Connecting my laptop to RPi3 androidthings and building my first androidthings device

Once I had flashed the image and booted up my RPi3 androidthings, I connected to the wifi and androidthings reported my connected IP address as: 192.168.0.16.

From here in Step 2 – Connect the hardware, under #5:

https://developer.android.com/things/hardware/raspberrypi.html

I found this:

root@Inspiron-15R:~/Downloads# adb connect 192.168.0.16
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
connected to 192.168.0.16:5555
root@Inspiron-15R:~/Downloads#

So it seems I’m now wirelessly connected to the RPi3. So now I want to make an androidthings project on my laptop and deploy it on the RPi3 androidthings machine…  I’m now working on finding out how to do that.

So from this page:

https://developer.android.com/things/hardware/raspberrypi-kit.html

I click on “build your first device”:

https://developer.android.com/things/training/first-device/index.html

OK. That is a long drawn out document with many steps, so for now I will take a break.

 

How to shut down androidthings:

root@Inspiron-15R:~/Downloads# adb connect 192.168.0.16
connected to 192.168.0.16:5555
root@Inspiron-15R:~/Downloads# adb shell reboot -p
root@Inspiron-15R:~/Downloads#
