I would like to use rom collection browser with an emulator installed on my firestick using ABDfire but can't find where the emulator is stored on my fire stick in my file manager? Where do apps get stored using ABDfire? Is there a default location?

Erm I think most stuff gets stored in Android/data (most emulators data just sits in the main part of your storage anyway at Sd card0/ ) & to be honest I do not believe that you can use an emulator with a fire stick, 1. you have no usb, 2. That means no controller & 3. & you cant use an emulator with a amazon remote (well saying that I did test M.A.M.E with one & configured the remote with it turned on it's side & played Streetfighter 2 but that was on the AFTV2 main unit & not the stick version), if you want emulators get the AFTV2 it's on sale at the moment for £65!

Hope this helps If sof press that thanks button

I have the emulator working on the firestick and I'm using an 8bitdo Bluetooth controller that also works however , I would like to access the emulator using rom collection browser in kodi but was having trouble finding the file location. I've looked in the file manager and also es explorer but it doesn't show the apps in the folder you suggested?

Try looking here-

sdcard0/android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/kodi/addons

I'm sure that's the location your looking for

Hi all,

Similar issue, different app. I can't find the data location for apps installed through the app store on the fire stick. Netflix, emby, etc don't show up in the normal location.
I'm special looking for the location that the Smart IPTV app saves it's playlist info. Any help appreciated!!
