For root users only! If you want to do some of the lower-level stuff with your Android phone, you’re going to need ADB, which stands for Android Debug Bridge — basically a way of connecting your phone to your computer. But what if you don’t have your USB cable with you? Well, a neat little app in the Market can solve that problem for you by allowing you to connect wirelessly to your Android device through ADB using your Wifi signal. Not only that but you can also use it to connect to your application editor (i.e. Eclipse) and use it to test your app on it.
- You must have Windows and must have a Rooted Android device
- You must have installed the SDK Android
- Download App ADB Wireles Then connect to Wifi on your phone (it must be the same Wifi network that your computer is connected to)
- Now, open the ADB Wireless app on your phone and push the big red button (allow Superuser permissions when it asks).
- The app should display “adb connect 192.168.2.20:5555” similar to the picture, Remember this line.
- Open a command line on your computer and use “adb connect 192.168.2.20:5555” and you’re connected to your phone via ADB just as if you were using your USB cable.
