This is where all the app icon images reside. You have to look for the specific one you are trying to change.

Do I get to that screen through Root Explorer in ES File Explorer? If so, how do I get to /data/data/........../.dl?

I am. I should have clarified in my post.

Yes, the 366x366 image is the one you want to change for "Apps/Your app library".

You don't need to go through Root Explorer. When I open ES, it defaults to showing the contents of sdcard. On the top, you should see "/" and "sdcard". You want to go to "/" and then proceed from there.

You do have to have Hidden Files turned on.


RE: Amazon Fire TV for XBMC - segma98 - 2014-06-21

Or click on /Device on the left plane of ES. This will show the root "/" folder structure.

Then select /data

no need to switch any icons or use a loader app anymore, someone figured out how to have all your installed apps show on the home screen.,

Why are you trying to use adb push? Just use ES to copy and paste.

I have no idea on how to proceed after I enter "/". I hit on it and it takes me to devices.

EDIT: ES File Explorer is not letting me turn Hidden Files on.


RE: Amazon Fire TV for XBMC - Tinwarble - 2014-06-21

Ok, quick instructions:

You must be rooted and have show hidden files selected.

* Open ES File Explorer
* On the left side plane click on /Device
* Then open the folder data, then another folder data again.
* Find and open com.amazon.venezia
* Open the folder cache, then open the folder .dl
* You should then see the images/names of all the icons
* Navigate to the icon that you want to change, then press and hold the select button on the remote until a check mark is on it.
* On the bottom of ES File Explorer, select Copy
* Now navigate to where you want to copy the image (NOTE: if you are going to copy it to a network location you need to go to Network/LAN before you do of the above and Scan for your network devices. Editing is easier if you copy the image so it can be edited on a PC.)
* Once navigated to the location you want, select paste.
* Now copy the original images name and use it to rename the name of the replacement image.
* The back in ES, copy the new image then navigate back to /data/data/com.amazon.venezia/cache/.dl/ and Paste the image.
* ES will ask if you want to Overwrite the old image, select Overwrite.

I am unable to get ES File Explorer to turn on and show Hidden Files. Not understanding why.
