Default Configure FireTV with XBMC, then backup to restore to 2nd unit

Hi all,

I just configured a FireTV with XBMC and bunch of addons etc.. What I want to do now is backup that xbmc configuration so that I can restore the same thing on another unit that I plan to sell.

I used adbFire to backup XBMC but I'm not sure it doesn't look like it pulled a lot of the files down or properly.

Can someone tell me how I can go about achieving what I want? Thanks!

There is an add on you can download under programs within XBMC that will back everything up.

Yah I found that addon its XBMC Backup.

However once I did it and saved the thing on the sdcard folder of the FireTV, how exactly do I get it off?

I know I can use the adb pull command, however that would take forever as god knows how many files are there..

If the boxes are rooted you can use stickmount to mount an external USB drive, then transfer the backups there (or potentially backup straight there if the add on settings allow it)

Or use Sambadroid to setup a share, and transfer it over from there.
