Reboot to CoreELEC APK

This updated app works fine as need.
Also help for the users to bypass the first toothpick method.
I can use the long press off button to reboot in the homatics boxes , but maybe, in other situation, where the long press not work, it will help.
And well designed :+1:

Well, in newest Firestick, and in some android box thats same. Earlier was the network debugging mode…

So under Android TV there is only USB debugging what is needed for this.
There is no ADB debugging, it’s calling here network debugging.
It looks like you are running the FireTV OS.
The Fire TV devices should be omitted here anyway as they cannot use CoreELEC, so this app is unnecessary for these devices.

I don’t know how the app works for other devices that can use CoreELEC.
As I said, I can only provide support for the Homatics Box R 4K Plus.

That’s true :smiley:, no CE on such device. Except it have a AML SoC? No, just kidding.

Is it somehow possible to develop a similar method from Coreelec to AndroidTV

It’s already there for years…
Reboot to internal…


I built an addon a long time ago.
Just install this zip.
Run the addon every time you want to boot into Android. (19.8 KB)

Looks nice, maybe it would be possible to add a shutdown button? :slight_smile:
I don’t boot to android often, but I think there is no easy way to completely shutdown from android, using Homatics Box R 4K Plus Dune version.
