How can I connect to Android with ADB over TCP?android


This is really simple if your phone is rooted.

Download a terminal emulator from Google Play (there are lots that are free). Make sure that your Android device is connected to your Wi-Fi and get the Wi-Fi IP address. Open the terminal program and type:

setprop service.adb.tcp.port 5555
stop adbd
start adbd

Now go to your computer (assuming that you are using Windows) and create a shortcut on the desktop for "cmd.exe" (without the quotations).

Right click on the cmd shortcut and choose "Run as Administrator"

Change to your android-sdk-windows\tools folder


adb connect ***wifi.ip.address***:5555

(example: adb connect

adb should now say that you are connected.

Note: if you are too fast to give the connect command it may fail. So try at least two times five seconds apart before you say this doesn't work.


I am attempting to debug an application on a Motorola Droid, but I am having some difficulty connecting to the device via USB. My development server is a Windows 7 64-bit VM running in Hyper-V, and so I cannot connect directly via USB in the guest or from the host.

I installed a couple of different USB-over-TCP solutions, but the connection appears to have issues since the ADB monitor reports "devicemonitor failed to start monitoring" repeatedly. Is there a way to connect directly from the client on the development machine to the daemon on the device using the network instead of the USB connection or possibly another viable options?

How to do “adb logcat” via Wifi without connecting the device to the computer first?

There is no way to do that in devices that are not rooted,even for rooted ones you do realize that would be a security problem right ,anyone whose debugging is enabled could be connected then.

(No root required) There is one best, easy and with UI method for Android Studio

Android adb “Unable to open sync connection!”

I was having exactly the same problem, but I already had my phone connected to the computer's USB port. Sometimes disconnecting and reconnecting the cord worked but then it stopped working completely. However, disabling USB debugging on the phone and then re-enabling it has worked so far. Hopefully it keeps working! These fixes really seem like silly hacks.. I'm not sure what the underlying problem is.

This may also be related to a "too many open files" issue. I manually tried to install the app when getting the "sync" error above and that's when I got the "too many open files" clue. one brute workaround, based on some old posts, seems to be to restart the phone, and one google engineer suggested doing it twice, the second time before it goes into sleep mode the first time (details on why in the post).

That was a few years ago, and maybe they've fixed it, or just did some things to get around it in the usual cases and the reinstall-as-part-of-development is not a case that it addresses.
