I have Wireless Adb, but really I'd like to be able to connect wirelessly to the phone when I'm out and about, and it's not possible to connect via a router.

Phone is CM Marshmellow, an s5.

Laptop is Windows 8.

Can I do this? How?

  • adb via WiFi you mean? – xavier_fakerat Jun 20 '17 at 11:08

    Wifi Direct. Wifi that doesn't have to go through a router. Same principle as Miracast, but instead of connecting a phone to a display dongle it will be connecting a phone to a computer, in such a way that the computer can send adb commands. – Ne Mo Jun 20 '17 at 11:20
  • Here are my thoughts... if you don't want the connection via a router, would it be possible for you to create a local WiFi hotspot either from your Windows PC or mobile hotspot from your android device, then use adb via tcp or simple adb? – xavier_fakerat Jun 20 '17 at 14:59

    My carrier shuts me down if I do wifi hotspot from phone. From PC is a possibility though, I'll give it a go and report back. Thanks! – Ne Mo Jun 20 '17 at 15:15
