Extracting APK on Android TV and Fire TV
Want an easy way to extract or backup installed application APKs from Android TV, Fire TV, or even Android phones? It’s simple! By using this method, you can uncover hidden applications on various Android TV brands. For example, the NVIDIA SHIELD has a joystick test app, while Amazon Fire TV has the hidden developer monitor app called X-Ray, a hidden NEWS app if you are not in the United States. This method works on all kinds of Android TV devices, including NVIDIA SHIELD, MIBOX, MI TV STICK, FIRE TV, ONN, and TIVO STREAM 4K.
For instance, you can extract two unique apps from Fire TV: YouTube and YouTube Kids. These apps are special versions of YouTube that don’t rely on Google Service Framework. Therefore, they can be installed on other Android devices without GMS, like Huawei phones and tablets, Fire Tablets, and some Android TV boxes, while still functioning flawlessly.
