Broadcast Intent

I'm using the adb shell on android and want to use the same thing on bb10.

I have an android ported app.


On android i could use the command:

"adb shell am broadcast -a com.example.example.EXAMPLE"

for sending intents from the PC.


Is it possible on BB10?

Re: Broadcast Intent



In my experience for this purpose adb usually works as expected with BB10 too.

If you want to do everything from the command line, you need to do the following:

- use blackberry-connect.bat from the blackberry tools sdk bin folder to connect to your device

- use adb connect DEVICE_IP to connect adb


If adb has already connected from eclipse, then you can go straight to the command line and do your tests.
