  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. 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.
