Hi, when I run the Android Control.exe file on my windows it opens 2 things:
1. a black window which quicly disapears (seems its calling DroidATScreen-1.1.jar which FYI is trying to open with Java)
2. the "Ultimate touch screen control for Android" window.. which is the one with the keys
Doesnt open my Nexus 5 Screen on the laptop.

Nexus5, USB Debugging is enabled, connected via USB cable.
Do i need to do any installations on the PC?

This is hilarious! The screen died on my rooted 2013 Kindle Fire 7 about a month ago. I knew it was still alive inside (could see the files and was even able to reroot and wipe with the KFSOWI rooting tool), but with no screen I kinda gave up on it.

Then today I tried Android Control and not only can i "see" the tablet, but the touchscreen works! Of course, gestures are hit and miss (pun intended); i can only approximate where i should touch based on what i see on the pc.

Anyway, pretty fun and funny. Not sure what i'll do with it, but there are possibilities now--like trying something really reckless! Thanks!

Thumbs up
Great, great app. Thanks a lot for it.

For those who need to activate debugging with the broken screen, these have been my stepts to get it. In my case is for a Xperia Arc (boot.img) with stock ICS ROM (4.1.B.0.587) and UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER, but it may work for almost all devices:

- Get an stock kernel or a costomized one with CWM if you prefeer. I have used this one:

- Get Android Kernel Kitchen 0.3.1. It is a bit confuse in the way it works, but if you take care moving your files from inpu/output folders, and following the instructions it is really easy (do not rename any file as the kitchen will ask you, it must be a bug. Only need to modify the name of the ramdisk folder in order to recompress it)

- Decompress your kernel img file with kitchen. You will get your ramdisk uncompressed. Now you must edit your default.prop file inside your ramdisk folder (use Notepad++ for it)

You must add or modify next lines:



- Recompile boot.img and flash it through flashtool or adb. Now you have USB debugging enabled. If some one wants my modified kernel here it is:


REMENBER: this boot.img file is ONLY for Xperia ARC (LT15i) with ICS ROM. For another devices or ROMs you must kitchen your own kernel

This tool literally save my ass when digitizer stopped working on my phone and I needed it to navigate to airport, home, etc. Luckily I had laptop and this app.
