In Settings, scroll down till you see “Security & restrictions.” It’s worth noting that my screenshots may look a little different than yours, since I’m using a Nexus Player running Android 7.0 for this tutorial. The process is still the same, though.

In the Security menu, you’re going to toggle “Unknown sources” on. When you hit the toggle, a warning will show—accept that and you’re on your way.

1. When you open the STB emu app for the first time you’ll see the screen below and from here you can select the “configure” option.

2. If you see a bluescreen that’s completely normal. You can use mouse cursor of your firestick remote and select upper right hand to reveal on-screen remote. Click on the 3 dots to get the drop down menu and enter the settings.

In this case, a MAC address was generated for you to edit the default MAC to match the one created.
