=== Few bash snippets ===
@Source (https://jonfhancock.com/bash-your-way-to-better-android-development-1169bc3e0424)
=== Using tail -n
//Use tail to remove the first line. Actually two lines. The first one is just a newline. The second is “List of devices attached.”
$ adb devices | tail -n +2
=== Using cut -sf
// Cut the last word and any white space off the end of each line.
$ adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1
=== Using xargs -I
// Given the -I option, xargs will perform an action for each line of text that we feed into it.
// We can give the line a variable name to use in commands that xargs can execute.
$ adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1 | xargs -I X echo X aw yiss
=== Three options below together
// Will print android version of all connected devices
adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf -1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell getprop ro.build.version.release
=== Using alias
-- Example 1
alias tellMeMore=echo
tellMeMore "hi there"
Output => hi there
-- Example 2
// Define alias
alias apkinstall="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X install -r $1"
// And you can use it later
apkinstall ~/Downloads/MyAppRelease.apk // Install an apk on all devices
-- Example 3
alias rmapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X uninstall $1"
rmapp com.example.myapp // Uninstall a package from all devices
-- Example 4
alias clearapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell pm clear $1"
clearapp com.example.myapp // Clear data on all devices (leave installed)
-- Example 5
alias startintent="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell am start $1"
startintent https://twitter.com/JonFHancock // Launch a deep link on all devices
Setting up your .bash_profile
Finally, to make this all reusable even after rebooting your computer (aliases only last through the current session), we have to add these to your .bash_profile. You might or might not already have a .bash_profile, so let’s make sure we append to it rather than overwriting it. Just open a terminal, and run the following command
touch .bash_profile && open .bash_profile
This will create it if it doesn’t already exist, and open it in a text editor either way. Now just copy and paste all of the aliases into it, save, and close.
alias startintent="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell am start $1"
alias apkinstall="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X install -r $1"
alias rmapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X uninstall $1"
alias clearapp="adb devices | tail -n +2 | cut -sf 1 | xargs -I X adb -s X shell pm clear $1"

I tested this code in Android 7, exactly in Beelink GS1, it really is not Android TV, it's usually android versions used for tableds
Regard

Check your settings for hdmi.

audioManager.setParameters("audio_devices_out_active=AUDIO_HDMI"); | This line sets the active audio output device to HDMI.

I think you must go low level for succeed with this and it is really hard to know but if you are really a hardcode hacker and wanna go deep monitor /proc and /sys dirs when you changing output and you willl probably see wich file has been updated recently if you are quick.

Howevert, using setParameters() with custom string parameters is somewhat unconventional and may not be officially supported or documented by Android. This means the behavior could vary between devices or Android versions, and there is a risk that it might not work consistently across all Android TV devices.

You might can find something useful with:

echo "system\nglobal\nsecure" | xargs -n 1 settings list|grep audio 

Please notice to make the settings updated in realtime you should use content input or output for content insert --uri content://system/settings/... in adb for example

Thanks for help 😀, this level is so high for, anyway I got work in this device and I gave it to my brother, so I can't test on this device

Hey i have a FireTV and want to turn off the tv it is connected to. I have the FireTV in my HomeAssistant and im sending adb commands trough it. If i power it off trough HA the stick only goes in standby and the tv is still powered on. I know its possible the the stick turns off the tv since i can say to alexa "turn off tv" and the stick turns the tv off. I tried some commands like input or echo 0x40 0x36 but nothing worked so far.

You can try using adb shell the command getevent, maybe it can capture event poweroff from remote control and then use sendevent to replicate event

Here is a script of mine you can use for getevent , it will capture all touches and create the adb shell commands in realtime.

Hi.
There is a way to push a file (via adb push) to system/etc folder, on non-rooted Android 14 (Samsung S22)? The system is read-only, so there is no way to push a file, right? Or push function is another thing than copy/paste?

You are correct, there is no way to bypass this. /system path holds locksettings.db and other folders so that would be a big security issue if that was possible.

How do I find the full path for executing the adb pull command when I plug my Android phone to my windows machine?

you can use /sdcard/[yourfile here] or /storage/self/primary/(internal storage located near the file /storage, you can find the internal storage first). ex: u want store file yourfile.png to /sdcard/pictures/ u must use this command adb pull /sdcard/pictures /[wherethepictures]/yourfile.png

I'm not sure if I get this right maybe @ItzKazuki answer is the one you looking for, however if you want to find a file and where it is stored on the device, you can use find

adb shell find /sdcard -iname "*file*" -type f 

When the file is found, use the above command from @ItzKazuki for "pull" the file to your pc

Thank you so much. I dont even have a sdcard, but the path worked fine. I did a adb pull request on my 110 GB large DCIM folder and it took me like 4 hours to transfer the files.

What would I do if I want to do another backup but without copying all over again?
Maybe also copying only the files that are different from the old stack and also put the new files into another directory so the folder gets not bigger and bigger each time?

You guys are very smart, I like that!

What are your suggestions? Want me to jazz up the command options, wuseman style?

Check this out, it's blazing fast, over 100% quicker than the boring old default.

Execute -h on all options in cmd list for find valid commands in shell

cmd -l | xargs -n 1 -P $(( $(nproc) + 1 )) sh -c 'cmd "$0" -h'  2>/dev/null

Dump all cmd commands with -h option ready to use

cmd -l | xargs -n 1 -P $(( $(nproc) + 1 )) sh -c 'echo "cmd $0" -h' 2>/dev/null

Wow, what a journey it's been over the years! Your guidance and expertise have truly been a beacon for many of us navigating the complexities of ADB and beyond.

Your knack for mastering new challenges and pushing the envelope in this field has set a benchmark that's incredibly inspiring. The way you've shared your insights, always venturing into new territories with curiosity and rigor, has made a lasting impact.

I just wanted to take a moment to sincerely thank you for all the wisdom you've shared here on GitHub. Your presence has not only enriched our knowledge but has also sparked a passion for exploration and innovation in so many of us.

As you venture into new endeavors beyond GitHub, I wish you nothing but the best. May your journey be filled with excitement, success, and endless opportunities for growth.

And let me just say, the way you've showcased the use of cmd commands in such a detailed and practical manner is nothing short of remarkable!

cmd -l | xargs -n 1 -P $(( $(nproc) + 1 )) sh -c 'cmd "$0" -h'  2>/dev/null

Is just insane! This will also skip everything that is not available.

Take care, and once again, a massive thank you

Command for IMEI number returns with Can't find service: iphonesybinfo. I think its supposed to be adb shell dumpsys iphonesubinfo but that just returns nothing as well.

Is there an ADB command to disable a broadcast receiver of a specific app? Just as autostarts app does it using root, but I want to do it using ADB since my device isn't rooted.

For Android 12 and up (including latest Android 14 update), system files are "read only" and do not support copy, replacing or editing even if the phone is rooted. You can get the root access (via Magisk, etc), you can see the system files, and... this is all you can do. What you have to do is making the system partition RW. For some phones will work, but for most of them, not.
