Android WiFi Debugging

According to a post on xda-developers, you can enable ADB over Wi-Fi from the device with the commands:

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

And you can disable it and return ADB to listening on USB with

setprop service.adb.tcp.port -1  
stop adbd  
start adbd  

From a computer, if you have USB access already

It is even easier to switch to using Wi-Fi, if you already have USB. From a command line on the computer that has the device connected via USB, issue the commands

adb tcpip 5555  
adb connect  

Be sure to replace with the IP address that is actually assigned to your device.
