Misc: Amazon Fire TV Remote Home Button not working (but long press does!)

This happens to my Fire TV remotes randomly, and I'm unclear as to a specific cause.  Pressing the "Home" button no longer takes me to the home screen.  It's effectively dead, but a long press works fine.  Why?  Unsure, seems to be a bug that hasn't been flushed out by Amazon, but thankfully a post in Amazon forums by Tolga presents a possible workaround using adb.

See this post on how to use/get adb and setup your fire stick to work w/ adb.  

Then come back here for steps specific to this problem:

  1. Connect to your fire stick using adb
    • adb connect <IPAddressofYourFireStick>
    • For example: adb connect
  2. If successful, you should see a return of something like this:
    • connected to <IPAddressofYourFireStick>:5555
  3. adb shell settings --user 0 put secure user_setup_complete 1
