I own several Android devices, and I'm always playing. well, tonight I was tweaking a few things over adb and got to wondering if I could use adb to connect from one Android device to another. Well, turns out it's pretty easy, if you're rooted...
Both devices need to be connected to the same wireless network.
Install adbWireless from the Playground (sorry, Play Store): https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...V2lyZWxlc3MiXQ..
You only really need it on the receiving device, but I have it on everything anyway.
Copy the Linux adb binary into /system/xbin/ and set the permissions to 755 (rwxr_xr_x), and reboot.
You only really need to do this on the controlling device, but may as well do it on all.
Fire up adbWireless on the receiving device, grant root privileges, and note the IP address
Fire up a Terminal Emulator on the other device, and enter: adb connect <IP address from other device> (you typically don't need to add the :5555 on the end.
Job done! Pretty handy when working from a slate!
I also run dd-wrt firmware on my router, which let's me assign static IPs by MAC address, so the IP for the devices are always the same.
