Hello xda community !

I would like to share with you a new open-source project i just started. It's goal is to provide the ability to control your android device witch is connected through USB using mouse and keyboard in the same way it can be done on an emulator.

It's quite usable already but quite slow...

To try it, just go there and launch the JNLP file
Requirement :
  • Java Runtime >= 5
  • android sdk installed
  • your device is connected, in debug mode and detected by adb (type "adb devices" to check)

New in 0.4
  • Fix spacebar problem
  • Possible fix for droid display problem (keyboard still not working)
  • More keycodes mapped and shift key fixed

New In 0.3
  • Improved explorer
  • Launch URL from your computer
  • Key events fix
  • Hardware keys as buttons

New In 0.2
  • Basic file explorer (double clic on a file)
  • Video capture
  • First attempt to fix permission denied (non root device)
  • Device selection


Feel free to report issues using the issue tracker @googlecode :

My goodness!

It is choppy, but its such an elegant execution of the idea, love it.

Do you think there's much that can be done in future releases for the choppiness?


Well done!

Edit for MattStang: For the 'Unable to Launch application message', try running something like 'adb shell' first to make sure that the adb service on your computer is running
