Can someone with a Sony TV please pull the light box apk from the Sony TV.

Can be done by using

here is a link to Apk Extractor on the google playstore. It will take your installed app, and turn it into an apk to be sideloaded on a different device. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ext.ui&hl=en

Or

Enable developer mode on your Android TV by tapping on the build version approx 7 times. Then in developer options, enable ADB. Next, from your PC on the same network, type the following:

adb connect {IP of the Android TV}
Note: You'll have to accept the authorization pop-up on your Android TV.

To browse via command line:

adb shell
Then, once you found the file you want to pull off of the TV:

adb pull {path to the file} {path on local machine}

or

I think there's an option to "Backup" in ES File Explorer that extracts it. That's how I got Pokemon Go off my phone and onto my tablet.

Also if someone can get sky fanpass that would be great

Kind regards

Any particular reason you're wanting the Lightbox & FanPass APKs ripped out of Sony TVs? :)

To install on another type of Android box possibly... (like a Shield)

 

Why don't you spoof yourself as a SonyTV and get yourself?
There are a few spoofer apps around.

And I wouldn't be surprised if Sony has disabled developer options enabling / ADB on the TV.

At a guess, its because there does not appear to be a general android tv version of lightbox (unless one has been added lately). Unless a version is in the works? ;)

 

Using Xiaomi Mi Box, running android tv 6, so definitely interested in this.

@reddragon and others, where can I find a safe apk for sky go / neon TV etc?

I have a Sony android TV and a wireless keyboard/mouse trackpad thingy.  These apps are not available legitimately, presumably because the android TV doesn't have a touch screen.

All ideas re an accepted best source for apk sourcing appreciated.

Got it working in the end.
Installed apps I wanted on an older Samsung tablet.

 

Installed Apk extractor or some app like that and saved these to files.

 

Installed ES file explorer onto TV.

 

Plugged tablet into PC and copied these to USB.  (Tried the file explorer app send function but couldn't make this work between tablet and TV)

 

Put TV into developer mode and set to accept external applications.

 

Plugged USB drive into TV, fired up file explorer app and installed the apk files.

 

These wouldn't show on the Sony TV home screen, so installed side load launcher app from play store.

 

Worked from there.
