Launch on Boot – Details & Information

After you have installed the Launch on Boot application it’s important to mention a few items.

First, if you click the home button on your remote you will see it takes us back to the original Fire TV interface.

Therefore, if you want to keep using the Wolf Launcher do not hit the home button.

Therefore, you must train yourself to click the back button on your remote instead of the home button.

The back button will always return you to the Wolf Launcher.
