Why is the SportRar Icon Not Showing

Another issue you might encounter with your Amazon Fire TV Stick is when it does not load your SportRar app or show the icon.

The reason the app icon didn’t work for you, and why there is no way for you to change the app icon for SportRar apps, is because FireStick pulls the icon of official apps from an Amazon server and not from the app/APK itself. Even if you edit the icon in the APK of an official app, the Fire TV will still use the icon image stored on Amazon Appstore for that app.

If you want to edit the icon, you need to delete the app from your list of apps on Amazon. Then uninstall the SportRar app from your FireStick, clear cache/data for the Appstore app on FireStick, sync account data on Fire TV, restart the FireStick, then sideload the APK with the icon edited.
