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. seamlessly)....
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 ...
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 ...
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:
Some apps that shows up in quick search on Play Store:
Samba Network Music Player -- runs using Samba sharing and folder (having music) should be shared (via Properties).
Listen to your network stored music collection as if it was all on your phone!
Enjoy music right away, no complicated setup required. Samba Player works with shared folders from ...
Make sure your phone is accessible from internet as explained here.
You need a rooted device.
Android phones nowadays aren't those old low-end devices, they can run a full-featured SSH server happily. And it's an easy recipe:
Get fully static sshd binary for your phone's architecture. See details below.
Create /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. To add a ...
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
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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):
Note: You would need root access to run any command mentioned below for Android 4.2.1.
Contrary to traditional desktop OS, apps in Android are called upon using their component, an Activity. While developers can call the activities using the programming, the end-users are left with command-line to do the calling.
Android has an Activity Manager am to ...
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.
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
All existing non-root-required product works at a very slow frame rate: 0.8 frames/second for a typical screen size of 720x1024, so they are not suitable for realtime display purpose.
"sji android screen capture" will fit your needs, No root required. Just with PC's Browser. Works at frame rate of 4+ for fullscreen of 1080x1920, 8+ fps for 320xauto down-...
It might be a bit late but I had a similar issue and found a genius idea that might help others.
If you have an OTG cable, you can plug in a mouse and use that to unlock the phone, then cancel / change it as you normally would.
Hope this helps!
in your phone, go to recovery, wipe/ clear cache then reboot the phone. wait for 5 minutes, then through this link to lock the pin with new pin https://www.google.co.in/android/devicemanager
use the newly entered pin in the above link to unlock ur device
i forgot to tell you how to clear cache.Press and hold the Volume Down button, then press and hold the ...
Yes, Android Device Manager will send the phone the Lock and Erase message as soon as it comes online and starts communicating with Google's servers. When the wipe occurs you will receive an email stating when and where it happened.
I'm assuming you locked the device through Android Device Manager. But yes you need to really edit your question to make it more understandable. Shut down is also not an appropriate term to mean locked.
If you indeed used Android Device Manager to lock the device then you were requested to enter a password . You will use that password to unlock the phone.
Try Vysor first. As long as USB debugging is on you shouldn't even need to do anything on the phone to get it running. Mouse simulates touch while keyboard input is passed through. If you don't type in English then input method support might be a bit clumsy.
Yes this did used to be possible, it is still possible but it requires more on the target device these days.
On below Android 5.0 , it was easy to do what you're saying, however it started to become apparent very quickly that the majority of people did not use this for its intended purpose...
For example, you could previously check on elderly people's ...
