Known Working Apps
Before adding an app, you'll likely need to add a launcher, add the PackageInstaller.apk, and remap your buttons. The easiest way to do this is via the
MotoACTV Easy Modder V1.2
, which will automate the tougher aspects of modding your newly rooted ACTV.
Most users begin by remapping the keys (Start to Home and Music to Menu are usually preferred) and installing a launcher (usually either the honeycomb launcher or Zeam). It's worth noting that long pressing the back button also can work as the Home key, but you cannot double-click it since it requires a long press.
