And I’m happy to report that today is the day when we have that simple way of backing up or restoring configs your Kodi device.

There are many reasons why you may want to perform these tasks, one mainly being you want to share your build with friends or more importantly want to save it incase anything happens.

  1. Does the restore work if your friends are not on the same wireless network as you? I tried to use adb fire to update my parent’s firestick but since I was not on the same network I could not connect. It’s just a tweaked existing build with better add ons and submenus edited. Walking them through it would be difficult.
