  1. Can I use this with firetv remote on Android?

  2. I did all… but double clicking the Play/Pause button did not launch the Mouse Toggle. I assume I’ve got to open the 3rd party app first, eg HBOMAX?

  3. it get stuck on ‘starting’. on my firetv. this was happening on version 1.6 too. toggling the ADB setting off/on does not help. This seems to be a bug with this mouse toggle and my firetv dating back a while no.w

    • Hey, just restart your Fire TV device once you have installed Mouse Toggle. Once you do that, directly open the app that you want to use such as HBO Max or whatever app and double click Play/Pause button to make it work.

  4. finally got it kind off responding but had to adjust my video resolution. however, my tv is old, so only had one low resolution to choose. but the mouse pointer now does not move across the full screen which makes it pretty useless. also clicking ok on what it can ‘reach’ is a hit and mouse. Who at hbo would write such a terrible
    hbomax app ??

    • Did you try Play/Pause button on the FireStick remote? Actually, this is not an HBO Max app, this is a third-party app that works with HBO Max because the official HBO Max app wont work anywhere outside the US.

  5. I’ve downloaded HBO MAX, then I’ve downloaded the mouse toggle app. I’ve turned off the tv n turned it back on, opened HBO MAX, and double clicked the pause/play button and it still isn’t working. HBO Max app looks great, but I’m not able to navigate it as the mouse never appears. And yes, once both apps were installed I deleted the apk files like you said to. What else can be done?

    • Make sure you are connected to any 3 of these servers, Detroit, Bend, or Denver if you’re using it from outside the US. Let us know if it works.

  6. Hi, I downloaded the freeview app and mouse toggle for my firestick but when trying to enter my postcode it’s only giving me the option to use numbers. Anyone know how I can input letters as well?

    • Download the apk with this link “” its updated version of freeview now the input letters problem is resolved. This issue is working till this date 2/17/2023

  7. I have done exactly as you direct, however, when I push pause/play i do not get the circle and I cannot select or move sideways. I can move up and down only and not select. Please advise.

    • Double tab the play button. Go to the app and stop the server and start it again and restart your firestick device.

  8. Edit: It works but you cant see the cursor

  9. I have done everything exactly, but when I start HBO Max, press twice the start and mouse appears..
    Problem is when I go to bottom of the screen the screen doesn’t move. So, the pointer is only a pointer, without scroll down function?

    • Hello vladimir. We just updated mouse toggle links and we have now 2 different links. if you have new firestick make sure to install mouse toggle with the correct link

  10. There is a error message saying the site is forbidden when I enter the url in the downloader. I’m doing this on a Samsung TV


  12. I got an error:
    Oops! Invalid request.
