Personally, I use ADBWireless (alternate link) with my G1 on CM5 because I had problems with the USB driver working correctly between my computer and my G1. However, I had problems with this app in CM4 (to test against Android 1.6) on my G1. I was able to get it to work on CM4 with Remote ADB.

Note, however, that these connect to the device via ADB via wifi, not Bluetooth.

You'll pull up a command line on your computer and type adb connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5555 (x's being your ip address of the phone over wifi). You'll have to run this in the tools directory of your Android SDK, or you need to add your Android SDK tools directory to your global PATH variable so you can run adb from anywhere.

Your phone will show up as its ip address:port number in the list of devices to push your application to, just as if it was plugged in directly via usb.

I haven't tried this myself, how about trying ADBWireless. It uses Wifi instead of Bluetooth.

Link appears to be broken. Do you know if the homepage has moved? –  eldarerathis Nov 25 '13 at 15:22

I'm using Easy Remote and it works well on Android 2.3.7. You can find downloads and information on its website.
