FireOS and SmartTiles limitations?


So I just read about SmartTiles, and thought it might be cool to setup since I have an old FireHDX sitting around. It’s running FireOS, and I’d rather just stick with the stock OS then deal with rooting and loading up a custom rom right now. So if I go with the Stock os, what are the main limitations? It seems that I won’t be able to get rid of the swipe to unlock, but is this it?

Can I just run the browser all the time and have it connected to the SmartTiles website? Are there any apps I need to download to make the experience better? etc. etc.

Check out the “SmartTiles Mounting & CSS” Topic for a lot of relevant info even if buried in too many posts.

Short answer is that I personally currently recommend the “Fully Kiosk Browser” which you can install directly from downloaded APK.


Thanks. I was able to do everything I needed to do using the stock OS with the Fully Kiosk Browser as well as following this post:

@tgauchat I searched for “SmartTiles Mounting & CSS” and not able to find the topic. I am a first time Fire/android user and trying to figure out how to get/use APK and Fully Kiosk Browser to setup my new tablets for AT.
can you provide a link or some help?
