Let’s get that cable off your desk, well sort of.
Connect the device via USB and make sure debugging is enabled.
1. Open the terminal
adb tcpip 5555
2. Find the IP address:
adb shell ip route
adb shell netcfg
3. Connect to your device:
adb connect <DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS>:5555
4. Disconnect USB and proceed with wireless debugging.
To switch back to USB when done:
adb -s <DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS>:5555 usb
No root required.
