ADB over Wifi

ADB over WiFi

To debug the behaviour of your application while an accessory is plugged, you can't use ADB through a USB cable.

In this case, to debug applications, you need to link your device to ADB over WiFi.

Steps to configure the ADB connection over WiFi

  • Connect the device and the computer to the same WiFi network

  • Plug the device to the computer with a USB cable to configure the connection.

  • On the computer command line type: "adb tcpip 5555"

  • On the computer command line type: "adb shell ip addr show wlan0" and copy the IP address after the "inet" until the "/". You can also go inside the settings of the device to retrieve the IP address in Settings/about/Status.

  • On the computer command line type: "adb connect ip-address-of-device:5555"

  • You can disconnect the device and check with "ADB devices" that the device is still detected.
