Don't you find it a bit stupid to quote the whole op to ask a question ? Just sayin.

The [email protected] app should surely work with ubuntu cause its an java jar file, but the visual basic application you can try to run with whine i suppose.

Would love to try this app.
Sadly I can't acquire a connection via Wifi. I certainly enabled
all the needed options on my device (LG Optimus 4X HD [p880]),
but as soon as I click on the adb connection button a cmd window
comes up with the path C:\User\MyName\Downloads\Tools (probably the path where it expect adb to be)
and if I move via "cd" to my adb and run it nothing happens.

On second try I was able to change the path via the [email protected] part of the app
but still nothing happens when I hit the button besides the cmd window coming up.

Will try the usb way now.

EDIT: USB way works perfectly fine
Thanks for this!

for people who dont have adb enabled, i suggest you contact a kernel developer to automatically enable it in the default.prop and sideload the kernel in recovery!
i broke my S3 on stock so nothing was enabled.
i enabled adb via the default.prop and compiled the kernel and flashed in recovery(sideload).
now i have full control over the device.
thanks for the tool mate! i hope to see it cross compiled for linux soon aswell

Very nice! Works great. I have a suggestion, if it's even possible, a few months back I cracked the screen and digitizer at the same time. Turning the screen on would make the phone go haywire since it was registering multiple "touches" from the broken screen/digitizer. Anyway to implement this with the screen completely turned off? Just curious.

Some older versions of adb don't support wireless debugging, you also need to enable wireless debugging on your phone

I believe that would require turning off or disabling the digitizer somehow in the kernel.
