Small Tech Update (Good News and Bad News)

For followers that have followed my suggestion of installing the FireStarter app as a front-end to launching KODI, when Amazon Fire TV updates to the latest update (Fire OS 5.0.5.1), it removes Fire Starter from the system. That is the Bad news.

The good news is that it placed KODI in the recently used app section of the standard Amazon Fire TV menu.

If I learn of a Fire Starter update that allows the app to reside on the Fire TV, I will try it and let you know if it is worth installing.

I haven’t checked to see if Amazon also updated the Fire Stick and removed Fire Starter form it too.

I will update this post when I check my Fire Stick.

UPDATE: It does affect the Fire Stick and most likely the entire Fire line including the tablets.
