Use Xposed Edge Pro to Auto-Start FireStarter or AppStarter on the Amazon Fire TV

A few days ago, the Playing With Fire Mod was published that allows you to essentially turn your Fire TV box/stick into an Android TV device. Following upon that, XDA Senior Member Y314K has published a guide showing you how to use Xposed Edge Pro to get FireStarter/AppStarter working on a a Fire TV/Fire TV Stick and have access to all of the pre-rooted ROMs that are available and based on Fire OS 5.

You’ll be using Xposed Edge Pro v3.9 to complete this process, and you can access it by sideloading it to your Fire TV. You don’t technically need the Pro version of the app, but some of the steps in Y314K‘s step-by-step guide are specific to the Pro version (plus, $1.99 is a low asking price and a great way to support the devs behind it).

FireStarter for Fire TV

In addition to Xposed Edge Pro, you’ll also need a rooted Fire TV device that’s currently running on either Fire OS 5 or 3, Xposed Module and Manager, and a fully-functioning version of FireStarter, AppStarter, Kodi, SPMC, or MrMC (any one of these will work).

After you follow the guide and get everything working, you’ll have FireStarter/AppStarter auto-starting upon turning on your Fire TV and complete control over the Home button on your remote so you can customize it to your heart’s content.
