Connect to an Android Device with ADB over TCP

After some days of developing Android programs,I find it a pain to plug and replug the MicroUSB hub from my Xiaomi 4 (Cancro) device.MIUI in Xiaomi does not provide a switch to turn on adb over tcp.So I have to come up with a way to turn on it manually.

After some Duckduckgoes I found just the way to turn on it.Now I am writing it here in order to remind me of this brilliant way.

Be Prepared:Terminal

All you have to do is

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

That could be better if you write it in a script.

ATTENTION

Notice the first line “su”?That means you need to have root access to your phone.And ADB over TCP will not work after you reboot your device.

And let me show a little off of my XPS 15 with Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Unity and Dash really did something!Numix theme and icon seem to be pretty pretty!
