Android – Run/install/debug applications over WiFi

There is a way to test your android applications in development over WiFi and I love to untether my phone and develop wirelessly. Here is the way to do it :

  1. Connect device via USB and make sure debugging is working.
  2. make sure your development phone and macbook in the same wireless network
  3. open your terminal
  4. get your phone IP address, here the way :
    1. adb shell
    2. netcfg
  5. adb tcpip 5037
  6. adb connect <DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS>:5037
  7. Disconnect USB and proceed with wireless debugging.
  8. adb -s <DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS>:5555 usb to switch back when done.

No root required!
