SSH connection to Gecko?
Hello,

I am using Gecko as my third Kodi player. I just did a quick setup and wanted to connect through ssh oder samba to create or change the advancedsettings xml of Kodi or SPMC.

I am using a mysql database on my NAS for storing my library for all players. This way all players are synchronized and show the same files and covers, when I create, correct or update these on one of the Kodi players.

This works great with Kodi on Raspberry Pi2 and Intel NUC, but how do I do this on Gecko?

download one of the many SSH apps for android and sideload it if you cant get it in the store. Not sure if the box needs rooting or not. I received mine last night but have not had a chance to open it up yet

RE: SSH connection to Gecko?
If you run cpu-z you should be able to quickly see if the device is rooted already:

Interesting reading there.

Use any SSH or Telnet app via Google Play. I've used the Telnet one before on another device OK.

edit:
Ran CPU-Z which reports not rooted.
