Today airtel pushed some update and now this has stopped working. Unable to force stop the airtel xstream app. Anybody else facing this issue? Does anybody know how to fix it now?

No you cannot. Both xtream and Bing has this company malware with without renewal makes the box useless. So is the tatasky firestick.

Rather buy Amazon firestick 2020 (with dolby atmos)not the lite and install thop tv and watch the everything you want plus play games.

A lot of TV channels have live stream from allover the world.plus watch entire TV series plus latest movies without downloading 2gb or 4gb movie files.If best part is in last 6 months I have not renewed my Amazon prime either.

Installed atv launcher, launch on boot from playstore in stb.
Open launch on boot and set – atv launcher – as launch app.
Enable developer option, usb debug – in xstream stb.

Then installed ‘remote adb shell’ app in android mobile. Connect both xstream and mobile to same wifi.
Use command to uninstall com.airtel app.

Should work, if you do above steps properly.

I Followed 2 or 3 YouTube videos to finish the setup.

I think this is based on old firmware. Recently one month ago the firmware updated. So we are not able to uninstall airtel app anymore. As it became system app.

Will still try launch on boot
