Someone I know had this issue so you could try this...go to the Fire TV's Settings screen, scroll to the right, selecting “My Account,” and then selecting the “Sync Amazon Content and then do a restart... also make sure your auto updates are turned on.

its an issue with recent amazon updates where icons arent always showing for sideloaded apps.. if u want it to show use another launcher such as wolflauncher

***Bump***

Has anybody got a fix for this yet? Still happening. Not on all sideloaded apps either. Complete PIA! Firestick has now updated to the new display and its even worse. Now just a grey box and doesn't even show app name when highlighted.

Amazon dont want 3rd party apps on their sticks,the last update made sure that it would happen.
Waste of money buying a firestick because your being restricted bt them

Maybe not a lie as remembering smart tv can do any app but now restricted to what you can use.
There will always be a door shutting with lan items and another bypassing the closed door using the doggy flap :LOL: :LOL:

WTF are you on about? He posted that you can't sideload to a firestick after the latest update. So ,yes, it's a lie because you can.

Well that's funny because I did the last update and can install 3rd party apps, as can everyone else.

Don't manually update the firestick

I'd suggest you have a read of that thread and educate YOURself lad.
Have you tried the "apps to fire" app? Or the "downloader" app?

Both worked fine for me adding iPTV app to an updated firestick lite. Only problem was the lack of logo icon, but the apps installed and worked fine.

iPTV smarters pro was the only one I found that displays the icon on a lite with newest software.

I don't have any issues sideloading.
