I am debugging an app using a phone-PC combination which has USB issues. I can successfully establish a wifi connection using 'adb tcpip 555' then 'adb connect'

However, sometimes I can't even make the first USB connection to enable the debug listener on the phone. Is it possible to put the phone adb into listening mode (on wifi) without a USB connection?

  • @irfan -that described how to start TCPIP listening, but still requires an initial USB connection (as described in that post) – TSG Jan 18 at 21:53
