With this method, you can even dig out some hidden applications in different brands of Android TV, for example, there is an joystick test app in NVIDIA SHIELD, and in Amazon Fire TV, there are hidden developer monitor app X-Ray too. works on all kinds Android TV such as NVIDIA SHIELD, MIBOX, MI TV STICK, FIRE TV, ONN, TIVO STREAM 4K.
For example, there are 2 very special apps that you can extract from Fire TV, the YouTube and YouTube kids, these 2 apps are special builds of YouTube and they don’t require Google Service Framework, so if you install them on other Android devices without GMS (such as Huawei phones and tablets, Fire Tablets and Some Android TV boxes without GMS), they will still work perfectly.
