Hi, I have a BB2 Pro box, running CoreELEC version 9.0.3, I want to access kodi “addons and app_data” folders so I can add various folders/files, I have a modded kodi skin I want to add to the box and various plugins . I can SSH into the CoreELEC part of the box using winscp, but can’t find kodi files I want , I find a kodi folder in “usr/share/”, but it doesn’t contain any of the addons I have installed and the userdata folder doesn’t contain an app_data folder so I assume its some kind of root folder and not the one I want ?
update- skin installed using usb stick , will do same with plugins i think , just thought SSH would have been easier.
The kodi directory you want is in root/storage/ and is hidden by default, in WinSCP goto View->Preferences->Panels and tick the very top option Show hidden files. This can also be activated using (Ctrl + Alt + H), once done you should now see the .kodi directory.
Enter via ssh and install entware:
then install midnight commander:
opkg install mc
mc command now you can run the midnight commander and you can access all files and folders, use
exit to close mc
thanks very much.
I would recommend SFTP Net Drive 2017 https://www.nsoftware.com/sftp/drive/
This will allow you to map your CoreELEC box to a Windows drive letter and access it using the standard Windows file explorer.
I use coreftp lite
