There's no manual or FAQ I've found for the program so I'm not certain if this is the way they intended it to be used. It does work, though, and I can't see an alternative method of using USB. You need ADB installed along with the proper drivers for your device. This varies with platform and phone, so check Google or XDA. Enable USB Debugging on your ...

Webkey is my personal favorite remote control program. It turns your phone into a web server, complete with https and username/passwords with permissions you can set. So you could have an admin user with full access, and a standard user who can just see the screen. On top of built-in VNC, Webkey also gives you the ability to track your phone by GPS, connect ...

Apparently X11 can be run on the G1 via some sort of Debian image and shell app; see this XDA thread for example. I can't find any other ports of it. I use ConnectBot for "regular" SSH, I find it to be quite good. Even edited and compiled code with it!

If your computer has Bluetooth (most laptops do, and some wireless keyboards and mice connect through a bluetooth adaptor), then there are apps that will allow you to share your phone's GPS device to the PC as a bluetooth GPS adaptor. See this previous question for some of them: Can I use the Nexus-S GPS as an external GPS for another device (via ...

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts, Majk! We support end-users with Android-specific issues, but cannot help you setting up a Linux server on a device, though it was running Android before. Still, some helpful hints: There are means to control your device even with a broken screen. We've got several issues reported where people wanted to do exactly that. ...

Google's Android Device Manager service can do all of that apart from the remote control, though unless your phone has a new enough OS to have it installed by default (instead of pulled down as part of the Google Services updates) it's difficult to remove rather than impossible. Find your lost phone with Android Device manager Remotely lock Android devices ...

There are several different VLC remote apps available which will let you control audio/video playback on your PC when you are connected to the same network. It's probably not for the un-technical, but it does feel very cool controlling your "stereo" from the other end of your apartment. You will generally need to: Install VLC on your PC turn on the web ...

Install DroidMote Server on the one you want to be controlled and DroidMote Client on the one with which you want to do the controlling.

Android VNC viewer is free and works with host names, but I have not played around with it much, so I cannot vouch for quality. Alternatively you could use a hostname to ip resolver (either as an app or as a website) to find out the ip address and use that to connect. I just tried out DNS Lookup from the Android market, and it looks like a pretty decent ...

As replied in another related question, Team viewer had recently provided app for Samsung phones. After installing this app in, the phone can be remotely accessed from PC. The following is the screen shot from its site:

As your device is rooted, you could try to install come SSHd app: QuickSSHd explicitly mentions root support DropBear SSH Server even requires it SSHDroid mentions root as option So all 3 of them should be able to "export" the full file system via SSH. So on a Mac (and Linux/Unix/BSD as well) you could directly connect from a terminal, or integrate the ...

The answer to my question turned out to be rather trivial (at least for my rooted HTC Incredible). Trivial to the point that I'm embarrassed I asked the question in the first place! To explore/manipulate my phone's file system, all I had to do was connect it to my computer via USB, and choose "Disk drive" as the connection type. Then the storage on my ...

If you're asking for a remote desktop solution that allows you to view/control your desktop/laptop from your Android mobile device over local wireless network, the answer is: Any RDP/VNC app. Personally I use PocketCloud by Wyse. It supports both RDP (Microsoft Windows, built into the OS) and VNC (cross platform, if you have a Linux computer or Apple toy ...

I attempted to get VNC options working, but they're all buggy. In particular the keyboard mappings and clunky and the screens never seem to render correctly. I even wrote to an author offering money for improvements but never got anything back. Teamviewer 8 is the only solution I've found where it actually works the way it is supposed to (i.e. ...

You can hae a look at AirDroid for desktop SMS. It works as a kind of web server on your phone, which means you have to access it from a secure web page (downside: works only inside the same WiFi network). But next to smses you can do a lot more with it, but I recommend you have a look at it yourself.

For that you need the full version of TeamViewer. reference: http://www.teamviewer.com/en/help/40-Can-TeamViewer-be-used-within-a-local-network-LAN-only.aspx You can establish Remote control sessions on your local network directly by using IP addresses or computer names. By default this feature is deactivated because software firewalls may open an ...

Yes, its possible. But, not with ADB. ADB server runs only in Android (Device or Emulator). On PC, you get ADB client only. With USB, you've got a network. Install a FTP, Samba or SSH server (like FileZilla Server) on PC & use a FTP, Samba or SSH client app (like AndFTP) on Android device to pull files from PC. You can do the same over air, too. Just ...

Making an app "impossible to remove" is, of course, impossible to accomplish. Nothing is impossible to remove. For other features you're looking for, I'd recommend looking into AirDroid or Cerberus.

Try a free app called AirDroid, which lets you control wirelessly your Android device from a desktop browser. This is a fragment of Play Store app description: Realtime Android screen (experimental feature, root permission required) View your Android's screen, take a screenshot, or even record a screencast. Here's a video showing some of its ...

As you already put it into your question: You might consider installing a VNC server on your mother's device. Admitted, most of them require root access, so this could be a problem. However, at least one claims to do without root: VMLite VNC Server. But it comes at a cost: There's no free version available, so you'ld have to pay about EUR 6. To give you a ...

There's an app here that allows you to do that according to the description (along with many more things): https://market.android.com/details?id=com.androidlost&hl=en If you want to code your own application then you'll want to check out this Intent and the two Intents below it (ACTION_BATTERY_LOW, ACTION_BATTERY_OKAY): ...

If your phone is rooted (which I'm assuming it is since you're running Oxygen), you could try androidscreencast. It allows you to interact with a rooted phone over USB using mouse and keyboard. It's not the fastest solution, but then again, neither is a VNC server and the like. There's a fairly decent walkthrough on how to set everything up on How-To Geek. ...

Xtralogic has a RDP client for Android. There's also Omnidesk's free app. And there's Remote. If necessary there are implementations of Teamviewer for Android, and no doubt there's VNC apps.

I'm not sure what you mean by "HDMI support", but i myself use Teamviewer. I have tested lots of programs like this for my android, and my experience tells me that this is the best app for me. I hope you get the same impression.

I've stumbled upon an X server for Android project (now available as an APK to intall from F-Droid, too): This project implements an X11 server for use with Android devices, written in Java. The X11 server runs within an Android View subclass, allowing it to be embedded in other applications. But perhaps it's a bit tricky to connect to it through X ...
