[Q] "Unable to connect" using ADB -- so no sideloading
My Amazon Fire TV seems to work fine. I can access the ADB Debugging option via: System>Developer>Options>Debugging. I can select "ON," and it changes to a blue highlight.
I also know the IP Address both via the Fire TV and via my router (running Tomato), where I assigned a static IP address to the Fire TV. I've tried to acces it via terminal both on my Android phone and on my Linux machine (with ADB installed).
But when I do the sequence outlined here
adb connect <ipaddress>
I get this error: "unable to connect to <ipaddress>"
Anyone have any idea why? The Fire TV is connected via wifi, but I'm not sure why that would matter.
I've seen a number of random posts around the web with the same question, but no solution. So help is definitely needed!
