Bugjaeger Mobile ADB - USB OTG App
Bugjaeger tries to give you the expert tools used by Android developers for better control and deep understanding of your Android device internals.
Multitool that can save you the hassle of carrying a laptop.
If you're an Android power user, developer, geek, or hacker, this app should be in your toolkit.
How to use
1.) Enable developer options and USB debugging on your target device (https://developer.android.com/studio/debug/dev-options)
Note: On Huawei devices you might first need to turn on USB tethering before you enable USB debugging
2.) Connect the device where you've installed this app to the target device via USB OTG cable
3.) Allow the app to access USB device and make sure target device authorizes USB debugging
Inspecting device internals, running shell scripts, checking logs, making screenshots, sideloading, and many more tasks that are normally done on your laptop can now be performed directly between 2 mobile devices.
This app works as sort of Android to Android ADB (Android Debug Bridge) - it offers some features similar to ADB (Android Debug Bridge), but instead of running on your development machine, it runs directly on your Android device.
You connect your target device through USB OTG cable or through WiFi and you'll be able to play around with the device.
ADB protocol is supported also by Android devices other than phones & tablets. That means that you should also be able to control your Android TV, Wear OS watch, or even Raspberry Pi with Android Things OS and Oculus VR.

- file management - pushing and pulling files from device, browsing the file system
- search and connect to Android devices on your network that configured adbd to listen on port 5555

For some tricks and examples of what you can do, see
For starting a youtube video or url in browser, add following custom command (or paste this into shell) in the first tab
am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d "yt_url"
If you liked this app, check out the ad-free premium version which also contains additional features
- Enabled USB debugging in Developer options and authorise the development device
- Fastboot protocol support
This app uses the normal way of communicating with Android devices which requires authorisation.
The app does not bypass Android's security mechanisms or anything similar!
This means you won't be able to do some privileged tasks on non-rooted devices.
