @Tailborn, @Falcon342, @blaacksheep, and of course you (the one reading this)!

    So, where does the Toolbox go from here? Well, I suppose the next step would be to bring the Toolbox to more platforms! Currently, the Toolbox is being ported to other platforms using the Python programming language, and PySimpleGUI. I've also been asked if the Toolbox Python port will ever become open-source, and I think the answer is most likely yes. Big things are planned for the Toolbox this year, and I hope you'll join me on this journey!

    HERE'S TO THE TOOLBOX'S 3RD YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! 👏:D

    A lot has changed since I first posted this. Toolbox has been updated to v29.0 and now has a new method of replacing the Fire Launcher, DNS66 is only a delaying tactic and doesn't stop updates in all cases, and the Lockscreen Ad removal process in the old FTB v9.2 still works to remove the ads. I leave the post up, but understand that it's just for reference as a starting point for you to explore these things.


    What to do about F/W v. 7.3.2.2

    So your Fire tablet has the latest firmware update on it (v7.3.2.2) and Fire Toolbox won't do what it's supposed to. All is not lost. I've collected some workarounds that will keep Amazon at bay. The three main problems are:

    1) You can't stop Automatic updates.

    2) You can't get rid of the lockscreen ads.

    3) You hate the Amazon Launcher, but Amazon won't let you change it permanently.


    Once those three problems are addressed, you pretty much have your tablet back. The Toolbox will still work for all the other things you want modify. First, get your tablet set up with Toolbox, install Google Services, and install the launcher you want. (Make sure to select "Enable Widget Support".) We'll take care of the Amazon Launcher later. So let's get started with the 3 main problems.

    1) Automatic updates.

    This method is far from perfect and has sometimes allowed updates to somehow slip by. The only other way to do this that I know is to use an app blocking firewall and block the update apps. I chose this method because it doesn't require a 'training period' to train the app on what to block and what to let through. Also, if you've already got lockscreen ads in your tablet's cache, this will not remove them. This method must be in place before you first connect to WiFi for the lockscreen ad blocking to work.

    We need to stop the tablet from contacting Amazon to update it's firmware. We can no longer disable the service that does this, BUT, we can interfere with it's ability to contact the server from which it gets its updates. On a computer, we would modify the hosts file and block the addresses of the update servers. On an Android device, we need root access to do that, but there is an alternate way of adding things to the hosts file - with a VPN. We'll use a free and open source ad blocking VPN app to do this. The app is called DNS66 and it's available through F-Droid. You need to make sure this is always running to be protected from updates. Luckily, android has a feature to assist us in this. It's called "Always On VPN" and we need another app to access the hidden setting for this. We'll use "Activity Launcher" to get to this setting. Activity Launcher is available from Google's Play Store.

    It turns out that using Activity Launcher to change this hidden setting does nothing more than give you an extra notification that your VPN is off. It doesn't stop traffic, so it's useless. Besides, my tablet has taken to turning the "Always On VPN" setting back off every time I boot. (Thanks Amazon!) Activity Launcher is still useful for finding settings that Amazon doesn't see fit to include. It also makes desktop shortcuts to those settings if you wish.

    Download DNS66 to your computer from f-droid.org or from the attached file, copy it to your tablet and install it. Also go to the Play Store and install Activity Launcher. Finally, get the Amzn_Blcklist.txt that's attached to this post and copy that to your tablet. The blocklist file must remain on your tablet, so put it somewhere where it won't get deleted. I suggest in the root of your internal storage. (/storage/emulated/0)

    Open DNS66. There are a couple settings that must be changed. On the Start tab, turn on "Watch Connection". (All 3 switches should now be on.)
    DNS66-start.jpg

    Now go to the Hosts tab. Tap the "+" in the lower-right. Under Title, type "Amazon Blocklist". Tap the paper clip on the next line. Navigate to the Amzn_Blocklist.txt file you downloaded earlier and select it. Now tap "Done" in the upper-right. You should now have the first and last entry on the displayed list selected.
    dns66-hosts.jpg

    Now go to the Apps tab. Turn on "Show System Apps". Tap the gear under the Show System Apps switch and select "No Apps". All the switches below that should now be off.
    dns66-apps.jpg

    You can optionally set your own DNS servers on the next screen if you'd like. I like to turn on Custom DNS Servers, deselect the German ones that are pre-selected, and then turn on the last two servers (CloudFlare).
    dns66-dns.jpg

    This can also be done with Toolbox making this step unnecessary. Now go back to the Start tab. Tap "Start". It will notify you that it wants to connect to a VPN. Tap Yes or OK and allow it.

    Quick note: Do not use the Toolbox DNS changer in Modify System Settings AND the DNS66 Custom DNS setting together. This will cause connectivity to fail. I use DNS66 and not Toolbox's DNS changer. Having the Custom DNS Servers set ins DNS66, and using the Toolbox DNS changer simultaneously caused me hours of grief trying to figure out why Google couldn't connect!

    Now Launch Activity Launcher. Tap the magnifying glass in the upper-right. Enter "VPN". One setting should appear called "VPN". Tap it. Tap the gear on the end of the DNS66 line. Turn on Always-on VPN. Turning on the other switch makes Google Services think you are disconnected, so leave that one off. Step one accomplished.

    actlaunch-vpn.jpg


    Notes:

    DNS66 takes several seconds before it gets started when you first boot, so it is possible that the tablet will make a DNS query for the update server or the lockscreen ad server before it loads. Best practice is to turn off WiFi before you power down or reboot.

    ----------



    2) Lockscreen Ads.


    Toolbox v29.0 now takes care of lockscreen ads!


    It turns out, that blocking those update servers also blocks your tablet from getting any lockscreen
    ads! No further action is needed. I stopped investigating this because I chose to disable the lockscreen completely. If you want to do that, you can do it in Toolbox, or in Activity Launcher that you just installed. Launch Activity Launcher. Tap the magnifying glass. Type in "screenlock". Now tap the last item (.password.ScreenLockSuggestionActivity). Select None and you're done.



    Notes:

    It has come to my attention that when disabling your PIN, it may still ask you for a PIN by Parental Controls for some settings or activities. I would suggest if you're going to disable your PIN, to first set it to something simple like 0000, reboot it, and then disable the PIN. That way you'll know what PIN you set if it suddenly asks you next month for your PIN.

    Another way to disable lockscreen ads is detailed Here.

    ----------



    3) Amazon Launcher.


    New: Toolbox v29 has remediated most of the difficulties in replacing the launcher. Always check that you have the latest version of Toolbox. I'll leave the rest of the post up to inspire ideas.


    The latest version of Toolbox (v 28.1) has a new tool called 'Custom Navbar Key'. This method uses Automate to automatically replace the Home button every time you reboot. It works rather nicely. I leave this section posted for completeness and to facilitate experimentation on other choices.

    The way we're going to get rid of the Amazon Launcher is by not calling it! We're going to replace the Home button with another button that we can map to any launcher we'd like. This isn't a perfect solution, but it is FREE. If you're willing to spend a couple bucks, you can purchase a more configurable gesture navigation app with more features, but this is FREE, so maybe you can accept it's shortcomings. I'll keep this post updated with other navbar replacements that people suggest.

    Go to the Play Store. Get and install "One Button Navigation". Launch it. It will want you to turn on Accessability Service for it. Follow the on-screen instructions and turn on "One Button Navigation Bar". You'll see your new nav button at the bottom of the screen. I like to adjust the width down to a dot, like the button it's replacing, but that's up to you. I also like to make the background black and the botton bright yellow so that I'm reminded it's running. Set up the background and button colors as you like them. Yeah, I know the ads in this are obtrusive, but you'll never see them once it's set up. Also DNS66 will block the ads if you install that first.
    obn-set.jpg

    Next tap the Action tab. Tap "Single Click". Scroll down and select "Launch Application...". Select the launcher that you installed with Toolbox here. In my case, it was Nova 7. (Google updated the Nova version that Toolbox installed.) Now you can set any other actions you'd like for the new button.
    obn-act.jpg

    I didn't want anything additional, so I made the gestures similar to the original buttons. This is all up to you. You can reverse them or set additional functionality to the button. I ended up with a new navbar that covers the original navbar (the one with the home button that brings up the Amazon Launcher). I now have a button that when pressed, takes me to my launcher. When I swipe it left, it goes back a screen. When I swipe it right, it shows the recents. I spent a lot of time with other navbar replacements and this is the minimalist replacement that works best for me. YMMV. Before someone complains that it doesn't work in landscape mode, I'm not the developer. You should rate it and leave a comment for him! This is the best I could find that does what I want for FREE.

    ----------



    I'll edit this post with your suggestions for better solutions to these problems and keep a list of navbar replacements that people suggest at the end so you can find what works best for you.

    What's going on, guys?

    I sincerely hope everyone is doing good, and having a wonderful December so far!

    Today marks the release of V26.0 of the Toolbox! So, without further ado... let's take a look at what this release has to offer!

    Welcome, Welcome, Welcome... Screen!​

    You know, every time I run a build for the first time I go through the Theme Selector, then the Tour, and then the Welcome Screen. I just think to myself "this is just a mess" - so in this update I thought I'd focus on improving it and making it better. I started by re-designing the Welcome Screen and doing my best to link all three tools into something that looked visually appealing. Now, in a tabbed interface you'll find the Setup Tour in the very first tab, Theme Selection (with a new UI) in the second, Installation Management in the third, and finally in the fourth the Changelog.

    Now let's talk specifically about the Installation Management tool. This bad boy now has the ability to read installations from directories other than the default (localappdata\Datastream). So, if you've got your installations in a custom location, and you'd like to manage them, it's now possible to point the path to that location. This should help make managing installations a lot easier!

    Custom Launchers on FireOS 7.3.2.2​

    As some of you may know, I bit the bullet and updated my tablet to the latest version of FireOS... to the dreaded 7.3.2.2. This update, from what I heard, caused the Custom Launcher and disabling OTAs tools to no longer function and after updating, I soon discovered that it was indeed the case. I then tried everything I could think and well really didn't turn up any valuable workarounds... until I tried the method we'd been using on older gen devices... and it worked! Of course, just like on the older gens, it has the drawback of being removed every time the device is rebooted. However, it's the only method I could find, so it's better than nothing, right?

    Anyway, while coding it in I decided to take the liberty of also clean up the code, and the UI a bit. What's cool is the tool will now read what generation your tablet is, and display what methods are available to use. You'll also find that the initial method selection UI is a lot more usable compared to its previous iteration.

    Change the Timeout for the Display?​

    Ah, the latest addition to the General group in the Modify System Settings tool. This subtool not only allows you to alter the timeout to traditional values, but also allows you to set a custom timeout. Want your screen to sleep after 24 hours of inactivity? This one's for you folks who want to extend the timeout as much as you can. Just be careful, it may cause a burn-in if your tablet's screen remains on the same screen for too long!

    Let's Talk Linux Port Stuff​

    I guess the point of this section is to ask you guys if you're ok with updates to the VB version being slowed down, so I can focus more on the port? I'd also like to address a common question I get asked about it being open-source. Right now, I'm planning on it being closed-source for now. However, I am planning on making it open-source when I feel like the time is right. Please be patient! So, let's get back to the original question... are you guy's ok if I shift primary focus to the port?


    Wait, that's not everything! If you're interested in everything that's changed... please take a look at the changelog below:

    Ready to download V26.0? Head on over to the Download's section of the OP. By the way, because of some directory changes to the bin folder... the update will not show up in the Updater. It must be installed via the Installer or extracted from the Portable release.

    Ok, my favorite part about of these release posts... sharing appreciation for you awesome folks! I just wanted to say I'm so blessed to be a part of the wonderful community over here on XDA. You guys are incredible people and in fact... this is perhaps the one place I've been on that I don't see negativity or people bullying one another. You guys are just AMAZING and I wanted to let you know that I appreciate everyone's support! Furthermore, you guys are what keep this project going, and it wouldn't be where it is today without you guys! So please pat yourself on the back - you deserve it!

    Also, I'd like to place the limelight on my good friends @blaacksheep, and of course @Falcon342. I just can't express how much I appreciate all you've done for this thread! I haven't had the time to get on here because of work and when I come on the forum I see you guys helping out and answering questions. I really do appreciate the time and effort you two have put into being so freaking helpful! However, I've got to be honest, I'm extremely sad because I feel like I'm not doing enough. I'm sure you guys would like a little help (I'm gonna try harder to be more active on here when I can to hopefully help you guys out). Anyway, thank you guys again!! I really do appreciate it!!!!

    Also, don't think I forgot about you donators! I just want to say I'm so honored that you'd donate your hard-earned cash. Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve it. Guys and gals, THANK YOU so much for donating! I really do appreciate every penny! :D

    This year has flown by and Christmas is right around the corner, so I just wanted to say MERRY CHRISTMAS and I hope you all had a remarkable 2021! Let's hope 2022 is an even better year! 🙏

    Well, that's all I've got for now! Have a good one, guys, and until next time... Peace! ✌️
