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!

You should try LogMeIn - Ignition for Android. I find it much faster than VNC when accessing my Macbook from my Windows PC. I'd image it works just as well with Android.

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

You could setup a FTP server on your computer and use AndFTP to connect to it.

Try Remote Web Desktop application for android: Remote Web Desktop

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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:

We just released VMLite VNC Server for Android in Google Play Store. It's first vnc server that works on non-rooted Android devices.

No longer true : So the answer is no. Please see other answers, which give more details how to control an android device without rooting it.

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

Seems like "Droid VNC server" doing the job.

I just released a free app on Google Play called aRDP Free, which supports seamless RDP over SSH. Here is the link to it: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.iiordanov.freeaRDP I also have an app which supports seamless VNC over SSH in Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.iiordanov.freebVNC

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. ...

I'm not 100% sure but I think it should work with VNC Viewer (paid app but worth its price). I'll give it a try when I'm at home and edit the answer.
