It is showing up in my FTV stick.
Did not work. I sideloaded it and went to the Amazon site to purchase the free app, synced the FTV and it still did not show up in my apps screen. Of course it is there if I still go though the million sub menu's to get to it.

I used Method 2 with Llama redirect from the guide below as well as ADB Fire to set things up. Was rather painless and quick:

I deleted Kodi sideloaded app. I still could not get it to show up on the home screen. Also the app was butt ugly to me, just running it the LED light on the Fire TV kept flashing and I was seeing my disk space going down in real time. Thanks for the help anyway but I am not going to bother with it.

"Help us improve the AFTV" survey

Has anyone completed this? I tried but it wouldn't let me. I'm wondering if it contained any clues about what a possible model upgrade might include?

I've been hoping for a new model sometime soon - it's discouraging that after a year we're only at the survey stage, especially compared to the rapid pace of improvements to their tablets...

Thanks,

CC

Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???

My bad - I'll stop relying on the title to appear. It's not a link - I got an e-mail invite to participate...
