Sending broadcast

suggest change

It’s possible to send broadcast to BroadcastReceiver with adb.

In this example we are sending broadcast with action and string extra in bundle 'foo'='bar':

adb shell am broadcast -a action --es foo "bar"

You can put any other supported type to bundle, not only strings:

–ez  - boolean –ei  - integer –el  - long –ef  - float –eu  - uri –eia - int array (separated by ‘,’) –ela - long array (separated by ‘,’) –efa - float array (separated by ‘,’) –esa - string array (separated by ‘,’)

To send intent to specific package/class -n or -p parameter can be used. Sending to package:
