RE: Amazon Fire TV for XBMC - navigates - 2014-06-25

Whats the quickest way to enable usb with root. There was a tutorial a while back which was a little complicated?


RE: Amazon Fire TV for XBMC - xiaNaix - 2014-06-25

Just a heads up for those who are not rooted. With the new firmware update, in order to access XBMC you can't just go to the system settings, applications section and then scroll down to the XBMC icon. There is now an extra section called "Manage All Installed Applications" that you have to click on before you can get to the sideloaded apps. Not a deal breaker by any means but still a minor annoyance.

read the thread

I have read the thread. There were two sets of instructions. Which is the preferred method is what I'm asking.
