    VNC Server on Droid

    http://code.google.com/p/android-vnc...downloads/list

    Not my work, but nobody had posted anything about it here and it's a good find (although needs some work)

    Download the binary and use adb to push it to /data
    chmod 755 on it, and then execute it with
    /data/androidvncserver -k /dev/input/event4 -t /dev/input/event3
    the -k specifies which event to use for keyboard, and the -t for the touchscreen.

    Although event3 is correct for the touch screen it doesn't work, also currently the screen is completely black.

    I still actually use it though, mainly to text significantly quicker wirelessly using my computer's keyboard.

    I'm posting this not only to let people know about this useful tool, but I'm also hoping a dev will put in the time to tweak it to work with touch and the screen. (It should just be finding what settings are wrong and changing them).

    So, you see the screen on the computer and you can use your mouse/keyboard to work in it?

    That's the result on most phones, with the Droid it needs some tweaking. It's no different than using VNC to control your computer, it's the exact same concept. The Droid though doesn't work correctly with touch or the screen, but because those features do work with other phones, all the coding is there, it just needs to be tinkered with.

    This seems to be a common thing with the Droid and screenshot apps (not being able to pull the screen)... I'll be curious as to what is causing it, and why its so different than other phones.

    Was about to post a new thread titled "VNC Server for Droid?" when I stumbled upon this thread. Really wish we had a VNC to Droid from PC app that worked.

    Anyone have any ideas whats the issue with this one?
    Keyboard and mouse indeed do work, but no video!

    Thanks for posting how to install this half working one.

    Do you mean an App on the Droid which shows us what's going on our PC?

    There is an App for that, it's called PhoneMyPC. I have it and it works amazingly.

    Just the opposite, an app that shows our droid's screen on the PC. useful if you want to text somebody without removing your phone from your pocket!!

    or using it remotely to activate GPS, and locate your phone

    actually tons of uses...if it ever works.

    Now that I have wifi tether, I sure wish I could VNC to my phone from tethered computers! Check my mailon my phone, read voicemails, open audio files, whatever! Remote Control my Phone!!

    Curious why event3 is the screen driver? When I get home, I'll play with some different #s
