TDUK’s FireOS7 APP Shortcuts Library

There appears to be a bug on select Amazon Fire TV devices that prevents the icon of some sideloaded apps to display correctly on the Home screen and Apps screen. Instead of the app icon appearing, a gray icon with a slash through it appears. The bug seems to only affect apps that store their APK icon in a specific way, which is why some sideloaded apps are not affected.

If you install a shortcut to the application then that will always show the correct logo (even if you update the app)
