Android WiFi Debugging

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

su  
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 192.168.0.101:5555  

Be sure to replace 192.168.0.101 with the IP address that is actually assigned to your device.
