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 :
- Connect device via USB and make sure debugging is working.
- make sure your development phone and macbook in the same wireless network
- open your terminal
- get your phone IP address, here the way :
- adb shell
adb tcpip 5037
adb connect <DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS>:5037
- Disconnect USB and proceed with wireless debugging.
adb -s <DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS>:5555 usbto switch back when done.
No root required!
