  1. What about discovering available adb servers on same wifi network?
    It’s just 255 tips to check, even if there are no way to get broadcast response

  2. Not working . My mac and device are in same wifi network but i get message as unable to connect . Is there anything else i need to take care of ?

  3. Didn’t work for me. Adb is installed properly. Neither the app, nor connecting manually works. Connecting manually = “Connection refused”. Same error in app.

    • hmm sounds like a networking problem, are your laptop/phone all connected to the same network, is there any firewall in between? connecting phone and mac(book) to the same wifi network should fix most problems. also some android apps say they enable an adb server on your phone but your phone must (not sure) but rooted… is this the case?

  4. Hi Steven , great idea and thanks for providing it here for free.
    I installed everything that is listed adb connect in terminal but your app cannot find the adb installation. I am on Sierra (low). I tried adding it manually, show hidden/system files is on , yet the manual navigation cannot see any of it!? Any ideas how to resolve this? is there a way i can manually modify the search path withing the app ? i tried looking at the plist for example, etc…Could it be something that relates to sierra?

    Thanks!
