RemoteFlash

Update! You Can Now Push And Install APK's To Your Device. Simply Use The PC Client As Before, Except Select An APK! No PC Client Update Required, Only The RemoteFlash APK.

**Note** If You Have Other Android Devices Running RemoteFlash Disable Their WiFi While Running "Auto-Scan". There Is No Need To Turn Off Any Other Devices.

RemoteFlash Has Been Added To Google Play! It Will Always Remain Free And Updated Here, But For Easier Updating And Download Stats, Purchase It On Google Play!

RemoteFlash allows you to flash ROMS, Mods, and Updates directly from your computer, over WiFi. You can also install APK's wirelessly. Also, a recovery that uses "OpenRecoveryScript", such as TWRP, is recommended. You may try it on CWMR, but it may not be able to flash anything depending on the build.

To use RemoteFlash simply download two files. One is a standalone Java application that you run on your computer. The other file is the RemoteFlash apk. After downloading and installing both programs, run the RemoteFlash apk. You will only need to run the app once. After opening RemoteFlash the first time just reboot your device. As soon as your device boots back up, RemoteFlash will be running. You can then open the PC client and click "Auto-Scan"(It may take anywhere between a second and two minutes to find your device), check/uncheck "Wipe Data/Cache", and click "Go". You will then be prompted to select a file, and it will be flashed directly to your device. Hopefully that's easy enough!

I hope you find RemoteFlash useful! I thought it would help save time and energy, at least for me. As for any issues you may encounter, feel free to post them here. Let me know what you think!

A big shout out goes to SystemErrorOne for his work on the new icon and hopefully his continued contributions! Thank you!

Great work! However, I don't think I will find much use in this, seeing as the phone needs to be used prior to flashing.

Would it be possible to implement something that connects to the phone based on Google account details? This would be similar to remote desktop apps that work anywhere. That way as long as the phone is connected to Wi-Fi the file can be pushed and flashed. I'm not certain that that is a viable option though.

Thanks! Yes, I could leave a socket stream connected to a server to receive updates/Roms over 4G and WiFi, preferably WiFi. User's choice of course. It wouldn't be too difficult. Thanks for the suggestion!

Great! That would change everything as users could flash things to their phones without being present.

Could the wipe data/cache option be implemented such that it could be selected using the PC app?

Yup, I could swap that to the jar. Have you tried the application the way it is now? I think the swaps would be very easy. I could just set it up as an android service, and the user could just forward their port to a public IP. Or it could just listen over port 80 and have a web portal type of thing.
