Homescreen Launcher for Amazon Tablets (Fire OS)

Enabling a Homescreen Launcher (Fire OS)

On Android Devices (including Fire OS), you can assign Meeting Room 365 v1.0.20+ as a Homescreen Launcher, which gives automatically launches the app on boot, and replaces the Homescreen of the application. This is an essential component of running Meeting Room 365 in Kiosk Mode for many users.

However, Amazon has removed this option from the settings menu of their version of Android.

So, we have added support for an open-source utility (LauncherHijack) which will automatically launch Meeting Room 365 as a homescreen launcher on FireOS devices.

Installation Steps

This guide assumes you have already enabled the installation of unsigned APKs in Settings -> Security.

Install the Meeting Room 365 app
Download LauncherHijack (Open Source)*
Follow on-screen instructions to enable LauncherHijack
Select the Meeting Room 365 Launcher when prompted
Restart device or tap home button (circle) to see this take effect (optional)
