comment SSH (and SFTP) server on Android discoverable through avahi/bonjour
@glenschler I've used avahi on a Raspberry Pi and after installing it I could access my pi as rpi.local. On windows I had to install the bonjour service. I did try to access ssh/http use the SSHelper hostname (which I could see listed on a mac running dns-sd -B) but I couldn't connect to it. How do you connect to your phone by name(what name do you use) with SSHelper ?

comment SSH (and SFTP) server on Android discoverable through avahi/bonjour
@glenschler Hi, I've just tried SSHelper but I haven't figured out how to connect o ssh using the name. I've checked out the source code and it seems to use "SSHelper" as the zeroconf name, but I can't connect to it like so: ssh SSHelper:2222. Any hints/tips ? Thanks

comment Can I change some Android settings from the command line?
Thanks! I've found aapt in the build-tools folder. I can run it now. I can't seem to find com.android.settings.apk though. I've tried: find / -name 'com.android.settings.apk' on the phone, but nothing came up :( Can you please let me know where I can find com.android.settings.apk ?

That's really cool. I tried to find other commands doing aapt dump xmltree com.android.settings.apk AndroidManifest.xml but that didn't work on my phone(aapt not found). How can I see a list of the available settings ?

comment How can I easily copy files from an Android device to a computer wirelessly via command line?
@BryanDenny sounds good. I see many ADB wireless apps on the play store. Which one did you have in mind ?Also, adb seems to only work with one device at a time. I will need to control many.

I've installed TerminalIDE and I get scp with that one too, unless I'm doing it wrong. However I've managed to create links to scp using this article
