adbLink is tested using the Amazon Fire TV , the Nvidia Shield and the Mi Box 3.

To allow adbLink to install Kodi the device needs some settings changes and you need the device IP address. The changes below apply to Amazon Fire TV/Stick and Android TV devices.

Amazon Fire TV/Stick
From the main (Launcher) screen of AFTV, select Settings.

1. Your IP Address is found under Settings > About > network. Make note of this address.

2. Select Device > Developer Options. Turn ADB debugging on.

For USB connections, turn USB debugging on. Please note that USB connections disable external storage.

Turn Apps from unknown sources on. This allows you to install non-store applications, e.g. Kodi.

Android TV (Nvidia Shield, Mi Box 3)

Scroll down to "Build"

Click "Build" six or seven times. This will tun on "Developer Options"

In the "Preferences" section of settings, open "Developer options"

Turn USB debugging On
Turn Network debugging On (if available)

Next, connect your device to your PC via the supplied USB cable. A dialog will pop-up on the device asking you to authorize your connection. Confirm the connection and tell the Shield to remember it.

This initial connection via USB is required. Once you have authorized the USB connection, your connection via IP address will be authorized as well.
