Get yourself a file manager app on your Shield. (there’s many to pick from) Assuming you have your apk already on the flash drive, plug the flash drive into the Shield, then using the file manager app you would just navigate to the USB drive.

I can tell you an even easier way if you have the Downloader app. You wouldn’t need to use the flash drive.

Oh, I thought we were gonna download using Downloader. Might be easier.

I believe I downloaded the first one. But I am not sure which one is correct ? Thanks

Alright. Let me go make you a shortcut code for the Downloader app. Hold on one second.

I have downloader app on Nvidia. But I do not know the URL for JioCinema. Thanks

Okay. Just put the code below into your Downloader app. It should download the JioCinema apk.

Here’s the url also if you want it.

Hi Shayde,
I am getting this message when I use this URL Redirect: 602560 | AFTVnews URL Shortener | Codes for Downloader on Amazon Fire TV and Google Android TV in Downloader.
“The web browser is disabled in this version of the app”

What version of Downloader do you have? Is it an old version? The new one is 1.4.4

Also you can check in the Settings section of your Downloader app. (it’s on the left side in the orange column) Click Settings and see if Automatically Open Web Pages in Browser has a check mark next to it. If it doesn’t, click to make it have a check mark.

Thanks Shayde, Yes I have 1.4.2 downloader. How do I download latest Downloader?

Do you have a browser on your Android device where you can type this in?
Or I know it sounds crazy, but see if your current Downloader will let you type that in and download it.

Will try first from downloader or I will get a browser downloaded and try the downloader.apk. Thanks bunch
