XBMC has a "file manager" function that allows you to browse the xbmc filesystem.
In case anyone was wondering, the addon saved to root filesystem / sdcard / android / data / org.xbmc.xbmc / files / .xbmc / addons

Default adbFire 1.06 for Linux

adbFire 1.06 for Linux

http://www.jocala.com/adbfire.html

Place adbl106 folder somewhere you have r/w privs.

Distros tested:

Ubuntu 14.04 32/64

Run adbfiles/install32.sh script for Ubuntu
64bit to resolve library dependencies

Linux Mint 17 64/32

Debian test 32bit

Fedora 20 32bit
Run script adbfiles/fedora.sh to enable ADB shell

It may work on untested distros. Run ldd adbFire to check
library dependencies that need resolution for your distro.

adbFire is released under the GPL V3. Full source available at

Default Samba File Sharing

I like the thought of Samba being persistent between boots, but is there a way to invoke this if I already had Samba FileSharing sideloaded? I dont see any options to check off in the settings. Right now if I reboot I have to re-enable the fileserver manually.

I don't make any provisions for a sideloaded samba fileserver. What does the sideloaded samba do for you that adbFire doesn't?

It doesnt do anything other than its already installed, lol. When you say "persistent between boots", does that mean that if you boot the device you wont have to enable the filesharing program to come back on? Thats all I'm after.

OK, and you are using the Samba FileSharing by FunkyFresh? Is there something in that program that I can check off in setting to make it persistent on boot? I guess I'll just install it tonight and go from there. Sorry for all the questions. Thanks.

I'm using the open source smbd and nmbd daemons from FunkyFresh (with dev permission), not the FunkyFresh program itself. There's nothing to check off, other than the persistence checkbox for USB/Samba. You'll need to uninstall your sideloaded Samba if you're using adbFire's USB/Samba options.

Sounds good, I'll give it a try tonight. Will there be a password needed when other devices try to access the share?

I find it actually makes for a good media server with my usb hard drive attached to my AFTV then have my other AFTV's in the house access it over SMB for streaming. Thanks.
