Have a look at simulating keyevents on Android and search for "KEYCODE_VOLUME_UP" and "KEYCODE_VOLUME_DOWN". Events can be generated by executing "input": #local shell: input keyevent 24 #vol up input keyevent 25 #vol down #remotely using ssh ssh your-phone input keyevent 24 #vol up ssh your-phone input keyevent 25 #vol down # 'su -c command' to make it ...

If you want to do what is essentially a 1-to-1 backup of your device, you can use a custom recovery to create a "nandroid" backup. Doing so effectively creates disk images of your NAND partitions (hence "nandroid") that you can restore from at a later point. This is going to vary a bit by device and recovery system, but in general if you want to perform a ...

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 ...

If you're in the USA, use Google Voice - it allows a user to make voice calls while on WiFi and also allows sending / receiving SMS. Also look at Tablet Talk for your SMS needs at least. In early development, there's also Phone Link If you're working on your tablet, I believe the simplest solution for voice calls is to have a bluetooth handsfree paired ...

I've tried several solutions like TabletTalk, Desksms, but none of them was really reliable. Two weeks ago I found mysms which works very similar, but for me works a lot better. You install mysms on your phone and on your tablet (there's a seperate tablet app for this) and it immediately syncs your messages from your phone to your tablet. If you send a ...

You could simply use a bluetooth/wifi mouse app like PRemoteDroid. There are a bunch of others, and generally speaking they just allow your device to be used as a mouse/keyboard input. If you can pair with your PC it should work, although I've never tried it myself (I do use PRemoteDroid to pair with and remotely control my Xoom, though; works great). ...

There are a lot of possibilities to remotely administrate and use an Android Device from your PC -- including, but not restricted to reading/sending SMS. Take a look at the following apps/links: Airdroid is simply to be installed on your Android-Device and can then be accessed via a web-browser ("browser-based"). Manages SMS/MMS, Apps, photos, videos, ...

If you are using Google Two Step authorisation, then you can revoke the one-time password that you assigned to the phone remotely from your Google account's settings, I don't think that this is possible unless you are using the Two Step authorisation. Go to your Google Account Settings page, click the Edit link beside "2 step verification", click "Manage ...

The Android Debug Bridge (adb) can do pretty much everything you want. It is part of the Android SDK, just download the SDK and enable USB debugging on your phone. You can get a shell with the command adb shell and you can get files from the phone with adb pull All the commands are documented in the first link I gave. Another way to get any file from ...

If GPS accuracy is enough for you, Plan B is just what you need. You can remotely install it via the Play Store web interface and it activates automatically, sending the phone's coordinates to your primary Google account. However, it can't play sounds on your device to help you narrow the location further.

I am practically certain that the soundwire app will do what you want it to do (if I have it the right way around).

There are multiple possibilities to remote-control your Samsung TV with your Android device. For one, there are a bunch of Samsung TV remote control apps giving you a wide range of choices. A second variant would involve FHEM on your PC (this is a home automation software, and there's a module available for Samsung TVs – I use this, so I can vouch for it) ...

Use Tablet Talk. I use this between my phone and tablet, and it works flawlessly. Auto syncs messages between the two, and forwards texts and calls to the tablet when connected. Has lots of settings to autoconnect, and suppress notifications on the phone when it pushes things to the tablet. I have it setup to connect whenever both my phone and tablet are ...

Give androidscreencast a try. You may already need to have USB Debugging enabled for it to work, but you've said you already have that enabled, so should be ok. It just needs a USB connection to the phone and goes over the ADB protocol.

You can use a USB cable and buy a USB mouse so that you can use that [a mouse] instead of touch screen. Check out a USB adapter for Android that fits your budget [and make sure it's compatible with your device] and purchase it.

The "trick" here is to employ an SMS Receiver which extends Broadcast Receiver (for example: public class SmsReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver). The SMS Receiver gains control whenever an Android phone receives an SMS. I am writing from my experience in writing 2 applications, which can notify person 'a' of the location of person 'b'. When I want the SMS ...

If you have access to the Google account on the phone, you can use Google's Android Device Manager to locate the device. This requires the phone to be powered on with location services enabled. This will notify the phone as well. If you do not have access to the Google account, you need a preinstalled tracking application, like Google+. Some more examples ...

I'd recommend installing mpd on the linux server and an mpd client on the android device. The squeezebox server software doesn't play audio directly so you would have to either install a player like SoftSqueeze or SqueezePlay on the server, or use another music application to play the mp3 stream. You didn't ask about it, but if you want to play music ...

If you are looking for a GUI you should take a look onto Droid Explorer. Basically it is a graphical frontend for adb especially developed for rooted phones. I know that it runs under Windows (.net) but AFAIR it also runs Linux using Mono.

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 ...

To my experience, headset control behaved randomly. Took me a couple of weeks to figure out why suddenly in my training sessions the music player started (wow! that button on the headset suddenly does something...). Like you, I never found any corresponding system settings. To get rid of that "random system", I took a look around. As usual with Android, ...

I just briefly read through the manual for your television found at Kogan's website, and as far as I can tell, the only available connection interface other than the typical IR used by remote controls is network-based. That means whatever application you use has to be supported both by the serving device (i.e. your TV) as well as use the local network ...
