Install programs without the Android SDK, move and create backups for your Kodi data or move it to external drives using this software solution
AdbLink aka AdbFire is a lightweight piece of software specially designed for devices running Kodi for Android that enables you to manage your data more efficiently and seamlessly install apps without having to bother with the Android SDK.
Entails a medium-difficulty configuration
While the installation is quick and straightforward, there is a chance that you could experience some difficulties connecting your device. Consequentially, make sure that the proper permissions are set in the firewall, the IP address you are employing is correct and that the gadget is set up correctly.
In case you continue viewing the device as Offline, although you all of the above are set, then one way you can try to fix this is by toggling the ADB Debugging on and off from the dedicated menus in your Fire TV.
You will be happy to learn that you can connect as many devices as want and that adding a new device is a rather intuitive process. To put it simply, you can add a device by specifying a description, address, the Kodi partition, package name, file path, the media center as well as the Pull Folder.
Enables you to create backups for your Kodi data
As you probably already hinted, creating backups for your Kodi data entails accessing the Button with the same name. It is worth mentioning that it is recommended that you run Kodi at least one time before you can use the function, as the app cannot create backups of empty directories. At the same time, if you are running other apps other than Kodi, you may have to change the package name and File Path.
In addition to backups, you can also install applications on your device without having to go through the trouble of installing the Android SDK. The other noteworthy functions of the utility include erasing, screenshot, restore, console, open SFTP, splash screen, remote or view a log, just to name a few.
A useful utility that can help you manage Kodi data more efficiently

We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used adbLink (adbFire) and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
