    After my Co-star RIP I bought amazon fire TV to replace it after weeks of reading and searching at xda forum I finally mode and Sideload apk to it. I want to know which apk work and how well it work. I believe if the app work on your it should work on mine.

    1 XBMC for Ouya(XBMC HUB addon)...... work very well the best of all and the reason I choose amazon fire tv
    2 Firefox........ work nicely
    3 You Tube....... work great
    4 Zingy Poker........ work perfectly
    5 Videomix......... work great but unfortunately Showbox not working
    6 TV portal........ work great better than expected
    7 Adwlauncher Ex........ is ok
    8 Apex launcher......... the same ok
    9 am Navi-x.......... download only work not stream but sadly 1channal not working

    I will add more when I know more. :)

    Opera Browser is the most standard one to use when no flash player is needed.
    I am using it for this very post on my Fire TV!

    The multitude of N64 emulators (all "lazy" Mupen ports) work quite well and even at 1080p plus HQ4X.
    One exclusive issue is that Smash Bros. is not running as fast as it should,even when HQ4X is off.
    The speed is sadly not increased when on the emulator's smaller resolution settings,but 1080P does not lag either.

    We need an N64 emulator built from the ground up like the DS emu called DraStic.
    Other DS emulators are slow as butts compared to DraStic.
    I also tested the DraStic DEMO with flawless performance results.
    Too bad Dolphin emu doesn't work (blame Qualcomm for how bad it sucks at compatibility),just gray when trying to boot the game.
    To make matters worse,Dolphin on Android actually supports Wii emulation as well,and we can't run it because of Qualcomm and the lack of larger storage space.
    The only chance is getting root for removable storage (32GB) and Freedreno access,and even Freedreno is a stretch at running Dolphin emu.

    I have XDA's HD Mod of the YouTube app (inverted skin version),and it works perfectly fine with 1080P!
    (only videos that actually HAVE 1080P of course)

    I got the wireless receiver yesterday it's complicated for me cause it's not plug and play things so I asked my daughter to set it up for me with PC.... it work fine now I can play sample game and good to have another working remote control.

    if you really want it... get genuine wireless for xbox receiver from Amazon for $15 or less.

    once you rooted AFT you can mount USB flash drive or hard drive it appears in file manager internal storage as USB devices. You can play music, videos.... and install apps(no more sideloaded). .. etc directly from there..... the stickmount app very useful to have.

    24 Adaway ..... need root the best adv block.... work great
    25 Cache cleaner pro..... the best cleaning tool
    26 Astro....... good file manager and backup
    27 Copy....... good cloud storage you can install apk to AFT... watch movies, listen music.... ect

    It's not much news on AFT... anyway i manage to get 1channal TV app to work on fire TV by use external player in setting.... You get hundreds of movies and tv show.. If you have es file manager app installed you can download the files and watch it later and the connection so fast better than expected you will not be disappointed

    28. Channal1 TV...... It's one of xbmc addon and one of the best.
