Popcorn not show on TV app list

Post by florin.idita » Wed Mar 13, 2019 5:52 pm

Hello,

I have Android 8 builtin on my Philips TV 55pus7303/12
. had Android 7 and just updated.

On both ., the popcorn icon is not showing in apps list to lunch it.
I've installed a new launcher and from there I can start the app. But I'll like to use the default launcher.

Any idea how I can add it?
Is the last . of . installed.
I've uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared data/cache... still no results.

Is there a chance that your TV default launcher recognize only preinstalled apps by manufacturer or apps installed from Google Play only? I mean PT installed from 'untrusted source', in this case any other app installed from non Google Play also cannot be started by default TV launcher. Maybe you need to go to TV settings and allow to run such apps from 'untrusted source'.

No. isn't about untrusted sources.
I've installed PT from (dot) sh, the apk for tv and that one is showing.
I think is about the app format.
for me, this . is working perfectly. don't know why isn't compiled for tv, too.

I've made it.
You can generate a new apk from here, only to launch the app.

At App Banner will have to put an wide one which will be displayed at launcher
