Thanks for setting this up man. I got two brand new fire 8’s today … one was 5.4.0 and other 5.6 … so one I had your script do everything - the other just load fully, lannouncer, the play store, etc. saved a lot of work.
I did have a couple probs - one was from NOT reading the instructions! But great work. Thanks.
As far as power, I replaced an old Honeywell/ademco keypad that gets
12volts already — I simply crimped an in-line 12V to 5V DC converter inline
with a female usb end. You can get one on Amazon (see below):
Hi! Thank you for this Utility. It worked great for my two Fire 5th generation tablets. My device is running 22.214.171.124 (didn’t want to mess with trying to step it down and inadvertently Bricking it). It removed the ads but kept all the Amazon apps, which I can live with.
Also, thank you for the driver information, my second tablet could not connect to my Windows laptop, so removing the driver was useful.
If there is an update for removing Fire Apps for 126.96.36.199, would love to hear about it.
@dhsemp Which wall mount is that you are using the flushmount cable? Also, how did you connect it to power? I am looking to put it where an old security keypad is so I believe I can use the power from that.
See the above post for the ebay(wall mount with flush mount usb power cable) and amazon (12v to 5v dc converter) urls. I used the Fully browser from the install script in this thread to launch ActionTiles…

I’m sure if consumers are willing to pay a high enough price to justify the effort and risk, someone will take on the opportunity to import these a list them on Amazon or some other marketplace.
I’ve never attempted direct import myself, but I’ve purchased from some retailers who have; and they certainly have their hands full with delays and quality issues before and after shipping to consumers.
Yeah but these are used by a number of people here as part of the Fire Tablet mount kit. I just don’t want the 3D printed frame. I think that the cleanest and least expensive wall mount would be a flush mount USB cable and a magnet on the wall. It also makes it very easy to remove for use.
I have also considered a magnetic Qi charger and receiver. Like these:
