    I am trying to do what is in this video but I am having a problem it will never connect on Fire TV at all and I have restarted the Fire TV and cut ADB debugging off and on and cut it off and restarted the Fire TV and still get a connection issue and I don’t know what to do to fix this either and the person talks about work arounds but doesn’t explain how to do all of them either.
    Does anybody know how to fix these problems at all
     



    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


      Download

    at 4:30 he explains about connections. one of the suggestions was to download the adb app and install it on your phone or tablet to get setup and then launch it on your firestick making sure to use the same ip address that your firestick uses.

    he also says that it works on the 2nd gen firestick as well as the current one....do you have the right stick?

    Well he mentioned both the Fire Stick and the Fire TV and I don’t know what to do because he doesn’t seem to reply to people comments when they need help

    Do you think I could connect by Windows 10 PC to the Fire TV though ADB and enter the words that way

    No. You're gonna need a firestick, period.

    I don’t understand why you say that when he clearly stated Firestick and Fire TV

    You have a fire TV cube...
    You do not have a firestick.
    You do not have a fire TV.
    You do not have a smart phone.
    You cannot do this with ONLY A FIRE TV CUBE....
    Again, you'll need a firestick or fire TV.

    Box, cube, whatever. Bottom line is that alone is not going to work.

    Ok but I have seen in YouTube videos it says you can access ADB from your computer to the Fire TV will that work for a work around for the connection issues with Remote ADB Shell

    I don't have a Fire TV box but I do have an old TV box that I can access and create apps on. I use adb over tcp/ip from either Windows (although that is broken at the moment, as per my post) or from Linux.
    What is it exactly that you are trying to do?

    I'm trying to expand the memory of my Fire TV. I followed the steps from the link that you posted but I'm stuck after step #20. After I click CONNECT I get this message:
    "Connecting to (myipaddress:5555)
    Please make sure the target device has network ADB enabled. You may need to accept a prompt on the target device if you are connecting to it for the first time from this device"
    Any ideas why am I getting this message? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
