Great app that we actually recommend on our site as the best method for installing XBMC to the FireTV.

Anyways second FireTV with XBMC 13.2 sideloaded the old fashioned way via minimal adb.
AFTV is 51.1.3.0_user_513011820
Launching adbFire 1.09 it connects just fine (Amazon updates on, adb running, device connected), but when I go to push / pull userdata or addons I get a dialog for selecting the file I want to pull but it says /system/bin/sh: su: not found - which I take to mean it needs super user to work?

If so, I am guessing I need to root the AFTV - but I think I read over on XBMC forums that this Amazon update that it took prevents that. Yes? No?


I've confirmed your problem. Part of the "push" routine uses a root-required function. I'll figure out a workaround and look for other xbmc problems before the next update.

chmod error, system/etc/init.d/02sshd

I was unable to duplicate your error. Is this repeatable?

Not sure if this would help others, but would it be possible to have the option of either installing Classic TV or ikono TV. I've been using 1.07 because upon rebooting, saying "classic tv app" into the microphone and installing that way is much easier than manually typing in ikono tv on the search.

This would also help when I set up a box for someone else. I set it up using my amazon account. After I log out to give it to my friend, the classic tv app disappears as does the XBMC icon. It's much easier once they log in to their account to just instruct them to hold down the microphone and say "Classic TV App", have it appear, and have them install that app, than do the manual search for ikono tv. Anyway...just my 2 cents.

I miss the classic tv app option, but i want all the new updates in your program as well.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll consider it.

Hi Jocala, thank you for all your work. When you install the sftp server, what is the username and password?

This is a cross-post from another forum. I thought it might be useful here

root/password -- the userid should default to root

The command-line "ssh "helper" apps are:


Manually start the server with a password (no spaces)
Code:
sshstart
Usage: sshstart password -- arguments: the password you want to use

Kill sshd immediately
Code:
sshstop
Usage: sshstop -- no arguments, immediately kills ssh server
Show sshd status
Code:
sshstatus
Usage: sshstatus -- no arguments, gives ssh server status
Create sshd startup script with given password
Code:
sshinit
Usage: sshinit password -- arguments: the password you want to use (no spaces)
this program creates the file /etc/init.d/02sshd that starts sshd at boot
Delete sshd startup at boot script
Code:
sshboot
Usage: sshboot -- arguments: rm
Typing sshboot rm deletes the file /etc/init.d/02sshd that starts sshd at boot
