adbWireless

Wireless adb

adbWireless lets you access your phone through adb without the need of a wired USB connection. The app provides you with the phone’s local IP address so that you can use it on your computer to connect to it. Beware, the access will be granted to all devices on the same wireless network - it would not be sensible to activate this service on any network that is not of your best trust.

A simple toggle widget is included.

Requires Root: Yes.

Status: Original source code repo vanished

    Permissions
    • control vibration
      Allows the app to control the vibrator.
    • view Wi-Fi connections
      Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.
    • connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
      Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.
    • run at startup
      Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
    • have full network access
      Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
