Android Console Monitoring

This is just a quick run-down of the steps required to use Monitor to monitor Android console output:

  1. Physically connect the device to the computer via USB.
  2. At the console (under your Android SDK folder’s “platform-tools” subfolder), run: adb tcpip 8989
  3. Again at the console, run: adb connect
    (substituting your own device’s IP for the one shown above, of course.)
  4. Change to your Android SDK’s “tools” folder and type: monitor

That’s it!  After step 3, you can unplug the USB cable.
