Alright guys, I finally found a Java App that will actually control your phone from your pc. This is not complicated. Thanks to acid256 for this open source project.

If your looking to do screenshots, use the java screenshot program in this thread

Features
- Mouse and keyboard control FOR ROOTED DEVICES ONLY
- Landscape mode (right click)
- Video recording
- Basic file browser

INSTRUCTIONS
Download Android sdk. Place android-sdk-windows folder on root of your C:\
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Download(skip login) and install JRE(JDK) 6
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/widget/jdk6.jsp

Download the attached java file, unzip it, and just run it.
Place it anywhere you want. It doesnt have to be in the sdk folder like the screenshot program.

Make sure your phone is plugged in for a minute or two.
If you cant get it to control, run the automount app or dual mount sd widget.

Incubus26jc,
You are GOOD ! ! ! !

I've been Googling for something like this since I switched 100% to Android from WinMo (used MyMoblier).

Downloaded and tested it.
Works great!

Thank you so much for a great find!

Have chances to work via WiFi?
Because USB data cannot connect on Polaris, only charging

SOLVED!
I found program PicMe, which make control via browser or standalone applet.

It is a little laggy... but so was MyMobiler under WinMo.
No doubt, great android find!

ok so first off ill admit i am not a developer. i am tech savy but more so with program use and windows interface. i have absolutely no experience with serious programing.

i have a Droid, firmware 2.1-update1.
it is a company phone, so i dont feel comfortable rooting my device.

will there ever be a way to run this program, or one like it, without rooting my phone?

or does anyone know of a way i can dowload my phone data into an emulator, it run my apps in real time, live as if it was my phone, and then a way to upload any information or changes made to apps/info back onto the phone itself.

please excuse my noobness. just trying to learn as i go
